{January Joy - 2nd Jan}


The prompt from Florence Finds #JanuaryJoy for the 2nd is to 'have a dry week/month'.

In 2011, I started a healthy eating & fitness regimen with the help of a personal trainer and lost 3.5 stone. I gave up alcohol for 6 months, partly for the weight loss and I also couldn't really drink alcohol anyway at that time due to the antidepressants that I was taking (I did it once & was violently sick - not to be repeated!!).

Fast forward to 2013 and I do now drink occasionally but not often. When I do drink, I'm a complete lightweight!! There is also nothing worse than being hungover & in charge two demanding toddlers, so I tend to only have a drink when I don't have the children the following day (or work for that matter!),  which doesn't happen very often as my regular nights without the kiddies are 'school nights'.

So I've decided that a bigger challenge for me would be to have a week without sweets or chocolate (I am sat writing this at 7pm on New Year's Day and will be scheduling the post for the 2nd, whilst scoffing a packet of the kids chocolate biscuits and drinking a hot chocolate - Highlights, so that makes it ok, right?). For a while I was exercising 4-5 times a week and running frequently, which meant I could eat what I wanted and still maintain my weight. I've become lazy, am rarely exercising (twice a week max, typically once a week) but I'm continuing to stuff my face with sugar. I would go as far as saying I have an addiction!


Anyway, let's see how I manage without for the next week or so. (I doubt I'll manage it for more than a week as it's my birthday in the 14th and I'm reckoning there may be cake at my work!! Hint hint!!)
