So....Sept 7, 2010, I started a challenge with my Big Sis and my cousin to see if we could give up drinking pop (soda) for 30 days....Now I normally don't drink pop as much as they do, in fact, not even 1/4 of what they drink, but prior to this challenge, I had drunk pop more than usual. So I decided to join them.....
For the first two weeks, it was strictly water! No juice, no tea, no nothing, just water....I drank about 7 bottles of water a day, o yea, I was on! Hehe.....
Then the last two weeks consisted of juice and water....In these 30 days, I was also taking the following vitamins: E, Omega 3's, B-Complex and Vitamin C. I had tried to take a mulit-vitamin but kept finding myself extremely nauseated....Still can't find one that works :( .......any suggestions are welcome.
All in all, the challenge was great, and yay for my sister & cousin! Yep, I doubted them (sad face), but I'm glad they proved me wrong....Now let's see if they can keep it up. I on the other hand, drank 1/2 cup of soda this morning around like 2am and it burned so badlyyyyyy......What a way to celebrate....Guess that was letting me know that I don't need it...and I'm listening to my body.
There are some positive changes I've noticed while doing the challenge:
1. My skin is much clearer!!!!
2. I feel better, not so tired as I used to feel.
3. I have more energy now (guess that's the B-complex).
4. And my hair looks and feel so much better!!!!! Serious!y. It's just flourishing, and I'm having less SSK's. And! I'll be @ APL by December, when it's time for me to straighten!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YIPPEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
On another note, my sis says I look a little smaller...but she says that all the time, so eh.?.
