Well Color Me…..

My ramblings on the world in general and my life in particular

…A Crystal Light Addict


Hi my name is Tracie, and I am a Crystal Light addict.  It’s true, I am.  I’ve tried to justify it by saying that it mean i’m getting my water in, but the truth is, I am drinking far too much of the stuff.

So I have made a decision.  I am trying to wean myself off of crystal light.  I’ve started by using half a packet to my water, and by the end of next week, I’m hoping it will be a quarter packet.  The thing is, I HATE water, so it’s going to be a real struggle.

I’m doing this in conjunction to doing a modified Atkins type of diet.  Bread and pasta are gone, as are most potatoes, though I did have a baked potato the other day.  I think totally eliminating carbs will be too difficult and will result in my “cheating” too much, or giving up.  So I’ve decided to really limit my carb intake, but if I crave the occasionaly nummy treat, I’ll go for it.

Next up, adding movement to my life, though that’s going to be more of a challenge – unless we get some real spring weather!  Wish me luck
