A little over a week ago, I blogged about how it was time for a serious lifestyle change. The past week hasn’t been perfect (for example: last nights Nutella stuffed strawberries and too much biscotti) but it has been a HUGE improvement over how I’ve been living. I mean… if I’m going to stuff something with Nutella, aren’t strawberries a better choice than chocolate chip cookies?
|So deliciously addictive… and not at all healthy!|
|Slightly better, but still not healthy.|
The biggest change: I’ve been soda free for a week! That’s HUGE for me. January 1, 2007 I gave up soda for my New Years Resolution. I was soda free until October 2009. I quit it cold turkey back then, and I’ve spent the past few months trying to wean myself off of it. Well, I finally made myself realize that weaning myself off wasn’t working and I quit cold turkey again. For the most part I haven’t missed it at all. Today I do have a massive headache, but nothing a few Aleve won’t fix (hopefully). Besides giving up soft drinks, I’ve been drinking water like there’s not going to be any water tomorrow. I drink about three 32 ounce bottles of the stuff a day. WITHOUT adding any flavorings to it. And that is really big for me since I don’t care for water.
