Feeling sorry for myself.
I'm Celeste, a magazine editor living in Phoenix.
Get ready for a lot of fitness, a lot of sass and a lot of froyo.
Week 3 Challenge: Only drink water.
Eff me. I have been putting this update off.
I failed. Big time. Like … gave up.
I don’t know what the deal is. When did I start drinking so much diet soda? It grosses me out and makes me feel awful.
Still though, ever since I stopped eating poorly it’s been one of my few “treats.” And then it became my crutch. Want a cupcake? Drink some soda. Want to eat a glass full of fake sugar? Drink some soda.
I started off on the right foot, but things quickly went poorly. By Friday on our staycation, I was so tempted by Diet Coke that I just went for it. Come on … eating out every meal is such a lure for tasty beverages!
By Saturday, I considered myself a CGU challenge failure and bought some Fresca. Woe is me.
What I’ve learned: At some point, I started drinking too much soda. I need to decrease my consumption, even if it’s gradually.
Somehow, giving up gluten for six weeks during Lent was WAY easier than not drinking soda for a week … aka four days.
