Day 41: Water, water everywhere

I have been drinking a lot of water throughout the day.  I usually have 3 bottled waters at work and have started ordering water with my meals.  It used to be that I would instinctively order a soft drink whenever we went out for dinner.  Not only am I being healthy, but I’m also saving a few bucks.  Our grocery bills have also significantly gone down since I drastically limited my sugar/snack food intake.  I used to buy a 24 pack of soft drink every week and sometimes twice in one week.  Add ice cream and cookies onto that grocery list, and I was spending a good amount of money on things that weren’t necessarily healthy.  My husband is also trying to eat healthier so we keep each other accountable. 

I did splurge on a small ice cream today at lunch but that was after a large salad with fruit and cottage cheese on the side.  This was mostly due to the fact that my lunch buddy decided to also get ice cream.  My sugar cravings really have declined though.  I did not even finish the ice cream which is unusual for me.  Another baby step towards my goal of being healthier.
