Day 1 on the newest new plan went very, very well.Â I managed to drink plenty of water, got a bit of exercise, and really controlled my eating.
I will confess, I did have one soda.Â I just didn’t want to start a new diet and have to deal with caffeine withdrawal.Â Oh well, one soda is better than a whole bottle of soda.Â I’ll slowly (but surely) kick-the-habit and be water-only by the end of the week.
Due to a work-related responsibility, I didn’t make it to the gym, but I did get some decent exercise.Â I walked a couple of miles around the neighborhood, worked up a good sweat – and felt great when I finished.
