This Sunday will mark 31 long days. It sounds quite silly, really.
But I will have gone 31 days without coffee.
It was part of my New Years Resolutions; to give something up/ try something new and challenge myself. Coffee is my weakness- I would buy three cups (three large cups) of coffee a day, which gradually reduced to one a day. Which really is still too much.
I craved coffee everyday; for some reason the cravings never went away; maybe my belly knew that coffee would return one day. This is the longest that I've been without a single ground bean of love, and I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to my first Medium Soya Latte! Heck, it's been so long that Costa have had two new advertising campaigns! I even managed to withstand the temptation of Peter Andre serving me coffee at Piccadilly Circus!
So now I'm moving onto February. I have a few ideas floating around; the one which I keep coming back to, is getting my Five-a-Day. Eating five portions of fruit and vegetables everyday. Sounds pretty easy, what with being vegan and all, and not really eating any meat replacement. But I really don't think that I do eat 5 a day! In fact sometimes I struggle just to eat three meals a day! So I think this challenge would be good for me. I'm a little worried about the cost, but it can't make that much difference to my shopping bill, right?
So what do you guys think? Any other suggestions and challenges you'd like me to try!
