Are you still drinking soda daily? Do you drink more soda than water? What is it with the soda that keeps you going back for more? The sweet? Possibly the fizz? Just an addiction? Well, I'm going to give you all the tips you need to rid yourself of all that sugar intake. First, I understand you may not be willing to quit cold turkey and that's completely understandable. So what you need to do is be smarter than the addiction. Start small with buying the 100 calorie cans of soda. Put lots of ice in your soda to help dilute it a bit and slowly decrease the amount you drink per day. You see as your taste buds change your eating and drinking habits are sure to follow. After I stopped drinking soda I found myself longing for the fizz and trust me I went through every fizzy drink out there until I found my favorite drink, San Pellegrino. It's a mineral water that has that fizz to it. You can find it flavored too! I personally do not care for the lemon, I enjoy the blood orange or orange flavor. Just another tip, I enjoy the unflavored in the bottles, and the flavored versions in the cans. Just begin to play around with these ideas and before you know it you too will be soda free in 2013!

Did you make your resolution(s) for 2013? Are you keeping them? Well I sure hope so! We are only 12 days in and if you have the proper mindset this can be the year that people take notice. You can keep them guessing! People will be asking,"Where did you get that fire?"
Above is a photo of the book I recently purchased and let me say BEST PURCHASE EVER! This book will guide you to help rid yourself of all the negative self talk, and learn to accept your life and truly be happy. Your reality is how you perceive it and we know there's many ways to see a situation. That glass you're holding can be half full or half empty, it's all up to you!
In the past I've blogged about my fitness journey and talked about an exercise program that I've been doing. I want to continue that tradition. I recently finished week 1 of Slim in 6. I want people to not be fearful to jump on the journey with me. I know that when you've been out of the game for awhile the sound of P90X and talking about "killing it in your workout" can be scary stuff. I will show you that at the end of 6 weeks I will have gone down another size and lost inches. I say inches because I only step on a scale at the doctor. I gave up scales a LONG time ago. Maybe you should too! Perhaps I just gave you something to strive for in 2013. If you have fitness questions or comments, do not be afraid to leave them below.
