Don't give me no tea, no tea...is someone out there singing with me? (Come on Jenni, I know you are! :) That really didn't come out of nowhere, I promise! Stop the presses, I, lover of all things carbonated, have given up pop. For good. Completely. Cold turkey. See ya, wouldn't wanna be ya! Now, to some of you, this may not be a big deal, for me, it totally is. I have had a life long love affair with pop. In high school and college, I drank 2 or 3 pepsi's a day. (Gag me, right?) The last couple of years, it has mostly been Diet and only one a day. I have tried several times to stop drinking it completely, but I just have not had the willpower. The last few weeks, it has become Diet Mt. Dew that I am addicted to. This week however, it just has not tasted good, I was just using it to get my caffeine fix. Why would I drink something if I don't enjoy it and it is doing my body ABSOLUTELY NO GOOD? (Sorry for shouting!) So yesterday I decided that was it. No matter how many hours a week I spend at the gym, or how many salads I eat instead of burgers, or veggies instead of french fries, I don't think I will ever truly feel healthy when I am still drinking pop. Then I decided to compare it to McDonalds. Here is a little known fact for you...I have not eaten McDonalds in THREE years! Not one stinking fry people! That's huge, I LOVED McDonalds. The last time I had it was when my grandpa was in the hospital in February of 2008. Then I just decided no more. Now I can hardly even drive past a McDonalds without gagging. It stinks so bad! So to wrap up this ridiculous long paragraph about this subject, I'm just done. And I have told my hubby, and a friend, and now all of you. Now I feel like I have someone to be accountable to besides just myself. Whew!
On to other random topics...
Mother nature is not nice! We had temps in the 60's last week and it was heaven! So amazing! This week? Back to 20's and 30's. Grr!! Today, 4 to 6 inches of snow? Seriously? You witch! Welcome to Iowa!
The bright spot in this snowy, cold day? My two new pairs of high heels that were at my door when I got home! I will snap a picture of them in the daylight soon! I have decided I am going to do all my shopping online now. It was delightful to order 4 pairs of dress pants and 2 pairs of shoes in the comfort of my living room!
Have a great day!!
