    Anybody else always try to start off new health habits on a Monday or 1st of the month? That's me. Good news, this Monday is the 1st. No excuses. :smiley: As previously posted the other day, the 1st starts a no sugar challenge for me and glad that there are other people to join with other challenges. Please let's keep in touch so we can help each other stay motivated.
    Don't let April slip by. Let's make it the best month yet!!!

    Goals for March
    Mostly Dry (no more than 4 days)
    Possible Exceptions
    First week is a killer
    3/4 - Dinner Out
    3/5 - Dinner Out (may not go)
    3/8 - Fashion Show
    TBD
    Goal AF = 27+

    Current Streak - AF = 0
    Longest Streak 2024 - AF = 16

    I'm kinda throwing in the towel for March and getting my head right for April. Good news, I'm still doing better than last year.

    My husband introduced some new drinks. I'm not blaming him as I can say no...but I didn't. And it's so easy to return to that daily wine pour.

    @dmally1 ~ Sorry for your loss.

    Congrats to all who are still showing up. Even with a few misses, just showing up proves you are mindful and will get to where you want to be.

    @forestdweller1 ~ yes, your daughter is correct. Just delete, don't click, don't call, don't respond. You may also get an email with an "invoice" attached...ditto...just ignore/delete.

    A/W = 26
    AF = 5

    Went out for a nice early dinner with friends. Had one cocktail (Manhattan straight up-- delicious!). Went to a show and to bed much later. Still had difficulty sleeping!

    Can it be that limiting alcohol lowers tolerance that much?

    Went for Mexican last night with hubby and his friend. Kept wanting to order a drink, but didn’t because nobody else did. Probably not the best decision-making style as it’s basically “following the herd”, but it worked last night in my favor. So, I’ll score it a win for the book! 🙂

    @ericanahnahnah I used to do that a lot too. Now, I have 2 of the 4 out of the house. Reset and get back on track.❤️

    A win is a win no matter how you got there!! Good for you.

    Per the Latin Rite of the Catholic Church, DH and I are attempting the Paschal Fast, fasting all of Good Friday through the Saturday Easter Vigil which will end about 11:00pm Saturday. So, if there is no food, there is definitely no alcohol.

    @MissMay thank you for starting the April post. I will be back! 🙂 This post and great group of people made my attempts to lower my alcohol consumption an attainable goal. It’s nice to know I am not alone in the struggle.

    I am really dreading Monday morning. Not because of the challenge, but because of taking before photos. I am so ashamed of where I am, but I think taking a photo before, during, and after will keep me motivated.
