Day 6: I really want a diet Coke.
I don't know if the fatal flaw is due to a new housekeeping routine, where I do a general once-over in the morning, and then MoBob finishes up when he arrive in the afternoon and does the heavy-duty cleaning on the weekends. I can't think of anything else I've changed in my life.
Maybe cold turkey wasn't such a great idea. I thought I'd feel, I don't know, better, or at least, more virtuous.
Alas. I just feel pooped.
On another note, we visited a friend and her family in suburban Maryland and spent some time with the family guinea pig, Muffin. Very cute, although she pooped (perhaps out of anxiety?) all over MB's shirt. I would love to have a guinea pig, but somehow I don't think MB will be easily persuaded.
ETA: I caved and drank a Diet Coke with lime and I feel so much better! Yay!

It's so not the same, but I've moved to sparkling water and juice mixed together. That way I get the carbonation I crave with the sweetness of the juice. Jenny kicked caffeine by slowly moving from caffeinated to half-caff to black tea to green tea to herbal. She had a whole system. Too complicated for me but effective for her. I'm thinking about you.
