I can’t believe I am hitting my 80th Day AF!! Feeling so great about it too! Honestly – I have now been thinking about the ‘end’ of my 100 days as the holidays and socials approach – but with that, I am also looking ahead to starting the NEW year with another 100 days.
This stint has been a learning experience. Learning to deal with stress and emotions in the ‘raw’ – so the strength that I’m getting is not just from my workouts (although I’m proud to say that with the AF days – I’ve been consistently doing my workouts daily NO EXCUSES).
I’m mindful of the time that I’ll allow myself drinks and it’s kind of a test to see how I do – if I revert to old patterns and negative thinking in my head, obsessing over should I or shouldn’t I? Right now it’s an easy NO I’m not drinking. And people respect that and even applaud it saying they could never do it!
What has definitely helped is finding other things to occupy my time – more creative and productive things than sitting my ass on a couch to watch TV (which by the way I rarely do now).
Just yesterday I went to do some nature crafting and created these two lovely pots to decorate our front porch (I just have to add some bling to it today).
My last post was about my daughter deciding to move out and this still leaves a big KNOT in my chest – but I’m working through it as best I can. She came over last night for the first time since she left. She wants to take her rabbit with her which I wasn’t sure was a great idea because there are 2 pitbulls where she is staying – but I have to let it go and I told her if anything happens to him it’s her responsibility. We had a nice visit/night last night and I hope today will be good too.
I am still praying that my older daughter secures the apartment for December 15th so they can be together – and I will feel that much better that both my daughters are in a ‘nicer’ place together.
Until then – I’m pushing forward to reach my 100th day! And working out consistently building those muscles in my physical body too! It’s all about balance… mind/body and spirit! Choosing well … and sometimes allowing some ‘cheats’ (I still have a hard time with chocolate and chips cravings lol)… But overall I’m very proud of where I stand today!
