A Small Reward to Myself!

Wednesday, January 04, 2012

One of my current goals is to drink less pop and drink more water. While out running some errands today, I decided to purchase re-usable drink cup! Here at work, we have a small snack shop--so instead of choosing pop, I can get ice and cold water, for free! As much as I like bottled water, I am choosing to not spend the money on it. We can recycle the plastic bottles here...however, I still think the re-usable cup is better for the environment! For me, this is a win-win. I will drink more water, spend less money and create less waste!

To some folks, this may seem like a rather obvious change...but I am a procrastinator and basically lazy. I am seeing this as a reward--for making the choice to go from TALKING about drinking more water, to actually DOING it and for tracking my food for the past couple of days. For me this is huge!

    What a great reward!! It is hard to give up sodas. Even diet sodas are not good for us. Now I just need to walk the walk and not just talk the talk.

    I was drinking SO much Pepsi Max while I was working third shift that I would end up staying awake half the day and was only getting 4 hours of sleep due to all the caffeine in my system. I have carried a water bottle around for years...now I carry a purse big enough to carry a smaller one in it and I take it literally everywhere. My kids make fun of me but it is better for the environment and saves a ton of money too.

    It isn't easy to give up Diet Coke. They may have restarted using real cocaine in it again! Keep strong and move along the trail to a healthier life.
