Recovery: A Love Story with Jennifer Golden

Re-igniting love with her ex-husband in recovery.

Jennifer Golden is a living proof that you can change your life, and change your relationships once you get sober. For a long time, Jennifer lived a life where every ounce of energy she went to drinking alcohol. 

Jennifer’s life revolved around when, where, how, and how much she could drink. But on August 12, 2015, she woke up, looked in the mirror, and said NO MORE. She joined the local gym and found that working out took her mind off of drinking. So she kept going every day. She is now 4 1/2 years sober and the blessings keep coming! She loves to share my purpose in her story to help others who are suffering because you aren't alone and we do recover. 

Jen is a mom to a 12-year-old boy, works full time in the garbage industry, and is an independent representative for an Activewear company called Zyia Active. Consider her your personal workout gear shopper! 

Topics discussed:

  • Getting fit after getting sober. 
  • Exercise for well-being and mental health
  • Normal people drinking
  • How sobriety helps you to step into who you are authentically 
  • Exhausting trying to keep up and hide sobriety
  • Being open and free in sobriety
  • Her dating experience during sobriety 
  • How she is taking care of herself now during Quarantine 
  • Finding love again with her Ex-Husband 
  • Drinking during the day - having shakes and drinking at 7:00 in the morning
  • Being devious in sobriety and not being able to stop
