Oh, wait; you were serious?

I eat very little meat, but I love my burgers once or twice a month. And several beers or glasses of wine a week. I'm good


I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

idkam...

That's awesome!! I know it takes a lot of will-power to give up things we enjoy.

How are you feeling?

That is going to be soooooo good for your system!

Whenever I consciously cut that stuff out my body feels so much better.

You can do it!

Good luck!

While I'm personally skeptical of the quick-fix cleanses (the stuff you'd see on a Buzzfeed "10 weird ways to cleanse your system" kind of article, for example), things like your current quest are worth admiration even if only for the self-discipline it takes to commit and complete them.

I could easily give up the wine or beer or alcohol since I don't drink any of it anyway...

But I would die w/out the red meat because there is no chicken allowed in my house...

Good for you, idkam! You can do it!

I am in the process of putting together some health and fitness goals for myself as well.

Here's to a happy and healthy 2014!

Thanks for the well wishes my SI friends...Today is my first day..... I do not eat alot of red meats...however, for thanksgiving and christmas holidays i think i ate and indulged in alcohol consumption way too much...

We went to a friends house for NYE and the menu was steak, lobster, veges, and a pasta dish.... I still feel bloated from what i ate...lol!!!!

That's a great start!
Congratulations!

The alcohol I agree with (1711 days sober today)....BUT
I cannot give up red meat!

Don't forget to drink lots of water!

Good luck with your cleansing quest.

Giving both of these things up at the same time for me would not be good.
I would probably need to be hospitalized. I loves my Red Meat. Im a midwestern girl from farm country. There is nothing bad about red meat, esp if it is lean, and fresh.

Giving up the booze.....well lets say I probably need to join another forum to deal with that issue. LOL. Seriously Red Wine is good for the heart, and soul, and when mommy drinks it, for the kids.
