Today is day 31. Every day I wrote this in my journal: Today I remain sober and am very happy to do so! I never really understood the “one day at a time” theory until now. It really keep things in perspective. Although, I do feel like this is my forever path, thinking of itContinue reading “30 days Alcohol Free”

Difficult times survived without Drinking!
In the past everything was an excuse to drink. I drank to reward myself for working hard and I drank to deal with stress and to celebrate success. Any reason was a good reason in my mind. I “deserved” it and I considered it my right! I drank a lot and often! Over the yearsContinue reading “Difficult times survived without Drinking!”
9 days Alcohol Free -Changes in Me
Just a quick note to those considering the change to an Alcohol Free (AF) life: I was a gray area drinker for years. Consuming bottles and bottles of wine each week and functioning at a decent level. I got by. I faked our the world. But I wasn’t fooling myself. I wasn’t living my trueContinue reading “9 days Alcohol Free -Changes in Me”
Vegan Fajitas OMG – AMAZING!
Vegan fajitas Omg this was the best. I just had to share it. As a newer vegan cook I know I’ve struggled to find the flavor I desire in the past but this one was out of the park with great flavor! And I created the recipe myself! I’m not a chef by any meansContinue reading “Vegan Fajitas OMG – AMAZING!”
Here we go again! This is it.
So, I’ve been MIA from my blog for a good while. Reason being was I wasn’t willing to face the facts. I knew deep down that short term abstinence wouldn’t work for me and that I would have to make the decision to abstain and be sober for good/forever. Until I was willing to admitContinue reading “Here we go again! This is it.”
My perfect day vs my real day
I often dream about what I would do if I didn’t have to work, be a housekeeper at home, cook and clean, manage my household… what would my perfect day consist of if I could make it however I want it? I spend so much time working in and on my business, running the familyContinue reading “My perfect day vs my real day”
Experiment on myself
So, I’ve done this experiment several times and it always yields the same results. Gray area drinking is a real issue many face and I am definitely one of those people. I started the year 75 days sober. I finished that test (experiment) and I had lost 12 pounds and I was feeling amazing. IContinue reading “Experiment on myself”
It’s Night and Day
Today is day 66 alcohol free! As I wake up early and reflect on my life this morning I’m very intrigued by the vast difference I feel. It truly is like night and day and like there is a good me and a “bad” me. That’s funny really because I know I’m not “bad” butContinue reading “It’s Night and Day”
Accepting the small wins
Today is my 45th day of no alcohol and 37th day on the 75 Hard challenge. I have to say, it’s been an interesting journey so far. This is the longest I’ve gone alcohol free in my adult life (besides during pregnancy). The last 37 days have been the most I’ve exercised consistently for manyContinue reading “Accepting the small wins”

I am so excited that I have made it to this day! I’m 30 days without alcohol and I’m not stopping! I wanted to share a few thoughts about this journey. This time it’s been different. I think I was finally really committed. Why? I’m not sure besides the fact that something clicked in myContinue reading “30 days Alcohol Free”
