I'm writing you this letter because I want to apologize for breaking a promise I made to you last weekend, or the one before that - I don't remember when it was. I made a promise to you that I would start working out and REALLY cut back on my addiction to Dr Pepper but I have failed entirely.
The first week went well and I only drank water Mon-Thurs. Then Friday came along and every time I opened the fridge and saw him starring at me (the Dr) my mouth would begin watering and tingling. I could almost feel the cold touch of the brown liquid on my tongue. I could feel it sliding down my throat and tingling as the carbonation burned my mouth because of it being so strong and fresh. I could feel the freezing cold and slightly sweaty can as I imagined holding it in my hand.
What is it about the Dr? Is it the maroon color of the can? The caffeine? The carbonation? The curvy white lettering spelling out "Dr Pepper" in almost a sexy and seductive way? What makes the Dr so appealing and so hard to turn away?
Every since that Friday things have gone way, way, WAY down hill for me. I haven't been working out and I've had about 62 Dr's a day. I know, I know, I said I was going to try to only have 1 or 2 a WEEK, but things have gotten just a LITTLE out of hand.
Please forgive me for deceiving you as you're probably busting your buns working out twice a day, thinking of me doing the same. We were supposed to be THERE for each other and I feel like I've let you down. Whatever you do, don't follow in my atrocious example.
To compensate for the loss of the last week of disaster, I promise to you that I'll cut down my Dr intake to only 37 Dr's a day. I promise that instead of forgetting to work out, I'll at least THINK about doing it. I promise to you that I'll change.
With love your favorite big sister, (oh come on..you know I am!)
