As a Drinker, I gain weight, procrastinate, forget, and waste money. Oh, there’s a lot of other bad habits I probably could name, -that I would and could beat myself up about…but these four seemed to make up a little rhyme in my mind. (And I don’t want to focus on negative anymore…I’m trying to be bright and positive)
I am a relatively healthy person. I’m in my early 50s, I am within 10 pounds of my optimal weight, I can walk miles and miles with ease, make it though just about any workout class, stay hydrated…I seek out organic food and pasture-raised protein and cook my own meals…contemplate the idea of meditation. LOL. I have even educated others about health. When I published a natural living magazine, I was on my 25 month Sobriety Session…as I look back,it was as I was selling it that I starting sipping again. Hmmmmm….
My grandparents lived into their mid-late 90s, my great-grandmother lived to 100. I’m planning to be here for a long time. I’m only at the halfway mark.
I want to live a balanced life.
