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 ….
