I never know exactly what I'm going to blog about, I usually have some ideas and basically I just start writing and words comes out. For me, it's just a way to get some things out in the open and off my mind, an exercise in my writing and hopefully something funny, profound or just plain entertaining comes out. But, today was one of those days where I had absolutely no idea of what to chat about. I was going about my normal everyday routine and catching up on reading all the great things you wonderful, fabulous, beautiful women are doing out there in blogland and I read this.
My first thought was aughhh... give up Diet Coke, are you kidding me? I did it once, years ago, for lent. I'm not religious but a friend of mine had past away a few weeks before and every year he gave up big things, and I thought in his memory I would try it. It went well, I struggled but I made it through and the first opportunity I had, I had a Diet Coke. But I read about Diet Coke and Zinger's quest for a DC free week and something clicked. I'm going to do this too. I'm on a quest to lose some weight and become more healthy so why not? Why not? Well basically, I love me some Diet Coke. Granted, I only have one at lunch but I so super look forward to it. It's high on my list of things that I really really don't want to do without but, this is worth a try.
I find a lot of motivation and support from your blogs and comments so, I thought I'd be there for her and she for me. We're all in this thing together, we're all trying to lose weight, we're all trying to be more healthy and we're all here for each other. So you ready for this one week challenge? Whatcha all think? You ready to give up one more little habit that might be something that's just not that good for you? It's only a week... come on folks, we've done harder things that this, right? And beside, we could use more company.
