Happy Tuesday

4 Days and counting.....since I had a coke. I really want one - but I feel pretty good. I woke up this morning with the headache from H#%& - which had caffeine written all over it. But I took some Tylenol and drank a lemonade and felt a little better. Hopefully soon the cravings will stop. Hottie is doing pretty good too - I don't think he has had one since Saturday.

Tonight I am making Sweet and Sour Chicken & Fried Rice for dinner. I love Chinese food. I need some good easy-ish recipes for Chinese Food - if anyone has some please send them my way. I have always said that I was born in the wrong country - I should either be from China or Mexico - since those are my favorite foods.

I think we are going to need a new washer. My parents had an old one they were going to give us - and then I forgot all about it until my sister called and asked if she could give it to her in-laws because their's totally broke. Well now that one is gone and mine is not spinning all the time..... ugh.....

Good for you, I would love to give up caffeine, but I am not ready for the two day headache! If I ever decide to give it up I might need you for moral support!

Giving up soda is hard. I didn't have one for 2 1/2 months, but now I just have one every once and awhile and try to drink more water.

Good for you on going cold turkey! I love Crystal Light currently. LOVE it.

We've gone through both a washer and dryer in the last year. NOT fun, but we have been blessed with decent used ones to keep our costs down. Good luck!

Great job on the pop...that can be really tough.

One of our house favorites is a real simple Stir Fry:
1 bag frozen stir fry veggies
1 carton cubed extra-firm tofu
1/2 - 1 bottle of stir fry sauce (depending on how much you like)
cook it up and serve it over rice.

Thanks for visiting my blog! I think that giving up coke is a really hard thing. I know that for me it is one of my only real vices. I don't drink alcohol, tea, smoke or have illicit affairs! Drinking diet coke is about the only vice that isn't to high on the bad list!
I do know that any addiction is not good. If you are having headaches, perhaps your body really was addicted and it is a good thing. Good luck, maybe after your body gets through its withdrawel symptoms you could let yourself have a coke once a week when you go out with hubby.
Good luck!

It's hard breaking old habits but good for you. Keep it up! I love Chinese & Mexican food too. Maybe for your next TAT you could share your sweet n sour chicken & fried rice recipes? The only 'Chinese' type cooking I do is stir fry but I just wing it, don't have a recipe to follow - though I should find one. I also want to learn how to make sesame chicken like I order from the restaurants. Mmm...and now I'm wanting Chinese. ;) Have a great week!
