Evil, evil soda
Tuesday, June 10, 2014
Just a quick blog before I head out to walk.
My thighs are killing me! Whew, there I said it. Last night it took a very long time for me to climb up the stairs to go to bed. Obviously I haven't used those muscles as much as I thought I had. This running and swimming and is kicking my butt (literally). But it feels good and should really help me drop more weight. Haven't weighed-in lately and I want to hold out a bit longer before stepping on the scale.
And the soda battle? I cannot believe how hard giving up soda is. I want soda. When it is hot (or just I'm hot) I want soda. A nice, cold can of something to chug down. I've been drinking iced tea like it's the only liquid on earth. Made 2 pots yesterday, plus the one I already had cooling in the frig. I had a small amount of Sprite on Sunday that was mixed in with punch at a couple of grad parties. One party even had whole cans available but I didn't have any, just the punch. I'm not a big fan of, what tasted like, Hawaiian Punch so just one glass was enough. But if it had been plain Sprite instead of that mix I'm not sure what I would have done. I've even been filling one of my water bottles with tea and that has helped a lot. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
