Me at the antique store
* PEKING DUCK
* PATO PEQUINÉS
So, last Monday I vow to myself that I will quit soft drink, I am an avid lover of soft drink. Well, particularly Pepsi I can consume about 2 or 3 500ml bottles of soda per day. But considering the lack of calcium and vitamin in my body I decided to slow the process of consumption, and do myself a favor. But in the begging I didn’t completely quit it but to drink less which mean that I was only drinking 1 bottle of Pepsi per day.
Still, I was consuming a lot of unhealthy stuff from it, not to mention the amount of sugar it contain, so I decide to completely quit drinking it. Which was hard, no extremely hard and in the past, I decided to quit a few times before, but you can say I wasn’t able to control myself and by the end of the day I usually ended up drinking Pepsi. I don’t know what about it is that I love and can’t seem to give it up, even though I know how bad it is and how unhealthy Pepsi is for me. It was not that I was just drinking soda, I was also involved in a lot of unhealthy stuff sometime late night eating, carb-loading, which honestly did do me a favor.
Two weeks ago I was venting all of this to my friend, she told me you have a hard time controlling your craving and can easily give in to all junk food. This made me realize that I was going all in and not taking baby step, like I should start with one change in my life and slowly and gradually move towards it and just not jump right into it. Initially I only developed two new habits and decided to roll with it for a few days until I’m able to control my craving and all together forget about them.
The first thing I did was to stop drinking soda, now it has only been 10 days without it, but I felt great, I ‘am not craving it and it didn’t feel like there is something missing from my life. Apart from not taking Pepsi I have also not taken sugar in any form mostly, well, I have only drink tea 2 times in the past ten day with sugar, but other than that I haven’t taken sugar.
I hope I can continue to be on this path, I know for a lot of people, it’s easy to cut soda down, but for me it like a milestone and even 10 days is a big deal for me because I’ve been trying for years to cut it down but I never really had any success. So I want to celebrate my little success and hope (InshAllah) that I will complete this journey and be on healthier path and take care of myself.
This is a note to myself and to realize that it’s ok to take baby step and take time to get used to it because for me quitting all things haven’t worked out and I’m proud of myself and that all matters.
Humans, what’s up with you and soda? Is it slowly killing you or are you immune? Is this one of those acceptable death inducers? Do you even know what it’s doing??
This is upsetting me
This is very true
