So... on the subject of cheating. I told my husband about the soda. He really didn't mind. Really. He says it was more of an agreement and that I need to do what I need to do to function. He is honestly glad that I have been able to make it almost three months with just one tiny dose of caffeine.
To show how much he really doesn't mind, I got a 20oz soda and a HUGE Godiva bar for my birthday. Yum. I can't wait. Nothing says celebration like good chocolate.
