Good things are happening today!
I have a running text with 2 of my best friends and this morning I just casually put it out there that I was done drinking for good. Guess what...the world didn't end. Time will tell how it will be the next time I'm around them and they are drinking and I'm not but it feels good to put it out there and plant the seed.
Also, I have been missing my group fitness classes for about 6 weeks now because I am trying to recover from plantar fasciitis. I've been wearing orthotics for a couple of weeks now and went to my dance class today. It felt so good to be back!
Speaking of exercising...I can think of so many times I went to the gym hung-over because I was trying to prove to myself that my drinking was not a problem. Of course sometimes I just felt too bad and couldn't make it but as long as I made it to class I could tell myself that I wasn't drinking too much. One of my favorite classes is on Sunday morning and it will feel so good to feel good in class!
My son (11) had noticed the other day that I had created a blog. He mentioned it again yesterday so I told him I had decided to stop drinking alcohol because I thought I was drinking too much and that's what the blog was about. That was really the end of it. I plan to talk to my kids more about all of this in the future.
