It is so late for me to be starting this but I wanted to check in and say I am still here. I decided to catch up on some blogs and leave comments, something I have been quite lax with recently.
I started reading a new blog http://shantiwantstobesober.blogspot.co.uk and she had a video (Gosh is that still the correct word?) about psychology but done in a really cool cartoon format drawn in real time. Go have a look.
Today was OK although I did get the major crave about 4 but rode the wave of emotions very well stopping at one point mid dog walk and not moving until I had taken 10 cleansing breaths. It was only then I realise how tense and wound up I was, I did it a few more times before I got home. Dinner was an impromptu steak dinner as it was 3 days out of date but such a beautiful thing and delicious, I always eat out of date food so no serious worries here. With dinner I had one Becks Blue, I seem to have done ok with AF beer but still don't dare try AF wine having tried it once only to the go buy REAL wine. Be careful of your triggers, some are fine others not just watch your behaviour around it and notice any compulsions.
In case you missed comments yesterday, myself, Red and TWTIK all signed up for Belle's 100 day challenge and I am quite motivated for the first time in ages. I have always resisted challenges and can be a bit defeatist but this seemed to catch me at the right time and I seized the chance. No regrets here and I hope the other two are still feeling good about joining.
Thank you for all the really encouraging comments yesterday, so lovely and wow did they help today.
