I set a goal to rid myself of any soda for the entire month of August. Today is the last day of the month and I did pretty good. During the entire month I had a total of 8 oz of soda, a coke (my favorite). It was toward the middle of the month and I was at a bar with my guy. We decided to stop and have an after dinner drink. When asked what I wanted I stated a rum & coke (one of my normal drinks). I finished it off and then had another. Then it hit me, 2 sips into the second drink. !!! Crap! I messed up my goal.
Oh well. I didn't let that slip up deter me. I took it for what it was, a minor slip-up and set my mind to sticking to the goal for the rest of the month. I did it! I was successful. That one Wednesday night was the only time I took a sip of a carbonated soda the entire month of August. I know, I know the month is not over with yet, I have to get through this day. Just know that I'm not going to ruin it today!
I'm going to try my best to continue a soda free lifestyle and limit my intake. No, I'm not going to stop drinking them altogether, but I will limit it to no more than 1-2 per week (and hopefully none some weeks).
