Together, we achieve more…

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of participating in a running event with some girlfriends. Over the last several months, I had been working towards achieving a particular time goal. With the help of a selfless friend (meaning she ran the race with me and while she could have gone much faster, she chose stay with me to help me meet my goal), I achieved my goal. This was a huge gift and an incredible act of kindness for which I will always be grateful. This is why I love running, my running tribe and the running community.

Finally, something has clicked for me in a big way. After seeing how I reaped the benefit of working with someone on a goal this past weekend, I have decided to take this fun fact and apply it to my other goal of not drinking.

Today I begin meeting with one of two groups that will talk about our relationship with alcohol. I am over the moon that these groups are available and local to me. It will be so nice to connect with others and share with you what I learn.

Additionally, I will be launching a sober curious challenge via a private facebook group beginning in January. If you or someone you know is looking to give being sober a try, there will be a 30 day, 60 day and 90 challenge. Anyone can join and we can support one another in our efforts. For me, this will be a wonderful way to be held accountable as well as supporting others. This will be a compassionate and non-judgmental space for us to share what we feel and our challenges and it is private. There will be more information coming soon. If you are interested, send me a message).

Thanks as always for reading. I wish all of you a wonderful week.

Next week, I will share how I get through a few holiday parties this weekend. Lots of love. XO

What a privilege to get to connect with you, the reader. Thank you for taking time to read this blog. My family is my world. I am a wife, mom, daughter, sister, coach and friend to some wonderful humans. I have a passion for helping people feel good from the inside out. My background is in health and wellness and presently, I own manage a small personal training business. I love to swim/bike/run, teach fitness classes, read, cook and talk all things self care. In recent months, I have decided to improve my relationship with alcohol which may mean ultimately going sober. This blog is about how I came to this decision and the journey ahead. My hope is to connect with others in the same place and share things that may help. May we openly talk about the hard things like our emotions and feelings and lift one another up by sharing our love and strength.
