I think it was during the interview process that someone asked what my hardest sacrifice would be during this journey. I think I responded travel or something which is very true as I LOVE to travel. But as I started looking at things and where I could cut back, I found the hardest one – Coke.
I am hands down a Coca Cola addict. I don’t drink water, I drink Coke. I drink a Coke when I get up in the morning and then pretty much constantly have them in my hand throughout the day.
I quit Sunday.
The way I figure it, cutting soda out of my diet will take a good $30 off our weekly grocery bill. Whether it’s a 12 pack at the grocery store, two taller ones at 7-11 (2 for $2,) or two 2 liters for $3. It adds up quickly especially when it’s a constant. Not to mention the health factor, which a whole different aspect.
I am determined. But right now, it feels like a bunch of little people jumping around in my head with pitchforks and sledgehammers!
So raising my glass of lemon water to you as I cheer myself on in this endeavor. Once the headaches reside I’m sure more great ideas will come to mind to speed this process along.
