As good as it might be, Crystal Light is not as good as Coca-Cola

Yesterday I had a coke during lunch and a Costco churro two hours later. You're all, "Natalie, that is nothing to blog about?" And I'm all, "That is a dangerous amount of sugar consumed in 2 short hours. So, it totally is." Because by 3:30 I was seriously considering crawling under my desk, curling up in the fetal position and taking a nap. But apparently that is frowned upon at Agency X. Who knew?

The time has yet again come to stop drinking coca cola. I know. You are probably thinking, "didn't you go off it like a year ago. Um, and like 3 months ago?" And to that I would say yes. Clearly, I have a problem with commitment.

This is where co-worker Jami enters. Like me, she is a coca cola addict. Her addiction comes in the form of Diet Coke. We've bonded over our trips to Wendy's for extra-large coca cola goodness and salty french fries. These are the kinds of friends I like. She also watches trashy reality tv. So, pretty much she is my best friend.

Anyway, we decided that together, we could kick our addiction. And just in case our "promise to not drink" didn't work, we have to pay each other $5 for every coke/diet coke we drink. Money bags I am not. So, no coke for me. Except for today at the Utah game. We both decided that was a freebie.

And as a substitute for our afternoon fixes, we made a pitcher of Raspberry Ice Crystal Light.

The liquid in this is in fact, Raspberry Ice Crystal Light

Wish us luck. Wait, wish me luck. Not her. I could use extra cash. Mama needs some new boots for winter.

Not coke. Sad.

Wait a minute. When you mentioned that you were going to have a Coke at the U game today, I am sure you assumed that your Dad would foot the bill and pay for it. Well maybe he may decide to help you kick the habit and not oblige.

My dad doesn't think that way. I'm his baby girl so he pretty much gives me anything I want. ;)

Sad I've been thinking of kicking the habit myself . . .I even bought the crystal light but it's been sitting in my cupboard for at least two weeks:)

Grape Gatorade G2. I'm obsessed with it. Low-cal and full of electrolyte goodness...

I had to cut candy. I now only indulge occasionally not like a 1lb bag of m&ms a day like before but Diet Coke I am quite sure I could never give up!
