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!

Could you be pregnant? Often the first symptom is overwhelming fatigue (this time around, I literally COULD NOT stay awake past 9 pm for a while).

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.

just out of curiosity (no judgment), why are you quitting coke?

i've cut back, but i've increased my coffee consumption (from once a week to once every other day).

Mainly for health reasons - I was downing 4-6 cans a day - and also for financial ones. You know, in case I ever get fertile. :)

4-6 cans? Ok, now I understand.
