I’ll be truthful. I once ordered a bathing suit online while eating pie (out of the container). This was definitely a low point. Sometimes I block it out, other times I embrace it in the spirit of self-motivation.
So, I got one today. A bathing suit ad promising I would look a whole size smaller. I was checking my email and eating potato chips an apple when the ad came through. How did they know? Are they banking on the fact that I can’t keep my cliché New Years Resolutions? Uh, you betcha. And they are right.
Yes, I like the occasional potato chip, but on the whole I have been making better food choices to no avail.
I know what is keeping me from making progress. It’s soda. But I love it. My husband says it’s an addiction. I prefer to think of it as a habit.
So, I’m trying to quit my habit. I am three days soda sober and hopeful it will last. Maybe this blog can serve as public accountability for me. At the end of each post I will report my progress.
If the update isn’t there this could mean one of three things:
1) lack of caffeine is keeping the neurons in my brain from firing and I have no recollection of this commitment;
2) I’m laying on the floor twitching; or,
3) I’m bingeing on soda and will soon be needing a support group and this bathing suit (which is basically a $90 sausage casing).
So…what’s your vice?
