I have been trying to kick my coke addiction for months, but every time I make progress, I fall right back off the wagon. It is frustrating, because I am well aware of all the empty calories I consume on a daily basis. But the lure of that fizzy, sugary drink is overwhelming.
A few weeks ago, I decided that I was no longer going to purchase myself Coca Cola. But I couldn't bare the thought of going cold turkey, so I made some excepts to the rule. I decided that I could accept a soda if someone offered me one, and I could also purchased a single serving of soda (like a 20 oz). However, I was no longer going to keep it stocked in my refrigerator. When I told John about my plan, he decided to give up Limeade too.
But we are clever little devils, and we figured out a way around our new rules. We simply started buying limeade and soda for one another. I would come home with a jug of Simply Limeade for John. He would come home with a case of Coca Cola Classic for me. So basically, we are back to square one.
