Well, today was my day to begin this journey in earnest. I mixed my drink per my sponsor's instructions. I put about 2 oz of warm water in a mug and mixed thououghly. Then I poured it over my much loved crushed ice and added 16 oz of cold water.
Now I have to honest here as promised.
I do NOT like the taste!
It tastes like oversweet crystal lite. ick.
Now, I should tell you I'm truly addicted to Diet Coke.
I like the acidic bite. I like the sharpness of it.
So to drink something that's so sweet was a challenge.
So ... undeterred here's my plan.
I'll mix it the same but add lemon juice and maybe a little more water.
Having said all that; I feel great! I've had none of my beloved diet Coke. No french fries, burgers, or donuts. Yea me! (hmm, just realized I don't have my familiar withdrawal headache).
What I did have was a yummy green salad, clementine, gluten free granola bar, coconut greek yogurt, hard boiled egg, grapefruit juice, meatloaf, mashed potato and tomato soup. Yum! I feel full and satisfied.
Day 1 is a success!
