    I'm being ambitious this year.

    No fast food (which I rarely eat as it is).
    No cokes.
    No sweet tea (as a Southerner this will be difficult).
    No eating out at lunch, instead brown-bagging every day. (I'm going to take $10 each day and donate it to charity instead.)

    So what are you giving up?

    I'm thinking of swearing off drive thrus and vending machines.

    Meat.
    Forty days of cheese pizza for me.

    But seriously, Inky, you should dial it down a notch. Or make the charity, yor daughter's college fund or the Institute for Denim Advancement.

    I too will be living off bean burritos. Got a few friends and family members that still go old style, no meat, dairy or oils. Basically, they eat bread and vegetables for 40 days. I tried once and only made it a week.

    Only done the no meat thing for the duration four times.

    You just can't quit me.
     
  11. I hope that charity is for Haiti and NOT some blogger (Blogs!) to go to spring training.

    I'm giving up cussing - or at least cutting down.
    Late night snacks - no food after 9 p.m.
    And lunch out ...

    Time to try to get back in shape and I fugire this will be a good start.
