Note the change in title… that’s because yesterday (June 10th and my 10th day) – I ended up having a few drinks. I didn’t have an huge internal battle about it either. I just said I wanted some and had some. I really reflected on my feelings as I had my drinks – it was different. I felt a difference inside – I can’t quite explain it, but it wasn’t like before. When I used to cave in, I would go all out and think ‘well I caved now so I may as well make it worthwhile’. Not the case this time. I had a few drinks. Moderately. And today, my plan is to remain AF as I attend my staff social / BBQ. It might be tough since I had drinks yesterday and people around me will be drinking but I want to prove to myself that I can change my habits and be ‘better’.
I’m not giving up on truly making this a month to RESET my habits. I reviewed my calendar and here’s the track record for 2015 so far with my habits…
JANUARY- 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 11, 19, 26 (10 days AF)
FEBRUARY – 2 (1 day AF)
MARCH – 10, 11, 22, 30, 31 (5 days AF)
APRIL – 17 (1 day AF)
MAY – 11, 12, 19 (3 days AF)
Before my JUNE reset – for the entire year so far I’ve only had 20 days AF. WOW – what an eye opener and the reason for me having to really get serious about changing my habits – no wonder I can’t lose the weight.
So for June here are the AF stats – so far…
JUNE – 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 – my longest in a row streak this year.
So here’s to a new day! And it’s my FAVOURITE day 11 – my lucky number – one that reminds me I’m never alone…
