    I decided today to mix up my maintenance by challenging myself yet again! I am the type of gal that loves a challenge, so I am pretty excited to go full throttle and see if I can do this.

    For the next 21 days, I have decided to cut out sugar and chocolate. I've always heard it takes 21 days to change a habit, so I am hoping my cravings for sugar and chocolate will dissipate after the 21 days! It would be wonderful if it does...

    Day 17
    Day 18

    Day 20
    Day 21

    Wish me luck peeps. Feel free to jump in and challenge yourself to something for 21 days as well.
    It doesn't have to be a food challenge, you could pick an exercise challenge, no tv challenge, no negative body image comments to yourself etc.

    Please feel free to join in, what is 3 weeks? I owe it to myself to improve upon my few bad habits......

    Come March 1st, I want to SHOUT I did it!

    I'd like to make sure I spend some quality time with my OH. Both our work lives are very busy and we get home and veg in front of the TV. So, to spend some time talking and planning our future would be really great. I'm in for the 21 day challenge!

    Thank you Lacey! I just have to BELIEVE and I will ACHIEVE! Even though my birthday is coming up on Valentines Day, I will continue to stick to my 21 day plan, I will not be eating any cake, icecream or chocolate. I really want to do this and FOCUS on becoming even more healthier. I do not want to ever become a diabetic because of my bad sugar habits. I saw a dear friend lose both of his legs to diabetes, and that was a huge wakeup call! My health is more important to me these days rather than od-ing on cake and chocolates.... Besides, nothing tastes as good as becoming fit and fabulous and flab-u-lessly fashionable either!!!!

    Thanks Dbl Row. Baby step it then, go one day, then the following week try 2 days, etc.

    The reason I am going gung-ho on this one is this. Are you familiar with lent? If not, Catholics have lent and it is the 40 days before Easter, and you should give something up during lent, and Catholics cannot eat meat except on fridays etc, it is a way of fasting etc. Anyways, without getting to religious, being I was born Catholic and many of my friends have given stuff up for lent and are trying for the full 40 days, I thought hmmnnn why don't I join in with this and do a 21 day give up. Besides being my 1 year maintenance is just under 40 days away, I can continuing to keep the pounds at bay by elminating the sugar and chocchie and who knows maybe I will make it the full 37 remaining days. But I am shooting for 21 days for now and that is my story and I'm sticking to it!

    LOL no a biscuit, like a hob nob? rich tea? Jammy Dodgers?? chocolate digestives?
    And i love biscuits, just havnt had any since i got serious, because I dont do one biscuit, I do one pack!
    i dont even miss them now, my fav was probably oh .... coconut rings. They kind of melt in your mouth.

    (By the way, i dont think you can edit your initial post after so long)
