Detox Day 5

October 11, 2013

Five days in and I can confidently say that I woke up this Friday morning thinking…

  • My body feels like it has energy
  • I feel stable – mentally and physically
  • I’m anxious to get to work and finish a pending assignment

With that said, I couldn’t help but feel that something was missing in my Friday morning. Excitement. Usually I know that if I make it through the day, my boyfriend will be waiting with a glass of wine at home, followed by great conversation, and then a step outside into the city to meet up with friends at a bar or just hang out together and see where the night takes us.

These activities – with the exception of great conversation – will be difficult without a drink or two or three. And honestly, I’m a little down because of it.

I know, I know. It’s pretty sad if I feel that my weekend is ruined if I don’t have alcohol’s presence. Of course we tossed around a few ideas about what we can do instead of drinking – head to the movie theater on foot to enjoy the view on the way, go to a pumpkin patch tomorrow morning, workout – again.

I’m sure we’ll make it work. Possibly even really enjoy ourselves. And I can’t wait to eat my words later. But right now, my alcohol-free weekend is bringing my Friday morning high, down.

Does anybody have any great ideas for alcohol-free activities and things to do in the city?

    Keep up the great work you two!As for ideas, I have a few nerdy ones: A morning run along the lakefront before it gets too crowded and the morning dew is still lingering is one of the most serene experiences I have had. If you go as far north as Montrose Harbour there is free parking and a secret path extra close to the water that most people have not discovered. Also, make a cup of tea and get your reading on at a Chicago Public Library, I always feel old school when I used to go to one but it’s a little different.

    Happy Detoxing!

    Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net
    the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they
    just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as
    well as defined out the whole thing without having side
    effect , people can take a signal. Will likely be back
    to get more. Thanks
