What is there to say about day four? Well, I found myself drinking more water than I usually drink, and that surprised me a bit. Drinking more water made a little sick too, though. I think I’ll have to rethink how much water I drink at a time.

I still haven’t had any sugary drinks. But I have been drinking espresso and water — I’m so glad Americanos have zero grams of sugar. I almost slipped up today at Starbucks when I ordered a Vanilla Latte, but I quickly changed my order when I remembered my week-long pledge. I’m proud of students for giving up sugary drinks for a week. They’re all doing so well! We have four more days to go!
