Day 5 of Dog Walking & Day 4 of No DDP

Friday, September 21, 2012

Today we had to walk in the afternoon again. I was too busy with work. It was 86 degrees when we walked. I was a little concerned, but it was fine. The dogs had another great time and didn't want to go in the house right away. So, we did the same route as yesterday. Tomorrow will probably be an early evening walk. My son has to work until 4 p.m. and then go to a surprise birthday party when he gets off. I'm going to try to get him to go for our walk after work, but somehow I don't think it's going to happen. We will definitely have our walk no matter what time it is.

So, I made it to Day 4 of no Diet Dr. Pepper. The headaches aren't as extreme as they were. Just a slight headache today. Tonight I'm trying a Clear American Wild Cherry water that my son got me. It's okay, but it's not as good as Diet Dr. Pepper. I miss it, but I am holding strong. I am determined to get through this. Tomorrow when I go grocery shopping, I'm going to look for something else. I may try the Club Soda with a splash of fruit juice. It's funny, because when I was growing up, we never drank soda. We had Kool Aide on weekends and sometimes my mom would mix a little Club Soda with it. I feel like I'm going back in time. lol

    Way to go, Lainie, on kicking the deadly soda pop habit! *hugs* I used to be a Coke junkie, so I know how hard it can be. The good news is that once it is out of your system you will never miss it!

    Experiment with adding lemon or lime juice to your water. I love iced tea with lemon~ my favorite drink. Keep up the good work~ you are looking great, dear heart! *hugs* BB~ emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Keep up the good work, Lainie!

    I grew up on Kool-Aid, too! Oh...and the Southern perennial, sweet tea. We never had soda as kids. And my weight problems didn't start until well into adulthood when I had switched over to diet figure....

    Good luck staying off the stuff. You've got a streak going, and I know you can build on it!
