When I was pregnant with my first son, I was unbearably nauseous and dizzy the first 2-3 months. It was constant dizziness that wouldn't go away, and I would have to lie down in bed without moving. One Saturday afternoon we decided to go to Cheesecake Factory for lunch. I still wasn't feeling well, but I really wanted to get out and begin exploring the city.
As we sat inside, I was still completely miserable, and my husband suggested I order a coke. As soon as I did, my dizziness started to lessen, and my nausea was still there but more manageable.
And that became my love affair with coke. It might just be a placebo affect, but I definitely turn to it when I have a headache, or feel dizzy. Or if I am in need of encouragement to clean the house or begin dinner.
I buy the 90 calorie cans, and on a good day I will have one can, and on a really bad day I will drink three. I also always have a few of the mexican coke in the glass bottles in the fridge for those days when I really need a boost of energy.
I am excited for this week's challenge. I know Coke can't be good for the body considering it can be used to clean the corrosion on your car battery. But I still reach for one to get me through the day. And while I only drink the 90 calorie cans, I still could do better by not drinking it at all. So, I am excited to see how my body feels after a week of only water drinking!
