I'm alive & today is Day # 99

Sorry I haven't blogged in a while... life getting in the way to blog but here is a quick update:


At the close of today, I will be 99 days sober.


I am sick of the snow.


I leave Saturday for a week vacation in South America.


I am seeing a therapist for my food issues. 


I haven't exercised in weeks.


I haven't weighed myself in weeks.


I was just diagnosed with high BP and taking meds for 4 weeks now.  My BP is low now.


I have a 10 K in less than a month and I am not trained but I will run/walk it.


I have a fear of the dentist and haven't been in 3 years.  I had an emergency root canal Monday and going back today for more. 


After dinner I read or watch TV to relax.


I have been to many social events and bring my own sparkling water.


I vowed to continue my 100 day Sober Challenge and pledged 180 days.


I took my first into to Photography Class and hope to take lots of picture on vacation with my new camera.


I have the attitude that I will do what I want to relax and stay sober.  I'm not stressing over a dirty house or the little things.


I am happier and don't "scream" like before.


Mornings are more peaceful and sometimes we laugh as a family. 


I enjoy dinners w/ the family more now and I think we communicate better.


I can tell I am more present for my children and I think they do too.


Cravings will go away, they don't last forever.


I don't really worry about what people think or what they will say when they notice I am not drinking.


I am nervous about my sobriety on vacation at an all inclusive, with no children and 4 other couples.


Today is day 99 and I will not drink.  I am grateful for my journey and all the people that have supported me along the way.  Tomorrow is Day 100 and I will not drink.


I will take tons of pictures on vacation and if I can secure wifi, I will post an update.
