So, for the last few weeks, I’ve been having a can of Coca-cola each day as my caffeine source, much like people drink coffee each morning. The advantage of this is that it gives me a bit of pep, as I’m not a morning person, and I enjoy the taste of it. Unfortunately, it has more calories and sugar than coffee and is worse for my body.
Previously, when I went a bit crazy with pop, I decided to take a break, to reset. I am going to do that again.
I don’t think I’ll cut myself off completely. I might have a Coke or Coke Zero here and there, or some other soda beverage, but I don’t want it to be a consistent thing. I want things like pop to become a treat, rather than a requirement for starting my day. It is with that in mind that I’m going to spend a week where I can only have one or two cans of coke, and hope for the best.
I know this will help in my long term weight loss, and when I was nearing my goal before, it was a helpful thing to do. Wish me luck…
