Six Week Plan: Day 24

Ok, so is anyone getting annoyed at my calorie counting blog yet????
I think I am.
So I'm not going to do it anymore.

I'm still continuing on my Six Week Plan, but does anyone really care what I am actually eating all day long? Probably not.

I still want the accountability, so I will be checking in regularly to let you know how things are going.
I still will be weighing in on Mondays.
I will still be sticking to my exercise schedule.
I will still share my successes and confessions.

If anyone is still actually reading this blog...thanks for being such a trooper.

For today, I actually have a huge success to share. After days and nights of helping my grandparents move, I have been absolutely spent at the end of each day. Tonight, I was home alone in the house, exhausted, still a bit stressed from the day's work, and I wanted a soda REALLY BADLY. I even walked out to the garage to get a Mt. Dew out of the fridge. I thought, "Oh it doesn't even matter. Nobody cares. I don't even really care that much." I walked all the way out there then thought, "If I drink this, I'm going to have to confess it on my blog." (Lol) And then I thought, "I don't have to blog about it. I could just drink it and not tell anyone." And then I thought, "No, I can't do that. That defeats the whole purpose." Then I walked back into the kitchen and remember a non-caffeinated soda we have in the kitchen fridge. "This one doesn't have caffeine in it. It doesn't even count. I just want something with a little fizz." I picked it up, unscrewed the lid, and then screwed it back on and put it back in the fridge. I grabbed a glass out of the cupboard and filled it up with ice water. I drank the whole glass without one breath. I filled it up again and kept drinking. I kept drinking water until I didn't want soda anymore.

I'm telling you, I feel like an addict.
But I held strong.
I didn't do it.
I didn't drink on sip, though everything in me just wanted to.

I LOVE reading your daily appetite. I do understand, however, feeling like no one cares. GOOD JOB!!! I had a similar experience, except it involved Taco Time, a burrito and broccoli!!! All it takes is a little, or a lot, of ice water.

Way to not drink the soda!! That's very impressive, you inspire me to resist chocolate....which to me seems as necessary as your soda does. Anyways, I'll try to do better because you're doing such an amazing job!

I too enjoy reading this blog. It's motivating! Yesterday I resisted soda as well and wanted it really bad and thought of you!
