Ok, so I posted on FB a few weeks ago about soda drinking habits. I have been a heavy diet soda drinker for the past 2 years. I would say 1 per day and lately maybe even 1.5-2 per day. EEEKKKK!!! Here is what I read:
The researchers monitored the soda-drinking habits of more than 2,500 individuals and compared them with the number of vascular events—heart attacks and strokes—that occurred over a 10-year period. After factoring in pre-existing conditions—diabetes, high blood pressure, BMI, and others—they found that those who were downing diet drinks on a daily basis were 43% more likely to experience a vascular event than those who drank none.

Now for a little update! I HAVE had a few sodas in the past 2 weeks BUT only 4 diet drinks. I am proud to say that my fridge is soda free! YAY! It has been hard for me to go to the store and pass up buying a 24 pack of soda but I have prevailed! The times I had a soda was when I went to lunch with a friend and then lunch with my mom(I didn’t even think of getting anything else) and a few times at my brother’s house. Next time I go out, I will remember to just order a water. Little by little I am making better choices and I hope you all are doing the same.
I have not gotten to my workout yet for the day. I have worked from 8-12 and will work from 2-3 so after my little one goes to bed tonight, I will hit it hard… Here is the break down of my upcoming workout. You can search any of these workouts online for proper form. I am hoping to be able to record my workouts very soon for you all to follow.
5 minute warm up on the treadmill
Push up/jump up and over a hurdle(book, weight, whatever you have) for 20 push ups
Squat, stand up and raise a kettle bell up to the side for 24
