Change Your Life Challenge

I don't think I'm in a rut, or that I really need to change up much considering my life just went through a GIANT change, but I have a serious FOMO and therefore just HADDDDDDDDDD to participate in this. No such thing as too much change, says the girl who really hates change a lot. Just ask my mom, I usually just kind of hibernate until life settles down again. But no more, I've started embracing change for what it is, an opportunity to better my life and the lives of people around me.

Plus, some of my favorite blogger friends are the brains behind the operation and I do whatever they say. And maybe we'll like be famous or something, who knows. It's worth a shot, right? And PS, guys, can I get credit for helping by contributing hilarious tweets?
Every month I will feature a different week-long challenge, encouraging everyone to participate.

So, without further ado, I introduce to you the start of:

Each month a different challenge will be featured and I will be calling on you, my lovely readers, to join me and blog (if you have have a blog!) about your progress.

Our first challenge:

Who: YOU (and anyone else you want to encourage to participate!)

What: Eat vegan or vegetarian (your choice), every meal for a full week (ahem...that's seven days, not five!)

When: November 29th, 2010 through December 6, 2010

Why: I understand that the holidays are coming up, which is why this challenge starts after Thanksgiving. The idea is to challenge yourself to eat differently for a week.
Where: Anywhere and everywhere you eat!

How: I will be posting ideas and recipes (feel free to comment with your own ideas, as well), tips and local restaurants to help make this as easy as possible. I may even venture to some veggie restaurants around ATL that I haven't tried yet. Hello 101 in 1001 goal! Most importantly, it's about incorporating the changes into your life, instead of trying to change your life to suit these changes. Don't try to go too over-the-top. Make it feasible and, more importantly, make it enjoyable!

If you are ready to participate in this challenge, then comment on this entry with your email address and expect a challenge email update soon. Emails will be sent out within 24 hours of you leaving your comment to give you details about the challenge, and you will have ample time to ask questions, share inspiration, anything and everything.
