Wow wow wow....this has continued to be a roller coaster. My SP mood tracker (which is one thing I have done consistently) looks like the Dow Jones index
Until this past week, it has been very up and down...but the trend has been up.
I've stuck with most of my planned program - including yoga, which has been an amazing addition to my life - and also added some supplements suggested by a truly helpful and knowledgeable SP friend
. This has helped me turn the corner, and for the past 4-5 days (knock on wood), I am feeling good!
I haven't stayed as true to my AF intentions as planned, and although it does not seem to have bothered me too much, I will be cutting it out completely again. The nearly 2 weeks I was completely AF were an amazing lesson in how very much better I feel on all levels when I don't drink at all. The big difference I notice is in my ability to meditate and feel 'connected' spiritually, and this is fast becoming more enjoyable to me than the short term buzz of a drink.
The next few days are busy with kids at home and DH working full-out, but I intend to set some more challenging health and fitness goals next week. I'm ready for it, and boy does THAT feel good!!
A huge THANK YOU again to my little group of incredible SP friends for helping me through this. I have counted on, and needed, your support and encouragement more than you could know.
