I don't buy Coke for my home because I would just keep drinking it and drinking it. I usually have a coke at work though.. I also enjoy coke when I go out to eat. Well I am happy to say that I haven't had a Coke since the week before Christmas. I've been a very good water girl. Now I know why I shouldn't drink soda. I have seen the articles about the evils of soda. But it doesn't change the fact that I really love Coke.
I've given up Coke before. I have given it up hoping to lose some weight. Never works for me. I always end up thinking if I am not losing weight than I might as well just drink soda again. So I have one Coke which then leads to a Coke or more a day.
I know that when I have my Coke at work I really don't drink much water. Now I have been having 4 large glasses of water during the day. When I drink a Coke that is usually it for me for the workday. It also should help me be a better runner too. That's what I am going to keep telling myself. We will see how long this lasts. So far I have been enjoying my water and haven't caved to a Coke. I almost did today. It was a crazy day with a 2nd grade classroom moving into the library because of the cold temperatures outside and I had classes all day long. A recipe for a disaster of a day and an easy "I need a Coke fix" excuse. But I didn't have the coke, I had water.
No running for me tonight..It was just way to cold, but no Coke either, so it is a winning night!
