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 🙂 …
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.
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!
