Can you believe that January is almost done? That we have almost completed one month of the new year? How are you going with your resolutions and goals for this year?
One of my goals for the year was to focus more on healthy eating as I continue to exercise. Over the holidays, and well, a lot of January, I ate a lot and drank a lot. Some of the Tassie ciders were just too good. I then saw someone on my personal Facebook page sign up for FebFast. As I looked into it, I thought it would be the perfect way for me to detox from December and January and thereby start a healthy habit for the rest of the year. I couldn’t figure out whether I should give up sugar or alcohol.
In the end, I decided to give up both.
Yes my dear readers, I am going to give up all refined sugars and all forms of alcohol in February 2015. All for a good cause. The funds raised go towards helping young people with addictions.
I have given up refined sugars before and after the first week, it wasn’t too hard. Alcohol is going to be interesting though given that I do like a couple of drinks at the end of the week. I think I could just become one crazy irritable bitch by the end of the first week. But I just need to tell myself it’s for a good cause. And the benefits would also be a healthier lifestyle for me personally.
As part of FebFast, I am of course, raising funds. I would love if you could donate. You can click on My Fundraising Page to donate any amount. Amounts over $2 are tax deductible.
Additionally, you could sign up for the challenge too and decide to give up either sugar, alcohol, smoking, junk food or social media — whatever you biggest vice is, I suppose. If you do, please share your page with me so I can support you too.
Thanks in advance for any support you can offer.
Have you registered for FebFast? Or ever done anything like this before?
Have you got any tips on how to go without refined sugar and alcohol at the same time?
