Happy Friday! Here's to growing and going to places people never thought you'd go!! Growth happens outside of your comfort zone! #LoseDaBooze #Growth #SobrietyEven our bunny weighs in lol :-)Day 1 of my newest round of one of my favorite programs #21DayFix. 7 Weeks post-surgery and getting back to my regular exercise was something I wanted and missed. It was a tough workout with the extra weight back on but I made it through! Never Miss a Monday Workout!! #Healthy4LifewithHeleneIf you had a bad day yesterday - don't let it up your today!
Everyday is a fresh opportunity for success! #Healthy4LifewithHelene #LoseDaBoozeIt's my birthday tomorrow (Sept 3) and I pray for the positives to shine through as this outlines. Learning of a possible job shift has opened the door to doubt - but I won't let fear win. Instead - looking at the possibilities!Hit my 10,000 steps to finish the day last night. Aiming for another today!My lovely Sunflowers!Seize the Day #Healthy4LifewithHeleneStepped it up today! Hectic day! Daughter in emerg - has been in crisis since Sunday with visits to walk in clinic, calls to mobile crisis and then our family doctor - hoping she gets a crisis bed tomorrow for 3 to 5 days to stabilize. It's been a long hard road (she's BPD and has suffered with this since 2013).
Walking/exercise keeps me sane! Going strong with #SoberSeptember (and beyond) as I choose to #LoseDaBooze for the rest of this year! Feeling awesome being back to my sober way of living after allowing 59 days with drinks since May of this year. Finishing the calendar year with 306 Days AF compared to a few years ago when I only had 65 Days AF in a year! Now that's PROGRESS!Getting ready for Walktober! Are you?Just ONE week and look at the difference! Not a huge weight loss but it goes to show you that the scale does not tell all! #NSV #Healthy4LifewithHeleneFollowing #SoberSeptember with this Happy First Day of Fall!
