So Long, So Wrong

So it's done. I have had my last soda for the foreseeable future. There was bacon present at my last hurrah. That should clue you in that this particular can of Diet DP was consumed at breakfast. That's right, breakfast. It's a good thing I'm not a drinker because I would clearly be the type to say "it's five o'clock somewhere!" I have given up soda twice, once when I was marathon training and once just to see if I could. Uh, apparently I can't. Although that time I lasted six whole weeks, including four days in Utah for my brother's wedding which typically means my mother starting an intravenous Dr. Pepper drip the moment I step off the plane.

I feel better, look better and run better when I don't drink the dark tasty beverages. So no matter how many caffeine headaches I get, no matter how seductively the fountain vanilla coke at Rubio's beckons, no matter how much I crave the bubbles and the sugar and the sweetness, I am serious about this.

Help me.

You can do it! I love the Diet Dr. Pepper too. And Diet Coke with Lime. The longest I've been off soda is 2 weeks and then I let myself have one, and then another week, and have a Coke, and then another week, and so on. I kept the one soda a week thing up for about 2 months.

I'm a total junkie now that I'm working the 60 hour weeks. I'm not even trying to give it up.

I'm a complete junkie too. I keep telling myself I'm going to give it up after this semester ends. We'll see.
