Diet Coke: You Hold No Power Over Me Now!
Ha ha ha! I can laugh at that sign now! Why? Because today is Day 7 of #DumpDietCoke! I’ve had a few moments (less than 5) where I had to dig into my Emergency Diet Coke. Overall, however, #DumpDietCoke is going very well! I’ve experienced a bit more fatigue and I miss Diet Coke when I eat the foods I’d always have Diet Coke with (Tex-Mex, breakfast tacos). Those are just behavioral expectations developed over many years, and it will take some time to break away from that.
I must confess that I’ve been allowing wine and margaritas to replace a Diet Coke during some evenings this week. But let’s face it, drinking wine and margaritas would have taken place regardless of me dumping of Diet Coke. Now, they just play a … uh, let’s call it, medicinal role … in helping ease any caffeine withdrawal headaches.
And hey, here’s another bonus of quitting Diet Coke! I always hated going to a restaurant when they had only Pepsi products and no Diet Coke. Now that I don’t drink Diet Coke – or any soda for that matter – it’s no problem!
File This Under What The Heck???
I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this – it’s actually real. If I had seen a photo, I would have told you that someone was really creative with Photoshop. A friend told me that he tried them, and they tasted like “salty maple syrup.” Thanks, but I think I’ll pass.
That’s the way it is at my house – and I bet that’s the way it is for you, too, if you’re a runner!
Thanks for reading!
