I haven't articulated my goals for the new year very well, but I did decide that starting January 1st, I would cut meat, dairy and sugar. Today is January 2nd, and I broke that streak with the mocha latte I had after dinner tonight: sugar and dairy.
The part that makes this a true sin is that I totally knew that having that one mocha latte would break both streaks, two out of three, even. I knew it. I considered it. I did it anyway.
So, here's the thing: I'm restating the objective for the next week. Sunday to Sunday. No dairy, no sugar. I'll even try to avoid sugar substitutes (i.e. sugar-free syrups at Starbucks) and the agave nectar I use for coffee. I don't know how successful I'll be with the coffee/ agave issue, but I'll try anyway.
