I gave up soda for good in early February. I did a reset in January and didn't have soda for 28 days. I drank a lot of water. In February, I finally decided to give soda a go. I drank a few sips and it just didn't taste right to me anymore. This was HUGE. I have been drinking soda since I was a small child! I never thought I'd be able to give up, "The nectar of the Gods" as I was known to call Coca Cola! Well, after drinking that little bit, I felt all out of sorts and bloated. I don't have that when I drink water! I knew right then that I didn't need soda. I was a bit worried about water with certain foods. (PIZZA!) I had pizza and drank water and it was just fine. I'm a happy camper! I don't need soda. It's just empty calories and it's not good for me! I do need my caffeine though! Caffeine withdrawal is NOT a nice thing. I already love coffee and Starbucks, so coffee is my go to.
I have a Keurig (I love that thing!) and I make myself a fresh cup everyday. Sometimes two cups. It is so good and so much better for me than soda! Plus, it's a hell of a lot less calories. I use a creamer that is 10 calories per little cup. I use that and honey. I am trying to cut out added sugar completely. I really like my coffee with honey. It's perfectly sweet and it's good! I wish more places had honey instead of sugar or those nasty artificial sweeteners.
A friend needed me to ride with her to the hospital in Lynchburg Virginia. About an hour and a half trip. I usually have my coffee with lunch everyday and it wasn't lunch time yet, but I wanted coffee! lol She stopped at the Pilot gas station to fill up and we went in and I looked to see if they had honey. They did! Actually, they had a really nice coffee station. They had plenty of different kinds of creamers too! I had my coffee and was in a much better mood. :P We drove all the way up there. We get out of her car and head into the hospital and she gets a text on her phone. The person we are there to see is now home. ~_~; I was laughing so hard in the parking lot I almost fell down. We drove back through Lynchburg and ate lunch at O'Charley's. The food was great, but the service was not! My friend treated me to lunch for going with her. We ended up stopping by the person's house on the way home.
Anyway, this got on a weird tangent and I started out talking about coffee! Yeah, this blog is aptly named. What the Junk?! INDEED! :p
