Well done BI!
Day 24 dawns with another birthday party to go to but as I will be driving = no temptation.
Only 7 days to go.
My running consistency and weight loss have really improved this month!
Me too Kev...9 lbs off now...
Well done GFB!
Off for a 6 mile hike now around the local reservoir.
Glad the weather is dry for a change.
Last weekend nearly over.
Yesterday's 6 miler turned in to a nice 9 miler, so pleased with that effort.
Awful weather here in West Wales at the moment - glad I went yesterday.
Hope everyone is doing well - 5 days to go!
Weather pretty grim here also Kev. This mornings 7 miler was a struggle to be honest knee started giving me grief after about 3 miles and got progressively worse. Added to the driving wind and rain it was not much fun. Still, at least. I had a clear head! Always look on the bright side etc.......
Evening. Weather is so grim it's driven me to join the gym! First visit tomorrow.
on the home run now!
Did 18 in the rain yesterday, thoroughly miserable! Roast beef for dinner and I nearly cracked. Will get Thames trot done Saturday then me and OH will be out for dinner and wine!
January nearly done. Feb next then
I've had the sort of day that should have sent me hunting for the corkscrew and a bottle of red. Instead I opted for the comfort of chip shop fish and chips. A sort of fail for me cos I'm supposed to be low carbing , however, it was the lesser of two evils.
I had (and am) considering a 100 day challenge, cos that should get me back to a decent weight and fitness. I'm going to a wedding in less than two weeks though. My brothers will be there and they do like to sink a few, I'm considering taking the day off for that day and hopping back on the next day. We shall see. When I've been dry before when training for something specific, I take great delight in being entertained by the drinkers around me, you spot things that bypass you when you are 'in your cups' yourself. I'll wait and see how I am on the day I think.
Well done to all those who are sticking it out. As for those who have slipped, well, it's not the end of the world and you can always start again anytime
Think a one off fish and chips is ok - I hope so as I had that Friday! Sadly I haven't lost much weight, some great results by everyone here.I shall hop off the wagon Saturday and then on Sunday to next race 9th March. Luckily Feb is a short month and I will spend 2 weeks offshore anyway!
I am definately going for 100 days. Empty calories that serve no purpose - I hope I actually do it
Day 28 - so far so good.The biggest change I have noticed is that I'm sleeping much MUCH better - deeper sleeping and no getting up in the middle of the night. To be honest, despite previously liking a 'good' drink I don't really miss it..... that being said my goal is to stay dry until after VLM.Keep up the good work guys
Well done everyone!! i honestly didn't think I could go the whole month (best Jan effort before being 2 weeks) - and although I have no plans to give up for good (or even q00 days...respect to you guys!!) I do feel my whole attitude has changed (I didn't even miss it on Sunday) time will tell - we're off on a business trip next weekend which usually involved a lot of wining and dining...
Well done everyone - some great stories.
The finishing line is in sight.
Reviewing my month. I've been to:
And haven't really missed drinking.
I'm also sleeping better and have lost weight.
So I'm determined not to go back to drinking on the weekends 'out of habit' - I've proved above that I don't NEED do it and seen the benefits of NOT doing it.
We're going to friends for drinks and dinner on Feb 8th so I'll have a drink then and other 'special' occasions.
Good plan RK. the only time I have really struggled this month was on Sunday, after 3 weeks off! Think it was just because everyone else decided it was beer or wine time and for a few minutes I really minded not having one. However, it didn't last and I was mightily relieved to have withstood the temptation!
33 days for me so far and am not sure I'm in a hurry to start again. I'm sleeping like a log and feeling great!
Well done all.
Day 31 is upon us! Well done all who have stuck with it.
Well done everyone!! (I didn't think I'd do it...I lasted two weeks last year and moaned every day... )
I'm "allowing" myself a glass when I want it now...let's see how that goes...
Weighed in this morning...another 3lbs off this week...that's 12 in total...
Well done everyone! We managed it - have to say, it was a lot easier than last year.
I have decided to do 100 days so tomorrow will be 30% of the way through
Great weight loss GFB!
No BI, it wasn't too bad was it.
Another weekend off for me and look forward to a few drinks at our friends next weekend.
