Day One.

So, apparently I can either post pics or write--I'm not smart enough to figure out how to do both!  So, here's the thing...since my bday, I've been a little depressed.  It was really hard to have this goal in front of me and have the day pass...I did fairly well, but since then I've been a little aimless.  I haven't been sure what to do next...So, here it is.  Actually there are two, but this is the first one.  And honestly, none of you are going to believe me, because I've tried it before.  But, one of the times has to be the last time I try.  So, right now I have officially been off diet coke for 21 hours.  I know this may seem like a small thing, but let me brutally honest here.  On any given day I will buy four large McDonald's Diet Cokes (in fact I know the drive-thru window girls by name--even bought them birthday presents.); in addition to the money I spent there, I will also drink anywhere from 2-4...okay 5 more cans.  Literally I had a diet coke in my hand at all times.  I woke up thinking when I would get my first one; when I finished one, I would plan when I would get the next one.  This is wrong on so many levels (I get that!), I'm stopping--cold turkey.  Because what I want is to be kinder to my body; I want to find joy in life in things other than those damn plastic cups; I want to deal with my frustrations instead of going through the drive-thru to ease my anxiety; I want to NOT be a failure!  And this time I'm going to do it.  How long?  I have no idea...but for now, it's one day down; tomorrow I will do the same (if I remember correctly days two and three are the hardest!).  So, I ask for your support and Steve and my children ask for you prayers.  Until tomorrow...
ps.  goal number two is following Dave Ramsey (no diet coke and no shopping?!?!?  I'm not sure life is worth it.
