i just got back in from a week long class in Virginia. it was wonderful and i actually felt recharged by the trip. i was ready to get back home and hug my family at the end of the week, and my family (especially my parents and Jonathan) were really ready for me to get back home. 🙂
but here comes the announcement. i am saying good bye, at least for two months, to my dear friend fountain coke. this is the longest that i have given up real coke outside of a fast that i did. (isn’t it funny how God knows our hearts and our silly little preferences when He calls us to fast from something and to pray.) this time i am giving it up for weight loss goals. i am getting older (29 is coming soon) and drinking 44oz. is not helping.
the reason i am blogging about this is because i want accountability. if you see me drinking something i give you permission to ask me if it is diet. i want you to ask me. i thought i could do real coke in moderation but this is hard to moderate for me in stressful times. sad but very true so i am hoping that i will forget about the sweet taste and the delightful bubbles. who knows, after the two months are up i may not even miss it. 🙂
p.s. happy 2009!
