Yesterday I drank my last diet soda...at least for the remainder of this challenge.
It's a little daunting to say I will never drink another diet soda...I am a sucker for diet sodas...diet mt. dew, diet dr. pepper, diet coke with lime/lemon, and diet a&w root beer...love them all.
I also recognize it's not good to be drinking them all. the. time.
I stopped drinking soda for several months once, and my energy levels were much more consistent, no ups and downs. I don't know why I started drinking it again..it's not the caffeine I crave, it's the flavor...especially when I'm eating pizza or burgers...ohh, yet another weakness of mine.
So here's to Day 1 of no more soda.
On a side note, amazingly, me and my 3 year old have gone through a whole bag of Dole lettuce in the last 24 hours between the two of us. I love salads now and I'm surprised that she has recently started loving them too. I remember the days when I would buy a bag and we'd be lucky to go through it before it spoiled.
One of my favorite salads is topped with chicken, slivered almonds, chopped apple, and pomegranate infused craisins with raspberry dressing. Yum!
