Wine Mom Michelle is giving it up. Do you want to kick wine or other bad habits? My world got rocked this week with a big scare with our daughter. Thankfully, she is ok but it got me thinking and wanting to go back to my old habits. Meet Michelle, she is converting from “wine Mom to a “dry” February and I’m showing you the coaching behind what it looks like to kick any addictive habit (using your phone too much, sugar, carbs, emotional eating, etc). All bad habits that you can kick, its possible for you.

Wine Mom and Bad Habits: Mindset Matters
OLD ME: When stress or tragedy hits I would burry my feelings by “powering through”, dive into work, crush a workout or wind down at night with a glass of wine. Maybe two.
NEW ME: Nope! Refocus and remove bad habits to better ones.
- I removed alcohol from my diet March 20, 2019.
- It’s easy to reach for a comfort food or drink to “temporarily get away from your problems.
- It doesn’t serve us and causes more harm than good.
Ask yourself this…
I this (insert your bad habit) serving me?
- Alcohol / smoking
- Skipping workouts
- Reaching for comfort foods
- Zoning out on technology or Netflix
- Not getting enough sleep
- Putting your health last
- Diving into work or a project to distract you
- Raging emotions and dumping on others to name a few
- It shows up differently for everyone
Meet Michelle Wine Mom be gone
I’ve been Coaching Michelle and she has a big goal of “no booze for February”. This is how we will work through achieving this goal:
Michelle’s Coaching Plan to Quit Booze
I asked her to share for accountability how she plans to stop drinking. When it comes to breaking a habit, it is difficult because there is an emotional component that is attached to the habit. Most times you don’t notice until you start digging. Click here to read how to kick your bad habits.
Goal: No wine or alcohol for February.
Struggles: Stressful job, shift work, being bored, stressful people in her life, kids, busy mom, wanting to shut down, sitting on the couch, one glass lead to two.
Tip #1: Remove Temptation

Tip #4: Replace with Workouts
“Committing to working out four times a week that way I’m replacing my bad habit with a good habit.” Having a “wine hangover” before a workout doesn’t feel so good. It will keep you honest with yourself.
Tip #4: Sleepy Time Tea
At night, I’m making myself a tea to keep my hands busy. It usually likes to hold a wine glass, now it’s holding a tea mug. It’s not enough to just WANT to quit something, you need a plan and action like Michelle.
