100 Days of...

There are 102 days left until the new year… which meaning we’re coming in on 100 days of something fabulous I can do to round 2012. This got me thinking. What is something I can do for the final 100 days of this year? Yoga every day? That seems like a schedule issue. Eating healthy? Too generic. Not drinking? Well, geeze, that doesn’t sound like fun, but I’m leaning that way so far. Three gratitudes? I’ve been trying to do that randomly, but I’m not so sure it would happen every day.

There are, of course, some ideas online… I could apparently co-create a new reality in 100 days, (new car, new job, new mate?)… Sounds promising, but not for me.

How about 100 days of real, not processed foods? Yea, right… but awesome idea!

Ha… how about the 100 day burpee challenge? Awesome – one burpee day one, two on day two, three on three, so on and so forth…

There’s even a plan to dramatically change my life in any way I decide in 100 days…

I think what’s most important to remember here is that I’d like to do something in 100 days that I find personally challenging. I think one of the most challenging things for me involves booze right now. Far too much of my life is centered around drinking, albeit social drinking, but it’s the truth. One drink turns into three or four all too often, I’ll end up having a cigarette or two, (or three or four depending on how much I’m drinking), it gives me drunk-reasoning to call some boy who I’d otherwise have no sober intentions of contacting, and then I feel hungover, don’t do yoga or whatever else I intended to do the next morning, and I realize I spent way more money than I intended on spending.

So, as I approach the 100 days left in 2012 mark, I think that’s it for me. I know it seems kind of extreme. I could, of course, have a glass of wine with dinner here or there, but I’m kind of a go-big-or-go-home kind of girl. And this time, I’m going big, (rather than going home with the dude I met while drunk). This will be my 100 day cleanse, (even though I technically started a break from booze on September 9th). J

Goodbye alcohol. I’ll miss you Pinot Noir. Farewell prohibition era cocktails. Au revoir HopWorks. Go in Peace, Pasion at Las Primas. (Hello fewer calories, zero hangovers, and less money spent). 

The 100 day Booze Ban Katery Cleanse officially begins on Saturday, (and I’m already not sure this is such a great idea)! I'll update progress here. :)
