Letting go...slowly

It's been one week. I've had 20-24 ounces of Dr. Pepper everyday. That's about 1/2 (or some days a 1/3!) of what my typical consumption was.

And guess what...


It's going to be a process, but I'm letting the 23 flavors go...all 23 wonderful flavors.

I've definitely felt sluggish most of the week but I've also been pretty slammed at work and home. Hoping now that I'm through that crazy week, my body will have an easier time adjusting to the reduced amounts of caffeine.

I will be watching the scales closely this month (like I don't every month?) as I am definitely consuming fewer calories. I'm also very interested to see how this affects my running. I should be better hydrated and not all sugared up. As you can tell, I have have high expectations for this life change.

I can do this. Seriously.


  1. so your water challenge last year inspired me to "up" my winter h2o drinking last year, and that led me to working toward reducing and then giving up diet soda. I cut back at first, I then added Perrie water. Yes, it's gross at first. I recommend NOT going back and forth between soda and Perrie because the Perrie will NEVER be good, doing it that way. I switched, and when I craved a soda, I opted for Perrie. At first, kind of yucky, but now, it truly satisfies my craving for the bubbles. I add a slice of lemon. Good Luck!

  2. You can do it!!!! That's a fantastic start. I've found that adding Nuun to my water helps with the sweet drink cravings for me (and has the added electrolyte bonus). Good luck.
