Its been a hectic weekend here and Ive had a few slip ups with my first goal which is a little embarrassing but I’m not giving up!
I did good most of the week. I’ve only had my morning coffee each day and plain water the rest of time. Friday was B’s 5th birthday and I held strong until lunch when I caved and had a snack size McDonald’s vanilla frappe which was beyond delicious and reminded my why I’m addicted to these things. I swore them off for the rest of the week but my will power wasn’t strong enough because the next day I did it again I had another snack size frappe. Although it was just as delicious as the one before it I promised myself that I wasn’t going to have another until the end of the week and I’m proud to say Ive stayed strong and haven’t had one since Saturday. Saturday night Ive also had a ‘Karma Water’ and another one on Sunday these claim to be healthy which was my justification as to why I had them but now sitting here and reflecting on it it was a poor excuse to cheat on my goal and no matter how good it tasted it didn’t make me feel any less guilty about cheating. Sitting here on my couch as I type this I am proud to say that I haven’t had a single sugary drink since Sunday and although it wasn’t that long ago I still should celebrate the small victories.
After thinking about the past week and my slip ups and small victories I needed to reexamine my goal. Maybe giving up all sugary drinks for the week was a little ambitious and not at all realistic for myself. When I started with weight watchers I slowly cut things out since giving things up cold turkey NEVER works for me and leads to some binges (such as the Friday, Saturday, Sunday episode). I have decided to alter my mini goal from zero sugary drinks to one every other day this week (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Monday).
Ill post back next Tuesday about any success and any failures (hopefully only success this time).
Thanx for reading
