Soda Free April, Day 5

Other

So… I accidentally drank a glass of coke yesterday without even thinking!!

It was hilariously automatic. I went for lunch with my colleague in the middle of some research in a shopping mall, and only halfway through did I remember. It’s mostly because I don’t eat at restaurants very frequently, so I remembered all my usual triggers but not that one. D’oh.

Oh well. I can’t undo it, so I’ll just have to carry on and remember to get water in future 🙂 …

Soda-Free April: Day 1

Levelling Up and Productivity

When I started 2019 I had wanted to spend every month work on a new challenge or habit. During January I worked on ‘Saying yes’ (no blog post) and was really successful (never done karaoke before…) . In March I didn’t have a particular challenge, but I did work on consistently doing exercise I found fun… Like dancing – badly 🙂

This April I’m cutting out all carbonated drinks! Ironically this become a bit of a problem during my no takeaway challenge back at the end of last year, which just shows how your dependencies can shift onto something else.

Rules:

1. No carbonated drinks, at all.

2. Juice or a pint or two if I’m out with friends.

3. Drink more water! I just bought a new bottle — nothing fancy, it was super cheap — and hoping to use it at work.

That’s it! I can’t imagine this being extremely hard past the first week or so — I mostly get cravings when I buy a meal deal or something like that, as I would typically get a coke or something with it. I mostly want to cut that out, and rehydrate 🙂

Will update more this week!
