February 1st I am grateful for…..
Yesterday I decided to make a difference to my body and at the same time support a great charity fundraiser.
I read a post by Sarah Wilson yesterday: Sunday life: in which i give up booze for February . I had read about Febfast from Max Allen a wine writer in the Weekend Australian Magazine last week and thought that would be a great thing to do.
When I read Sarah’s post and she said join the winning team I thought, that sounds like me 🙂
This is a great cause and I decided a great challenge for me as I love a glass of red or two.
I thought as well as helping the foundation I could help myself. It is a healthy choice and my picture is that on Feb 28th 2010, my body will get a detox, lose some kilos and have a slimmer waist. As Sarah says” I told them they’d lose their liver bulges (alcohol deposits a tube of fat just under our ribs and jaw lines), that a glass of wine has the same caloric content as a sausage roll….:”
So here I am on Day 1 and I am looking forward to losing a few kilos, won’t be till the weekend rolls along that I will probably be craving a glass of red.
FebFast, the original fundraiser of its kind in Australia, is now in its third year. Our annual education, awareness and fundraising campaign invites people to participate in a booze-free February, and at the same time raise funds to support organisations working in research, prevention and service delivery concerning the use of alcohol and other drugs by young people. This year’s proceeds from registration payments and fundraising go towards the Australian Drug Foundation, Mater Health Services – Adolescent Drug and Acohol Withdrawal Service (Qld), Ted Noffs Foundation (NSW & ACT), Youth Substance Abuse Service (Vic) and FebFast’s grants program for smaller grass-roots organisations.
