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

Hi guys! I am back! We spent a fantastic few days eating and hiking in the mountains of New Hampshire, and guess what? I stuck hard to my sobriety challenge during this trip. I am so proud of myself for not giving in. It was tempting. Believe me, I was thinking of giving myself a…

Sober October Journal- day 10

Day ten! Day ten! Day ten! Hot damn, day ten! Yup I just sang that like The Old Man from A Christmas Story after he reads his telegram. Ten days of no drinking. No junk food. Eating right. Keeping an active exercise schedule- all while I haven’t turned into a jerk. I’d say we all…
