NO SODA!

Thanks for your suggestions on working out from my last post. I am sad to say I haven't done them yet, but I'm one step closer to actually doing them! I think by having this blog, and knowing that people are reading how lazy I am - I'm hoping will motivate me to exercise just so I can report to you that I did it. :)

My new goal - no soda. Soda is bad for you for so many reason. I go in cycles though. I don't drink soda for a year, then I'm addicted for a year, then I go off for a few months, and then I'm back on. I am coming from an "on" time. At work I get all the free soda I want (Heather knows what I'm talking about) so it's hard to not drink it at lunch every day.

But this week I decided to stop having it every day. At lunch I have been eating yummy salads and drinking orange juice. I am so proud of myself! I love salads, can't get enough of them. So I figured I might as well eat healthy at work when I have free salad mixins available. I am here to report that this week was successful!

Anyone want to go on the no soda diet with me? When Chris and I go out to eat - I will still get a soda. I'm not swearing it off forever. I just don't want to buy it and have it always available in the fridge, or drink a glass or 2 every day at work. Let's save it for special occasions. :) Who's in??!!

I usually say that most foods/drinks are fine in moderation, but soda is probably an exception! It's REALLY not good for you. I feel grateful that carbonation makes my stomach hurt, so I rarely ever drink soda (maybe a few times a year). So instead of trying to go off soda, I'll work on eating less candy at work! Like you said about free soda, free candy is all over my workplace, especially with Halloween coming up! I'll have to post about how that goes.. Good luck on the no soda diet!
