Challenges

No Soda Challenge

All right Venturers, this week I challenged myself to not drink any soda!

I did awful. It honestly felt like I didn’t even give myself a challenge this week.

Now, I don’t drink that much soda to begin with, so that’s good. However, I would really like to eliminate it entirely. One positive I took from the week was the fact that I never had my own soda. I would only share my husband’s.

He was probably the reason that I really wanted to do this challenge. He drinks way too much soda in my opinion. He definitely doesn’t drink enough water. If I can eliminate soda from my diet, then maybe he’ll drink it a little bit less.

Either way, there wasn’t much success this week. So what did I learn? I’m going to start getting the mini cans of soda. They are so adorable and you still get that carbonated goodness. This week also made me realize that I should make some different lifestyle changes. I mainly have soda when I’m drinking a liquor. I’m a sucker for rum and coke. Point is, I should probably cut back on those.

I am a little bummed that I wasn’t able to do this challenge right this week. In the coming weeks I will definitely be working on buying the smaller cans of soda and see if that does any good.

Let me know what you think. Have you eliminated soda from your diet and if you’ve tried, how did it go?

Thank you for stopping by and I’ll see you next time!

  1. Great post, even though you didn’t have the desired outcome! I love the idea of weekly challenges, especially when they are health-related; they can really add up to some serious progress when they’re sustainable! I know soda is a tough one for a lot of people (me included, lol), especially when mixed with booze. Good luck for the next time you try!

  2. I love that you have challenged yourself and come away from your experience with new thoughts. I think it is probably pretty hard to go with no soda after drinking it regularly so getting smaller and smaller cans is a wonderful idea to decrease the amount you drink slowly.

    I have never liked soda in general and have only ever had a sip here and there.
