Think about your biggest weakness...come on, are you thinking about it? Close your eyes and imagine yourself indulging in this particular weakness. Enjoyable, isn't it? Now imagine yourself going without it for two weeks.
That's where I am right now.
I am attempting to do what I used to think was impossible. I am choosing to go without Pepsi for two weeks.
Why? Because it's so terribly bad for me, but I just can't seem to get enough. It also probably has a lot to do with some of my weight gain over the last few years. So I decided to try and cut it out of my life...for two weeks. I picked two weeks because it's not an unreasonable amount of time. If I would've picked a month or more, there's no way I would've succeeded. That would've just been pure torture. And then, chances are, I'd get too discouraged and end up on a Pepsi binge. But two weeks is also long enough that I may notice a difference in my weight...maybe. And if not, at least I'll know that I can do it.
The plan is to do this off and on over the next while. Go on a two week hiatus, then indulge in it a few times here and there before withdrawing from it again. This is actually my third attempt since Saturday, believe it or not! I "fell off the wagon" twice already (this is not going to be easy!). So I figured I'd better quickly publish it on my blog; maybe then I would be better at sticking with it.
So, starting today -- my body will be Pepsi-free for two weeks. That means that on Friday, October 26 I'll be cracking open a can and savouring every. single. drop. Ahhh................
