What a difference a month of Sobriety makes!

So, I figured writing here will motivate me on to the next level of taking my health back. Sure, I've been sober 36 days now (long or short days, depending on the way life treats me on any given day). But, unlike all of the other times that I got sober, this time I didn't jump right on the exercise trail to a new and much improved life. I'm smoking more than one would think humanly possible; I'm not overly committed to eating healthy and I drink far too much Dr. Pepper, which has tossed any chance of meaningful sleep down the drain.

On the plus side, I am going to IOP rehab and meetings. I have a sponsor that I talk to regularly. And I'm working the Steps. That's a much better step in the right direction than I ever took.

So, where do I want to go from here, you ask? Back into Ashtanga yoga; a diet of fish, veggies and rice and a much happier and healthier outlook than the one I have right now. Though, my attitude is so much better than it was 36 days ago. Those that have had to endure my hangover-ridden poor self-esteem = cranky animal attitude of the past will surely attest to that!

Well, we'll see how it goes. Let's enjoy the ride!
