GUYS. I’m sorry about the cringy click-baity headline but it’s what I want to talk about today and it’s for a good cause so if I enticed you with that tantalising cliff hanger of a blog post title, then it’s justified I swear.
So let’s get to it…
For the whole of March I will be giving up chocolate. No bars, no hot chocs, no cookies…and no Easter eggs. I’VE MADE A HUGE MISTAKE.
But it’s for The British Heart Foundation’s Dechox campaign, where they are inviting people to give up chocolate for the whole of March and raise some money for life-saving heart research.
In all honesty, I initially planned on stopping eating chocolate for the month for my own sake. I know, selfish right? My health has gone downhill again with regular indulgences (most of which involve chocolate), and so when I saw an advert on Facebook inviting me to give chocolate the finger, it made sense to challenge myself to it, and the whole charitable bit got tagged on to spur me on. After all, if I promise not to eat chocolate and someone donates to a good cause to encourage me, then it’s a win win.
I’ve already started getting some donations in already which is great – but if you would like to donate whatever you can, I would be really appreciative! I’d also really love some tips and advice on how the hell I’m going to curb those daily choccy cravings I am inevitably going to have next month!
