7 Years!

Life has been very busy lately, and I honestly haven’t written in a long time. I forgot how much I missed it. I just wanted to take a moment to let you all know that this past Saturday I celebrated 7 years sober! Holy crap, right?!? 🤪 I felt this was the perfect opportunity to... Continue Reading →

Body Image

Today was the start of my new and improved health and fitness journey. Yep - here I go again. 😞 I am no longer calling it a diet, screw that - I’m calling it a “do-it-dammit!” 🤪 I have not been happy with my body for a VERY long time, and if I’m being perfectly... Continue Reading →

Happy Holidays! ♥️

Some days I care more than others, but I still fear judgment. I am human, after all. Since I’ve started sharing... Continue Reading →

Busy Brain

It’s getting busy in my brain again. I feel a storm coming on, but instead of hail it’s raining ping pong balls inside my head. This might sound ridiculous at first, but can you even imagine? My thoughts, my worries, they bounce around in there for days - ping...ping...ping - It’s a constant barrage of... Continue Reading →

I Believe in Miracles

Some days, I am just grateful I made it through. I can experience a range of emotions throughout the day - any one of which could be used as an excuse to drink - and yet somehow I choose not to. It’s a miracle, really. In early recovery, people would tell me that I was... Continue Reading →

An Inside Job

One of the most important things I've learned in recovery thus far: Throughout my life I have always been reaching for things outside of myself - hoping I would find something that would make me happy. If I could just get that job, the husband, the house, the cars, be prettier, be thinner...THEN I would... Continue Reading →
