Why I'm Quitting Soda!

Hey friends!  I wrote a post about quitting sodas for my friend Jaima's blog!  I'd love for you to check it out here:

Here is a little preview:

To start, I have to tell you about my husband. I guess it was about a month into dating, he told me that he used chewing tobacco. While I was thoroughly disgusted, I had already fallen in love with him. I told him that it was fine, but once we had kids, it had to stop. I knew in all honesty, that he’d likely never quit, especially if he really didn’t want to. I am so proud to say that 4 years later, with a two year old at home, my husband finally quit! I have never been so proud! I had been nagging at him since my mom was diagnosed with cancer, and even more after she passed away. I understood the addiction side—I’m addicted to sodas. I always thought that it wasn’t nearly as bad of an addiction, but since my husband quit, I decided to do some research to help convince myself to stop drinking soda.

Now, I LOVE cokes. It’s often one of the first things on my mind when I wake up– I need a fix.  Terrible isn’t it?......


  1. You've done your research, so I'm sure you don't need more facts.. but from a personal standpoint, I feel SOOO much better when I'm only drinking soda! (I go through times that I start drinking a lot of soda, when I start feeling like I need the caffeine, usually when my husband is deployed.) I can usually tell if I'm not well hydrated, and the more water I drink, the better I feel! Two other great benefits: A glass of water when you first wake up boosts your metabolism for the day, and if you drink a glass before a meal you will feel full sooner. :) Good luck!

  2. You have such motivation. I've gone a week without it and at the end of the week I broke down and grabbed that Dr. Pepper to enjoy the crisp feel of it going down my throat. I know if I could quit (or limit it to maybe 1 or 2 a month)I would feel so much better and lose some weight but it is hard. Keep us updated on this progress.

  3. I found your blog on pinterest and have fallen in love. I have been wanting to do some freezer crockpot meals but didn't know where to start. So thank you for your ideas. I just had a couple of questions. Do you ever have problems with freezer burn? And how long do they typically last in the freezer? Thank you so much! Can't wait to get started!


So glad you stopped by! I'd love to hear your thoughts!
