"Don't count the days, make the days count!"

My Year No Beer (Week 12)

As Mohammad Ali said “Don’t count the days, make the days count.” So with Week 12 of My Year No Beer under the belt, I have to say I am really feeling the benefits mentally and physically and making each day count, I’m certainly not counting the days!

With close to 3 months off the booze, this week I have really started to appreciate how when I don’t drink (even moderately) I have a real spring in my step and generally feel much happier, productive, present and grateful. Even grateful about getting soaked to the bone on my run this morning!
