Saying Goodbye to...

As of today, September 1st 2010, I have decided to give up drinking soda for another year. This includes every type of soda, even Root Beer (AHHH!). I did this "soda fast" last year from May 1st 2009 until May 1st 2010, and I felt great! But ever since being back on soda over this summer, I just really feel like it is something I want to give up again. I'm definitely not a health-nut, but I truly felt a difference when I was off soda, and living in the desert...I need all the water I can get! So I'm doing it again, and feel free to join me if you want! Or maybe you have something else you'd like to give up for a year, or even 6 months? I know it sounds crazy, but there's a lot of fulfillment that comes from making a commitment and then sticking to it. There's so many things to choose from!

Anyway, I just wanted to get this out there so that I'd have some accountability, and maybe encourage you to try something different, too!

Outside Temp: 92°F
Countdown till Chick-fil-a: 15 days!

Verse of the Day:
As long as Uzziah sought the Lord, God made him prosper. ... But when he was strong his heart was lifted up, to his destruction.
2 Chronicles 26:5b,16a


  1. I've given up soda permanently, and it certainly has made me feel better!! Every once in a while I'll drink it, but very sparingly because I find that now I've gone so long without it, I get sick if I drink too much of it now. I've been drinking lots of water, too, and it certainly makes one feel more alive! Good luck with your "soda-fast"! :)

  2. I'm thinking it might turn into something permanent after this year is up. I mean, already I just don't really crave it that much after giving it up for a year before. I mean yeah, I like the taste, but I feel better without it than when I drink this will probably end in me drinking it vary sparingly, if at all, in the future.
