An alert just popped up on my phone to remind me that it’s been ONE MONTH of no alcohol!!! That’s such a huge accomplishment for me! woohoo!!!
First, I gave up diet coke, which I haven’t touched since (at the end of this month will be 6 months diet coke free!!!), and now I have quit drinking for a whole month!!!
I’m just kicking my goals butt’s left and right over here 😉 Watch out!
Some of you may think that giving up drinking for a month is easy, but it’s not easy around my group of friends and even family. Alcohol is everywhere, always! This is sad to admit, but the last time I went a month without drinking was probably BEFORE I ever started drinking alcohol. There may have been a week or two here and there that I didn’t drink, but NEVER have I gone a whole month.
By giving up alcohol lately, I feel so much better. I wake up on the weekends feeling well rested and ready to take on the day. Instead of laying in bed all weekend with a stupid hangover, I’ve been able to get work done around the house, get my workouts in and avoid as many cheat meals as I normally would have when drinking. Drinking on the weekends always led to poor food choices late at night and the next day. I usually wouldn’t think twice about grabbing a burrito or pizza at 3am after the bars closed!
My body is happy with me 🙂
What is the longest you’ve gone without drinking any alcohol?
- #78. No alcohol for a month
