This weekend is the Lakeland Artisan Fair in Lakeland, FL. Come by and say hi if you're in the area. It looks like a great little event with music and handcrafts.
Last week I sewed non-stop for the rodeo event, this week I've taken it easy and made a few bows and bow ties. Hopefully that won't bite me in the rear later ... I have visions of getting to the show this weekend and being completely unprepared. But relaxed. All's well.
I've decided to give up Diet Coke. No biggie, right? Except that it's all I drink. I don't like anything else. At all. Not even a little bit. I started drinking Diet Coke when I was about 16 and never looked back. That was a very long time ago.
Week 1 I cut my consumption of the stuff in half. Easy peasy. Really, I started drinking hot water with lemon in the morning and ice water throughout the day and it's not as bad as I thought it would be. In fact, it's ok. I'm now in Week 2 and was almost done with it completely when a few days of really bad headaches hit and I caved. The funny thing, though, was that the headaches made me mad. Mad at the Diet Coke. Mad enough to be happy to be giving it up.
So far I'm not feeling great and happy for giving it up, but I know even if I feel the same now in the long run it's a very wise move.
Have you ever broken a tough habit? How did you do it and how did it go?
