Almost 2 weeks ago, I had the bright idea to do the water challenge. You know, drink the proper amount of water per day. 8-10 glasses. Jaos, the loving husband he is, said he would do it along with me. I am not good with follow through when I go things alone, as you may know. The rules are, we are allowed 1 caffeinated beverage in the morning, because we are both caff junkies. Then, its all water the rest of the day.
Its killing me… I swear to you, its eating away at my soul. I was in target last night, at the check out, and I saw an ice cold coca-cola in the case. My favorite drink, ahhh icy Coke. I almost picked it up. Jaos was not with me, he would never know. Then, the guilt set in. He had given up Dew, he adores Dew. For the first couple years we were together, that is all he drank, Dew, all day. I opted for the Vitamin Water instead. And it was tasty. As tasty as flavored water can be, I guess. It was better than I had expected. But, it is in no way, shape or form, an ice cold Coke.
I sit here drinking my water. I know its good for me. I know I’m cutting back on a lot of worthless calories by doing away with the soda. Buuut, I miss them so. More than I thought I would. I wonder if I will get used to the water, and stop thinking mouth watering, dirty, lusty thoughts about Coke. Only time will tell.
Have you given up anything recently that you lust after??
