Update and Halloween 2020

Hey Everyone! Just wanted to say hello and check in since the end of Sober October. Hello!! Excitedly, I broke sobriety on Saturday night with the best zombie sangria that I ever have made. Like I mentioned, we had our closest friends over for a tiny Halloween get together after the kids went trick o’treating….

Sober October Journal- LAST DAY??

Welp. I think my calculations were off because this is day 33. I swear I counted 35! Eh I guess it doesn’t really matter cuz it’s ovahhhhh! I did it! I have reflected on the past month, a lot. Especially over these past few days where life challenged my stress levels. This has been my…

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 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. 🤦🏻‍♀️…

Sober October Journal – day 17

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. I was happy to see that I dropped another pound. Yay! Just a few healthier, mindful changes along with sobriety can add up to…

Sober October Journal- day 16

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…

Sober October Journal – day 14

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…
