Some small wins..

by nc on March 9, 2010 · 3 comments

So I’ve been trying to have some wins in life.. and in the last weeks, I’ve managed to make a few, albeit small ones. I figured I’d post these publicly so all my friends, enemies, and random haters on the ‘net can mock me mercilessly if necessary. ;)

  • No drive-thru since 2/18. I apologize to my local McDonalds for putting them out of business.
  • No non-frozen/non-homemade pizza since 2/19!
  • For the last two weeks, I’ve been successfully getting up by the time I target (~6:30 on work days, and whatever time I need to be up on weekends) a majority of the days.
  • For the last two weeks, I’ve been averaging two cans or less of sugary caffeinated goodness, down from ~6-8 cans (I know, I know!) I’ve discovered my addiction is caffeine and not the cola itself – so coffee and the occasional 200mg “evil” booster.
  • For the last two to three weeks, I’ve been getting the pups out for a walk whenever I need to (IE, when Tiff, Kai and I are going to be out of the house) – next up, at least once a day, every day

I know, nothing major at all – but hey, small steps, right? :)

Mucho congrats on the progress on the caffeine front. ;-)
I always struggle with that ;-)

I still believe in caffeine – just alternate sources of caffeine. ;)

“I always struggle with that”

As if your half a can of cola a day will amount to anything bad… ;-)

Congrats on the small wins Nate! Soon you will be like Coolleen, and just never sleep. Then by default, you will be up early. :-)
