It's been a couple more exhausting days (or maybe just one?!). Anyhoo, I ate yesterday (yay for me!) but my forgetful butt left the camera at home. Nothing to write home about...but dinner was at 10 since I didn't pack properly. I finished my wrap on the way upstairs to bed.
With work and school, and wedding planning, and breathing, I have realized that I am getting a little run down. In fact, I have had a cold for nearly a month now (WHO does that?). I was digging around and reading some blogs and a lot of you fabulous ladies have been participating in some challenges like Crap Free Week, Green Monster Challenges, Yoga Challenge. I'm not sure I could fully do any of them, but I did see one that looks right up my ally!
Leah of Simply Fabulous is doing the Drab to Fab Challenge!
Now of course, I will make my own modifications since I can't do the same exact thing. Here they are:
- Substitute tea instead of coffee during the week
- Split one coffee per week with Mike on Saturdays (our tradition)
- Quit all diet sodas
- Eliminate artificial sweetener use
- Drink at least 3 glasses of water in addition to tea
- Try a green smoothie! (I'm a little scared of them)
- Limit dessert to one per day to cut down on the sugar
This challenge will run from today (even though I started yesterday) until April 9 (4 weeks). I didn't mention alcohol in there because I barely drink (except for my weekend escapade last week, which was a fluke!). If I do have a drink, then I will confess.
The purpose of this challenge is to hydrate myself, eliminate some of the junk in my diet, and perk up my skin. Perhaps I might get rid of my marathon cold? Like Leah said, this is not a way to restrict or limit myself, just a way to be aware of how much 'other' stuff goes into my body. I hope you will support me and join along if you want.
I'm sipping on my tea, missing the coffee, and have visions of spiking some coffee with Bailey's. Off to a good start!
