I hit 500 days alcohol-free yesterday.
I’d like to say I planned something super-fabulous to mark the occasion, but I kind of forgot that I was anywhere near the milestone until I randomly opened my day counting app** on Wednesday and saw I was at 499.
While I didn’t plan anything fabulous, I did do something fabulous – which was day 1 of a 3 day easter yoga retreat (3x2hr sessions, spread over 3 days) at the studio around the corner. There are 9 of us attending and the majority would easily be over 40, most fairly experienced – half can easily do headstands (I am definitely not in that half and am definitely one of the less experienced). Today’s session involved lots of draping selves over upturned chairs. It was quite challenging and I adored every minute of it! And did not disgrace myself (yet) which was even better.
I think this is probably the first time I’ve done something like this for myself in ages. I must seek out more challenging get-out-of-the-palace(oflove) activities.
** for a very long time I was checking the count multiple times a day – strange how the relationship changes over time.
