Or, ShApril Weeks 3 & 4 Well another ShApril has come and gone, and rather quickly! This was a ShApril I had anxiety going into. I experienced changes I wasn't ready to admit to myself. And mostly, it gave me my high school body and energy back. No Alcohol Like I've said I decided to do a dry month for ShApril 2016. My last drink was on my flight back from India and Nepal on March 28th. Thirty-four days without alcohol is definitely a record for me since I was about nineteen.
Shapril – or “Get in shape in April” – is going to be different this year. My husband and I, for the past four years or so, have used the month of April to get into shape after the long Torontonian winter. We set pretty basic guidelines for ourselves at frist, like eating healthy and always taking the stairs. Last year I wanted to try something really extreme: eating no processed food at all. (Check out last year’s ShApril here and my shocking processed food clean out here).
