With friends I started another Whole 30 Day Challenge... basically eating clean, no sugar or processed items and of course, no alcohol. I haven't had any alcohol since Sunday actually. I was in bed on New Years Eve by 11 pm. It felt wonderful to wake up hangover free New Years Day. I had plenty of wine over Christmas week. I feel good going into the weekend, the kids and I have some fun things to do and I hope to take down the Xmas decorations. BF is going away for a long weekend, so I won't be tempted to have some wine. We bought a fake tree this year... I fought it, the BF brought it home and you know what, I love it!! It looks perfect and there is no mess. I'm not even in a hurry to take it down. This weekend I will take down the knick knacks and maybe leave the tree up a little longer. If people can put tress up a month before Christmas, I can keep mine up a little while longer after, right??
I haven't had any urges to drink at all but again its only been 4 days. I'm feeling good this week b/c I have been eating right, exercising and last night I slept like a baby. I haven't slept that good since my last 30 Day Challenge. I know I will get moody soon from the sugar withdrawal. I ate enough cookies last month, more than I the last 2 years I bet. I gained 8 lbs since mid November... that weight needs to come off quick.
I was doing so well last Fall, eating better, exercising and not drinking. I'm looking forward to that again.
That's the plan this month.... focusing on my health!
