The road is better. I have decided that on Saturday December 20th I will allow myself a soda. That’s when my friends celebrate Festivus (look it up) so I feel I’ll have earned it by then! Just one as a reward during the day! But after that, right back to my no nonsense cold turkey attitude.
I suffer from no more headaches or stomach issues. I haven’t seen a remarkable improvement in my digestive system or energy but there has been small differences. I’m assuming I need much longer to really see results of having cut soda from my diet. I do require less caffeine to function now although I really feel the drop when I am running on empty.
Sleep-wise? It hasn’t made any real improvements in my ability to sleep. The insomnia remains but the exhaustion is more prominent. The real difference is once I am able to actually fall asleep I do stay that way. But the trick is still getting there to begin with. Herbert my purple otter has not visited me in a week though because I’m getting at least 2-3 hours of sleep a night. So, I’m not quite delusional.
Back to daily updates tomorrow!
