So, I finished my Whole30 last Friday!! Feel so good about sticking it out til the end! I’ll admit that Saturday I drank WAAAY too much wine, but I enjoyed every drop of it. Now I’m back on the straight and narrow, though, because I damn sure don’t want to undo everything I did last month.
First thing Saturday morning, I popped the top on an ice cold can of Coke Zero. I was expecting Nirvana. Don’t get me wrong, it was good, but I have discovered that there is indeed a life without Coke Zero. I never, ever thought I’d hear myself say such a thing, but there you have it. I’m drinking plain old water and fizzy water almost exclusively now. A glass of unsweetened iced tea now and then, but for the most part, it’s good ol’ H2O. Also something I’d never have dreamed of, ’cause I ain’t the biggest fan of water. But now that I’m used to it, I’m okay with it. And I know it’s SOOOO much better for me. Not saying that I’ve totally given up my dear friend Coke Zero, but now it’ll probably be like a couple a week, if that. Good to know that habits can be broken, even when you’re old as dirt!!!
Now, wine will be a different story. No more glass with dinner every single night, but if I want one, I’m having one. Still haven’t had a beer, but I did have a margarita last night. Along with the requisite brain freeze!!! I’m thinking that I’ll save the margaritas for a rare treat, that way they’ll be all the more special when I do indulge.
So, onward into the Paleo world I go!!
