I'm making a declaration here. I am going cold turkey on drinking diet Coke and having desserts until the end of the month. There, I said it and am now accountable to all of you. Actually, I started this on Sunday and am doing o.k. so far. Diet Coke is my "comfort" drink. I think I am more emotionally addicted to it than physically addicted. I do not drink coffee, or iced tea (sometimes I drink hot herbal tea when it's cold) so diet Coke is my go-to drink. I've been getting the kind that has Splenda (not aspartame) in it since I saw it in the store. But I think there are probably some other things in the drink that might not be so good for me. It won't be too hard to give it up for a while because I've done it before and go in cycles of on again, off again.
Giving up the desserts is going to be a million times harder, especially where chocolate is concerned. I do have a sweet tooth. We'll see how long I make it with this one.
Why am I doing this? To see if I can. To become a little more healthy for a little while. To exercise some will power of which I don't seem to have a lot. I'll let you know how I do.
