Day 21 -- What I'm Drinking

Yes, yes, I know I'm a couple days behind. I DID take this pic on the 4th, but didn't get around to downloading it from the camera until today. Anyway, on with the story...

One of my ongoing goals is to drink less Diet Dr. Pepper and more water. Well, I've been doing lousy at both! So, I have renewed my resolve to work harder at this goal. It is plain to me that I'm not quite ready to give up my DDP just yet, but I definitely need to drink more, for now, I'm going to concentrate on the drinking more water part.

This is the plan:

  • No more than 3 cans of DDP a day -- hope to cut that back to 2 in a couple weeks...
  • Drink at least one bottle of water before drinking the first can of DDP.
  • Drink another bottle of water between each can of DDP
  • Drink at least 2 more bottles of water during the day.
This is the third day of this new plan and so far, so good.

Cutting back on the DDP is going to take a little more time and resolve, but I'll get there.


  1. OK I am all for the no soda thing.. I stopped cold turkey!! So I feel for ya!
    But I am also on the NO MORE bottled water band wagon. Please go to a sporting good store/walmart and buy a few refillable water bottles!! Saving the earth one bottle at a time!!

  2. I do have a whole cupboard of refillable bottles and I do use them. However, there are times when I'm out and about and I end up buying a bottle of water. I will refill that bottle for a couple days.

    At home we have a water cooler and we fill the 5 gallon jugs with filtered water. So, while it may look like I might be using an excessive amount of water bottles, really that is not the case. The ones we do use end up at the recycling center and not in a landfill.

    It's not perfect, but it is a balance I have reached and am happy with. To each his own...

  3. I hear ya, I try really not to buy water when I am out shopping, but sometimes ya just got to. But I have been doing really good with not buy bottle water.. No soda either since I posted on day 3 I think it was.
