I am going to try (and I do mean try) to give up coffee and cokes for one month. Why? Because I think that those two things are causing my gradual weight gain of the summer. Skip says it might be all the desserts I've had lately, but I'm not buying that. I have always had a dessert here and there, but I have not always drank as much coffee as I have lately. I know that coffee is not fattening, but when you use almost 3 tablespoons of hazelnut Creamer as I do, believe me-it's fattening! I did not post this yesterday for fear of failure my first day. I did it! I am not counting my Red Bull (sugar-free) in this diet I've created. It only has ten calories and I only have one a day. The rest of the day will be water. This may not be hard for some of you die-hard water drinkers, but for me it is huge. I never drink water, ever. Well, I take that back. I do drink water right after I work out, which is only 2 to 3 times a week (if I'm doing good). Okay, anyone else up for the challenge? Skip said, "No way, are you crazy?" I guess I may have to go it alone. I'll let you know if I succeed, or if I cave under the pressure of my bible study ladies drinking it right in front of me.
