Promise it is hard to keep my mind focused. I made it to walk. I managed to make myself 2 eggs, and plum to eat. Still … brain is wobbly.
So how am I doing in the “Say No to Diet Coke” campaign? I’m still holding fast.
Several folks seem shocked that I am having so much trouble when they find out I did not go cold turkey on caffeine–just Diet Coke. For the record–NO one was more SHOCKED than ME! I did NOT expect to have much of a problem kicking this. I had cut back for two weeks prior.
My list of cut outs–What I am not eating for one month:
- Sugar other than in the form of fruit–again nothing new here.
- White Flour products (barely ever do).
- White potatoes and corn–layin’ low on common starchy veggies (rarely consume).
- Eating pasta in any form (rarely consume).
- No processed food–not new either.
- Laying off dairy (always limit this–cuz I LOVE it too much).
Why cut out the foods? Its simple, I am trying to see what foods are aggravating my tummy. This way I can add them back in one at a time and see which ones aggravate the problems in my body.
As for my beloved Diet Cokes, they however are not going to be a part of my life ever again. That has been the plan from the beginning–but after the way my body has reacted to their absence–Girl friend has a NEW Purpose! These few days have afflicted me and strangled my productivity, seriously compelling me to make a STRONG proclamation about my NEVER RETURNING to Diet Coke.
This experience has been NUTS!
Waiting for the day when I feel my energy return. I got 3 and almost 1/2 miles of my walk/run in. I couldn’t run as much as I normally do. I cut the trail short from the normal 3.87 because I was concerned that I would not be able to pack of my junk and get out of here to drive to the beach. (I know my life is so horrible.) Maybe while I am working down there my energy will come back. God knows I hope so. We will be in a one bedroom apartment with our son, daughter-in-law, and grandson–I need to be in a good mood. That is a SMALL space. hahahahahaha
