eight week challenge complete

Well, today marks the end of the eight week weight loss challenge I was participating in.  I had a banner week and lost 3 lbs!  I ran almost every day this week and really did a great job watching my diet.  I’ll know later today if I won the $180 or so prize :)

Interestingly enough, last night I had to work an event late and had dinner out.  I ended up drinking a bottle of Coke.  I have been a soft drink fiend my whole life, and this time, it was just not that good.  I have been off soda for nearly two months, my only sodas have been on a road trip and a flight.  I just didn’t really enjoy it.  However, I was tired and needed the sugar and caffeine.  I now know that I can safely avoid the stuff unless it’s a rare occasion.  That’s progress.
