Saying noda to soda and drop the pop.

Another goal I'm trying to set is to give up soda, coke, pop, etc. The reason I'm looking into it is that there is no real nutritional value, and it's really expensive. Think about go to a restaurant for lunch, and soda is anywhere from $1.50-$3. For awhile I was drinking two 20-oz bottles of Diet Pepsi a day. That cost me about $3/day, over $20/week, and almost $100/month! I can think of a lot of other things I'd like to spend my money on, like this dress here:

Thank you Jess for sharing in your blog, it is gorgeous!)

In March I went quite awhile with out having soda. One weekend I was working at the bar and had a total Pepsi binge because we ran out of iced tea. I felt awful the next couple days. I didn't have more than two all week after, but on Easter Sunday I had a Diet Squirt. I haven't had one since.

I'm not going to say that I will never have one again, but the longer I can hold off the better. I will treat myself here and there, but anytime I have one after a hiatus I feel gross. When I'm not in the beer mood, I'll have my Three-Olives Cherry Vodka with Diet Pepsi, when I'm wasted and want Hardees breakfast I'll get my Dr. Pepper. I think if I tell myself I can't have something, it makes me want it more. If I say, "Hey, feel free to enjoy it whenever you please," it wont be as appealing.

So here is to three days being soda sober, let's hope there are many more.

  1. I have never sat and taken the time to think about how much $$$ we have probably saved since giving up soda. It kinda makes sense how I've had a "little" extra money lying around. We totally cut it out of restaurant dining in general. We only buy diet soda from Trader Joe's ever so often... We just aim to not keep it in the fridge.

    I'm glad and flattered that you share my swooning over the dress!!!
