Days 3, 4 and 5

(Over the weekend and yesterday)

The weekend wasn't too bad. Lee and I were without children, and whenever I'm only responsible for myself I have an easier time practicing restraint. Even though Lee got himself a fountain drink from the gas station (I usually get one too!), I limited my caffeine intake to only a couple of swigs to help wash food down. Aside from feeling lazy and energy-less most of the weekend, it wasn't too bad.

Monday was pretty good too. I sipped a Fresca for most of the day, and just drank water with lunch. You have to understand that I am not a Water Person. Yuck! It has no flavor and usually just makes me feel water-logged and gross. So choosing water is kind of a big deal for me. Monday was my first caffeine-free day, and that's a pretty good milestone!

p.s. I think Water People usually have a holier-than-thou attitude, which is why I like to give Them the respect They're due.

Way to go!! I myself am trying to rid myself of habits I have---with food. Mine is trying to stay away from sugar...I keep telling myself, "I am the one that stuffs my own face...no one else does that for me, so I can do this!!" :) I miss you buddy, and have loved reading your blog :)

Buddy! I think I'm not invited to view your blog. Which is weird, because I'm pretty sure I've read it before. Hmm. In any case, invite me!! :)

I must say, I am a water person myself and I am more healthy than those soda pop drinkers. j/k Anyway I have found that water seems to do the same to me. Though its nice sometimes, I do feel waterlogged other times. Solution? PowerAid. I know what you're thinking, "poorly flavored water". But it seems to feel better than just water. Also, I'll down a diet sobe here and there (I think they're called Sobe Lean). Anyway, keep up the good work. You'll find your energy come back soon.
