I am going to try my best this Thanksgiving holiday to truly, truly be thankful for the amazing gifts I have been given.

One of those gifts include my body. And if I am thankful for it, genuinely, I won't over-do it on Thanksgiving. I am going to track my food, go on a long walk with Chris in the Root Glen as is our tradition, and feel good about myself that day and all the rest of the days.

Being thankful for something, to me, means that you don't take it for granted.

Chris and Koda went on a super long hike in the High Peaks on Sunday. I couldn't go because I had a bridal shower to attend (which had a small amount of pretty healthy food options, I liked my choices!). I did drink mimosas... a lot, though. I feel like I am turning into a bit of a lush. I had at least one drink every night last week.

Today starts my prohibition on drinking for a while!

I was starting to rely on the alcohol to lift my spirits and bring me somewhere else... I am well aware that I am still grieving and more than a little depressed, but I think if I stop turning to alcohol to soothe those problems, I will be able to deal with them a little better.

Going to jump on my rowing machine after work today :D

Chris is out in Utica for work, and his parents live very close to there, so he is just going to stay out there for the week (even though we have Thur/Fri off) and I am going to join him on Wednesday. Koda is going to be boarded for three days... I am nervous/excited to see how it goes! If it goes well, it opens up a lot of doors for us for potentially getting out of the house for a weekend without the dog.

I've been a bad blogger this weekend. A little too much social time and drink will do that to a girl. Blogging keeps me super honest and super focused. I love reading inspirational blogs. Got to do that today and the rest of the week to keep me on track!

Peace and love, my friends.


  1. Most dogs do pretty well when boarded so I'm sure it'll be fine. :)

  2. You've picked a very ambitious point in the year to cut out drinking, but I see no reason on Earth you won't be successful at it. :) You like a challenge, right? ;)
