Monday, January 9


On Friday night, we were having family time. Mom had made homemade pizza (YUM!!!!) and we were all together watching a movie. After that, Dad took us kids out to drive around. It was foggy, and somewhat dangerous, which made it all the more fun! The kids played a game and drank their sodas while Dad drove. We went past the Graffiti Bridge and saw some kids painting on it, we drove by Joe Patti's, we held our noses past the waste treatment plant, we oohed and aahed at the houses on Scenic Highway, and we hoped that nothing creepy would come out of the thick fog. But while we were out, I realized something kind of disgusting.
I had guzzled three cans of non-diet soda just that night. And look how much sugar is in just one 12-ounce can!
That's a lot, and I had three times that in just one night. I know that that's not going to do wonders for my girlish figure. :) So I decided that I'm not going to drink soda anymore. One of my cousins quit a couple years ago, and he said that now, it tastes disgusting to him. So I'm going to take it one day at a time and see how long I can go! You might say it's a sort of New Year's Resolution, but I always get this way this time of year. Since my birthday is coming up really soon, I start to think about getting one year older and how I should act now that I'm older. I know that eventually, bad eating habits will catch up with me, and I figure it's easier to kick them now than later. Because it is so not good for me to have over 100 grams of sugar in just one night. Aren't I hyper enough without it?


  1. Yay for you! We don't usually drink soda, only on certain occasions, so it's kind of a treat when we do have them. :)
    When is your birthday?!

  2. Good for you! I actually hardly ever drink soda. Ever. Doesn't mean I wouldn't allow a sip or so, but even with that I haven't done in awhile. Good luck, and don't get discouraged! ;)

  3. Ooh my birthday is coming up too! (it is the 15th) when is yours?

  4. Haha, my birthday, too!! :D
