two weeks down!

Okay, okay, it might not seem like a lot of time, and, I’ve been here before so I don’t want to get overly excited, but, it’s been two weeks without a drink, people! And that is something to celebrate for me. I feel happy because I feel like what I’m doing is working. I don’t feel like i’ve been “white knuckling” the last two weeks. Well, maybe a few times. But for the most part, I’ve been using tools that I’ve learned from research, Belle, and you fine folks here in the sobersphere. I am so grateful to everyone that writes sober blogs. Even if I haven’t connected with you yet, know that I am reading everyday and it helps me so much. And to those that I have connected with through comments- a huge thank you.. Your support means the world to me. 

And, to top off a great two weeks- I just learned how to hyperlink! Look- see Belle’s name in blue above. It’s official- I’ve broken my hyperlink hymen. It’s go time.

I’m also going to try another new thing today. I’m a little bit scared but I’m excited too. I’m heading to my first Zumba class pretty soon.I really need to get active and fit. I’ve been sitting on my ass for the last few years while I worked in an officey-type job and studied for my master’s degree. I’m really out of shape and I want this to change. I do some yoga but I need more. I’ve ran on and off but I think that I need some kind of a class that will help motivate me. My sister-in-law does zumba and she swears by it. She says it’s so much fun. That’s exactly what I need- a workout that is challenging and FUN. 

So this will be me in about an hour (part Zumba, part happy dance for two weeks sober!)-

    • Hi Primrose! Zumba was really fun. I am not the most coordinated person in the universe but I did learn a little salsa back in the day… it was a very good workout and I loved the moves once I could figure them out 🙂 Hopefully with each class it will get a bit easier! Hope you’re having a great weekend.

  1. I just laughed so much at hyperlink hymen! Now there’s a phrase I’ve never heard before! Well done you 🙂 two weeks is awesome, and in my view, the hardest bit!

    • Yeah, I’m not sure where that one came from! lol. I think I was just pretty proud of myself for figuring it out- I tend to shut down when it comes to most technical things. Im’ looking forward to gaining more sober time. Still haven’t tackled sober socializing this round but I’ve done it before and know it can be done. I just need a bit more time this time.
