A (sort of) New Year’s Resolution

I found a challenge on Facebook, and I decided to try it out.

The challenge? No sweets for 8 weeks, starting Monday 5th. That is today. Eep.

Ph43r my epic Paint skillz!

The penalty for not managing the challenge? I have to donate NOK 200,- to a charity of my choice.

Since the definition of sweets is kind of loose, and everyone defines it differently, here are my rules:

No candy
No chocolate
No soda (sparkling water is okay, though)
No energy drinks (coffee is okay, or else I will die at work)
No cake (except one small slice on special occasions, if someone invites me to a birthday or similar event)
No ice cream
No drinks with added sugar (I can’t say drinks with sugar here, due to milk having milk sugar naturally. Chocolate-flavoured milk is, however, off-limits.)
No chips
No extra sugar on my morning cereal

So yeah. I think I’ll manage. It will be hard, though. I know myself, and I love my sweets and snacks.

Day Zero Project

I’m a part of a group of people who are going to start a list of 101 things we want to accomplish in 1001 days, starting January 1st 2015. We all have different lists, and we’re using the web page dayzeroproject.com to keep track of this.

You can find my personal list here, or you can click the link on the top of the page, which will lead you to the list. I’m pretty sure the list on my actual Day Zero Project profile will be updated more often than the one I have pasted here on my blog, but I will try to update them both.

Some of the goals are really easy to do, others are easy, but take time, and others again are harder. But all the things on this list are things I think I’ll be able to do during 1001 days (2,7 years), so I have hopes that I’ll get through them all.

Some of the things on my list are on someone else’s list too, so some things we’ll do together. Other things, we’ll do alone.

I will try to make some posts about my progress through this project, but since I know myself pretty well, there might also not be too many updates. We’ll see.

Now I just can’t wait until I’m allowed to start!
