Out with the old, in with the new....
I didn't realize how much willpower I have with this new change in my life. For years, I was a Pepsi Cola addict. Not diet Pepsi (never could stand the stuff, even now) but regular Pepsi in a tall glass filled with ice. That was my "coffee" in the morning for years to jump start my morning. Oh let's face it, I drank the stuff all day long. I should've invested in Pepsi stock, I'd probably be a rich woman by now with my contributions to the company by purchasing AND drink a 2 liter bottle in a course of 24 hours. Every single day for too many countless years.
Now when I look at any Pepsi ads or walk by the displays in the supermarket, I cringe. Yes, I can barely look at it because in my mind, that was part of the poison I had in my body when I was deathly ill with the out of control blood sugar.
Yes folks, I was a Pepsiholic who had to quit cold turkey.
I drink Orange Juice in the mornings now with my breakfast. Never really ate what one would consider a "healthy" breakfast for years. Until now. Congratulations Dad, you were right, my bad eating and drinking habits finally caught up to me.
Now I have traded the Pepsi for Crystal Light Iced Tea.
