No desire to drink yet. Had a very boring night last night. Still didn’t desire to drink. Read my book and went to bed early. I wanted to get up early and walk, but I couldn’t sleep well and I am super tired and achy today.
I am planning on going at least for a short walk soon. I am feeling kind of down in the dumps and I’m not sure why. It may be the gloomy weather, the fact that I didn’t get up really early to walk like I wanted to or that the unstructured summer days are just getting to me. Plus, my weight is way up by like 4 pounds. It’s been stable for the past 6 months that I’ve been watching it. I think it is time to really buckle down on the nutrition and workouts. I would like to start doing more strength training and less cardio– or the same amount of cardio and add strength.
Our first whole day home was yesterday and I planned to go to a noon meeting. We ended up having a lazy morning and before I knew it it was almost 11:30 and I hadn’t showered yet so I didn’t make it. I am going to go today for sure, I think that will help me feel better.
I am hoping to be more light/clear headed and motivated after my walk. But it is almost 9:00 so I guess I better get moving. No matter how unmotivated and poopy my mood is, I am SO grateful for day 6 and where I am at right now! I feel confident that I can overcome this and make it to day 100 (I made it to 90 days this past spring and felt GREAT!).
I will put sobriety first. If I need to lay around all day, then I will lay around all day. If I need to eat ice cream all day, then I will eat ice cream. If I need to keep busy, then I will keep busy. Sobriety will come first, no matter what!
