Default Mini challenges -Alex

Joining in on the mini-challenges idea .....

Have been a coke zero fan for some time, but as we are moving in spring/summer down here not sure its the time to quit.

This week's challenge:

Get back on the Eat-stop-Eat system - 2 fasts a week
Drink water from my carry bottle (record on fitbit keep myself honest)
Zero coke is allowed but only after Tea or water first.

Zero Coke Zero!

ZCZ!

It's becoming quite a theme in this contest.

Stay strong, Alex.

How's the no coke zero going? I love that stuff, but know that it causes weird things to happen to my brain. I've not had any for a while. I like the sparkling waters with no sweetners. Sometimes I add other stuff to them with some stevia.

Sorry went a bit AWOL from TT members there .... took some time out to sit down & think what is important & where do i want to spend my energy.

But back to coke zero, have not been able to drop it, bit like smoking you have to really want it, don't really see the ill effects, but do keep my self to one can, helps keep my focus at work & nothing else comes near.

This week/next weeks thing has been no bread for lunch
so been doing the Fruit/yoghurt for lunch break + Homemade Apple/walnut bran mini muffins for mid morning ( am one of those people need to front load my day with food, end of day don't eat much)

Welcome back, stay strong, and while I want to agree with you on the Coke Zero thing, especially at just one a day, it's still a good challenge to push yourself to go without ... even 1-2 times per week... trying some alternatives, like Green Tea.

I never like to be dependent on anything. That's how I look at it.

Anti-fragile, as Nicholas Taleb would say.

Push on and stay strong!

Craig

Funnily enough zero coke is not as prominent on the weekend, mainly tea drinker then, sorry cannot do the green tea, I have tried but it really is not my cuppa

Food is back on rack good breakfasts,lunch,dinners with lots of fruit veg ... just need to work on the snacks & eliminating the choc ( think those cravings are more magnesium thing)

so mini challenge for this week is to try the almonds first before thinking I need a sweet snack.
