No More Soda...

Yesterday I drank my last diet 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 mt. dew, diet dr. pepper, diet coke with lime/lemon, and diet a&w root 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'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!


  1. I used to drink soda a lot, then snapple, then diet soda and Ive finally kicked it. For the most part. Once a month or less I may indulge in a diet soda- but I can say it will get easier!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I love craisins on salad- yum yum!

  2. Ohhh good luck, girl! I've been trying to wean myself off the diet sodas too and I'm not doing too well! Those $1 any size drinks at McD's always do me in! I have one right now! I wish you the best of luck, though, and maybe you'll inspire me to follow suit!

  3. That's a great sounding salad!!! You can DO IT on the no soda. YOU CAN DO IT!!!! I'm not a soda person, but I do like to drink my calories with other yummy drinks, so that's just as bad!
