Sober October Journal- Day 31

Well. It is stormy and I am sitting in my living room in a pretty somber mood. Figured I’d write because I just feel so..blah. Just got back from a funeral with my husband, my good friend’s father (in-law) passed away this week. It was a fairly sudden passing; he was diagnosed with cancer and…

Sober October Journal- day 28

Hello everyone! We are ever creeping to the finish line. Yee! I am just sitting down from my lunchtime yoga session. I saw the yogi I follow on YouTube Adriene, had a fun Halloween themed class that she posted yesterday so I went with it; which Halloween seems to be the running theme all week…

Hello WordPress friends! Wooo! We are so close to the end, canya feel it!? Actually, I have had a lot of fun writing during this challenge as often as I have, keeping accountable, so thinking that after Saturday this all goes bye bye is sad. 🙁 I know, it isn’t like I can’t keep journaling…

Sober October Journal- day 24

Well, if there was a day to have a drink to shake off stress, it would be this one. I got woken up this morning by a phone call. It was from my eldest sister in Italy. She was calling to tell me that my dad was being rushed to the hospital with chest pains….

Sober October Journal- day 19

Hey everyone! Nineteen days! Woo! I am getting closer to the Sober October finish line. If you are just jumping on board, I started the challenge earlier than October 1st. It just felt better in my mind to start the challenge on a Monday (9/28) versus that Thursday the 1st. Obviously I am neurotic. 🤦🏻‍♀️…

Hi! It is currently day 17. Doing great. Still haven’t drank a drop of alcohol, have been conscious about portion control, and exercising 3-4 times a week. I weighed myself today.

Hey guys n gals! Holy moly, I am beat today. Didn’t have the best of sleep last night. My eyes popped open at 4:30AM, where I bounced in and out of a million thoughts till 6:30AM, when all the alarms in the house went off waking up everyone. 😆 My life in a nutshell right…

It’s been a full week, everyone! 🎉 To date I have been keeping myself pretty positive about this whole sobriety this month.
