It works for me anyway and now that my "travels" are over for a few weeks, I can get back to that.

Have a great day tomorrow.
Well I have not had one drop of Coke today and I feel ok, but my energy level is definitely down! I definitely need to start getting to bed earlier so that acually sleep and rest can replace the "buzz" of the caffeine and sugar!

Hope you are having a great day!!
Mike

Hi Cam!

I did get to bed with no late night indulgence last night so that was good! Food plan for today focuses mostly on getting rid of the Coke. I would usually have had 3 or 4 by now, and have had nothing but water. I am psyched.

I leave tomorrow late morning to go to their house. It is only 30min away but i figured why not take half a day off so I can enjoy the sun? Ok, I will make a commitment for my swimming this weekend... they have an above ground circular pool, pretty big. I will committ to walk/swim 50 laps a day for the weekend. So 150 by the time I leave Sunday. How does that sound?

Anyway, have a great day, WISH bud. Oh, yeah, and be sure to go over and harass Don when you get a chance. He seems to have a great plan and a wonderful sense of humor. This bunch is more fun every day.
Not sorry at all, if anything I am amazed and honored by the support! I just dropped Don a note too, seems like he is on his way!

Mike

Hi Tracy!
Hope you are having a good day! I finished Day 1 of my trip report and have been trying to post it for an hour but the message board keeps having an error. I will be trying again after I post here on my journal. Watch for it, it is exciting! hahaha

Mike

Edited To Add: After trying all day I finally got part one of my trip report to post!! Part two is in the works, I tend to be wordy! If anyone wants to read it, click here!

Good afternoon!! hehe

Yesterday was good, and today is better!
I have actually heard the Walmart variety is very good according to some of the women I work with. I think I will be sticking to water as I have an allergy to aspartame, and don't even want to try the new sweeteners. I will probably include the every so often regular lemonade/juice with my "Reward meal" in the language of the Carb Addicts Plan.
As far as caffeine goes, none so far today! Keep your toes crossed for me!

hehe!
Mike

Someone else posted, I am sorry I can't remember who it was, about getting some Crystal Light. We were going to buy some and at least here in Denver it is really expensive. So we found an alternative. Walmart has their brand, Great Value, of Crystal Light. It is about half the price and it is not half bad. There is nothing in it as far as calories, fat, sugar that kind of stuff. I don't drink it much but I will have a glass every once in a while. Rare though. My DH loves it. This is just something else to think about as well.

How is the caffeine intake today?

Hope you have a great day!

Good Job!!

way to go on the coke today, you're doing better than me, but I AM cutting down I need to swim, my kids always want me to take them. I have to make myself do laps tho, usually when i get in a pool (and the water leaves ) I just want to relax and enjoy the weightlessnessessess... Hey, i didn't realize you were such a board vet, i'll have to go read some of your old posts, sounds like you're a real disney vet too. <jealous> I HAVE been to DL many times, living here in the west, so I shouldn't complain, but sometimes I still do, life's been good to me so far...

Oh, and i figured out when the banana gets tired, or at least gets paralyzed. Its when I'm using Firefox instead of IE. LOL


Weird, the dancing dude below is immune to the firefox paralysis.

Don! You have discovered to key to stopping the onslaught of the marching bananas! If they ever decide to turn against us, we shall use this Firefox weapon to decimate their troops and claim victory!

The weightlessness is a pool is the best part, I agree. I usually dread getting out as gravity seems to return all at once! I go from being as light and large as a cloud to a round mound of heavy ground! The way I see it is, if I can do a little working out in the pool then I owe myself at least that same amount of time in the water drifting.

And hey, the love of the WDW is what brought us all here to the boards, whether we've been once, never, or 100 times. Once you touch the magic, as I am sure you have at DL, we're all pros!

p.s. Complain away on here, that 's what we're here for, to listen!

have a great day!
Mike

I want a Coke, a nice cold coke, over ice, in a glass that is sweating... ohhhh the amber sweetness, the bubbles rising to the top, the carbonation that pops on your tongue making you anxious for the caramel cool that is to follow... hmmm.....

BUT!!!

I am not going to have one! The glass if ice water infront of me is cooler than any Coke could ever be, looking like a crystal ball instead of the muddied cola, in it I can see a better future, a clearer future where I feel better in my own skin and I drink because I thirst, not because I am tired, or hungry, or trying to get that buzz back... I feel better when the ice cool water passes my lips, it refreshes and I can almost feel my cells saying "That's what we're talking about!"

Mike

I love the ice cold glass of water being a crystal ball into the future. That is great!

You can get past the cola. Just remember that it never really quenches the thirst, it just drags you back. Also, it's a vicious cycle of: tired? so drink the cola, now I have the buzz, but the sugar is making me tired, so drink the cola. Who really wins that match? Not the one you want.

Here is an added incentive. Trying putting the money that you would normally spend on the carbonated beverages in a jar for a couple of months or until you reach your goal. That savings will add up and you will be able to have some extra added fun in WDW (or somewhere else).

Have a great evening.

Thanks for your note! You were reading my mind with this...

I was trying to figure out this afternoon how much I spend on the junk! When I do it will be going into the new savings account I am starting for my next WDW adventure.

Hope you have a great night!
Mike

Hi Mike!!

Great start to your trip report! Looking forward to the rest...

I love your Coke/ ice water analogy! Hang in there, Mike! Before you know it, you'll be saying, "Coke....Who needs Coke?"

Have a great day!

So, Mike, how go the Cola Wars???? Sounds like you're winning!

You might try a carbonated water (perrier, seltzer, etc) with a touch of RealLemon juice or RealLime juice. Flavor, bubbles, but not the sugar, caffeine, or fake sweeteners.

Have you heard about the rec center yet?? Maybe I missed it!

Have a great 2 weeks while I'm gone. I'd imagine there will be less of you by the time I get back.

Hang in there! I'll catch ya later!
