All good this end – yesterday (day 4) I exercised, meditated, checked balances, stuck to a planned work schedule (got a lot done) and did not drink.
I’m going to try harder with my food though, some of you have inspired me. I thought that stopping drinking gave me a free pass to do whatever I wanted with regards to the rest of my diet but seeing as being booze free is proving easier than I’d expected (I know, amazing) I might push myself a bit more to cut out sugar/sweets (not fruit). Yesterday, with all my busy work-ness I ate not one but TWO slices of cake. I rely a lot on sugar to get me through the day and know it’s not a good thing and it only creates a slump afterwards – so for the rest of the week at least I’m going to do NO PROCESSED SUGAR/CAKES and only a small chunk of very dark chocolate if totally desperate.
The mood continues to be deliciously good. Not hyper up or down just mellow and clear and calm. I’ll write a full post about this but my head is a total different place without booze. Maybe at the end of this I’ll discover I didn’t need self-help, I just needed to stop drinking.
I’m also properly tired – but a nice tired, not a depressed tired. I’m sleeping like a LOG and pressing snooze on the alarm every morning. Looking forward to an epic sleep this weekend.
xx love to you all xx
ps Gabby Bernstein mentioned the quote above at her lecture on Saturday and I liked it.
pps – I’m listening to Nick Mulvey on Spotify. I’m so out of touch with music but I just saw him mentioned on a friend’s FB page so I went to listen. He’s really nice. So there you go, my music tip for the day.
