After resisting temptation all day on my day off yesterday, I was able to make it through the entire school day on Tuesday without having an urge to drink any sugary beverages. Maybe, that is because sugary beverages of any kind are not allowed in classrooms. Nonetheless, I was able to make it through the entire day without drinking a sugary beverage. Temptation did arise when I had a college meeting after school at a Starbucks, and I was offered a drink. Seeing many people around me drinking Pumpkin Spice Lattes was so heartbreaking. I instead opted for a Venti water, which looks odd in the realm of Starbucks where the size Venti is only used when you really really need that boost of coffee.

I think I’m getting used to not drinking sugary drinks. I do still miss Mocha Frappuccinos, but at the same time, I don’t. I think for the most part, I’m getting used to not really having sugary drinks, but I do miss them somewhat. If I can last this long, I might as well continue. However, I do have a hard time keeping up with self-made promises. I want to see how I continue doing.
