Day 31 AF for me begins.
I'm down five pounds and have been faithful about going to the gym. I'm finding that keeping my commitment to be AF in January has made me better at keeping other commitments to myself (like going to gym, or staying on the treadmill X number of minutes or stopping with the SUGAR ALREADY!). I am worried about sustaining it all, though, because I've fallen off the food and drink wagon many times before. Last summer was a disaster on both accounts. I have WL goals for the next few months and feel pretty committed right now, though. Pondering my drinking goal now.
Hope everybody's doing well and would love to know what your plans are going forward.

@Lilylady3k - congrats on your success! Looks like we're on same path. After last year's DJ I did four AF days per week. I like the idea of stretching that a bit. I guess if I were gonna do that I'd add Sunday, so I'd be AF Sun-Thurs. Still pondering. Right now, I'm just excited about having a glass or two of wine tomorrow. We're going to a nice place for dinner on Sat. night too, so prob more wine. I guess right now my plan is to just not get crazy this weekend!

January accountability ~31 days so far
No Alcohol: 19 days
Alcohol: 12 days (27 drinks)
Goal: AF days 4 per week / 16 per month
To view the weekly count toward 4 ... AF Mon Dec 31!
Jan 1 - AF
Jan 2 - Dinner out with hubby after challenging day at work transitioning my role. Looks like it will take weeks to ramp them up. Didn't leave chair for 9 hrs. (excuses) - limited myself to 1 glass of wine
Jan 3 - Bunco - limit 1 glass wine. Slipped up and had 2-3 (I call it 12 oz 3 if light pour / 2 if heavy pour) What happen to my resolve to drink water after 1 glass?
Jan 4 - Traveling with my mom & sister 7 hrs today for a funeral Saturday. Plans to limit to 1 glass of wine was blown. I lacked the willpower which I need to work on. 1 margarita at mexican restaurant, 1 glass of wine in hotel suite everyone gathered at after dinner.
Jan 5 - AF Driving 7 hours return trip
Jan 6 - AF
*This past week Monday thru Sunday I hit my 4 days of AF by reigning it in Sat and Sun! No social challenges next week. It will be just me and my own willpower to bank AF days for the month to offset challenging weeks ahead.
Jan 7 - AF
Jan 8 - AF
Jan 9 - AF
Jan 10 - AF - Driving 6 hours this evening
*Last 3 nights I skipped the beer and bourbon & did not join DH in drinking. Patting myself on the back for the resolve to stick to 4 nights AF this week M-Th. Planning for wine with dinner Fri & Sat but I'm feeling so much more in control these days with this resolve.
Jan 11 - 4 glasses (2 red, 2 white) Opened 2 bottles of wine with DH should have limited myself to 1 glass from each; almost doubled my number of drinks for the month in one night sitting outside with neighbors looking out over the water and grilling steaks.
Jan 12 - Used 3/4 cup of the 1 bottle of white for cooking the Risotto. 2 smaller glasses. Success in that everyone else had 1 drink before I started pouring wine for myself and DH with dinner.
Jan 13 - AF - proud that I did not just join the crowd this evening
*5 AF days this week!
Jan 14 - AF - ding ding ding DH & I had steak without red wine!

Jan 19 - AF - Party, friend’s fully stocked tiki bar, drank 2 bottles of water instead of everything offered. Designated driver 50+ miles from home though DH did not drink but 1.
Jan 20 - AF, company w/ steak & roasted veggies dinner for all, Saints game … no alcohol for 6 of us … my sister brought orange cosmos but she was the only one that drank it.
Beat my goal ... 5 AF days this week!
This week I have three scheduled challenges with a plan to limit my consumption. The other 4 days I need to stick to my AF plan. Slipped 1 day this week. Goal is to hold to the rest of the plan! I just need one more day to meet my 16 AF goal for the month! I can do this!
Jan 21 - Bookclub - limit 1 glass wine; finally lived up to my plan to not have a second glass in a social situation!
