I fell off the wagon (quitting sodas)
So last week I announced my intention to quit drinking Fizzy drinks / sodas ... I started off ok but the cravings really got to me.. I decided to try alternate days off soda.. but found I kept reaching for sweet things in their place ..
First off I said ok I don’t mind being less strict on my low carb eating if ultimately I can give up sodas completely. I know how to draw the line on eating crap...
Turns out I’m not as strong as I thought I was... the little bits of sweets and treats added up and by Monday I was overindulging in both soda and bad food.
Now I could blame the hot weather
I could blame it on being in a poor mood post Ldr visit..
But the truth is these are no excuses. Food is not a reward or an anti depressant. It won’t fix a heatwave or a blizzard.
You eat or drink because you want to eat or drink.
So after giving myself a good kick up the arse and a pep talk. We’re starting fresh. Today. Yes Wednesday is as good as any day to start a new leaf. No need to wait for Monday, new year or a new month. Just start.
To help get back on track I’ve made my “Do not eat list”,
Above are the foods I’ve struggled with 😅 I can honestly say eating them has made my stomach so sick and physically I’ve just felt drained.. it just goes to show it’s not worth it!
So this morning I got up with the plan of going cold turkey fr fr. And Day 1 has been all good ..
4L of water drank and 1 can of sparkling stevia pineapple flavour water 😋
