Happy Fat Tuesday everyone!
Everyone knows Mardi Gras means beads and lots of drinking.
The actual reason for Mardi Gras is that it marks the last day before Lent. Now - I'm not Catholic or anything, but I grew up with the tradition of giving something up for Lent. I started trying to eat healthier this year along with some friends - so we can all support each other. I think Lent is a perfect way to try to do one more thing for my health and personal weight loss goals.
I don't really talk about my weight loss plans with anyone normally - but what better way to help me try to stick to my plans than announcing it online?
I joined Weight Watchers in January and so far I've lost 15.8 pounds. I'm very excited with my weight loss so far - but I definitely still have some very bad habits. One of them is my Diet Crack, I mean Diet Coke habit. I'm a Diet Coke fiend! I must have one every day. Just the thought of trying to give up my Diet Coke makes me twitch.
I am going to attempt to give up Diet Coke for Lent.
Who thinks I can do it? I challenge myself to go 40 days with no Diet Cokey goodness.
Who's with me? I will personally send everyone that does this "No Diet Coke for Lent Challenge" with me (and succesfully completes it) a prize. Seriously!
Repeat after me, "I will drink water - lots and lots of water"
Sign up in the comments if you want to kick the Diet Coke habit with me - I'll need all the support I can get!!!
Now I'm going home to drink all the Diet Coke in the house - so I'm not tempted! (just kidding!)
