habit, shmabit

i like soda.  i do, who doesn't? i used to drink tons of the stuff in high school, but then some how i limited myself to one a day, usually at lunch. then sometimes i'd break my rule and have another with dinner (pizza) or popcorn.  then, my brother-in-law (i should just say brother, i mean he's been around more than not) started working in the back office.  he stocked our fridge with coke, vanilla coke, sprite, and MOUNTAIN DEW!  i never was a dew drinker, but once the smooth, really smooth citrus ran down my throat...i was hooked!  i would be in such a hurry i would never eat breakfast, but that's ok because i had the champion of breakfasts at work.  DEW and POWDERED DOUGHNUTS (from Jade's desk)!  It was dreamy.  Then I would follow up with a coke at lunch and possibly another DEW or vanilla coke in the afternoon.  It was NOT good.  My skin is crap and i just felt bad, but oh so good at the same time.  When my face broke out the worst it ever has, I knew I had to do something.  So I ordered Proactiv and cut out SODA!  Yeah, i did it.  No more of this sweet candy!

So far so good.  It's been almost a week.  I've had Sprite once and a coke once, but I'm blaming kylie.  We shared a drink at Wendy's and he didn't know I was cutting out soda.  So I must always drink when I eat so I drank it.  Surprisingly, I've not had headaches or withdraws.  I still get a craving for an ice cold vanilla coke, but i'm standing strong.  I've seen vast improvements in my skin and I don't feel tired.  I don't think I'll ever be an absolutely no soda person, but i'm not going to be a soda/day person again.  I will always drink it with pizza and popcorn, no one will take that away from me!  It's a habit change. i seriously have to stop and  think about ordering water or tea vs. rolling "with a coke"  off my tongue when i'm ordering out. So instead of soda, i've been drinking this.
 
and LOTS of it.  i feel so clean now! haha, so ridiculous, haha.  but really i can tell a huge difference!  so i challenge you, if soda is your friend, try to replace at least one if not more a day with a big glass of water.  it's best served cold on ice!

i see where this is goin.....you and annie, not drinkin soda anymore, gonna stop having it in your fridges and then BAM! abbie drinks no more soda either. simply not fair. how am i gonna drink soda when the two people that always buy it for me stop. this is just ridiculous! (but good job, i'm proud of ya)

Vintage Sassy said...

I can't tell you how many times I've tried to give up soda. I only last about 2 days. I love diet Dr. Pepper and you are right, I was never a Mountain Dew girl, but I tried a diet Mountain Dew and it was goooood!!

Good for you!!!

just_me_tiff said...

LOL at Abbie! You should stop too! Kolby and I only drink sprite every once in a while...we gave up the dark sodas long ago and Kolby lost about 35 lbs from that alone!
Anyway, I really meant to comment on your "best served cold" in reference to water...I disagree! I love room temperature/warm water YUM :)

Janie Fox said...

i don't do dew... i do drink one diet rite a day it is supposed to be the healthiest diet soda there is ... healthy diet soda is probably an oxymoron but i gave up caffeine so i get credit for that!!

Annie @ The House That Jade Built said...

I'm doing good too! I had 2 sprites & one diet at the movies in the past 2 weeks! No withdraws here either! I do crave a good ice cold diet coke though - damn I miss them!

Nicky said...

I don't buy soda, but you're right about having it with pizza and popcorn! Otherwise, I really only drink it if I'm getting fast food. I don't really like fast-food-tea or the lemonade. But I have to agree with Tiffany...water is best served room temperature! ;o)

Jillian said...

I don't like soda! never have :)
So luckily it's not a challenge for me...
BUT I do love a huge glass of ice cold water!
