Farewell to Sugar Filled Drinks: Day Three Results

reel-mowerToday was easier than the previous two days to avoid sugar filled drinks.  I didn’t have the afternoon craving today that I’d had Friday and Saturday.  That may be the result of all the water I drank today while doing yard work.  My riding lawn mower is temporarily out of commission so I’ve had to resort to using my Reel Mower and actual brute force labor.

I only managed to get about half of the front yard cut but I did drink about twelve glasses of water to stay hydrated.

On top of that, I stepped on the scale for my weekly weigh in and I learned I had dropped a little over a pound this week.  On the weight loss front that’s a step in the right direction.  I’ve got a good way to go but at least I didn’t lose any ground this week.

This is the third day in a row that I’ve managed to stick to water and coffee only to drink.  The support continues to roll in and I feel it’s making a huge difference in being able to maintain my self control.  At least for me I feel far more accountable to stay on track.

I had hoped to be able to report feeling a positive difference today but my lovely wife and I have both managed to catch summer colds.  The stuffiness and coughing have overshadowed any positive improvements I would be feeling by now.  Not to mention the lack of sleep.

Blah!

Hopefully I’m turning the corner on that and should be feeling back to normal and better than normal in a day or two.  In the mean time I’ll just stay focused on my goal and know the persistence will pay off.

For tonight though I’m going to take two aspirin and see you in the morning.

Good night everyone!
