But this week, I've been a superstar. I've filled the little fridge at my desk with bottles and drink them all day. I took some lemons (this guy upstairs brings them in all the time from a tree in his yard) and cut them up to put in the bottles... it took a little getting used to cause I do like my water plain, but it's ok. It's an acquired taste and I know there are benefits to it.
If anyone ever doubted water's benefits, let me tell you -- I feel less lethargic, my scalp is less dry, my skin is less dry, I sweat less (is this realted? No idea.), I'm thirsty MORE... all good things.
Also HUGE in my life was soda but that's cut back. One a day and that's it. And only Diet. I have one Diet Dr. Pepper from the office soda machine every day (and sometimes I even skip a day). Other than that, water or iced tea.
Work has been SO consuming this week and I've not been able to make it to Lindora every day. That frustrates me. Especially right now when I seem to be at a plateau. With so little time left in the program, I want to get as much out of it as I can (plus I've got a 6-day vacation coming up). And for the more curious folk, I'm down 36.5 pounds since I began this journey. I've still a long way to go but that's a gratifying number.
And FYI, totally skipped the Diet Dr. Pepper today cause there's a Diet Pepsi in my future at the restaurant I'm having dinner at and as my friends know, it's my FAVORITE.
