I posted this pic on Instagram on June 25th. Yep, you read that right. I haven’t had pop (or “soda,” for you weirdos ) in 31 days. I think this is longest I’ve ever gone without it – aside from when I was pregnant.
I read somewhere that it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. I can confidently say that I am no longer addicted to Coca-cola. There have plenty of times that there was some readily available to me, and I resisted the urge to drink it. Actually, I didn’t have any real urge at all. Any glimmer of “want” was just out of habit. And now, that habit is broken. For good, I hope.
My success with breaking a decades-long addiction/habit has got me itching to try something else. To try a new habit. But this time, I want form a new habit – a healthy habit. Kind of like replacing the bad with the good, you know?
I was thinking my new habit should be exercise related. But, since I haven’t really worked out in lord knows how long, I plan on starting small – just three – four days a week. Then, after a month, maybe upping it.
