July 1st was Canada Day and boy was I tempted to join in and have a drink while at the beer tent at the fairgrounds. The smell was all around me… but I resolved to make July a dry one in an effort to keep striving to reach my health goals.
You see I was invited to share my transformation story at a local coach event on August 6th and I want to be able to share sincerely about how I’m succeeding FINALLY… and I will open myself up to be vulnerable and share that a big part of the reason I have not been successful to date is because of alcohol.
I will share about how my sister passed at the age of 50 and how as I approach my own 50th birthday – I am reflecting on my life and my choices.
So I will keep choosing to strive to be #Fitby50 and seek the balance that I have sought for so many years… I may not be completely AF forever – but I am certainly improving my stats and that my friends is success! Harm reduction – weight loss – healthier mind, body and spirit!
Here’s to my 15th day in a row and to making it to the end of July completely dry and sober!
