wrong blog

I just posted on my old blog, so, anyone who reads it will might be confused.

My titles are so boring but I am just amazed at those of you who come up with a title, that matches your blog, and everything comes together in the end. amazing. 

I was reset yesterday, I wish I could open up and just write like so many of you do. Maybe in time I’ll get better. sober tonight.  I was noticing toward the end of my almost two weeks sober that my sleep was getting a little bit better. I was waking up constantly my first couple of weeks here and move into the livingroom to sleep by the open large windows. That kind of helped. then last thursday I slept thru the night and woke up at 5:30. that was really nice. I’ve also realized I had stopped taking my iron sup which I need to take on a regular basis. (I rarely eat red meat). and was dragging on top of everything else. I’ve already noticed a difference. still way say being here and to top it off something really weird happened at work today. I had a bad ‘gut’ reaction to  all of it. 

ran up the mountain after work. it’s not that far but tis steep.

blog

so, somehow i keep signing out of my account here. I don’t remember signing out but each time i go to post i need to re-sign in…which…is….exhausting since i have other accounts for work, school, personal. This account is private. 

right now i’m enjoying my tea in the evenings,…kave with a little skim milk. I think the ‘drinking’ also revolves around ritual…and the tea has been my new ritual…….it’s good.

The blog thing is just not for me…the writing part. I wish i could write like so many of you write, share etc but i’m still plagued by  insecurities of someone i know reading it and figuring out who i am. I will continue to read along and blog privately …so i can continue writing and trying to figure things out.

9

nine days today. i didn’t even realize it until tonight when i was making a small endive salad. I also made a dressing of tuscan olive oil, balsamic, oregano, black pepper, a little horseradish mustard, salt and a little garlic. perfect although if i had some olives it would have been perfect. I had a sandwich earlier in the day so light dinner.

WAY better then ingesting 600-1000 calories of alcohol and any food substance that might accompany it. crazy. my poor body. 

kava tea now. i slept great last night. went to bed at 10 and i think i was asleep by 10:02. I did not wake up until 5:07 a.m. (at least i do not remember waking up). The cats were thrilled i was up so early since i’m the one with the opposable thumbs……

i went to the gym and just ran and biked some, some weights and was back by 7, shower, freelance then off to school for the day which also includes work.

9.

so far. I find myself not that interested in counting tho.

Kava

kava tea is my new evening ‘drink’ or just another kind of caffeine free tea. I”m getting ready to brew a cup then head to bed to read. i did not travel this weekend to do thesis work. the studio has become a stale place for me and being out in the mountains, snow, etc makes more sense for my work. I’ve been gone the past 5 weekends, either staying with friends or staying at a hotel. I have many friends i can stay with but most times i just want to stay somewhere alone and have my own schedule. unfortunately this has also involved drinking, either staying with friends or just staying on my own. nothing earth shattering, no hangovers, etc but still, everyone i would stay with drinks. Some drink moderately and some heavier so, i need to stay focused on me, my work and making sure i’m running, caring for my lovely cats etc.

off to brew tea.

be well

no title

i made it thru a friday night last night with just tea. It was touch and go for about 30 minutes and then before i knew it i was almost home. i’ve bee tired  all week but sleeping very well without drinking, even one drink always seemed to interrupt my sleep. I had an event to attend tonight but decided not to go as there will be LOTS of alcohol. I was at a museum event last night and was offered two free drink tickets but declined. I enjoyed the lecture very much, looked at the work afterwards then skeedadeled. (left). 

reading tonight and i bought kava tea and milk to have later. I love kave tea with milk in the winter.

be well
