In Desperate Need of...

My blog reading friends, I only managed to stay off diet coke for about four days. In my defense, I had a completely acceptable reason to have it on one occasion and while I was sitting there drinking diet coke I wondered… why would I do this to myself???

Too much deprivation in life – no meat – no sugar – NO DIET COKE????!!!!

That will have to wait until I adjust to the lack of sugar. Which is going very well, by the way.

I feel like so much is changing around me, and yet nothing is changing for me. My mom and Cris are beginning a very long moving process to San Antonio. Cris got a new job and my mom has to finish teach here in Denver, hence the slow moving process.

Jeff and Jenna are moving to Cincinnati! Jenna got a promotion, she kinda a rockstar! I can’t wait to go see them. I’m thinking September-ish for a visit.

Friends are getting married, friends are moving, Caley is finally back (remember my road trip that I promised to post photos of and still haven’t).

I just feel like change happens so quickly, and yet I feel like nothing is changing for me all at the same time.

I sense that this is part of growing up.

Hey guys, sorry that I’ve practically abandoned my blog lately.

Things have been a bit busy around here and I haven’t had a lot of spare time (and by that I mean I’ve been filling all my spare time with things that keep me out of the house, my life really isn’t all that busy).

I’ve had a busy July and I can’t believe that it’s almost over!

Justin and Brooke came for a little visit at the beginning on the month. Their little baby girl is adorable and the most well behaved baby I’ve ever been around. Brooke’s Cousin Jodi came at for a visit too and we had a great time!

Check out Brooke’s blog post for all the deets.

So here’s my confession:

I’m not drinking Diet Coke anymore. I know, it’s pretty shocking.

The first day provided a mind-blowing headache and the remaining days brought some intense cravings but I’m doing just fine.

I’m also not eating sugar right now. I’m letting my body recover from all the junk I’ve been pouring into it. I’m going to take 21 days off of sugar and artificial sweetener.

I’ll keep you posted on how the next 18 days go…
