What could you give up for 40 days? An update

via Pioneer Woman
We're two weeks into the "what could you give up for 40 days?" challenge (or otherwise known as Do Without") and I'm dying, to be quite honest! See that pie -- The Pioneer Woman is trying to send me over the edge.

My sugar habit has been replaced with a salt, I noticed this week. I went to Whole Foods on my lunch to pick up a few things and picked up a bag of kettle chips, salted almonds and cheese.  This probably isn't a good idea since I have high blood pressure!

I resisted many of my co-worker's candy jars, office cake, office brownies and doughnuts.  If I need a sweet fix, I will drink a Diet Dr. Pepper (which isn't exactly good for you but accessible due to free soda at work).

I guess, I'm 1/4 of the way through the challenge. I'm really looking forward to Easter and dreaming of treats I'm going to eat that day.

P.S. I'm also in good company though, thanks to my blogging buddies Rebecca Jean and Catie.

  1. OMG - Are we really only a quarter of the way through this challenge?!?! We had some beautiful weather with sunshine & 70 degree temps, so it hasn't been too hard to resist my favorite warm drink. Today, however it was in the low 40s, and it snowed a bit - I so desperately wanted a hot cup of coffee! I'm gonna have to dig deep to make it through this, but I promise I won't give in! It helps knowing I'm not alone, so you keep up the good work too!
