Starbucks latte withdrawal, day two (and a change of rules)

Well, I've nearly survived day two without a Starbucks latte. YAY!! This morning I had to be at work an hour earlier than normal for our weekly telephone conference with New York, and I was soooooo tired I didn't think I would be able to survive today. But it looks like I have more willpower than I thought - yay!!!

However, I must announce a change in rules as of today. In yesterday's post I said that I would not set foot in a Starbucks for five days, but hereby that is changed to "I will not buy a Starbucks latte for five days." The reason for this change? I was starving this morning after our telephone conference ended, and because there isn't a convenience store within a distance from my office that it is "convenient" (despite being smack dab in the middle of Tokyo!) my only option for getting a snack was Starbucks. I was truly starving, so it was a matter of life or death.

Two days down, three to go. Tomorrow I think I'll bring my piggy bank (thank you, Mande, for the suggestion!) so I can see how much money I am saving. Might help me get through to Friday...
