Keeping Up With KB
Everything is going well with me. I'm doing great with my 30 days to a healthier happier me challenge. I had one alcohol free night this week rather than the two I was aiming for but still managed to keep within the alcohol units, so I'm happy with that. I've noticed a few changes already, I feel I have more energy during the day, my mood is more stable and I've reduced the tablets I've been taking for acid reflux by half. That's pretty impressive stuff just after a couple of weeks. It's giving me motivation to keep going even though it's the silly season and there are so many excuses to drink more rather than less.
I went on a 30 minute walk yesterday and I'm happy to report I didn't feel any anxiety while I was out. I listened to Kat's advice and took my camera with me. I love taking pics and between trying my new Dog Whisperer techniques with Coco and juggling the camera, I didn't have time to think about anxiety. I'll be sharing more pics from my walk on Weekend Walkabout on Sunday. (I've decided to post on the weekend rather than Wednesdays as it's easier for me and I'm the boss of WW, so I can do what I like, hehe).
My next goal is to eat 5+ servings of fruit and veggies per day. I'm already pretty good at eating my veggies but I would like to be more consistent with this. I've found a few tips to share about that but my post isn't quite ready yet, I'll probably post it tomorrow.
Whitesnake is on his last week at his current job. I must say, I'm looking forward to him starting his new job. He won't have to work the long shifts he's doing at the moment and there won't be any more night shifts or early starts. Yay, it'll be much better for both us. Funny thing is, a few weeks ago I was telling Whitesnake how I was finally getting into the routine of early starts and then next thing I know, I won't have to get up early any more. Funny how often you achieve one goal and then the next step presents itself.
Before I go, I have excellent news. I often enter competitions or sign up for give aways but never win. This week I WON TWO give aways - a six month subscription to Good magazine but best of all, a poetry book from my friend, Jannie I've finally found a blonde who is crazier than me (that's high praise), she announced the winners of her competition FROM A TREE. Thanks so much sweetie, you made my day.
That's all folks,
