50 Days And Counting

Today is 50 days and counting, without a single Coca Cola. I am the biggest Coke fan, and after a mild case of the flu, and not having a Coke, I started my journey One Day At A Time.

Around day 23, I set a goal for myself,  100 days without a Coke, and today... I'm halfway there! Earlier this week, I told my family day 101, I'm having at least a half cup of Coke. Mr. Husband doesn't see the point, but for me it's more of a reward.

In the first few weeks, I had headaches and had difficulty remembering things. I was in class lecturing, and was trying to think of a particular word, then an incident. One of my students said, "It's the lack of Coke." And they all thought it was funny. I have to admit it was.

I thought I'd drop about 10 pounds. Maybe because Mr. Husband used to say so when I'd say I needed to lose that much. The weight loss hasn't been going as well as expected. I'm on again, and off again, and way off since Easter. Monday... it's back on.

No matter what... mid May, I'm walking/jogging (mostly walking) a 5K!

Good for you! If I had to give up Diet Dr. Pepper, I think I'd die!

I'm training for a 5k or a 10k - not sure...My goal is the 10k, but I don't know if I'll be ready for it by race day. (June 2) I've actually GAINED weight since serious running/training/lifting weights, but my clothes aren't any tighter, so I won't freak out. Yet. :)

No doubt, you'll make your goal. I use to be a Dr. Pepper addict and now I only drink tea and water, and I don't miss the Pepper at all. As we grow older, our body begins to tell us what we need and not what we want. Have a great weekend!

50 days!!! That is wonderful. I never make it past two or three days because of the headaches and irritability. I'm so proud of you. I know i need to end my love affair with Coke. I may try it too.
