So, guys, you remember this post where I was excited to start a lifestyle change? Yeah, I barely remember too, lol.
My goals were:
Drink at least the recommended 8 oz. of water a day
Cut out the every day Mountain Dew drinking
Try to exercise at least 20-30 minutes a day
For the first three weeks I did pretty well. I drank waaayy more water than I have in a long time. Mountain Dew consumption was cut down dramatically. Exercise? No, that didn’t happen, lol, but Thanksgiving happened. We went to my granny’s who always has a surplus of Coke. I drank a lot. Too much. Then, when we returned from my granny’s, we were moving from our home we had been in for 6 years to our first home bought by us =) When I had a chance, I would eat and drank whatever was on hand. We had six packs of Pepsi and Mountain Dew in the fridge that my husband bought. Since the move, I’ve been a bit better. I’ve been drinking more water and have substituted my Dews for Powerades or Gatorades. They’re still sugary drinks but I feel they’re a bit better than a caffeine and sugar induced high that MD’s gave me. I have no one to blame but myself though. I need to be more determined and strict on myself so I’m going to forge ahead and continue to cut out Mountain Dews and Cokes too!
