I used to be a soda drinker. Diet Coke to be specific. I loved the stuff but about five years ago I realized it probably wasn’t good for me. Not to mention that soda is kind of expensive. It also has no nutritional value, whatsoever.
One of the simplest things we can do for ourselves and our bodies is to drink more water. Eight glasses a day to be exact. My daughter's bought me a Brita pitcher for my birthday last year and I love it! We tend to have a lot of chlorine in our tap water and this pitcher takes that out making it much more palatable.
Now that I've replaced the soda with water I've gotten to the point that I don't really care for it much anymore. I'll treat myself to one every once in awhile because it sounds good but after a few sips I'm pretty much over it.
My new water habit has carried over to my girls and as a result I see them drink more. They don’t care for soda much anymore either. Whenever we go out to eat we order water. We use the Brita and refill water bottles to take with us on picnics or to have when we are running errands. My girls take their water bottles to school with them and I take mine to work.
Drink more water and get on a healthier path. If you already do then keep up the good work!
