So, it's been 15 days of no fast-food and sugary sodas for me. And if you've been following along with all or part of the challenge since I posted about then it's been 13 days for you. How have you been doing? I've been doing GREAT with the fast-food. And just as I had predicted, it gets easier each day. After the first week or so you stop seeing the restaurants on every corner and you start planning ahead with snacks. It really does get easier. With the exception of when you are tired and don't feel like cooking, it's then that the temptation is awful. But be strong my friends because that will get easier for us too!!
Sodas are a different story. I haven't had any sugary sodas including aspartame and splenda sodas but it's still really hard. In my history with sodas I have yet to a single day when I didn't crave bubbles. Even after months of no sodas I still thought about and craved them everyday. It's so sad. So, my goal is to eventually to maybe have one or two natural sodas a week. But I'm not there yet. I've had a ton of natural sodas these 15 days. BUT, that's better than what I was doing before, so I'll take it. Baby steps ya'll!
So, now it's your turn...I'd love for you share with me in the comments or an email how you are doing - good or bad.
