Slow and steady wins the race

It’s only been 9 days without my precious…I mean coca cola. I’d really love to say that I don’t crave it anymore, but only my stories are fiction…this my friends is real life and after 9 days, it still sucks. I literally have to keep coke out of sight out of mind. I’m waiting for the magical tipping point where I think, “wow, I don’t even want one anymore?”….does that ever happen. Guess I’m about to find out.  The good news I crave carbs less like pasta, chips, cookies…damn, I’ve just made myself hungry. BUT I crave sugar like chocolate and coke of course….they say 21 days for sugar to leave the body…we’ll see if I can make it that long…

The weight loss…well, I lost 2 lbs…if I’m being honest in the past it would have been, “2 lbs is nothing, guess it’s not working..pop the top of a coke”, but I’m trying very hard to keep the mentality that slow and steady wins the race.

Kind of like writing. I’ve never been the type of person who has a word number goal each day/week, etc…instead I’d give anything for more time to write. So I sort of binge write when I get the chance and in the meantime I will literally text, email and jot down anything that comes to me during the work day, commute, etc so I don’t forget once I do get the chance to write. Slow and steady, the book is coming along…I’d rather it be good than fast and yet I still envy authors whose very job it is to write. Maybe someday I’ll get there. But in the meantime, I will continue to write when I can and not shove my face full of sugary treats….
