Am proud that I went to the gym and walked almost 3 miles on the tred mill.
Came home and ate eggplant/tomato mousaka which was delicious,
and had 1/2 cup of chicken salad.
finishing up a sparkling orange water with liquid stevia flavored sweetener, makes it taste like a dreamsicle. Yummy
Now am getting ready to go to a NAMI (national alliance of the mentally ill)
support group meeting.
Have not been in a year or so.
Hope to see some familiar faces.

The NAMI support group was smaller than I remembered. There were about 10 of us there. I knew some of them from before when I went. Carolyn is the daughter of one of my clients who past away this last year. She is very nice and gave me her card/phone number. I will call her and, maybe have coffee some time. She doesn't have a car so there is that. The meetings had changed some more structure which is good, small enough that every one shared twice. We talked about self care.
They meet 2 x per month.I will keep going.

Glad you got to the gym. I don't think I'd be able to walk 3 miles if my life depended on it.


The NAMI group sounds like it could be a good source of ongoing support. Hope you continue to like it.

I called Carolyn and asked her if she wanted to go to dinner on friday night. And she said yes. ( I have to find other activities to do that don't include drinking). She is a licensed florist and just got a job at the fresh market working 3 days a week.

I thought about it then I called her back and asked her if she would like to go to planet fitness with me(I have the up graded membership to bring a friend for free).
We could walk on the tred mill and then go grab a quick dinner somewhere. She said yes.
Something to do on a friday night....not trivia in their bar!
yeah!

That's great that you've found an alternative to trivia for Fri. night. And it's even healthy, which makes it even better.
Hope you have fun with Carolyn.

Am taking a much needed shower this morning and washing my hair. Bizi's thread:
Got up at 7am and have checked into the forums, now here.
Weighed 183.1 this morning. I have been snacking after dinner.
We went to Jason's deli for dinner last night.
I had this breakfast sandwich called a sammy.
egg/cheese/ham/mayo toasted on a small bread like thing flat and smooth and round.
I put a spicy olive pepper mixture on the sandwich and it was delicious!
ate 1 small ginger bread muffin and a small ice cream cone. No wonder I am not losing weight. Bizi's thread:
I need to be more disciplined.
Jeff and I are watching LOST again for the umpteen time. love it!
I have been drinking hot tea at night while watching and I microwave a bean like pillow for my back ache which seems to be better. Thank goodness as my requires alot of kneeling and getting up and down, bending over etc.
Today makes 10 days AF(this time around).
Tonight is AA. I will ask for a sponsor. Bizi's thread:
I will print out the Women for sobriety statements and go over them with her once I meet up with her. I will ask for a female, hopefully there will be one.
The place was packed over 100 people there, surly there will be a female sponsor available.
It meets at 8pm.
Onto my 3rd cup of coffee....need to hop into the shower!
Hate getting in there, but then I like the hot water until it runs out. So frustrating.
have a great day yall. Bizi's thread:
(((((HUGS))))) to those who need them....

Bizi,

I don't want to be a downer on your enthusiasm, but it's my experience that AA and WFS do not coexist all that peacefully. Why do you want a sponsor.. You need to be very clear on that, before you start looking for a sponsor. And the primary purpose in most cases, of a sponsor, is to help you work the 12 steps, and get integrated into AA. An AA sponsor would not be qualified and indeed would probably not be interested in WFS's statements.


Also the 2 programs start at different points. AA insists that you admit you are powerless and that only a higher power can help you stay sober. WFS says it's your personal responsibility to stay sober and improve your life. This difference in philosophy is a pretty big divide.


Some women in WFS do attend AA, for IRL support of being with other people who have the same addiction, but you have to keep the 2 somewhat compartmentalized. At AA don't talk about WFS and on the WFS forums don't talk about AA except tangentally.


If you're serious about exploring WFS as your recovery program, order the beginner's bundle. It has stuff to get you started.


Just my opinion.
