Day 23 – What else could I do for 30 days?

Today was good.  I feel good.  I like how a real sense of confidence is replacing my often times bravado-like confidence.  I like that I think about myself and smile rather than not being able to think about myself because I’m disappointed.   I even like that the little things like mild acid-reflux, irritability, and pressing the snooze button one too many times in the morning are just because of me being me and not because of alcohol.

Today I wondered what else I could do for 30 days.  Not drinking alcohol has been one of the first times that I have really stuck to something and not cheated a bit.  There is a documentary series by Morgan Spurlock and it’s called 30 Days.  He immerses himself in something for, duh, 30 days and then documents that experience.  There is also a public radio show I like and it periodically profiles this guy who tried every religion for 30 days and wrote a book about it.
It’s got me thinking…what if I changed my life 30 days at a time?

  1. what would you change if you could do it 30 days at a time, what a great question 🙂 i’d like to do 30 days without refined sugar (which includes mayonnaise, store bought crackers, tonic water, etc.). i’ve done a few days at a time, but never more than 6 (my magic speedbump is right around 6 days for most things). i’d like to exercise 5 days a week for 30 days straight. i’d like to be in bed by 11 pm and get 8.5 hrs sleep. i’d like to have a very clean and decluttered house that is serene and calming. i’d like to read a book a week. i’d like to lose 1-2 pounds a week … i’d like an empty inbox. i’d like to try one new recipe a day for 30 days … let’s go 🙂 I’m ready to join you. in addition to being sober for september, what else are you going to do?

  2. “… and pressing the snooze button one too many times in the morning are just because of me being me and not because of alcohol.” – Isn’t this the truth!

  3. “I like that I think about myself and smile rather than not being able to think about myself because I’m disappointed”
    Isn’t this just the BEST THING about not drinking?

  4. “It’s got me thinking…what if I changed my life 30 days at a time?”….oh, this has my mind going 90 miles a minute!!!! I’ve got to write that down!

  5. “I even like that the little things like mild acid-reflux, irritability, and pressing the snooze button one too many times in the morning are just because of me being me and not because of alcohol.” ME TOO!

    Around one month in, I started going to pilates regularly. Made me feel EVEN better.
