Goal up date

My mini goal focus has been to keep my sugary drink consumption to one drink every other day and I am proud to say I have been doing really good since I last posted about this mini goal on July 20th I have been to the movies twice and only once did I get a diet coke and I barely made it half way through before it started making me feel sick. When did this crap get so sweet? The second time I went with S and it was a different theater that had bottled water so I got that instead. Since my last post I also went out to eat twice and got a diet coke each time , again I didn’t even finish it because it so sickly sweet and I’m now turned off from pop of any kind completely. The only time I want to get it is when I’m craving the carbonation so I think I’m going to try carbonated water and maybe flavor it with some citrus or something because pop just makes me want to throw up these days.  

I‘ve been thinking a lot about my new goal and its one of the reasons It has taken me longer then I planned to write this post and I want this one to be more of a challenge. My next goal is to not buy any sweets this week and by sweets I mean chips, chocolate bars, cookies and candy of any sort. The only sweets I will have are the ones I make.  I am taking B for Menchies frozen yogurt tomorrow which will be tough for me since they have all kinds of delicious toppings like gummy worms, smarties. peanut butter cups (my favorite) but I will stick to my half cup of frozen yogurt with a couple of those juicy fruit popper thingys on top.   

Goal Up Date

 

After my first failure I tweaked my goal a little to allow a little wiggle room to allow myself a little without going over board. I am proud to say I aced this goal. I allowed myself to have one on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Monday (then Wednesday and Friday since I missed my check in on Tuesday). I only had one green tea iced tea from Tim Horton’s on Saturday and I attempted to have a diet coke on Monday but I could barely get through 2 sips without being over whelmed by how sweet it was. I’m going to take my reaction to the diet coke as a good sign that I am not as ‘hooked’ on pop as much as I thought.

 

For the next week my goal is to keep the same one sugary drink every other day (Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday…) but before I buy, open and drink it my goal is to make sure the drink is worth the points/calories as well as why I want it. Nothing too deep but am I drinking it because its the only option and I’m thirsty, I’m tired of water blah blah blah.
