Today I had the day off from school, and the temptation to indulge in sugary drinks was more prevalent than ever. Seeing as how I had nothing to do today, I gorged myself with various junk foods. However, none of this with a sugary drink to match. It’s not as great to have a bag of Doritos and not indulge in a soda to match. I do indeed miss sugary drinks, but I’m not going to cheat now. I’ve gotten this far and am not giving up.

Today was day 5 of the week-long challenge, I believe. And it wasn’t too hot outside, so my desire to drink something was less. Although, sometimes I still feel like drinking a giant waterfall, I’ve learned to take in better amounts of water. Maybe because I’m drinking a bit more water, I’m staying awake a bit more even if I’m somewhat tired. I don’t feel any other major differences at this point.
