Jen's Challenges 2010 - 30 Days Chocolate Free - DONE!! :D


x x x
It started as a bet. I have to give up chocolate for a month.

I started on the 6th of January. Well. I restarted... I started on the 1st January, but my work colleagues bought me a chocolate birthday cake on the 5th, and I had a small slice of that.

So ... 6th January, to 5th February 2010 - I am off the sweet goodness that is chocolate.

And I have done well. No chocolate, no hot chocolate, no real cravings... I'm quite proud of myself.

The only bit of support I have asked is that my fella doesn't have those chocolate sponge puddings with the chocolate sauce, when I am there haha. I fear I wouldn't cope with the smell..

Unfortunately, I am finding it tough now. I really fancy a curly wurly, or some chocolate buttons.

Come onnnn Jenny, only 10 days left... !!!!!

Well done you.
Crisps are my chocolate and I haven't had any for two weeks (good for me!) so I know how hard it is. Keep going!!
What do you win/lose?

6 days, 6 DAYS!!! :D haha

Cheers for the support, wow 2 weeks! Well done!!! It's the first that is the toughest, I think.. :)

Are you challenging yourself, or detoxing? hehe

The story behind my bet was, I said that I didn't think there was a hope in hell of Rage Against the Machine getting christmas number one, infact I was so certain they wouldn't that if they did... I would give up chocolate til I was 30. Oh... I said this on Facebook too. If it was a tipsy declaration down the pub, I might have been able to get away with it...!

Then it happened.

And everyone laughed at me, and said there was no way I could do it, no-one was expecting Little Miss Chocoholic to give up chocolate for 4 years... So my fella said I should at least do a 30-day ban as a goodwill gesture. I like the idea of this way better than 4 years...

I actually feel loads better, for not eating a bar of chocolate a day. Three some days. It has been a good thing, but I think that I will have some chocolate when I can, and then do it all again :) Now that I have proved I can!

You are doing so well, If I had to give up wine for thirty days I dont think I could do it. That's my weekness ;)

Aw I bet you could. Honestly, it has completely flown by... I can't believe I've nearly done it!

The fella said he was really proud of me last night :D And I have agreed that I will have some chocolate on Saturday, and then start it all over again! :)

I must be mad...!
