Those who know me, know that I like a drink, as demonstrated with the images below! I randomly came up with the bright idea of roping in some fellow bloggers to partake in Sober For October with me… not only for a good cause, but also as a kick start for losing weight and saving money for Christmas. (Plus my liver needed a slight rest from all the recent partying!) So, albeit we are now on the 3rd October, not a drop of liquor has passed my lips since Thursday 26th September… almost a week and I am on a roll!
I am feeling much better in myself, my skin looks awesome due to all the water I am drinking and I am sure my bank balance is feeling slightly happier too! Sober For October is all in aid of a very good cause… supporting Macmillan Cancer Support – by us all taking part in Go Sober, we will be helping Macmillan in providing practical, medical and financial support and push for better cancer care.
Having seen my Mum overcome cancer twice and my beloved Grandad succumb to the bastard disease I have always wanted to give something back. I am not a runner, by any stretch of the imagination, I cannot run 5 paces let alone 5k – so for me, giving up the amber nectar for a month to me feels like I am running my own marathon.
But fear not… there are plenty of parties organised come the 1st November to make up for lost time… not that I condone binge drinking at all *shakes head* So why not check out our Booze Free Bloggers Team and DIG DEEP!!!! Myself, Heather, Karen, Becky and Cass are all doing this for a very good cause and could really do with your support. We have all given up something we really like (or in my case love!) and every penny helps a very good charity… please be generous and wish us well!
