29 days without an alcoholic drink …. wow i really didn’t think i could do it, although came close once or twice 😦 to cracking the top off a bottle of cider that has sat on the kitchen side since before i started the challenge.
Stressed by the kids…
Friday & Saturday night habits…
Just at the end of a good day…
all reasons why i would have a drink, started with just a glass… the glass grew… then, well once a bottle is opened you might as well finish it.
At the beginning of October the government started advertising a stop smoking campaign called Stoptober and as i don’t smoke i thought i have a go at stopping something that i really enjoyed.. and i’ve nearly done it 🙂
To run alongside the No drinking, i thought i’d add in some healthy eating and try to get on top of my ongoing battle to lose some weight too, which i think i’ve made pretty good head way by loosing 7lb. So what started off as a test to my ability to stick with something i think i’ve done pretty good.
As a reward hubbs has promised to cook a lovely meal with which i will also enjoy a glass of wine. (date to be confirmed)
