Lifestyle180: Day 1.

Lifestyle180 is me picking up where I failed with the Healing Through Writing narrative. I gave up on that as I felt writing about it, coupled with the let down of a break up, added alot of pressure to something that seemed insurmountable on it’s own. But it’s not. It’s as easy as flipping a switch and not focusing on what I am leaving but embracing what I’m running towards.

It’s 4pm and I feel great about this change. I’m off to the gym now then I’m whipping up some mushroom burgers on the barbie. Later this evening I will have a gigantic snack during the time I normally drink and then I will be good for the night. That, or hit up the cinema.

Sidenote: Absolutely destroying arms in the gym. Besides parenting, focus for the gym is the one thing I haven’t lost or has been taken from me. I look forward to even longer, heavier workouts without the daily hangovers. I also look forward to my bloated gut shrinking and man boobs dissipating, if you get what I’m saying.

Its 8pm and feeling strong. Going for a walk with my girls before relaxing a bit before bed, sober. I have my mind fully engaged in where I want to go, and leave what’s been my comfort and my home. So much time has been wasted, I’m so over it. The time has come to cross this divide! And with God on my side.

It’s almost 9pm and I have arrived. I have beaten the drink tonight. About to grab some Subway so I can eat fresh and watch at least a bit of Unsane, a movie I’ve been wanting to see for months (shot entirely on an iphone!). Day 2 tomorrow. That is all.
