I’m on day 54 of the 100 day challenge! Woot!!
To celebrate day 50 I went for a nature hike. I explored two areas that I have not visited before. Since I have only lived in this part of the country for two years there are plenty of things to check out that are close by. I’ll post some pictures from the hike at the end of this post.
Nothing very exciting to report. Day 50 was just like any other day. Once I hit day 100 I don’t think that I will pay much attention to the accumulating sober days. Temptation has been few and far between. Whenever I get a little urge to drink it is usually easy to suppress. I find that the urge comes fast, and tends to leave just about as fast. It never seems to be a prolonged fight.
The other night. Right around day 50 in fact, I had a crazy dream. In the dream I was drinking and it horrified me! When I woke up I was tremendously relieved that I indeed had not drank. I guess I’ve done a good job of mentally conditioning myself to despise alcohol hehe. The thought of drinking no longer is associated with warm fuzzy feelings or good times. It’s just pure revulsion.
It’s the weekend so I am back at the lake. Grandma went in for a routine doctor appointment yesterday and they decided to send her to the hospital. Looks like she is going to be there for at least a few days. Being 92 this is not unusual. The good thing is that not all of the hospital trips are a big deal. Some of her ailments tend to be mysterious. The doctors just can’t figure it out.
Being here alone has led to a very nice relaxing Saturday. I miss having Grandma around but it’s also nice to enjoy the beautiful weather by the lake and just chill.
Everything else is going well. My diet has continued to move in a more healthier direction. The binging on sweets is over. I knew I would get sick of that 🙂 I’m starting to incorporate more fruit now and I am back to my normal weight. I would like to build some muscle but I’ve never been very good at adhering to an exercise routine.
My positive attitude and good mood are also sticking around. That’s nice! I’m still not using my personal time to do all the things I want, but that is ok. At least I am not drinking. When it comes to being more responsible and motivated I am willing to give that some time.
Here of some hiking pics. Enjoy!
