amen squared to the diet pepsi. I LOVE the stuff.

Hey girls, I'm back on here..put on some weight before and during my trip to India in December. It's not any resolution type of stuff...just know where my body felt most comfortable and want to get there again.

Happy Tuesday.

I had a TERRIBLE Diet Coke problem, got off it this summer, but now I'm drinking it a lot again. I hate that. For me, it's really more a symptom of getting off track than a cause, but it all becomes circular.

Count me in as a Diet Pepsi fan, however I have not had any for over a year or more. I've pretty much given up on all sodas--diet or otherwise. I drink more than my fair share of water and will have a sparkling water once in a while (like San Pelligrino).

I usually eat to try to relieve stress and also to combat the major caffeine crash that comes late in the afternoon. I've changed the pattern by eating protein now, rather than the carbs I used to cram into my mouth. The next step is to reduce the caffeine. That will start in after daylight savings time "springs" forward and I'm not waking up at 4 a.m. evey morning.

Right now, without the caffeine, I'm ready to fall asleep at 8 p.m.

Rember airplane? "this is a terrible time for me to quit smoking"

Well I am having that sort of week. I am a teacher and I just found out I am laid off in 2 weeks! Music teachers get laid off ALL the time but February? Anyhow I am doing ok considering but yesterday was a weird day and I went ahead and had a couple of glasses of wine in spite of the plan to hold off til 145. Today I am back on track and I didn't let food or excercise slip so alls well.

Ironically, I am glad I started working out a few days ago because I feel much more balanced. It gives me something productive to do and I suppose I will have more time on my hands soon. In the mean time I am a bit whacked out though.

I hear you about caffiene dagmar. I too get hungry mid afternoon and I apply the same high protien strategy most of the time and it works well. Occasionally I have to have something sweet and so I do fruit and unsweetened lowfat yoghurt which I seem to like almost better than sugary foods (amazingly enough).

Re the soft drinks, they lost their appeal to me years ago. I have a thing for tea and coffee though. I do coffee without sugar (a little milk) and tea I usually sweeten with I drop of mapley syrup and I only have that now and then mostly I just drink water.

Hiker~I'm so sorry about you being laid off. I didn't know you were a music teacher. Public school, I assume? What grades? I ask because my DD is in college pursuing a degree in music education (and computer science--double major). What instruments do you play/teach?

Thanks Allison. I am currently teaching 5-8 band I have worked at the high school level but I have small children and the time commitment was ridiculous though I found the job to be much more secure (anything that effects high school football is usually last on the chopping block as it were).

But good news the light at the end of the tunnel I stepped on the scale and I am down a whopping 2 lbs. Probably mostly water weight but I am going to take it. I needed a boost today. Yay for that. Where does your daughter study?
