On a whim a few days before new years, I sent this tweet:
And so I did. As of midnight January 1st, 2011, I pledged to not drink coke in any form for a year.
And today, it's been 100 days since I've had any.
I'm proud of me. I'm pleased to be able to say "i told you so" to a number of people who thought I couldn't do it ;)
But I must be honest.
It's been really hard.
I think it's been more difficult to fight the habit of drinking coke and the immediate mood lifter (for a little while) it would give me, than actually missing the taste.
Some things really make me want one.
Fueling the car
When the kids stress me out
Music practice on Thursdays
When I'm bored
When I'm hungry
While I'm finding it easier to push through those cravings, they don't seem to be going away very much.
I don't think I've lost weight.
I don't think my skin is any better.
I'm not sleeping any different.
Why am I doing this again? :D
But, I will see it through. Maybe at the end of the year I'll be able to see a little more clearly.
265 days to go.
