Saddle Up! 3/27/13

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

Well in the run up to one of my best friend's wedding, as the Matron of Honor I took on too much and was so busy I fell into my old ways. I went back to drinking soda, and wasn't working out as much as I should. I have found that once I start I'm back on the sauce for at least a week because when I come off of soda I get lethargic and can't get up for work in the morning. The worst thing is that if I drink too much caffeine I get Ocular Migraines. (It blurs out a portion of my vision for up to 10 minutes) So I have made a commitment to myself that as of Friday morning no more soda.

On a positive note I discovered a way to make walking/working out fun and interesting. It's called Geocaching and it's a real life treasure hunt. So we park a mile or so away from a GPS coordinate where we know a cach is and walk to it. It is so much fun and makes our walk far more interesting. If you're interested check it out at

    That sounds fun. i will have to check out the link! I need to get much more motivated than I have been of late. Good for you giving up soda again. It is so easy to go back to what you are familiar with. I gave up soda years ago because it made my stomach so gassy. When i met my hubby he was a soda salesman so I was drinking way too much too. I guess you have an extreme reaction so now is the time to give it up! Good for you! emoticon

    Thanks everyone! I love the encouragement. I know mentally that soda is the end of me, it's just accepting it that's the hard part!!

    I totally get the soda addiction, you come by it honestly. That is the one thing I can't let myself have or I'll be covered in chocolate bars by morning (I know your laughing as you read this thinking of the visual but it's true!). I admit it Coca Cola is my gateway drug! I have been tempted by and tasted several things since changing my eating habits but soda diet or regular is off limits to me FOREVER! Ugh I should have had some kind of goodbye ceremony or something, but i just quit cold turkey it was the worst week of my life. Hang in there kiddo you will make it. I'm so glad you chose to make changes before you ended up like me.
