The Give It Up challenge is officially under way in the Get Fit For 2010 community group! Give It Up is a community challenge asking readers to give up any vice or bad habit for two weeks. The hope is that we'll all be healthier, more informed, and conscious individuals when this challenge is over. I've given up meat, and even though it's been tough, I already feel like a smarter eater and a better cook. It also makes it a lot easier that I am not alone in this endeavor — here's a sample of the things our community members are giving up:
- Cutting out sugar from your diet is a toughie, but Wiggle and Angelica are ready for the challenge.
- Giving up on little indulgences is a common theme: Rensy is putting an end to her afternoon binges, Nancita is breaking her Frappuccino habit, and AutumnSky is saying arrivederci to Italian desserts.
- If you thought sugar was hard, what about salt? DellaBella is saying goodbye to sodium.
- Like me, Lauren is living sans meat for the next two weeks.
It's never to late to join the challenge with us. Head on over to the Get Fit For 2010 community group and let us know what bad habit, vice, or guilty pleasure you'll be giving up.
