13

Today I started my challenge for 2017 which is 100 days sober and 100 days of yoga. This takes me to the 13th April, I chose this end date as the number 13 which is unlucky for some actually has a very sentimental meaning to me.  

I have to say that today was easy and I thought this would the case, I imagine I’ll start to get scratchy about day 6 if past experience is anything to go by however I am hoping that having the yoga side of the challenge will help guide me through the mass of emotions I will face, again. 

One other change is my coffee consumption, I am going to start reducing my intake with the view to eliminate it from my diet completely. I really believe it stresses out my body and adds to my mood swings and anxiety.

Im really excited about this and I know a lot of what I have said above isn’t new but I am feeling positive and full of will power, I just hope I can keep it going beyond April this time.

I am gluten free, sugar free and have stuck to the organic groceries so feel I am on the right track. 

I am inspired by other bloggers daily and will read your blogs all the way to April to keep me motivated. 

I recently read this quote by a famous actor who I believe is 15 years sober.

Ewan McGregor: “I wasn’t someone who could smoke or drink in moderation,and I recognised that those things would kill me…. What kind of regret would I have if I had to tell my children or my wife that I was dying because of something I could have done something about? I didn’t want to be that kind of man.”

I hope to blog once a week and share my experiences with you, share some recipes and maybe some before and after yoga pictures, who knows ….

  1. Good luck for this. It is hard and requires a lot of discipline and determination. I tried to do it before but my coffee intake kept on increasing although I did my best to eliminate coffee. After few days I let this cleansing diet down!
