Just realized the post I wrote yesterday is titled Day 3 – it was actually Day 4…I am more into this than I thought!!
Today was an easy day. I had no cravings or desire to drink. I went to the gym and felt great in the workout, typically monday workouts are rough from binging over the weekend. It felt good to sail through the workout and not feel like dying! Or making promises to my body that I wouldn’t over do it ever again if I could just get through the workout.
Ive been counting macros on and off for a few months. I have started tracking again. I am on day 3 and am doing well. I always screwed up before because I would factor in 1-2 drinks for the day but would never stick to that! I would always drink more than I intended too. I think tracking will give me something else to focus on right now.
I am trying to fill my life with more happy, fun things so I don’t feel deprived or bored. I think I drank a lot when I was bored or lonely. Boredom I can combat but loneliness is something that I am going to have to learn to deal with. I’m not very good with feelings! I was in a 10 year relationship where feelings were thought of as a weakness, so I spent a lot of time hiding my feelings and trying to stuff them down or use alcohol to not feel anything. Looking back that should have been a sign the relationship wasn’t healthy but I was naive. And in love. Love makes you deal with weird shit.
I hope I have more easy days like today! I’m going to meditate and then finish reading Big Magic by Elizabeth GIlbert. Peace!
