I’ve been saving all the money I normally would have spent on drinking. I wasn’t sure what I would do with it but over a year of not drinking has added up.

So spending the money on vacations it is! The last few days was the first of few that I’m planning on taking this year. This was a mini vacation. I choose to go to Nashville. We had a few stops along the way. It was so much fun to relax and laugh.

My sister lives close to Nashville. I was able to spend sometime with her and look through old photographs of our grandmother. We were able to go out and eat. My niece and nephew are so full of life. It was funny when they found a fish that looked like Dory. They were so excited and it was refreshing to see such innocence laughing without a care in the world.

I’m back home and happy to be back in the gym. I ate really poorly over the last few days. I have decided that I’m going to train to run a 5k. It’s something I’ve never done. I use to be overweight and a smoker. It was something that I wouldn’t have been able to achieve before. Even if I have to walk it I’m going to do it. I do work every weekend and that’s when most of the run are held. I’ve found one that is in June. So training has begun.
