Diet Coke, The Final Frontier!

Tomorrow is weigh in day, Yay!  I really am very excited, I know there's going to be a loss, I just know it.

The Meloxicam I was taking for my shoulder ended up giving me a migraine and turned me into an insomniac. I've quit taking it and am going to get a cortisone shot on the 3rd.  I need to sleep and for the first time this week I am legitimately tired.  I've been getting 3-5 hours of dozing for the last few days.  I pray tonight will be at least 8 of uninterrupted sleep.

My brother is coming down from Canada and will be staying for only 2 days but I'm planning on showing him around, maybe take him geocaching or hiking in the mountains.

Today was the county fair, we had a blast it was hot and I was basically on my feet for 4 hours.  When I wasn't walking I would carry the baby and sway side to side, or lift her. I can't wait to tell her that when she was a baby mommy used her as a piece of exercise equipment.

I don't feel too bad about the food.  I ate half a small hamburger and a few fries as well as a ball of cotton candy and the whipped cream and strawberries off of a piece of strawberry short cake.  I drank a ton of water.  I love those trailer coolers of water that you see at events these days it's so much nicer than having to buy a bottle.  I refilled my 24 oz water bottle about 4 times, but I was also sharing.

My oldest always ends up throwing up or getting a headache and being ill when we go to events or do "fun" things.  So today I stayed on her and made her drink 4 oz of water every hour and didn't let her have any soda or fried sweets.  Sorry funnel cake man, it was great while it lasted! Low and behold she made it through the day with her lunch in her stomach and a smile on her face, even considering all the rides she went on.

I stuck to my goals this week, except for one.... I continued to drink at least 10 cans of diet coke a day.  So this evening I drank my official last Diet Coke ever.  The fridge has no Diet Coke in it, I will not be going and buying any either.  I have caffeine pills for alertness that I bought on a road trip a few years ago and I will take one if I find myself getting a caffeine headache, which is likely.  I will officially be viceless, wish me luck!!
