The Diet Coke Monster Rears Its Ugly Head

9 Mar

By 3 o’clock today, I had a kickin’ caffeine headache. I made hot tea this morning, and it just tasted so funky, that I poured most of it out. I was aching for my post-lunch diet coke today. I stopped by Starbucks on the way home and got a tall iced coffee. I tried using Raw Sugar, but that tasted like butt, so I added a Splenda. I’m trying to wean myself off of artificial sugars too. I think I’m going to swing by Publix and pick up a box of Truvia. I tried it the other day at Brandon’s parent’s house and it wasn’t half bad. Zero calorie natural sweetener? I’m down.

In other news, acne systems hate my skin (or vice versa). Proactiv has made my skin dry and flaky, and I’m starting to get nervous about my skin on the wedding day. Any suggestions? I’m already on the pill, and I’ve already tried Acne Free. I really am broke and can’t afford to shell out another $20-30 on something that DOESN’T work.

Tonight, dinner is Chili! Yum-o! I made it with tomato puree, light red kidney beans and Boca Soy crumbles. It smells delicious!

    Good luck with the Diet Coke monster! It took me a good month to kick that habit, I was up to about 3/day!

    when my skin starts acting up, I drink TONS of water, get a lot of sleep, and take zinc and vitamin C. also, make sure your pillowcase/towels are clean.nothing groundbreaking, I know, but it might help!
