going strong!!! Woo Hoo!!!! I realized that it's been awhile since I posted an update. I'm not very good at blogging. As of today, it has been 60 days going strong with no Diet Dr. Pepper and walking the dogs every day.

I haven't given up soda, just Diet Dr. Pepper. I still have diet root beer from time to time. Most of what I drink is water, diet green tea, and light V-Fusion juice. I thought I would have a hard time giving up Diet Dr. Pepper, but it hasn't been as hard as I thought it would be. I still have my moments from time to time when I would give anything to have an ice cold can of Diet Dr. Pepper, but I know it's too soon for me to attempt just one. Plus, of course, I am still wanting to get my cruise from my son, which will be next year some time. My main goal for giving up Diet Dr. Pepper was to get rid of the caffeine. So, when I do have a soda, I choose one with no caffeine.

As for the dog walking, we are really enjoying our walks every day. The dogs get so excited to go walking. It's hard to get them back in the house. It's so cute. As soon as we get back in sight of our house, the dogs slow way done. We started out just walking to the end of the road and back. Now, we go around the block. Today we actually did our walk when it was sprinkling out. Luckily, it didn't start pouring down rain. We've had a couple of those days this week with all the gloomy weather we've been having.

Now that the temps are getting colder, my breathing is a little strained from the asthma. I think it has a lot to do with the wind and people burning wood in their fireplaces. We may have to find a different route to walk, because of the fireplaces on the next street over. I refuse to give up my walking though. I know it is really helping me a lot.

I'll try to update more often. I usually don't have much to blog about. I lead a very boring life. lol Thank you all for viewing and commenting on my blog. Take care!!
