It's essentially an alcohol free month (the shortest of the year!!!) We haven't registered but think that it is a good opportunity to make a short term commitment to healthier living for a set period and then hopefully carry that on after the challenge.
We don't drink excessively in our house so have decided that it might be a good opportunity to go without booze and soft drink of any sort for 28 days as well as take away (apart from subway) over the same period.
I've basically started this already. I've just signed up for a 6 week boot camp, so figured I should try and help my progress but cutting the booze...I used to have at least a couple of drinks a night, so it has made a difference I think
I'd like to, I have over indulged over the festive season......I have next to no will power however, my only successful periods of abstinence have been two pregnancies! And I'm not going through one of those again!
Guess I have a day to make up my mind don't I......
I'll join you, but I'm ditching sugar for the month. (I rarely drink anything other than water, coffee or tea.) So cakes, biscuits, lollies etc are all out. I will let myself have the occasional bit of 85% chocolate to keep some sanity!
Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
