Just Say No!

It's been awhile

Okay, so it's been a little while since I've posted, but yeah. I'm not gonna say I quit soda because that woiuld be a lie, but I have tapered down. Originally, I started this blog on me quitting soda to benefit my health. For any type of addict, caffeiene included, going cold turkey is not easy. While I have cheaed a few times, and now have a soda occasionally, I still mostly stick to water. I have been keeping up with the P90X workouts and can get through without having to stop every five minutes, and overall I feel better. I feel sad that I couldn't just quit like I originally wanted to, but I guess it's like they say, "everything in moderation."

P90X is the devil

Ok so I know this blog has been about quitting soda and that's great and all, but I think we can all agree it's getting a little old. Other than my rum and coke stint I have basically been soda-less not caffiene-less because I would kill someone, for about 2 months. I did this because I want to get healthy and to get people (like my health nut boyfriend) off my back. I have a new topic to discuss. Has anyone ever tried P90X? I'm in the beginning stages and let me just say I have never felt so abused by a work out ever lol. My whole body hurts, I literally feel like an old person. I'm sure it'll be worth it but seriously, it's not just me right!? You all or some of you have felt or are feeling my pain? Side note don't eat and then work out... bad idea.

Rum and Coke

 It's a favorite drink of alcoholics, "of-agers", and teens alike. Mostly, because it's easy access and well, it does the job. Rum and coke or Captain and Coke, the fall back choice. My question is, if I quit soda does that mean this alcoholic beverage too? I mean technically it's just a little bit and it's more or less for coloring and taste right? If this is of standard to quitting soda then great! If not what other rum drinks are just as easy to make and taste just as great? Now I'm not an alcoholic, but I like my beverage jut as much as everyone else. So what do you all think... should I get a little captain in me!?

Oops I did it again!

I'm so bummed out with myself. This Wednesday after school I came home and went right into my fridge and what is the first thing I see? Yeah, my mom had two 2 liters of Wild Cherry Pepsi and Orange Soda just sitting  in there waiting for me. It's like putting a Christmas turkey in front of a starving person and saying "don't eat it." So with some sort of unconscious effort on my part I grab the Pepsi, pour it into a glass, and go to town like I used to so many times before. I was halfway through my glass when I stopped and aloud yelled "Shit!" I automatically had realized what I'd done. My body so used to doing this same action thousands of times before just naturally went for it. Note to self, tell mom to either A.) stop buying me soda or B.) put it out of my reach and eyesight. Funny how I have to go back to being like a toddler in order to trust myself to follow through with this whole quitting thing.

I miss soda.

Ok, so if you didn't know I'm addicted to soda. No not just addicted, I'm a soda junkie. On a good day I usually consume 5 to 6 of those delicious carbonated beverages. My favorite? Cherry coke. Nothing beats the delicious taste of an ice cold coke bursting with cherry flavor after a long day. If I'm so in love with soda why am I quitting? Well just because I love soda doesn't mean it loves me. In fact, it hates me so much that it's beginning to eat away at the lining of my stomach. Or so the doctor tells me. So my boyfriend along with close friends are trying to help me overcome this addiction, and yes it is an addiction. No I may not be doing drugs and getting wasted or smoking but, did you know that caffeine is just as addicting as the world's leading drugs. Alright maybe not as severe but still pretty addicting and pretty hard to go cold turkey. Speaking of cold turkey, this is my 25th day, or would have been without soda, if I didn't sneak a cherry coke (a small one) at Quedoba last night. Hey don't judge me, I'm trying.
