Good to hear!

Still going. You would think the longer we go the easier it would be. For me, it's getting more and more tempting. I think it is more psychological than anything. LOL

I have to admit that I have been tempted this week. I have gone to the snack area and just stood in front of the soda vending machines....a diet coke has been the siren call this week...I'm resisting.

McDonald's tried to ruin my streak Saturday night!
I went through the drive through and ordered a meal since I had been at B&N all day doing homework (long story but construction workers working on my building trashed the cable and internet connection box for my building...no internet, no TV...nothing!). Ordered an unsweetened iced tea with the meal. I pop a straw in the cup on the way out of the lot and take a drink...it is Dr. Pepper! I flipped around and back I went and went in and handed it to them and got another drink...iced tea, unsweetened!
So, I'm still on track as long as the one drink doesn't count. Considering I wasn't expecting it, it was almost spewed all over my windshield! LOL

I sometimes think unsweetened iced tea is an acquired taste. LOL
If it tasted like water it probably wasn't made strong enough (one of my grandmothers made weak tea!).

I know that Monster Java drinks aren't "soda" but they might as well be the full blown thing (they don't come in diet!). They aren't bubbly but they are tasty and oh, so bad! It was a struggle this morning. I stopped to get water to take to work and I am sleepy (didn't sleep last night). The water here in Lubbock is full of minerals to the point if you let it evaporate the container has a crust, not just a discoloration, a CRUST, left in it. I buy most of my tea from a place called Teavana and the horrible taste of the water here masks some of the more subtle flavors in the teas I have...so, do the thing that isn't good for the environment (but is good for my taste buds and kidneys, high rate of kidney stones here) and I buy bottled water (and check where it is coming from because some of it comes from the Lubbock municipal water supply! LOL). I just stood there in front of the cooler with the Monster Java in it...didn't look at the sodas but just gazed on the sugary drink with a huge boost (and let down) then went a couple of coolers down and got a chocolate milk. Satisfied the sweet tooth (too much) but not the kick in the pants I wanted. LOL

I've been really jonesing for a diet coke but have resisted the temptation.
Does a Monster Java drink count? That was the other one I've been wanting pretty bad and have been walking away from. LOL

I am drinking a lot of Perrier to get my bubbles. LOL
Mostly I am drinking hot tea (I have a huge variety from Teavana so I don't get bored with them).

You are doing great, Tema! It takes a while to break the habit and the taste for the soda but I think it is harder to keep from falling back into the routine of drinking them again...at least for me.

No soda for me either. It was hard because I was traveling this weekend and I tend to drink caffeinated drinks that are bubbly as opposed to just coffee when I'm on the road!

Great job, Tema!

I was good for the first day and then the weekend hits and i find myself drinking them. This is much harder than I thought.

You should play my sister! She kicks my butt!
I put to use the sometimes obscure vocabulary I have built over the last 52 years. LOL
Just wait until I get the letters and the board to throw out my hometown (it is also a mineral!). I get questioned on that one now and again.
I enjoy the Words and Lexulous games since I can play them on my phone. I'm trying to break the Farmville addiction. I have not looked at my farms in about a week and a half.
Then again, I'm almost through with my homework for the week and picked up the WoW expansion and a time card this week....I can see what I'll be doing this weekend, maybe!

It is good for me too, Tema. It is helping me keep focused on what I NEED to be doing. After regaining around 30 lbs since last fall when I found out my girlfriend was moving to Germany....well, it's time to get back to it and focus, track (I'm using WW to track) and be mindful of what I'm doing.

I know that right now it helps me a lot being so busy here at work. I'm in the fab much of the day and I just don't bring any money to put into the machines. I have some gatorade in my office and various teas I can brew so right now I'm working to stick to those.

Still going strong with the no soda.
Keep it up, Tema! I know how hard it is for people who tend to drink a good bit of soda not to drink any. My girlfriend's drink of choice is Dr. Pepper and she gets cranky if she doesn't have at least one a day! LOL

Congratulations, Tema. Stay strong.
I'm headed to the store so I need to avoid the drinks isle, I've got plenty of Sobe lifewater and Gatorade (just wish the Gatorade flavors I like were in the G2 line! oh, well....I keep them at a minimum and use them when I need to be re-hydrated when the electrolytes get unbalanced).

I'll play along, but 3rd shift is a beast without my caffiene. One can of Amp on the way to work tonight and I'll try this until the next 20th.
