D is for Diet Dr Pepper

This month I'm participating in the A to Z Challenge. My theme is indulgences. Today's letter is:


For D, I chose an item you probably weren't expecting!

Sure, I could have named my dog. After all, what's cuter than this face?


Spending time with her is definitely an indulgence. But this blog series is more about little things than big, big things like family, friends, and pets. So for "D," I've chosen my favorite daily caffeine indulgence:

I don't drink coffee. This is my morning pick-me-up. It also helps fill me up so I don't eat as much lunch.

What's your favorite way to get caffeine into your system every day?

  1. I don't drink coffee either and can relate to using a fluid to reduce my big lunch/snacking desires.

    I enjoy soda (Mountain Dew helped me through grad school), but drink more iced tea now since soda is not the best thing for me.

  2. Your dog is so cute! Mine, Angie, didn't go to DC so she won't show up in A to Z.. I drink coffee in the morning and after that usually just water. I used to drink a lot of diet Pepsi. Started substituting a glass of water for every other can and at some point I just stopped drinking the diet Pepsi.

  3. I should add that lunchtime is the only time I have soda at all, and just one. If I eat lunch out, I get a diet soda there. The rest of the time it's water flavored with Crystal Light. I have to have a little taste to my water! I know how unhealthy sodas are, but I don't really like coffee, and caffeinated Crystal Light in water doesn't help with the urge to have a big lunch.

  4. I like Diet Dr. Pepper as well. I seem to be really sensitive to caffeine lately, though, so I'm trying to lay off. It's hard.

  5. Ok I have to say awwwwww to the dog-so cute. I love animals. I don't drink cofee or pop but I can't do without my orange juice and soda water. I am not supposed to have sugar, caffeine or starch(I know..I cheat) so I love something with fizz hence the soda water-sparkly water:)

  6. Yes, caffeine can be a tough one to kick. I was told coffee is better for you than soda, so I tried to switch...but I gained weight because I was eating too much at lunch. I eat more when I drink water with my meal--even with liquid water enhancer drops in it. The Diet DP seems to really help take the pounds off...but, of course, it's not a diet plan in itself!

  7. Um, I don't do caffeine, at all. I do cheese, and occasionally sugar. Yup.

  8. I don't think of my morning pick me up as coffee, more like chocolate. It's mocha coffee. I do like Dr. Pepper, though. It's a yummy, reliable way to start tackling the day. It's also a fun D post.

    Cheers,

  9. Such a cute pooch! Yes, I have a coffee addiction, but always start out with tea first.

  10. To mis-quote a certain brilliant Muppet - C is for Coffee, that's good enough for me!!! ;) I used to be a big diet coke drinker, but that was years ago. Now I almost never drink soda. Just buckets of coffee...

  11. If I have a Starbucks frappucino at home, it's always enhanced with a little Hershey's Syrup! I love Starbucks light caramel frappucino. Now that it's getting warm, I may have to replace my diet soda with that...

  12. Had to laugh. I stock up on Dr. Pepper whenever my daughter visits. Never was much of a fan myself. I drink a lot of coffee though!

  13. I drink hot tea with no sugar and milk. Don't do pop. Love coffee but it tends to upset my stomach.

  14. Are you sure we weren't separated at birth...doggies and Diet Dr. Pepper...after chocolate! Love, love, love. Your A to Z is so much fun!

  15. Sounds like it, Lisa! I know...I thought about focusing on things that make me happy. :-)

  16. Not a coffee person, either. Diet Coke is how I get my caffeine each day.

  19. I love Diet Coke any time of day, but I've never tried Dr. Pepper.

  20. I don't like soft drinks such as Dr Pepper or Coke. (Do you use that word where you live? Probably not!) But I do enjoy coffee, just a couple each day.
