    My usual goal, 16-20 AF days per month.

    My schedule pretty much dictates my AF days.
    I will be AF on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays for the next few months.

    Diary style is how I keep track


    Sunday Jan 23rd - AF - Skating in the morning before work : - )
    Monday Jan 24th - AF - I have a very light day tomorrow, so considered having a drink, but my tummy will be much leaner in the morning if I don't. Counted my "lunges" while skating. 70 per minute and I skated for 60 minutes. 4200 lunges?
    Tuesday Jan 25th - AF - Skating tomorrow, and I am having a very busy work week, so AF. I might have drinks tomorrow.
    Wednesday Jan 26th - 2 drinks. I always had 3 drinks on drinks days, but now 2 is my sweet spot. Planned drinks for Friday and Saturday with a friend who is moving far away.
    Thursday Jan 27 - AF - Happily hit my 16. No plans to be AF over the next couple of days. Planning AF for Sunday.
    Friday Jan 28 - Drinks with my bestie who is about to be moving far away soon. I was crying before the Prosecco, and probably crying harder after. Getting together with her Saturday as well, and we will be having drinks again.

    Rolling total: 16AF days out of 28 days.

    OMG I am so worried about all you on the East Coast!.....I get freaked out with dense fog warning along with stagnant air warning blah blah.

    Dry snow is much better but still.....guess if we move that way we better plan on a generator?

    Posting for accountability. 34 of the last 36 days have been AF.

    12/25 - 12/31 AF
    1/1 - 1/26 AF
    1/27 - 2 drinks
    1/28 - 1/29 AF

    Thank you to everyone for sharing your thoughts and suggestions regarding breaking my 33 day AF streak. I appreciate it and hope to learn from it.

    Thinking of all of you on the East Coast dealing with the bomb cyclone. I just spent a week back in South Dakota and the bitter cold was bad enough. I can't imagine all of that snow on top of it. Back to my happy place just a few miles from @GlobalHiker now.

    Have a happy Sunday.

    @dawnbgethealthy I am sorry your friend is moving because I know what it's like when best friends move. I have a couple of best friends in different countries and thank goodness for technology like Zoom and Skype and all that.

    The weather in AZ has been absolutely divine and the winds calmed down and we enjoyed the sun and 69 degrees with cerulean blue skies (yes a good air day finally) and it was a very nice weekend. If you all can get out of the cold, come on down.

    I did not hit my January goal, missed the mark by a couple of days. But thank goodness we have February to look forward to and it will be a short and easy month - a good one to hit all the goal marks.

    @MissMay - That is a lot of SNOW! Thank you for sharing. Stay safe and warm!

    @dawnbgethealthy - Sorry that your friend is moving away. Hope that ya'll will find a way to keep in touch.
    My best friend from college moved to Colorado then Detroit ... while we moved to St. Louis MO and then Houston. She finally caught up with us here in Houston though on the opposite side ... and we've been able to raise our kids within an hour of each other which has been wonderful. One of her other best friends from HS just moved & retired from Houston to France. They Zoom/Skype at least once per month.

    @lmlmrn - Great close up.

    This month has been good for drinking less and enjoying it more.
    17 AF days this month! On days where I had wine, I had less...just 1-3 glasses.

    @dawnbgethealthy how sad your bff is moving. With today's technology at least you can be close from a far. Hugs

    @globalhiker so is this time of year the nicest weather in AZ? Your right there is always a new month to achieve goals.

    @lmlmrn great photo. That guy really blends into those background colors. Our wild life has become increasingly docile to. Our Steller Sea Eagle has been MIA lately. To many tourists trying to get a pic I think he got annoyed.

    @GiveHerGrace and @tmbg1what wonderful accountability you both have had for January!

    @lilylady you must be busy with your new Grandbaby. It was good to see you pop in.


    LAST DAY OF JANUARY 2022
    post the good or bad of your experience, it is all part of the process. 🤓
