Day 297 AF out of 324 Days
Tuesday, July 02, 2019
I had to get 'real' with myself and acknowledge how far I've come rather than feel like I've fallen short of my goal to be 100% AF.
I'm not resigned to follow the 90/10 rule with my eats, drinks and workouts (although I am limited post surgery to doing very little for another 4 weeks).
I've been off work since my surgery (June 17th) and took two weeks totally 'off' - including not logging in or being online and it was a much needed break. What I've learned is that I need to allow myself some wiggle room and I need to not put so much pressure on myself to be 100% perfect... because it just ends up bringing me to crash and binge and fall completely off course.
July 1st was my reset to doing a Dry July with the Cutting Down the Booze team and my Facebook AF groups (Lose da Booze and another closed group for age 50+ members).
It's summer time and it's not always easy to say no to drinks - but there are so many great alternatives out there. I made a batch of Sassy Water to have tomorrow... a great recipe for helping to reduce bloating. I used mint leaves in mine.
Hoping to reset my sleeping schedule tonight too as I've been having a hard time sleeping with the pain/discomfort. Did a bit of walking today and ate better today than yesterday and to me that's a WIN!
Acknowledging my WINS versus my shortcomings! Hitting 297 Days AF in my one year period which will end August 12, 2019 - at over 90% AF days!
