The day is finally here

Monday, January 05, 2009

I've been setting myself up for this day for the last week. Getting ready to cut back (out) the booze, eat better again. It seemed last night I couldn't get to sleep I was so ready to commit to doing this today. I've been AF for three days now, which is a big deal for me. It's really a good thing to wake up and not curse daylight for the headache it used to bring.

I tried to get some SP workout videos on my Tivo in the living room since I don't the neighbors seeing my flab bouncing all around in the office window like some suburban nightmare. That didn't work so I trotted 2 miles around the neighborhood in my sweats and a T. Don't know which is worse.

Spent last night cooking my meals and getting them ready for the week. Turned out pretty well if I do say so myself. Never thought of myself as the Barney Rubble kind of guy taking a lunch pail to work but at least I don't propel my truck with my feet. (thinking, hey..new exercise).

Hoping I can somehow keep this up this weekend. Grandpa died and I'll be going to Colorado for the funeral and staying with relatives. I refuse to let the first setback knock me off-track. I'll deal with it and manage the food pushers gently. If not I'll politely point out that if I continue to eat the junk they are pushing, they'll be at my funeral next lining up the next victim! emoticon

    Good for you! I know the struggle of giving up the alcohol but I find that I sleep much better when I don't drink. I'm sorry for our loss and I think your determination to politely refuse the offerings of food after the funeral will pay off big time!

    Good luck!
