I’m still winning the soda battle but it hasn’t really translated into any weight loss yet and that’s OK! It takes time and dedication and I know sooner or later I’ll start to see a change in that area as well. I wrote this post earlier in the week but after weighing myself I found out I’ve lost 2 pounds! I’m sure it’s a mix of Wii Fit, Water and not eating crap at night. Go me!
As far as my current goal, at work I’ve only been drinking water and Tazo Green Tea (Yay Keurig!). I’ve been using Diet Snapple Singles as well to help break up the boredom of water. I know some people can drink whatever every day and be 100% happy, I’m not one of those people. I will say that on Sunday I drank nothing but water. It wasn’t hard and it wasn’t something I even thought about. When I opened the fridge I grabbed the 1/2 gallon water jug and didn’t put it back until I was finished. Obviously I didn’t chug it but drank throughout the day. I will say the hardest part is when you’re out for a meal. I did go out Saturday with a friend for lunch and instead of water or regular soda I went with diet. At other times I’ve had unsweetened ice tea which isn’t all that awesome but it’s not horrible either. The good news is, I walked 2.2 miles on Saturday! I attended an event downtown and my friend and I walked over from a local animal shelter where she volunteers. I think my legs almost froze off but we survived.
I’m surprised I haven’t had any headaches from the lack of caffeine but honestly, and this is sad, I don’t think caffeine has any affect on me anymore. It doesn’t give me energy, it doesn’t make me jittery, it doesn’t do anything really. Granted, I’m sure I’m getting smaller doses from the tea but even that I’m not drinking every day. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining at all! Just making an observation!
I hope everyone else is going great with their goals! I’ve been trying to make my rounds and comment on everyone. If I’ve missed you let me know! I love reading new blogs since I’m just getting back into the whole blogging thing. Plus it’s interesting to see all the different goals and plans everyone has.
