I do not like driving. Road trips just aren’t for me. I just want to be there as fast as possible without having to spend hour upon hour staring straight ahead at basically the same things over and over again. Of course, that doesn’t happen. Being a military family, road trips are a constant in our lives. We move from station to station, most of the time with two cars, so road trips are simply something we have to do.
If you are like me, countdowns become a part of the road trips. We count down the miles, the hours, and the number of stops we are going to have to make. We count down the number of big cities and states we are going to have to drive through. It’s not terribly exciting, it’s actually kind of mundane, but there is a few good moments, and one of them is when we hit the half way point.
The half way point, the middle, the top of the mountain, or the climax is and exciting moment. It’s that time when we can look at the road, the odometer and the clock and know that we have gone further than we now have to go. We have done more than the road trip requires. That’s a good feeling, and after lunch yesterday on Day 11 it was exactly how I felt.
That’s right, I am now half way through the 21 day sugar detox. I feel great. I have lost some weight, and what’s better is that I know if I really want something I can make it happen. I can avoid fast food and soda for as long as I want. I can go without popcorn at the movie theater if I need to. I don’t have to ruin my healthy life choices by drinking and eating horribly while at an ice cream social or some other event. That’s a good thing to know. Go ME!!!
