When I told my friend what this weeks challenge was her instant response was ‘F**k that!’ and I must admit I was more than a little daunted about giving up all three. Although I don’t consider myself to be into drugs in any shape or form you have to consider why is the thought of living without these three things for four days such a challenge. Are they not another form of drugs if we are addicted to them or are they just a habit that resides in our lives because we are on auto pilot and we partake because everyone else does? Is everyone using a crutch of some kind to get through the day?

But hey, I like a challenge, if someone says I can’t do something then I think hmmm I will find a way and I am not keen on rolling over and saying I can’t.

That said my week has been crazy so far and the timing a little off for me and I need to put some planning in place. So my four days will start Sunday and I will let you know how I get on if I am not in bed dying of withdrawal symptoms as I do like my paneds *!

I'm a single parent of ONE lovely lanky teenager.. I live in deepest rural Wales . My 'proper' job is in marketing and events but I am also a trained reflexologist, masseur and reiki giver (go figure!) I also look after my Mum who is in her late 80's, my dog Ted, my cat Black and my hens and dream is to have a small holding and offer people holidays in my teepee and maybe the odd therapy as you can see I am a mass of contradictions.... I like to walk, do yoga, eat salad and visit new places but I also like to drive fast, Feast ice lollies, vodka on Friday's with friends(, which leads to dancing in my kitchen) my coffee , and staying up late... I can be outgoing but also extremely shy so like the rest of you I am still trying to figure it out one day at a time...
