Today I received a coupon in my email inbox from Red Robin, It said that I have until this weekend to redeem my free milkshake when I make a 10 dollar purchase. Now who said the Devil does not exist? Of course I want a burger and a milkshake. I am weak! I deleted the email, and will not be going to Red Robin this weekend. I am weak, but I have goals! Let’s keep it going.
Along with eating better, I am really making an effort to drink more water. I heard that we should be drinking a gallon of water each day. I probably do not drink anything near a gallon of water. I drink coffee in the morning, black, no milk, no sugar. I will also drink green tea, and then there is water. I am not a soda drinker, and I stopped drinking artificially flavored juice a long time ago. I will drink Honest Tea at times because it has less sugar than other teas, and I drink some water but not nearly enough. Honestly I hate having to use the bathroom multiple times each day, so I don’t drink that much at work. That’s bad because I spend a large portion of my day in the office, so I am trying to drink more water. Today I think I drank close to 42 ounces, so I am getting there.
Water, the drink of champions. Well hopefully.
Today I was slightly tired, but I think that was because I went to bed later than my usual bedtime. Overall, I still feel good. The sugar withdrawal….well I think it’s still there, or still in my head. I may look for a vegan meet up group in the DC area this weekend, I need to know people who actually live this lifestyle. Right now I know…well none.
Wish me luck! Day 4 done.
