Happy Monday, y’all!
If you were to meet me in real life six or so weeks ago and we went out to breakfast—yes, breakfast—or lunch, I definitely would be ordering a Diet Coke. If you were to come over to my house to hang, it’s likely I would have been sipping on a Diet Mountain Dew. No matter how many times I tried to kick my diet soda addiction, it never stuck.
Yet at the beginning of the year, one of my New Year’s Resolutions was to work on my fitness and overall wellness, and I knew that drinking at least a can or two of diet soda very day was not helping me with my health goals. So I decided to commit to giving up diet soda for Lent, figuring if it went really poorly, I could have my beloved bubbles back after six weeks. Since Ash Wednesday (March 1), I’ve only had one Diet Coke (this is huge for me!) and have no plans to become a regular soda drinker once Lent is over this Sunday on Easter.
