Have a Coke(zero) and a Mile.

I may have actually gotten a good start on the "get in better shape" highway. I have not had a real, classic, fresh, ice cold coca cola in 10 days. I have tried Coke Zero from Chic-fil-a's fountain once and that was tolerable to fend off the cravings. Of course, on the way to work this morning 7-11 was informing all of us unsuspecting addicts that 32oz. Big Gulps are only .69 this month. This is not information that I needed to know!!

I have also exercised at least 8 of those days. Yesterday I actually thought I'd try running again, and I made it a little more than a mile (13 minutes). Not bad after being away from it for about 5 weeks. I made it 16 minutes tonight, so maybe I might actually be on the right road. I keep thinking that I will feel better if I just stick with it.

So this week and next---no Coke, no eating after 7:30 pm as much as possible, no Hot Tamale candies, and up the running to 3 times a week for 20 minutes.

If you see me on the "get in better shape"highway try not to run me over, especially if you are running faster and getting in shape sooner, just wave and smile and know you'll always be better at it than me.


  1. I will be under the overpass of said highway-

    keep it up- you are doing great- those cravings eventually go away!

  2. 69 cents is awesome ... but 7-11 doesn't have a drive through. And yes, I really am that lazy.

  3. don't worry, you'll be stepping over an exhausted passed out me right at the beginning of that highway!!! try not to tread on my head!

  4. Congrats on the progress! I really need to get back on that road! Keep up the great work.
