Day 10 of Dog Walking & Day 9 of No Diet Dr. Pepper

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

I will be so glad when this week is over. I have been so stressed this week. Even with all the stress, I have still kept my streaks going. I can't believe I have gone 9 days without Diet Dr. Pepper. This is definitely the longest I've gone. I drink 12 cups of plain water every day, which was what I have done previously. Now, I also drink a cup of V-Fusion and a bottle of Clear American flavored water. I feel this may be too much liquid. Of course, I used to drink the 12 cups of water and 3 to 4 cans of soda. I need to work on it and find what works best for me. I do have fluid retention problems and it's even more so this week.

My son didn't want to go for a walk with the dogs today. I had to guilt trip him. So we went for our walk at about 7:15 p.m. It was beautiful out. I like walking with the dogs after the sun goes down. I just worry about my dogs when we walk in the heat of the day. Bowinkle is 13 years old and Benny is 7 years old or they will be in November. Plus, they are indoor dogs. I want to be careful when it's hot. Although they seem very happy when they are out there.

Thank you for all your support and encouragement. As I've said before, it really means a lot to me.

    Hi Lainie,

    You are doing awesome. I know how hard it must be on you to give up your Diet Doctor Pepper. I am that way with Coke Zero, but don't drink as much of it as you did the Doctor Pepper. I am proud of you for guilt tripping Rocky into going for a walk with you and the dogs. emoticon

    Great job on the no diet Dr. Pepper!!!

    Try adding a little bit of fresh squeezed lemon to you water. Lemon is a natural diuretic and this may help with some of the water retention.

    I hope your stress is released soon.
