It's now day two without the nectar of the gods (my several daily bottles of Mountain Dew). Although I know I need to improve the quality of my diet, my biggest challenge to weight loss has always been my addiction to pop. I can rarely be found without a 22oz bottle somewhere nearby. When I've been successful before, it's always been when I give it up and drink only water and milk. I can't stand tea so that's just not an option for me. Maybe someday I'll learn to like it but so far the taste just makes me ill.
So anyway, as I mentioned at the beginning, I'm now two days without even a taste. The result right now is that I'm in a total fog. I am fighting a terrible headache and bad attitude. I've been through this before. I know that it will take about a day for this to subside and then I'll feel much better and be on my way to better health. The thing that ticks me off is that I've been through this before and know how bad I feel. Why then do I let myself slip back into a place where I'm faced with this time and again. I need to learn to take the lessons of the past and actually (here's a novel concept) LEARN FROM THEM!
Here's to a better mood tomorrow and the better health to follow! Now hand me the asprin and don't talk to me the rest of the day....
