Oh, that diet coke!

Today is the day that I am starting a MAJOR cut back in my diet coke intake. It's becoming ridiculous and I'm afraid it's going to kill me. ha, no not really funny. I don't want to quit all together because I love it so why stop altogether? However, I need to drink WAY WAY less and add a lot of WATER to my fluid intake. I think if I can do this then I will be a lot happier with more energy. I also think drinking more water will help in my weight loss. And on top of all that, drinking less diet coke will make diet coke even better because I wont have it as often. I think this is going to be good for me. It's almost 2pm and I've only had one! And I've had a lot of water! 
Wish me luck and send words of encouragement because this is not going to me easy for me.
but i can do it.

Ok, so I'm going through weight loss as well, and one thing I've found is carry a water bottle with you at like ALL TIMES!! It's great and it will motivate you to drink more water.

Also, Apple Juice in the morning wakes you up more than caffeine, i know sounds crazy, but once you get over your addiction to caffeine you'll totally tell!

Another thing, VITAMINS!! I recently started taking them and it has made such a difference! B-12 will give you energy that will last throughout the day but only take in the morning, multi vitamins for women, and I take a calcium suppliment, personally for me, I feel the calcium defficency, my toes with break and my nails chip, i've noticed a HUGE difference!

Hahaha good job!!! It really does help though to just flush out your body every day with lots of water. you must already know that although diet Coke has 0 calories, it doesn't do any favors!
Let me know if you want me to write out a nutrition plan for ya, I'm in the same boat, trying to drop 5-10 pounds before the pool opens May 21st!! Yah, just found that out!

Good luck! The only reason I kick my diet coke habit is thanks to this baby.. I don't think it taste good at all anymore! Weird huh?!? Good luck though! And I second the water bottle trick! I always have one with me..
