I'm so proud of myself. For the last 2 days, I haven't had any caffeine during the day or on my drive to work/home. This really big for me.
I started to feel sick from allergies, or a cold, hard to tell the difference sometimes, Monday afternoon. And since then, I've had no desire to want a Dr Pepper. Each time I had the chance for one, I realized it didn't sound good in least. And instead of giving into habit, I decided to go w/what my body said it didn't really want/need and what the heck, save 200+ calories!
Today has been harder. I think it's b/c I'm drinking water w/a bunch of ice... which doesn't help w/soothing my throat or stomach. I'm going to finish up this glass and then get some luke warm water next to see how that goes.
I keep thinking - how awesome would it for me to get through this illness/allergies and then be free from this habit too all the while not noticing the caffeine withdrawal b/c I already feel cruddy.
All in all, I'm actually glad to not feel well b/c I don't WANT a Dr Pepper.
