James and I have made a pact: starting today, with the exception of Mommy water (plain carbonated water that I love with Sonic ice & lemon), our life is a fizz-free zone. Not even...gasp!...beer. We're both quitting cokes and all things fizzy and calorie-laden. He's a man, so he'll decide today to quit cokes and by this evening his 6-pack will be reemerging. My motivation? Well, cutting out those calories is a big one. My other motivation? Over at Today's Housewife, they challenged us to make one small change this month, and to be purposeful in bringing about that change in our lives every day this month. I think that getting healthier is a huge change that I need to make, but since it's me, I need to take baby steps. Cutting out cokes is both a baby step and a huge step, so it just feels right for that to be "my change."
Wish me luck! It'll probably be fine until we have tacos or something else that I don't like to eat without a coke or beer...or, you know, until tonight when we sit down to watch "Mad Men" and I'd like a beer. Or, you know, until lunch when we run errands and I'd like a Sonic coke. Who am I kidding? It ain't gonna be easy. But it's way worth it, so I'm all in!
