A Little Late, But A 30 Day No Chocolate Challenge

Friday, December 07, 2012

I should have started this for December, but shoulda, woulda, coulda....

anyway, because I have been down lately, I have had a bigger tendency to binge, and I have been noticing that chocolate is among the major culprits. I love, love, love chocolate and unfortunately can't stop with a "reasonable" amount.

So, for the next 30 days, I'm challenging myself to give up chocolate. No more chocolate chips, nothing with chocolate (like cakes, cookies, fudge, etc.). The only thing I'm allowing myself is a tablespoon of cocoa powder a day (if I feel like it, sometimes I stir it into my oatmeal or greek yogurt and it helps satisfy a craving with something that is actually pretty virtuous).

This is very unlike me to even post that I'm doing this because I'm pretty much thinking I won't be able to follow through, and I don't like to fail, esp. in front of people. But what the heck, if I don't make it, at least I can say that I tried!

    Good luck! I decided, when i got serious about this journey, to never give up chocolate. I found a way to eat just a little bit every day - a Dove Promise on days when I've done well - to motivate me to do well and to never feel chocolate-deprived.
