Day 4 is in the BOX! I will say … today the voices calling me to drink were a bit louder. The hot summer like weather. The sunshine … I don’t know but I was craving a drink more than the past 3 days. So I shifted my thoughts from this to what I would do when I got home. Since I was going to my bf’s place I really only had a bit of time to kill – so on my way home from work went to the dollar store to pick up items needed for work and by the time I got home I had less than an hour before he was picking me up.
So I kept busy and focused on what I wanted to accomplish instead of lingering on the thoughts about having a drink and told myself – I CAN do this for 30 days. It’s what I committed to and I am not backing down this time.
I also got a package of supplements to hopefully help with my cravings, metabolism and efforts on losing some of this extra weight. It would be a waste to try to get on this regimen and drink too. I want to see what I can accomplish in the next 25 days as I plan to start taking them tomorrow. I researched it and they are simply a good mix of natural supplements (I used to work at a health food store). I figure if nothing else – this will help me avoid the booze as I don’t want this purchase to be a waste of money.
Let’s see what the next 25 days brings and what my progress will be on July 1st when I record my weight and measurements (part of the other motivator to take a break from the booze).
Now it’s 9:18pm and I’m waiting for my daughter to get home … unwinding a bit with the nature channel music and will be heading to bed.
YAY me – day 4 done and this is the longest in a row stretch I have had this year… Honestly another reason I wanted to do this for June as I’d like to improve my AF stats for the rest of 2015.
