I have a very bad habit. I drink soda. Specifically Coke or Pepsi. And I drink it a lot. I drink so much of it that it doesn't even taste good to me anymore, but I drink it anyway. You might say I have a problem.
I didn't drink any soda while I was pregnant, but after I had the baby, I started to treat myself to a soda when we went out to eat. Then, I'd buy the occasional bottle to have at home. Now, I drink it more days than not (though still not EVERY day).
I've wanted to stop. I've even *tried* to stop. But somewhere between the lack of sleep and the addictiveness of that sweet sugary syrup, I just haven't had the will power.
Today, though, is Ash Wednesday. Which means Lent. Which means "giving something up." And for me, that something this year will be soda.
I'm doing it for me and for my health, but more importantly, I'm doing it for my baby. I want to set a good example, and I don't want to be a do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do parent.
Wish me luck!
