The last Diet Coke of the season
Mormon girls the world over periodically claim that they're giving up Diet Coke.
I have probably been guilty of setting that absurd goal myself a time or two.
But this time I really am -- at least for twoish months.
See, the half-marathon training isn't going very well.
And this last week I have been constantly tired.
I've thought about it, and the only conclusion I can come to is that I need to change my diet. Eat less, and ... sigh ... consume less carbonation and caffeine.
Because really, I thought about it, and since I've started work, I've averaged 72 ounces of Diet Coke a day.
Three 20 ounce bottles spread through the work day. One to get me through the morning, one to go with my lunch, one to get me through the afternoon. And then I usually down a can of Diet Coke/Diet Coke Cherry/or Tab to accompany dinner. Sometimes two.
So I am giving it up, at least until April 17.
At which point I am going to demand an IV of the stuff to shoot directly into my veins.
