My New Coke Challenge...

Okay, so those that know me, know I LOVE Coke! I will not even consider drinking the competition. I even managed to get Roger hooked on it! When we met he was a total Pepsi guy! But he was perfect in so many other ways that I looked past it! After frequenting so many restaurants that only served Coke while we were dating (coincidence? hmmm...), he realized Coke WAS better than Pepsi!! All those years he wasted....sad. But anyway, I digress. I have known for some time that I need to cut back on my caffeine intake, but I have had a hard time doing it. With blood pressure and weight issues now demanding some serious life changes, I've decided to take the plunge and try and go cold turkey! No Coke for lunch. No trip through the McDrive thru for a quick, pick-me-up. None. Nada. Zilch. Just water. Lots of water. I realized today that a friend was at the same place in her life, so I threw down the gauntlet and the challenge is on. We are both trying to get healthier, so we'll commiserate together! Wanna join us?! The more the merrier!

What? No chocolate either?

Oh my gosh... I feel faint! ;)

See... I can't even go one day without messing up. We won't even discuss in detail the 2 Sunkist Lemonade's I had yesterday before I read the side of the can and noticed that they, too, have caffeine in them.

I guess this challenge is going to be much harder than I had anitcipated!

Here's to being healthy... Grrrr.... :(

Good luck, Girl!

Let me just say Day 2 is not as easy as Day 1 was! This glass of water is just not hitting the spot. But it will accompany my Alieve just fine to help minimize the headache I have! LOL! ;) Hang in there!
