Day 11 - Fully Present and Alive!

Day 11 on my alcohol free journey. My kids are in pre-school, where the class starts at 8:15. We are notoriously late - most times getting there by 8:30 but sometimes well after.

Last year was even worse - many days we'd struggle to get there by 9 a.m. And I always opted to buy the kids' lunches at school.

If I'm honest, the reason why we are late is because of me. I obviously set the tone for the day and sometimes we don't even wake up until after 7. Then we rush to have breakfast and scoot out the door. And it's because of the wine, right? I know it is.

If I drink even a glass or two of wine, I don't sleep well, I don't prepare, I don't plan for the day ahead. I just get lazy - and that is sad to me.

This last week and a half we have been bringing our A game! I have been making lunches for the kiddos and we have been rocking and rolling on getting out the door on time.

This morning, we had to be there extra early because the kids' class hosted a program where they sang and danced. We made it on time with plenty of room to spare! I laid out their clothes last night and made them lunch this morning and it was a breeze.

Afterwards, I had a great workout and finished up a few things for work.

It's no secret my productivity has been sky high and I'm grateful for this....Day 11 has been strong and full of positivity! The next milestone will be Day 14 where I celebrate two weeks of being alcohol free on this 100-day journey.

Is anyone else out there on an alcohol free journey? I haven't really told a lot of people yet. I feel I want more days under my belt to be confident.
