I posted a slightly different version of this in another forum on April 1st.
In just 60* days, I will reach my 21st** birthday. Taking stock of my life, I realize that, among other things, I could really stand to lose 25*** pounds.
So I am publicly committing that between today and May 31st*, I will not eat or drink any refined carbs or sugars unless I have personally prepared the dish from scratch myself.
That means if I want to eat an entire pepperoni pizza, I can. I just have to start early because my dough recipe takes 10**** days.
There’s a heavy price to this commitment. Unless I cure my own, no bacon for 2* months. I realize me saying I’m giving up bacon on April Fools Day is cause for suspicion. I swear I am as serious as a heart attack.
Another price, my brewing gear has been packed up since before my daughter was born. It would be impractical to get it back out, brew, bottle and age a batch of beer just for this. So I’m going on the wagon for 2* months.
I’ll let you know how it goes.
