Anyone who knows me knows that I really do enjoy a good glass of wine or 2 at the end of the day. So when I started reading this book called The Hormone Reset, it suggested that I stay off alcohol for three days, I thought to myself okay, that is do-able.
Then it encouraged me to go off alcohol for the next 21 days to see how I felt I thought to myself, well I did three days very easily so why not take the plunge?
Before I knew it I was 21 days done, and I started thinking if I was ready to have a drink again? I found that I didn’t want to go back to my old ways just yet I really felt like setting myself a personal challenge to see how strong my willpower really was. I had never done anything like this before so I guess it was just a personal achievement I wanted to prove to myself. And why not get the health benefits at the same time. I’m sure my liver and kidney could use the break!
Then I read somewhere that if you do something for 90 days it becomes a lifestyle, so I came up with this crazy idea that for 90 days I would not only give up alcohol but red meat and caffeine too!! I am an all or nothing type personality so it made sense to me. I was off and racing with my 21 days already under my belt!
As I write this today I have ten days left to complete my 90 day challenge and I have already started my next… Probably because Im feeling so good. Im not going to lie I am looking forward to a little sip come 1st August, but hey I think I deserve it ? Who wants to join me on the next challenge?
