I feel very content with my progress. I go days without having a soda, and I rarely even think about one. I don’t get the cravings I usually get. Every great once in a while, I do indulge, but I very rarely do, and I usually don’t even finish it. I feel better, my skin looks great from all of the water I am drinking, and I’m pretty damn proud of myself. I was hoping that the reduction in calories would help me lose a pound or two, but unfortunately, I haven’t seen any improvement in that arena, but hey, you can’t win ‘em all…

So, I am trading out my usual Pepsis for Iced Tea… It is a slow process, but it seems to be working. I still have one or two at home, but I have made a promise to myself not to order sodas at restaurants. I have been opting for tea, water with lemon, or smoothies (when available). I feel better knowing that I am doing something good for myself. Little by little, I hope to make the change permanant.
I am failing miserably at this. I work over 60 hours a week, and I find myself dragging my ass without the caffiene and sugar. When I don’t get it in my system, I am grouchy at home, and simply cannot bring myself to go to the gym… maybe it is better if I drink it, so long as it gives me the energy to burn it off and stops me from being grouchy to my family.
My family was always on the go when I was a kid. My father was a long-haul truck driver and a mechanic in the off season. It was just him and me from the time I was 12, and I adopted his HORRIBLE eating habits. Fast food, microwaved dinners, and TONS OF SODA. I’ve kicked most of the garbage out, but soda is still a major issue for me. I had 5 pepsis yesterday alone. I have somehow managed to maintain a normal weight, but still, it is starting to tax my health, and I can feel it. I can’t wake up without the caffeine and sugar rush, and I have weird cravings for it at innopportune times. I hate it. And I want to stop it.
