Soda - DON'T DRINK YOUR CALORIES
I NEVER drink soda.
When I say never, I really mean never. I may have 1 soda ever 3 or 4 months, if that! When we go out to restaurants, we always get water. Not because it's water I want, but water is FREE and with the FRUGAL husband I have, water it is!
This weekend we went to Logan (2 hour drive) to celebrate my sisters 30th birthday! We threw her this little surprise party and went bowling. There was pizza, chips, and a whole lot of soda but no water in sight!
I was SO proud of myself. I only had 2 slices of pizza. I normally would have eaten about 4, sometimes 5 slices. While eating the pizza I thought I was being good by only drinking half of a cup of root beer.
We then went bowling they had code red. Code Red is my ALL TIME favorite soda. It's got such a yummy taste and gives me a boost of caffeine, I LOVE IT! It is my weakness for sure. I got a 20 oz to share with my sister, but I'm pretty sure I drank most of it.
We then went to my mom's house. She had made some yummy sloppy joes (I only ate 1), there was some yummy potato salad, the BEST potato salad made by my grandma, I only had 1/2 cup of that. But then there was root beer. My 2nd greatest weakness in soda other than code red.
At the end of the night I entered all my information into myfitnesspal (friend me if you're on there) and I went over my calorie goal by 450 calories. Wanna know how many calories was in all the soda I drank?
I DRANK MY CALORIES -
I could have endulged in another sloppy joe instead of feeling hungry, had another slice of pizza, had some more of my grandma's salad. I could have had some chocolate chip cookie or who knows what, but I DRANK MY CALORIES!
I was more upset over the fact that I drank my calories than the fact that I went over for 1 day! DON'T DRINK YOUR CALORIES, it's not worth it and will leave you unsatisfied and craving more for days!
