Struggles and Success
After drinking Diet Coke as most of my fluid intake except when I exercised drinking lots of water has become a natural thing for me in the last month. I keep a glass next to the sink all the time and whenever I walk over there I either finish off whats in the glass or I fill it up again.
Don't get me wrong. I'm still enjoying my soda but at more strategic time (more to come on that) and less of it. I could seriously drink 18 or more cans a week and that didn't always count what I might have while I was out and about. Now it's about 4 cans a week. Success.
I enjoy my water, sometimes flavored sometimes not but now it's not so hard to get all that water in.
Now here is what I'm still struggling with. I like to eat at night. Now you know from my post from last week about getting your calories in early that I KNOW BETTER! But it's still a struggle. I'm not eating as much but I'm having a hard time not going for a late night snack. I try to make good choices but it's still energy that's not being burned and therefore is being stored as fat. So now that I've outed myself I hope that you try to keep me in line and check on my progress. I hope that I can improve in the next two weeks!
