No Soda Update

Not drinking soda is going surprisingly well thus far. I know I am only on Day #9, but so far so good. I would say that I have only really had one headache since giving it up last Monday - which was on Day #6. The headache was on Saturday, when we were out in the sun, I was wearing Ryan's (ill-fitting) sunglasses, and hadn't had much in my system - so it may have been a combination of everything, instead of just no caffeine. I am proud of how far I have come in just a week. We go out to dinner on the weekends, where we would normally order soda, but it has been just water. We have a Growth Group on Thursdays that has tons of soda, but it has been just water. I have to admit, I know it would be easy to go back to it (something about that 'sweet nectar' just tastes so good), but I know my body is thanking me for it (not to mention my wallet - seeing as water at restaurants and out of the tap (in our condo) is free, whereas soda doesn't run out of our faucets, so it does cost us money :) ).

Just a little map going around the internet that I saw yesterday and thought it was funny about Pop vs. Soda:
