Challenge Accepted!

With it being only a couple weeks into the New Year and everyone still talking about their resolutions, it really got me thinking. Ekk! Scary thought, I know!  While in my state of thinking, I decided I wanted to come up with a way to start challenging myself in 2014. I most certainly want to succeed at whatever challenge I set for myself. But I am that person who, if I set a goal that I feel right now is out of reach. You can bet your ass that I will say EFF-IT in the first few days! So, I would like to think the more small goals I can complete; the more confident I will become in feeling that I can achieve anything I set my mind too.
So onto my challenge….
Has anyone seen the article of the lady from Seattle who only ate Starbucks for the last year??
Let me just say, I’m a Starbucks lover just as much as the next white girl…but that is straight up CRAY CRAY! I can guarantee you I would never ever want to eat at 1 place for a year. I love all kinds of food wayyyy to much to deprive myself in that way. Even though I think she’s completely nuts-o, I have to applaud her on the self-control and determination because I would have probably stabbed someone with a fork because I was craving something over than lattes and muffins.
But it was after reading the article that I considered trying to challenging myself in any kind of way. I thought about giving up alcohol for 30 days, but we all know that shit got vetoed in a hurry! I also thought about starting with the 30 day squat challenge…Nahhh.  Then I had a brilliant thought…I decided to give something up that I know is really not good for me and kinda weird….Flamin’ Cheetos. Yep.  I crave them. I want them all the damn time. They are my crack. It’s insane, because I KNOW how horrible they are for me but, for some reason I can’t control myself around those hot little crunchy chips! So after battling with myself for a few minutes on rather I could give up my drug of choice. I decided that I CAN do it. J
So that is my goal from today, January 16th until February 16th…give up Flamin’ Cheetos. That may sound easy to most of you but trust me when I say it won’t be for me.


  1. I could definitely eat at one place... but Starbucks?! Pffft.

  2. Good luck with your challenge! You can do it! I decided to give up alcohol until my wedding because I'm trying to get in the best shape that I've ever been in. It's been a month so far and its so hard not caving in sometimes and having a glass of wine! Anyways, I just came across your blog and wanted to say hi! I'm excited to follow along :)
