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
