On January 10th 2018 I finally made the push to ….. stop drinking soda (or pop if you incorrectly call it that). It was a tough journey to build up enough confidence in myself to drop the empty calorie habit, but worthwhile.
My friend Jason ultimately helped the most in discussing with me that it’s not so hard to drop soda if you can get past the first few weeks. In my health journey I’ve found that doing lots of dieting, cutting out everything at once doesn’t work for me. It’s been easier to drop something for a month or two, then I can move onto dropping another item from my diet when I’m ready to take on that additional challenge.
So I’ll continue to kick the soda can down the road for another year and enjoy shielding myself from riding the sugary energy roller coaster.
