Going 3 days without drinking isn't new to me. I take 2-3 day breaks often, esp. if I over did it over the weekend & am feeling cruddy from it. Sometimes I even do little health kicks where I might go a week or a couple of times almost a month.
But I decided to go to my "ladies night" last night. It's a great group of lady friends that just get together - usually on Tuesdays but it's sparatic, just whenever someone offers to host. Everybody brings food and wine & just talks about life & whatnot. Last night was to watch election results. And I was happy to come with a big bottle of kombucha. Another lady there wasn't drinking and shared it with me. It was wonderful to see my friends, get support for what I'm going through & not worry about needing to drink. And it was great to be able to drive home not worried that maybe I had a little too much or that I might be pulled over. So far so good & I'm feeling happy about my new lifestyle chioce. Treating my body right feels good. :)
I've been inactive for a couple of years now, for no reason in particular. Anyway, I want to get active again and start eating healthier. I do okay in the beginning, but then I lose motivation and have trouble holding myself accountable to stick with a commitment. Any suggestions?
