DeChox March


I have an addiction*. Yes it’s sad to admit it but on the other hand, admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery. My addiction is to Blue Ribband chocolate bars. I just can’t get enough of them. Asda currently have a special offer that you get 16 bars for £2. I just cannot resist.

* Please note that I’m not making light of any sort pf addiction. I genuinely have no other way to explain my craving for these chocolate bars.

So when the DeChox challenge popped up on my Facebook feed I thought “YES! That’s a way to kick the habit!”The challenge is to not eat any chocolate for the month of March to help the British Heart Foundation fund its life saving heart research. That means absolutely no chocolate bars, no chocolate cake, and most importantly no Blue Ribbands! And that’s why I need your help.

As little as £3 (the price of a large chocolate bar), could pay for three disposable flasks that are used daily by the BHF’s scientists in their pioneering research. Or £10 (the cost of a fancy cake) could help pay for a story pack to help a child grieve for the loss of a loved one.

I’d be very grateful if you would consider donating to my DECHOX via my JustGiving page. Giving through JustGiving is quick, easy and secure; you can also Gift Aid your donation at the click of a button making it worth 25% more. Alternatively, you can buy me a treat pass here!

I’ll keep you posted on how I get on but in the meantime, I am going to eat the last couple of Blue Ribbands today! Wish me luck!!

    Sugar is addictive, so you are right when you say that you have an addiction. I hope this month goes smoothly for you. If you can avoid sugar a couple of months, you’ll start to see the results.
