About 9 years ago, through a series of events, I quit drinking AS MUCH (key words there) pop. Now I don't know if that is a grammatically correct way to say it or not, but I just quit "living on" Dr. Pepper, and Pepsi. Don't know why...I just loved the stuff. But I realized that it was not good for me and cut WAY back...sometimes not drinking any for extended periods, other times drinking very little. Around here, many times days are measured in how many days it's been since drinking pop.
During the season of lent the "thing" my sons and I would generally give up?...yep, pop! Pop that's what we call it in our family. It's never been an issue with Mr. Romantic Porch. He can take it or leave it. But I crave it! Unless we are entertaining guests, I don't buy it anymore for our home. If we have it we have to go somewhere to get it. That way it is an effort to indulge!
I'm so proud! Both of our sons early this year quit drinking pop. All on their own they started drinking water. One son does have it occasionally, but the other one is drinking exclusively water. We never told them to do such a thing. We've just tried across these 9 years or so to make healthy choices, and it is so neat to see them grasp the concept too.
OK, so now you know way more about us than you asked for, but there it is...today's healthy living posting!
