Week Three

by MARIA on April 5, 2012

Here’s how I did this last week:

Woo Hoo.

I haven’t had a Diet Coke or Starbucks or any coffee or caffeine since before March 26 – 11 Days! That may not sound like a big number, but it’s huge for someone who drank a ton of both, daily.

Since quitting both, and cutting out starches and junk and things with sprinkles and other things that make you salivate, I’ve had zero heartburn, zero bloating and I want to sleep again.

Bye insomnia.

Yes, I still dream of cold Diet Cokes, and cupcakes – all the time. And yet, I haven’t indulged once – it’s a whole lot of chicken and huge salads and tons of veggies for me. Also, water is the only thing I’m drinking, except for the occasional mineral water.

I feel really good, and maybe even proud of myself and it’s been ages since I could say either.

Wow! Great job! With 16 more weeks until BlogHer, you are on a great track! I have 6 more weeks until the half marathon that I’m signed up for. Saturday is my first 6 mile run. Slowly but surely. It is so hard to give up caffeine, but I have been thinking about it too. I only drink one coffee each morning and rarely drink soda, but I still think it couldn’t hurt to cut it out all together.

16 weeks until Blogher? That’s it??? That seems so soon!! Good luck on the half marathon – that’s amazing.

You are a ROCK STAR!!!

My official weigh in day is Sunday, hoping my lone gem in the pounds lost jar gets at least one friend this week!

Way to go Maria!!!! Woot Woot!!!! I am so super proud of you!!! You are doing an amazing job!!! In fact, you inspired me to lose my baby weight. After you sent me the link to hungry for change, I watched the video, scared m in a good way, and went out and bought a juicer! I have cute out the junk. And the Diet Coke (so hard) drinking more water, juicing, and getting out for fresh air every day! I am down 4lbs! I am trying to get the courage to blog about it. If so, may I link up to you?
