Starting my days WITHOUT caffeine!
Today has been the 2nd day without my morning Dr Pepper, and it has been a rough 2 days. Even after breakfast, I still feel myself wanting to go back to bed. Taking cold showers didn't help, it just made me feel more clean. LOL
So why exactly did I make the decision to stop drinking that deliciousness known as soda? The last time I went a significant time without soda was a month, especially after being released from the hospital back in January of a staph infection. For some reason, they wouldn't let me have soda for all 5 days, so all I drank were unsweet tea, milk with breakfast, and tons of ice water. After coming home, I didn't have soda because I feared it would react with my antibiotics so I stayed off soda for about a month. But after I could go back to my normal diet, I tried soda and I fell off the bandwagon.
But lately, I started thinking about the weight I actually lost when I wasn't drinking soda. I had a lot more energy, without the sluggish feeling. And since I want to get back into the shape I was and the energy I had, I decided that I was no longer going to drink sodas... Even if the temptation seems too great at time. I almost had one with dinner but saw tea in the fridge and decided to go with tea.
Now if only I could break my love of tea. I don't think I ever will. LOL I mean, c'mon, I live in Texas. We love our tea sweet!
What is the hardest thing you've had to give up?
