Ok. Before we can discuss anything else, I must make an announcement that is very near and dear to me: THE SAN DIEGO PANDA HAD A PANDA BABY!!!
We all know that panda babies are my favoritist thing ever. I can’t wait to see the panda when it no longer looks like a rat. I might need to save up some $$$ and go see the panda baby / run San Diego. If you recall, I did just that in 2007 and it was one of the best decisions I made. Plus, I fell in love with San Diego. (If I could afford to live there, I’d be there right now.)
Now, onto other exciting things. As we know, I’ve been attempting to curb my drinking. I seem to be falling into a pattern. No wine for 2-3 days then drink for a night. In all honesty, I’m happy with the fact that I’ve been able to reduce, but I would like to see myself cut back even more.
For August, I’m shooting for 31 days of no alcohol. Gulp! I can’t believe I put that out there.
It’s going to be hard work, but I think I’m up to the task now. I’ve proven to myself that I don’t NEED to drink every night. I WANT to drink every night. That is a big distinction. Drinking has become a bad habit for me. I don’t think I particularly drink alcoholically, but the potential is definitely there. Also, once I start I can’t always stop.
When I’m not drinking, everything else just kind of falls in place. I run/workout more, eat better, my house is cleaner, I save tons of money. (Drinking is expensive!) Also, I want to take off some weight this month. The scale is not moving. Being this fat takes drastic measures.
The full August Challenge is this:
No booze for the month.
Run 4 times a week.
Blog more. (I’m not sure what “more” is. Three times a week or so?)
That’s it. It seems so simple when you look at it, but I know it’s not and I’ve got my work cut out for me. But, it’s time to build some new habits and get things back on track.
Do you have any goals for August?
