A few months ago my partner and I decided to give up desserts for 30-days. We both felt that we had been indulging a bit too much. It was May, sun-tanning weather was close at hand, and World Pride about to hit Toronto in just over a month. We had more than enough “vanity reasons” to make the choice to give up desserts.
Sometimes we need to stop or give up something to start a new habit. Sometimes we need to stop something for a short period to take a break. Whatever the reason, these types of challenges are cleansing.
In my case giving up desserts was cleansing on a “gut-level.” I felt better on the inside. I was less bloated and my stomach didn’t hurt.
It helped having Christiaan to partner with in my 30-days of no desserts challenge. When you have someone else to be accountable to, you have their moral support to succeed. If you mess up and feel like you’re failing, a few words from your accountability partner can make all the difference. Even if you make a simple mistake having that social support can help you to get right back on track.
Ask yourself, What eating habit do you want to improve?
What eating challenge would make you feel better and healthier in 30-days?
