30 days

John & I have swore off all sweets and alcohol for 30 days!

Can we do it? YES WE CAN! It's not going to be easy though!

Day 1: Valentine's Day. Yep, we started this on the day of love. What were we thinking? We had the best dinner at Boscos and a glass of Pinot Noir would have tasted so good with it.

Day 2: I wanted a stinking cupcake so bad. I don't know why I was craving cupcakes, I don't usually eat them. I wanted a vanilla bean with buttercream frosting one. John was craving a Margarita from our favorite Mexican restaurant. We did good and didn't give into our cravings.

Day 3: No cravings...ate very clean.

Day 4: Today - I had a very busy day I didn't have time to think about sweets...until I got home. I wanted ice cream. I was afraid I was going to give in and eat some Ben & Jerry's (we had 6 small containers in the freezer) so I took the lids off of them all and turned them upside down in the sink and ran hot water on them. I watched all that creamy yumminess slide down the drain. It was painful to watch.

26 more days to go.....

Oh, I'd never be able to make it, Betty...I am a true CHOCOHOLIC! Best of luck on your "journey:! You can do it!!!

I don't have much of a sweet tooth, and I can live without alcohol...I just might try this!

Leland and I just stopped limited ourselves to having alcohol on fridays and saturdays. We used to have a glass or two of wine every night but we cut that out. Just making it from Saturday night to Friday night is long enough for me!

Good luck to you!

The alchohol I could handle, I only drink every once in a while, but I don't think I could survive 30 days without sweets! I get cravings and I don't think I'm strong enough to resist!
Good luck!

Good for you!! I hope at the end of the 26th day you feel cleaner and healthier! I need to do some kind of cleanse too. I feel so crummy. I have been obsessing about Michael's conditions and have been giving in to my temptations. It seems like a good idea at the time but then I feel so blah. Good luck with it all! You can do it!!
