Creek and Back

Untitled by cavern1996 at Garmin Connect - Details

Not much to say, did 5 yesterday and almost 3 today.  Been feeling lousy due to allergies.  Jacob and I went to see Linkin Park a couple days ago and didn't get in till midnight.  Not much sleep that night then ran the 5 yesterday.  Popped some PM pills last night at 11 and woke up beat tired.  Feeling cruddy all day.  Hopefully it'll go away.  Still not drinking and it'll be two weeks tomorrow.  Still no cravings.  I'm hoping to have close to 20 miles this week.  As far as weight, I'm down to 211.  7 pound loss since vacation weight but still a pound up from when I started to lose weight months ago.  Hopefully it's coming off.

5 Miler by cavern1996 at Garmin Connect - Details

5 Miler by cavern1996 at Garmin Connect - Details

Well it was a productive week at work.  As of today I haven't had a drink in 8 days.  That includes this past Thursday at the Rangers game.  It still is pretty easy not to think about it or even want it.  I'm still waiting on the sober's high I've heard about where life is so much better without.  As of today I haven't lost any weight and certainly don't wake up in the morning thinking how happy I am.  However, it's been a short while and unfortunately I've had a head cold or allergies for the past several days.  However, I'm in no need to go back to a life of hangovers and hoping folks at work don't notice.  That part of me is over and that is refreshing.  To know I can go home after a Rangers game, speed and knowing the worst they can do is get me a speeding ticket.  That...is stress free living in my book....perhaps thats part of the high I haven't realized....till now.

Has it really been 6 months

Good Morning by cavern1996 at Garmin Connect - Details

well lots have changed since my last blog.  I did do one more half, Dallas Rock n Roll, with Lindsey, Tim and a few others from work.  Since then I've been working and for the last two weeks I've been on vacation.  This week we had both the kids birthdays.  Katelyn did Medieval Times and Jacob and his friends went to the Rough Riders game.  I also stopped drinking on Jacob's birthday.  Just had enough of the poison in my system.  I am reading a book that I really think helps, "The Easy way to Stop Drinking".  Very positive for me.  So I've officially gone two full days and can't say today, day 3, I'm looking forward to even smelling the stuff.  God help me get through this.  I can say I have a wonderful family that's behind me all the way.  I talked to Jacob about it yesterday and he was proud and wished me luck.  So..it's time to start running.
