Well so many of you have followed me as I contemplate giving up diet pop --- gave up diet pop -- I think the longest was 80 days or so. It's always a struggle.
Well --- Sunday I got a 2 liter bottle of diet pop. I started to get 2 20oz bottles but they were $2.50 for both. I got generic and it was like 75 cents.
I came home and had about 3 glasses of the diet pop. I took my evening medications with the pop and poured the rest down the drain. I knew when I bought it was for the evening whether I drank it all last night or not -- it was going.
I got up Monday and decided to "not" have any that morning. By afternoon I was pretty pleased with my progress. Evening --- "kind of" wanted one but decided to see how it would go.
Today -- Day 2 --- going ok. Got a little stressed at work in the evening and guess what I WANTED a DIET POP --- but decided I'd wait it out.
I got home after almost another 12 hour day -- fixed me a salad and a bottle of water. I think it missed the diet pop for a little bit.
But I haven't sworn off diet pop for any length of time. I'm just "choosing" not to have it "right" now. There may be a day that I allow it BUT --- I feel like I need to discuss it with someone -- the reason I "feel I need it".
So tomorrow I will start day 3 without diet pop.
I truly believe and have said before I believe it has a lot to do with cravings, especially of snack type foods and overeating for me in general.
I also believe just for today --- I'm ready to give it up -- my goals was by the end of January -- didn't happen -- moved the goal to by the end of February so I think I mentally just prepared.
February has been a good month --- 2014 seems to be a good start on a healthier ME!
Thanks to all who follow me --- message me ---- send me goodies ---- comment on blogs and pages ---
