Day 12 today and still feeling tired. I keep getting told that it will take a while for this tiredness to go away, but I'm becoming impatient! I wonder how much of my tiredness is to do with my low iron levels and how much of it is related to giving up alcohol. Who knows, I just hope I feel better soon.
Tomorrow little guy and I are going to the movies with our friends, then we are having dinner together. I'm not worried as I have been out to dinner a lot whilst not drinking, but my friend C likes a drink so will be interesting to see what she says when she sees me not drinking. I haven't told anyone that I'm doing the 100 day challenge. I'm not sure why, it's just a personal thing I guess. I will have to say something eventually but for now, I think I will just say I'm having a break because I want to lose weight, which is true in a way. I DO want to lose weight, desperately! In fact, it's so frustrating that I haven't lost any weight yet. Maybe it's too soon? Anyway, C has been cutting down on alcohol lately and not drinking during the week (or so she says) because she is on a health kick, so I'm sure she won't think too much of me not drinking. I'll let you know how it goes.
One of the things I really hated when I was drinking was that I had zero motivation to do anything. Our house needs a major decluttering but I just never had the energy to do anything. So of course it is hard to keep tidy which meant I never invited people over because I was too embarrassed. Now that I'm not drinking I really want to get stuck into it, but I still don't have the energy! It's just so frustrating!! I want to have a lovely home that I am not embarrassed about. I want to be able to have people over at a moments notice without having to worry that the house is a mess. So that's my new goal. To get stuck into some decluttering and organising our home. It looks lovely when it's tidy, it's just that we have so much STUFF! It doesn't help that hubby is a bit of a hoarder and doesn't like to get rid of anything. Maybe if I do it on the sly he won't notice?!
When I was drinking a bottle of wine a night, hubby would often drink just as much as me. But now that I'm not drinking, he doesn't drink wine at all. But he will have beer. Usually just one or two of an evening and that's it. I've never been a beer drinker, but I'm certain that if I did drink it I wouldn't be able to stop at one or two! I guess that makes him a 'normie'. It's funny though, I don't mind him drinking, it doesn't make me want one at all. I do sometimes wish that I was a normie, but it's no use wasting energy on something that isn't going to happen.
Anyway, I'd better go and get organised. I am determined to start operation declutter TODAY and I'm not going to put it off any longer!!
