First of all, I have a confession and no it is not about the fact that slept in until 11 today or that I accidentally told Billy that my new shoes were cheaper than they actually were.
Back in the college days I drank nearly 80 ounces of diet coke a day.
I quit. 2 years ago. Cold turkey.
Yesterday, while we were laying out by the pool and the sister was on the phone, I did something stupid.
I got on the internet and read about the latest Boston news, weather, winner predictions….ya know basically my obsessed self about Boston came out again.
It made me sad (I know that is silly because I was on vacation with my bestie and don’t worry it only lasted for 30 minutes) and I did something stupid.
I went inside to the vending machine and thought that a pepsi would kiss me better and tell me everything was going to be alright.
I am not saying that you should NEVER drink soda but for me I just shouldn’t. I am such an all or nothing person and I am not the type of person that would just enjoy a cold coke every other day but rather I would go into 7-11 many times a day (with different disguises of course) and fill up my Big Gulp.
I am sure you may have noticed my addictive personality in previous posts when it comes to running, blogging, tv shows, skittles, hot chocolate and broccoli.
I know that soda will not help in the area of speediness and there are a lot of negative health affects (think bone health) and so I just need to refrain.
So, why in the world am I telling you all of this?
Because I need your help to keep me accountable to continue my abstinence from soda:) If I drink one I know I will have to put it on the blog and therefore I will have to send all of you blogging bff’s a dollar and then I will never have money to buy one again, or pay rent for that matter. Good plan right?
The more and more I read about Kara the more I love her, seriously….read her book.
Did you know she had a FEMORAL STRESS FRACTURE?!?! She was recovering from a knee surgery and overdid it on the ELLIPTICAL and that is how she got it!!!!
But guess what…….she got through it, stronger and faster than ever and she is going to WIN BOSTON TOMORROW (I really will cry if she doesn’t, that is how obsessed I am with her).
While talking about her struggles with emotional eating during her injury (she gained 30 lbs in 6 months) she learned that, “I know that I have the power to always remain the master of my body.”
This hit me strong. No matter what stressful event we are going through we have the power to choose another way to cope with our situation that doesn’t involve diet pepsi or a 5 lb bag of M&M’s from Costco.
Are you an all or nothing type of person?
-Yep, but I am trying to work on that big time!
What are your thoughts on soda or diet soda? What do they call it where you live….soda, pop, coke?
-Pop (but I usually call it soda)
Are you routing for Kara tomorrow?
