Diet Coke Freedom

I have been diet coke free since Sunday morning!!! :) I still feel achy but my headache is gone at least. Poor Brian is trying to give up coffee and caffeine and is seriously jonesing poor guy. But we'll be better off.

We actually had a great food day.

Breakfast - fruit and english muffins
Lunch - A soup I made with vegetarian broth, sauteed onions and mushrooms, tofu shirtaki and seasonings. We had it with veggies on the side. The girls ate it too but they like mushrooms and the onion soup at Japanese Steak Houses so it was similar.
Dinner - Eggplant cutlets, whole grain pasta and marinara sauce.

For snacks Brian make a really good smoothie with almond milk, flax seed and peaches. So besides that our snacks today were pretzels, carrots and fruit.

Oh and the girls had Rice Dream ice cream tonight. :) That was a hit. The Almond Milk they didn't like but that's ok.

I so wish I could get off Dr. Peppers. I've been trying to drink water everytime Ellie eats, but out of the 8x/day, I think I've managed one glass. I admire your discipline.

NO DIET COKE---I'm impressed!!!
I think it is wonderful what you all are doing. We have been waiting for Monday when school starts to start our healthy eating. Eddie and I both need to lose weight and if he gives up a kidney he will really have to eat better. I plan on cooking healthy dinners every night. If you know of a good cookbook or recipe pass it my way. I'm also going to go back to the gym regularly. It realy is just a whole lifestyle change that is necessary.
