Here is my confession. A few weeks ago I signed up for what I thought would be an easy challenge: Cutting back on my consumption of Diet Coke.
Drop a can? Sure, no problem. Except real life happened.
First came the 79-cent sodas at Speedway. So I swapped my cans for plastic - I sheepishly admit #5 plastic - cups each morning on the way to work. I justified it by saying I was spending less.
Then came the weekend, and a sale on (#1 plastic) 2-liters. At least I can recycle these, I justified to myself. Except I drink even more from plastic 2-liters than I do from cans, which are perfectly rationed.
And today, I not only hit up the 2-liter this morning, but driving back to the office, I grabbed a comfort cup of (caffeine free) Diet Coke. I'm down after learning my grandmother passed this morning, and I don't know what it is about an iced soda that makes it a comfort food of sorts for me.
What I'm trying to say is, I'm failing miserably at this little challenge. I would think baby steps of removing alumnimum can consumption from my habit wouldn't be difficult, but it has been. Does anyone have ideas on how to successfully cut back?
