You guys sound good!! emoticon Helene and Cheri

Wedding was fabulous!!!Odd- as so storybook but as friends of the groom I think he got what he needs..
Everyone dancing having fun.I found a beautiful colorful dress.
I got compliments! People said looking good- ha I am happy but eating and drinking what I want- being this age I know I will need to get back to ST and flexibility and not be indulging.

We then went to a party after. So! - lots of fun though and plenty of water etc so felt fine the next day. Water is key. Had a martini and wine and beer and some cognac and beer at party- so I think if one indulges having water and eating too+ being healthy to begin with are important.

Enjoying having youngest around he is able to work from home for where he works in Palo Alto
My second kid - DD and her BF are coming today- we arre doing our own version of feast of 7 fishes-I am not Italian but anyhow- they like fish so I am off veg for today....but vegan for x-mas as oldest kid and partner come on the 25th. DD- child number 3 is in Texas with her BF

I can't wait! Got great presents!!
On the 26th we might go see Knives Out

Simply having a wonderful christmas time emoticon Hope you all are too!

and as for AF etc.. I know I am doing a dry January for sure. Contemplating 1YNA
Cuz- the happy does not come from the martinis etc - it comes from having my sh*t together!

Bizi- hope you get nail fixed!

Helene emoticon very good!! And there are so many yummy non alcoholic beverages.

Wedding on Sunday. DEcorating room today or tomorrow with DS- we have a silly tradition with all kinds of fun stuff. Solstice!- means we gain daylight back. emoticon

Eve of 25th- DD and her boyfriend over and we shall have dinner and then I get to see 3 of my kids plus- shall be fun.

I'm in hibernation mode as far as exercise- my workout room is our living room so I just put my effort into cleaning and a bit of stretching and then am happy to have my space back on the 27th/ a bit later on

Happy Friday! Last day of work for 2019 for me and Day 111 AF and day 295 AF for 2019!!

I went to my former team social where many were having booze but I was happy with my AF drinks.

Today also marks the 18th anniversary of my mom's passing.

I'm very grateful for my sobriety and for this group!

Wendy emoticon emoticon emoticon 1,000 days! wow- could have been Maureen or Green Eyed Lady too th atmentioned Annie Grace- so happy to hear you found what worked for you - you sound great.

Bizi- hope your ankle gets better. Sometimes it is hard to take care of ourselves when taking care of so many. I have 2 cats and one is 21 and she has a funk at times- she is possibly going back to condo. As my sis is gradually able to move back. Hope so

so- I'm Mod throughout holidays and happy with that. I see no reason not to do a dry January.
Feb- a big wedding and my DH officiating- I'm the godmother lol. It is my neices wedding and I shall probably be mod- or possibly AF. I don't actually care about the drinking as I know it is just going to be fun.

2020- I have a half marathon I am signed up for but I also plan on running a few other races. Getting down to race weight-trying to figure what that is- somewhere under 130.
I'm 5'5".
And- I know we will be buying a house!

We leave saturday morning.
Hattie is being boarded at the vets(She has to have daily dressing changes) and hazel will be at the house having a pet sitter make visits every other day.
I saw five clients today. First new one was 99 years old living alone in her home and even drove a bit. She was so sweet, she has amazing hair for her age, curls and thickness. very unusual.....I will see her again in 3 months.
Another 95 year old who makes me laugh. She is in good health and I see her every 2 months. I had lunch with my friend Melissa. I gave her a gift card to a nice restaurant. I think she was surprised. We finished decorating the house....Have 2 trees up, a small one on the dining room table then a bigger one in the living room.The small one has all of the smaller ornaments and bulbs. Enjoy looking at it there. The bigger tree is decorated with the bigger bulbs. Both are prelit which makes it nice and easy. They will stay up until mardi gras. I won't be posting much while we are away.
Leave saturday spend the night in Memphis, eat some good bbq and listen to music. Sunday get into Indianapolis to stay with Jeffs Mom. His only brother Brian, just bought a house 5 minutes from her so that is wonderful!
Am excited to see what he has done. There will probably be snow still there..it is in the forecast. We will have a christmas eve supper and presents with his mom, brother and our 2 friends Dan and Maggie.
Christmas day we drive up to northern Indiana, One mile from the michigan border, out side of south bend. We will stay at my parents house for 3 days. My 2 sisters and hubbys and adult children will be there as well.
I am missing as I write my twin sisters first grand baby...she is 2 months old tomorrow and was in Indy for a week. Timing wasn't right so we missed seeing them....sad about that. They have been sending pictures so that is fun. Truth is I don't know when we will get to see them....sad about that.
My great nieces name is Emmerson Lou. They are calling her Emmy Lou.
She was born Oct 21st the day I started my diet.


Jeff just said there were tornadoes that did some damage in the northern part of the state. We have had rain and it is warmer than usual. The storm brings in a cold front, high tomorrow of 49.It is 76 right now.


Saw my chiropractor tonight after work and he adjusted me which doesn't feel good but it eventually does. He is treating my sprained ankle. Am not a good patient....not doing my exercises cause they hurt.....and because I am lazy....that is the truth!
It is getting late and we need to do hatties dressing change. She needs it smells..
sigh
good night

emoticon Just thought I would check in here as it's been a long time. I was poking around the site and printing off some lower body and core workouts as I am going to start doing some morning strength training. It's too hard after work this winter to get much else done as I mostly go ride instead. That's a good workout in itself but it doesn't really get my heart rate up and make me sweat, especially when it's -4 outside. emoticon

So for me, today is a pretty special day in that I hit 1000 days AF. I can't believe it. I would never have dreamed I could do that three years ago. I was drinking pretty much at least one bottle of wine every night. More on weekends. Ugh. I am so glad I stopped. I credit it mostly to Annie Grace, This Naked Mind and some wonderful person who mentioned her on this very thread about exactly three years ago. Thanks to you, whomever you are.........

So, to all of you here, I know it's not easy. But it can be done. Keep trying. One day it will stick, if you want it to.

Have a great Monday!

emoticon on your great AF streak Bizi!! So proud of you!!

I posted a couple of blogs (yesterday and today) on my LoseDaBooze site... this one today was about the weight gain and AF days and their co-relation. www.losedabooze.com/weight-loss-and-
af
-days/


There are 16 Days left in 2019 and I'm proud to say I've broken the pattern of drinking days more than AF days ... today is day 106 and day 290 AF in 2019...

Here's to letting go of what no longer serves you so that you can make space for bigger and better things!

Well I survived another party alcohol free. emoticon
I spoke to people and did not have social anxiety.
He has a huge pool table in his living room, play a bit and was terrible!
Only had an awkward moment when a woman came
up to me and noticed I was drinking tea.
She made mention of it..."tea" she said and
muttered something else, I walked away. weird.
At 1145pm almost 5 hours later. I said to hubby that I wanted to leave.
He agreed.
I was tired of all of the people getting drunk.
The chili was good with some sour cream.
Had a really great salad, lots of different veggies and a few apple chunks.
Just really small portions of carbs:tiny home made sour dough bread.
2 pita chips and a very small edge of lemon bar.
Regular smokehouse and wasabi almonds.
I drank tea the rest of the evening.
They drank margaritas!!
To be honest I am a little snacky
but it is so late I should not eat anything.

I continue to follow a whole food plant based vegan-will have some treats with family during holiday season. Looks like I will see 140's in January emoticon

I'm mod with the drinking - just allowing it at events- and may do the 1YNB in 2020-/ or possibly begin sooner as I still think it would be interesting to do

Thanks EM!
I had a pork loin with collards and turnips and beets for lunch.
Jeff is gone so I went and picked up 2 chicken quarters
(that was 2 thighs and 2 legs) for dinner and a pint of low carb(high fat and calories600 for the pint) only 4 net carbs. and oh so good and creamy and satisfying!Sweetened with sugar alcohols.

I worked late again but only saw 5 clients.
One man declined services as he had just been to the foot doctor.
That was fine by me because that would have put me really late.

I hate coming home in the dark.
I need to do some paper work that is on my desk.
have a nice evening and thank you for your support!

50 days Alcohol free!
stuck on 180....10 pound weight loss in 7 weeks.
Food today: coffee with half and half and stevia.
Quick 20 minute Lunch: 8oz of chicken salad with apples and walnuts.
Late 8pm Dinner: 1/2 cup of cottage cheese and a low carb chocolate slim fast, bottle.
I have chewed gum and drank zevia, colas sweetened with stevia,
cream soda and ginger root beer.
Now I am not hungry so that is good.
I hope that I will have more time for lunch....I missed my veggies today!
Worked late for me, saw 6 clients when I usually see 4. Out of the house at 8: 45am and home 7:45pm. Long time since I worked an 11 hour day!
I have one other client to squeeze into my schedule which is full before the holidays.
Got my nails (clear gel) done yesterday, had them done right before lunch, takes about an hour. Tipped her, she was very happy! I tipped the yard guy whom has taken such good care of our yard, for years!
Some how I need to get to the bank and get some cash. There are 3 people that I want to give christmas cards with cash at Sandras cafe that I eat there a lot, most days.
I will give cards to 2 cooks Sammie and Chrystal who have been there the longest(high turn over of the other staff) and then the store manager Alaina who is very pregnant and due on christmas day! It has been fun sharing pictures of my new great niece who was born on oct 21st. Her name is Emmerson Lou....they are calling her Emmy Lou.
Which is so sweet.
Life is good!
Hugs to those who need them!

Bizi- oh! Laurie Anderson- yes I like her too. Good luck today on your work day.
Pace yourself emoticon

I borrowed audio of Naked Mind but it did not hold my attention and I did not finish it. I liked Jason Vale's Kick the Drink- he does make a nod to Alan Carr who I though t was a bit too dry. haha!!!.. no pun intended!!

I moderate and what I do is socially acceptable- yet I do like Vale's energy. I also met a friend at a wedding who basically transformed himself by going AF. So- I sometimes do get the urge to just pick water/ better drinking choices JUST like I do with my food.
Esp when I hear something like this-(Dr. Klaper is 72 and just the sweetest man)
Anyway- youtube.com/watch?v=_RYP4jw0bJE

I love being able to share here.
I also think the message is pretty much the same and the delivery system/messenger works differently for different people.

Yes- I like some whisky once a year with my brother- so...I doubt I will give it up- yet for the sake of clarity I do like the idea of giving it up and caffeine as well for 100 days / possibly a year. Pondering.

I'm here at Sparks until 12/18- last weigh in day for a challenge I am in and then I am going dark until Spring. I need some cocoon time emoticon

Happy weekend all! emoticon

I did not miss drinking tonight....day 46.
The party was fun and our gifts were well received and we liked what we got. an old cd of laurie anderson readings. Jeff likes her so that was good.

Then he picked a reflex tester. LOL
The food was very good.

The chili needed some spices so I found some salt and some pico de gallo and added them to the chili, it helped a lot!

She made the best appetizers: apple with bacon wrapped around and baked.....delicious! I had 4!
Got home at 10pm.
Am tired after a long day.

Tomorrow will be a long work day.

Thanks cherie, I never finished the book.
It is friday night and we are getting ready to go to a christmas party.
They are serving green chili that is low carb, I asked!
There will be a white elephants teal the present game.
and an ugly sweater contest!
I think I will have a piece of cheese.
Jeff is out with the guys celebrating the last teaching of class today.
Can't remember if I told you of this low carb ice cream? I really like it.
But I should only have it on special occasion. It only has 4 net carbs for the pint.
It is mostly fat.
I am working tomorrow which is fine. It will be a busy day.
I saw 5 clients today which is more than I usually see.
Jeff is going to help me upload documents and turn them into pdf files.
That has to be done before I can renew my nursing license.sigh
Hope you have a nice weekend!

I just filled up my pill box for 2 weeks, luckily I had enough. Need to get refills before we leave. Also my magnesium citrate 400mg.

Made a run to the grocery store to pick up some tonic water for his gin and tonics. And for me some non alcoholic ginger beer, zevia (stevia sweetened) makes it and it is delicious. I also picked up some low carb, mint chocolate chip ice cream and ate a third of that pint which was very satisfying I might add. Jeff and I went to a christmas/choral concert with Carol tonight. She really enjoyed it! The wind ensemble play with the singers and there were some soloists. It was really good! We were seated in the center of the row and I had to excuse myself and get out of there because I coughed and was afraid that I would cough again so sat in the rear of the auditorium until the concert was over. I have a fear of getting cancer from inhaling the chemicals that I use every day for work..for the past 20 years. If I get cancer of the lungs, throat or nose it will be because of that chronic irritation, (it makes me cough if I inadvertently inhale the spray).
Christmas party in 2 days. Beef chili sounds good. I know that it is low carb because I asked. I will bring my cup again with stevia to sweeten the water. They are playing the white elephant game or steal the gift.
I just found a perfect regifting gift for the party. Cat pillow cases! LOL.
I hope you have a good day/evening for those who follow along in my journeys. 44 days AF, 11 pounds down.

Hi!

Thank you all for the compliments. The longer you go without drinking, the easier it is. I do remember the moderate times with nice memories, making new memories now. We were around drinking over thanksgiving, It went fine not drinking, I know I can't moderate.

My doc visits went ok. Laid down when I got home, Have to take it easy for a couple days.

Planning on cleaning up my diet after the holidays. Still watching it tho.

Its so pretty in our place with the xmas lighting and decorations. But it also warm and comfortable.

Its late.. Take care! I will!

Hattie jumped on my lap again tonight, It makes it difficult to type.
Should be grateful that she wants contact with me. She is Jeffs cat and will hiss at me and
occasionally she growls if she doesn't like what I am doing to her.
Unfortunately she smells.
Jeff is out with the guys listening to some student give their final concert for the semester.
blues, cajun and latin bands. It is at a bar so jeff can drink so am sure he is happy about that.
Did not want to go. It is chilly out side and I get cold easily.
I cooked up some veggies stir fry and some brussel sprouts with an orange sauce.
Ate half of that and a piece of cheese and about 1/2 cup of the low carb ice cream.
After I cleaned up I decided to put up the little christmas tree on the dining room table.
I used only miniature ornaments. Think it turned out fine. It looks pretty with the lights off.
43 days af and stuck at 10 pound weight loss....I need to be easy on myself we did just have a major holiday!
Need to start thinking about christmas presents for Jeff. I don't have any idea.
He is hard to shop for.
I am getting gift cards for my family or just cash like I did last year.
My picking is under control so that is good. My computer usage is terrible.
Did get my charting done so am happy about that.
hugs to those who need them.

Bizi- I need to clean my place!

Cherie emoticon

Holidays-I wait until later on to do anything- we have some old decorations and have gone without the treee (we don't want to buy a plastic one and don't want to cut down one) now and do what we call decorating the room.. well we do use one of my DD's big plastic cactus to hang some lights. WE just have a nice time since kids are pretty all over so it is nice when we can see each other. Simple gifts- plenty of cooking - just a kind of the end the year thing .. 4 of us are atheist one agnostic and DH is I guess spiritual-believes

Years ago used ot have a tree decorating party and tons of guests. It is nice to have peace and simplicity now.

I might be taking a spark break.. I have procrastinated about have a space to do illustration- thinking I will wait until we find and buy the house- but I should not waste that time- illustration takes a great many hours. I sometimes wish I had another drive/passion but I do love it and do want to do it as close as I can in the medical/science field - etc..soo... need to focus!

Have a wonderful day all!

Hi all!

Its been a while, having health problems. I'm getting a lubricating shot in my knee tomorrow morning and tomorrow afternoon an epidural on my back! Taking Vraylar, it really helps with the yo-yos. But it has a lot of side effects. I'll have to put up with that cause it keeps me from being hyper.

Bizi, it feels good to get a lot done!
Hunny and I decorated Sat and Sun. Hunny has good taste.
Have to accept the fact of not buying gifts this year. No $$$ I don't feel bad anymore, its the way it has to be. I do feel bad about not seeing my kids.

I'm at 427 dayAF.

I hope you all don't get stressed out over the month!!!

I've been reading my older journals, I've grown so much at my age... It helps to write.

Take care!

Cherie

I,m Cherie, Been with sparker for 3 yrs, I like that I'm losing it slowly! Its a lifestyle!

Bizi- being AF is helping as booze really makes us store those calories from food- so you are doing well with that!

I have been attempting Pilates- oh my is that hard to do! I have a different DVD called No Trouble Zones with similar move that Jillian does- I might use that instead and get to Pilates when I am a bit more in shape

My time on line is out the roof.
I just spent hours rereading my threads from last year and this year
looking for patterns. I definitely yo yo with my weight and drinking.
(I did not need to spend hours reading to know this truth).

Even though I am not drinking right now I feel I am out of control.
I had many things that I need to do this long 4 day weekend.

I still have one day left to be productive.
3 loads of laundry
transfer calendar for the new year....this will take quite a while.
Chart for the month that I am behind. This will take a while too.
I need to get to bed!
sigh


I cheated again on my diet at friends house for green gumbo.
I ate 4 pieces of corn bread. and had cherry pie with ice cream.

my favorite!
I did note that I weighed 194 on 8-5-19 my heaviest weight.
I weighed 181 this morning.
40 days AF

The most days I have done in recent history is for lent:
The season of Lent lasts from Ash Wednesday (the day after Mardi Gras) to the evening of Holy Saturday before easter. This calculation makes Lent last 46 days.

Went to whole foods tonight for dinner and trivia.
Had hamburger with out the bun with pepper jack cheese and bacon. and a side of salad.
It was very good.
I drank water the entire night.
I have to say that we were right at the bar and it was very tempting to have a beer.They have a large selection of craft beers. I resisted.
I thought about my telephone call with my friend Carol from AA.
She was very happy for me.....she wants me to call her if I am tempted to drink. I had told her that I was unsure if I will drink or not while on vacation. I really think I will drink. But I really don't want to screw up my diet....I need to really think about this.

Great EM!
We walked after dinner yesterday for a short walk for the dog to run and play fetch. My ankles bothered me.
sigh
My chiropractor said I needed to start exercising my right foot as it is getting worse instead of better. He wants me to ice it as well as he felt it was swollen. I don't think it is swollen.
I am off today and the weekend too.
Have a good weekend Yall!
