Yesterday I decided to start a sober challenge. Last month a friend of mine inspired me with her 100 days alcohol free commitment. I dragged my feet a bit but have been thinking about it ever since.
Another friend convinced me to wait until after Super Bowl Sunday, haha. Her team made it in and she was throwing a party to watch the game at her house.
Then I waited one extra day just because.
But there’s no time like the present! So yesterday was day 1. Why wait for the beginning of a week, or a month or a year? Start whenever you are inspired.
Along with being alcohol-free, I am going to stick to the diet that my GI doctor and dietitian have recommended for me. The Low Fodmap diet plus no coffee, chocolate or fried foods. I originally wrote about this here.
I know I feel 1000x better when I stick to eating the foods I am supposed to eat, and avoid the foods that trigger my symptoms. It is just so hard over the holidays, and then we had planned other outings that involved drinking, and had family birthday parties that involved dinners that I had no control over. But all of those sounds like excuses now.
I am done with excuses. I can’t wait to see how great I feel when I am at 100 days.
