Hits and Misses
Well, this is an interesting journey. I haven't had much trouble with the booze or caffeine. Sugar seems to be the monkey on my back. I have been drinking a ton of water but the food and exercise have kind of died. I have two weeks till my reunion (Aug 28) so I am going to redouble my efforts in these last two weeks. In retrospect, it might have been a little psychotic to drop everything all at once. Kind of like a smoker quiting smoking while also starting a diet while also training for a marathon. It's a little unrealistic. However, I do believe I have kicked my caffeine habit. Alcohol was never a big issue but it's nice to know I don't need it. Sugar is like my heroin. That's what I'm going to concentrate on in the next two weeks as well as the exercise. All in all, this has been a very interesting experiment. We all know that we prefer things but do we really know how much we need those things. I am hoping to unburden myself if I can from a few of those things. So in conclusion, so far, I have been successful in the alcohol and caffeine department, not to successful in the sugar and exercise department. All things considered, I'm OK with that.
