Soooooo I'm putting myself through a HUGE challenge right now. Now go ahead and laugh after you read this....but its very TOUGH for me...trust me. I am a Coke addict...have been for years! Cherry Coke is my deal and my hubby makes sure to keep me in stock like a pimp ahahahaha. I always have 2-3 cases of it in our extra refrigerator in the garage. I'm really, really, really trying to cut back from the 3 or 4 Cokes I drink a day....yes I said 3 or 4...I told you it was an issue LOL! I'm just not a water drinker...it doesn't appeal to me. Its the sparkly yumminess of Coke that keeps me coming back...I will go off of it and then see a picture or ad of a Coke and go right back to it...its like a darn drug I tell ya! **yes I have serious issues with sugar too LOL**
I mean look at the beauty...mmmm good...yumminess LOL!
So I'm trying to cut back to just 1 Coke a day...I'm not going cold turkey cuz' I just don't wanna...period. But I want to start drinking 3-4 glasses of water a day too...cuz' its good for me and I need to. I like my water ICE COLD...that means LOTS of ice...and it has to have lemon in it...not a lot but just a slice is good.
And this is where hubby broke down...laughing at me...he apparently thought what I'm about to tell you was hysterical. Whatever...pfffffftttttt..it is what it is. I HAD to buy special water glasses...yes pretty ones...that looked nice on the table when I'm drinking it. Now I will admit that I have more glasses than should be humanly possible...but that is NOT the point on my story so I won't delve into that ;) So I searched...and I searched....and I searched and then I found exactly what I wanted. Not too thick of glass and not too thin...not too small and not too big...yup I finally found 'em at Amazon.com (dang that store for all its goodness). And...I made HUBBY pay for 'em...hey I'm a smart girl now puh-leeze ;) ...learn from me people, learn!
So I went with these Luigi Bormioli 19.25 oz glasses
Four for $21.99 and Prime shipped 'em to me in 2 days...whoot!
And you know what...its working...heehee! I've only been drinking 1 Coke a day and drinking lots of water every day! I've been working out a lot...trying to get the jiggle and wiggle gone so that makes me drink a lot too. More on the work outs in another post...but I will share that this gal's muscles are SORE ugh! But so far so good with the water...so seeeee...my methods may be odd but they do work :) for me at least.
So here they are in action! Yup an action shot for ya! LOL! The ice was melting quickly outside on the patio...sorry..but it was 91 degs outside yesterday and stuff was melting fast. Clean, iced down water with a slice of lemon...not just for me but for the family too. So it proves to the ole' hubster that my theory of PRETTY makes it more enticing...at least for me...yeah, yeah I'm going with that story & stickin' to it!!
Any challenges you are trying to put yourself through for the better-ment of yourself/family??
