I'm failing... and Back That Azz Up Friday!

So I haven't mentioned this here yet, but last Tuesday I gave up Coke. I was drinking one in class and after I finished I just decided that was it for now. I have a serious addiction to Coke/caffeine. I have at least one Coke a day if not two. I know, I know. It's terrible for me but I can't help it, it's my vice.

So last week I "gave it up". Then on Friday, we went to Bojangles. Without even thinking about it, I got a a Dr. Pepper. After a few sips I freaked out because I had messed up my goal without even realizing it. The on Saturday, I had one on purpose. Then it was back to water and juice only and that's all I've had since the Dr. Pepper on Saturday. But, I still haven't had a Coke and that's what I love.

Yesterday, I was craving one SO bad. All day long I considered buying one. I even went to the grocery store with the intentions of buying one, but I didn't. But I still want one. So by failing, I mean I suck at giving them up and I'm considering making them weekend-only, or something like that.

I also decided last week I was finally going to stop biting my nails once and for all. They're currently so chewed on that they hurt (gross, right?!). I suck at this, too. I did really well for over a week by keeping them painted, but then I picked all the polish off and had two bad days. And there went what little nails I had grown out.

So this weekend, it's back to square one to attempt to have pretty nails for graduation, wish me luck!

I'm also linking up with Whitney for the first time for Back That Azz Up Friday!


Enjoy! And Happy Friday!

Pop (or maybe you call it soda :P) is SOOO hard to quit. I used to drink Mt. Dew all. day. long. My addiction was SO bad. One day, I had enough and had to quit. The cravings were the worst part. For me, sometimes just a sip of it would help. Good luck!!

I gave up regular soft drinks in college and started drinking only diet and recently gave them up altogether. Trust me, it gets easier. The only time I'm allowed on is with a 'fast food' meal that includes a drink. If I drink one it must be from a fountain machine because I love the carbonation as much as anything.
I got a kick out of seeing Megan call it pop/soda. In the south we call it coke or drink, regardless of what it is.

I have mostly stopped drinking soda. Do you like black coffee? Once you get used to the taste, it isn't such a bad drink, since you aren't adding sugar.
