I did it! One week sober! Also,
Friday, December 07, 2012
Woo Hoo!!! I did it! Let me tell you about my day yesterday. I went to a bar and grill that I use to get hammered at about twice a week. I got dinner and diet coke! Normally, I don't drink diet coke because of the chemicals..it did NOT taste good, won't be doing that again!
So then I went to the local bar with some friends. This is the bar I feel very comfortable in so, of course, I use to get hammered here also. Well I didn't drink at all! And my friends did! They tried to get me to have "just one" and I struggled for a quick minute. But then, I watched how they kept saying "I'm just going to have one more" ...five for 6 times. I don't want to be controlled by a drink like that ever again. It is eye opening to watch people you know get drunk while you stay sober. You think "I don't even act that differently when I drink". Not true! Wow. They weren't completely drunk but they still acted different. I feel really bad for making my boyfriend baby sit me for the past 3 years. I'd hate if the roles were reversed, he is much more patient than me!
As for winter running, holy crap this "winter" weather is awesome! 55 degrees? Perfect! We are usually covered in snow in December! It had been really surprising to run in different conditions. I am one of those people that gets cold in weather under 75. We have ran in freezing rain a few times and it wasn't bad at all! Pouring rain is only bad because it is hard to see. The only bad part is we lose sun after the first mile because we run after work.
Alright, that's all I got! Happy Friday everyone!
