Life of a Non-drinker

So in the past 8 days I have had several opportunities not to drink. The way I see it is that I am only really exercising my goal of not drinking for 365 days at times when I would normally drink but have to choose not to. This combined with the fact that I was hanging out with some family that are alcoholics and the way the talk about alcohol is completely different than the way I fell about it. The where mentioning how they can't see the point in drinking only one drink. I know that food has a similar pull to me. Only recently have I seen any pleasure in portion control or self restraint. But last night is was slightly a bummer to not drink even though I all of my friends had a beer and I would have had one or two and it would have been a good time. But in the long run I feel better that I am accomplishing this goal and fulfilling a commitment I made.

Day 75 I Feel Like a Lazy Bum

I was looking at the list of postings and there was only one for nearly a whole month then it made me feel even worse to realize that I didn't even do a day 60 or day 70 update. So here I am on day 75 and I haven't been walking which annoys me. I have kind have still leveled out with the weight loss around 250 lbs. It was cool for several days I was at 248 which made me feel cool becuase I was 288 back in March. So that means I had lost 40lbs but I gained a little weight or drank some water and got back up to 249.
I am super close to being done with my accessories website. Which is exciting though the problem right now is I have a lot of things in the works but I am not keeping up on them. I stalled out on reading the Bible. I haven't been walking, I haven't finished the CD and Board Game lists. I haven't been practicing photoshop. I haven't been going on dates. I fell asleep during Ben Hur. It has been ruff or really lazy going lately.
Though I have a new resolve seeing how close I am to day 100 or 101. I am not sure which is the more significant day. Hopefully I will have a lot to say on both days. I hope that I will have a lot accomplished buy then and a whole new set of things in the works. Plus I am going to update the in Goals done or in Progress Side Bar. Now it has all of the accomplished goals on top and and the ones I am working on below. I am going to break it up into two lists once there are 21 things on the list.

I started my quest to go see 20 museums. It was with the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. It was quite fascinating and really inspired me. It showed me that I could do so much more with my artistic abilities. I feel like I am very creative and like making things but I waste a lot of time surfing the internet and sleeping.

It was amazing to see what other people have done with there talents. I was especially impressed by the Marcel Ducamp's chess board with no squares. Cosima Von Bonin's exhibit was one of the most engaging artistic experiences that I have ever had.
