I gave up soda's ya know? I really did. I only drank diet soda, I hate all the sugar in regular soda. I prefer diet dr. pepper or diet pepsi. I hate diet coke, gross....... buuuuuuut if its the only diet drink available, I sadly oblige and I drink it. Since I have had my acid reflux, I decided to do a process of elimination of food and drinks. What can be causing the painful reflux? spicy foods? starches? milk? ( wait- I don't drink milk), sodas? pasta? soup? chips? I DON'T KNOW! I do know that baked potatoes gave me a bad case of acid reflux a while back, I certainly quite baked potatoes since that painful occurence.

In all seriousness, I really did give up sodas. I haven't drank one in a month. This is a big thing for me, really it is. Since quitting, my reflux has been more than good, except when I ate that baked potatoe.You see, if we went out to eat somewhere I almost always got a soda because I hate tea and am not fond of tap water so my only option was................. soda. ( this is where I drank diet coke in all my misery)

Really, I have a point to this post. It all started with today. I went to chipotle with my co-workers and of course didn't think about getting a drink since we always have bottled water at the office. Fast forward.... now back to the office, open the fridge, NO WATER BOTTLES. I secretly throw a fit in my head thinking WHO.THE.HECK.DRANK.ALL.THE.WATER????? Well, sadly, I think it was me, but didn't want to admit it. I proceed to get a cup for some water out of our water machine-thing. You know - the Ozarka big jug things? I fill my cup and take a drink ....isn't that water supposed to be cold? Am I right? Well, it wasn't - go figure. So I again, I started to throw a fit in my head thinking....WHY.ISN'T.THIS.WATER.COLD??? Being a brat that I am, I dumped out the water. I then thought, "well what the heck am I going to drink for lunch?" Oh you better believe the light bulb went off in my head. " OH I HAVE A DIET DR. PEPPER in the fridge never been opened and it's been sitting there, waiting , for moments like this, waiting for me to pick it up and ENDULGE myself.

I had a little battle with myself for a moment....contemplating..."should i? no, don't do it, you've been so good....but I'M.THRISTY!" Well................ I did it. I opened the soda. Let me tell you was THE.BEST.SODA.I'VE.EVER.HAD. plain and simple my friends. No lying there. I would take little sips, trying to savor the moment. It really was the best soda I have ever had, ok maybe that is an exaggeration, but it really was good. Chick-fil-a HAS THE BEST diet dr. pepper crisp....yuuuuuuuuuum. Oh sorry, I was just fantisizing about my ddp. Sick, I know.

Just to let you know.... I didn't drink the whole soda. I didn't even drink 1/2 of the soda. I threw it away. The carbination was too much for me to handle. I couldn't do it. As good as it was, I "manned" up and tossed it in the trash can. I really thought I was getting sick there for a second as I tossed the bottle in the trash. Fever? Headache? I didn't know what was happening??

Actually, I knew what was happening. I realized that I couldn't drink soda. Sad Sad day.
Needless to say, I am done with sodas, for now :)

Wow, I can't believe I really wrote a post about soda. Oh well, it's my blog right?
Hope everyong has a good weekend!

i'm not supposed to drink soda because i get really bad headaches.. like incapacitating.. and they're usually triggered from sugars and caffeine.. well.. that means no soda or chocolate.. which i'm fine with no choc because i don't like it all that much.. but sodas.. what do i do without my root beer or orange soda!? so.. my parents house.. hardly ever had soda.. of any kind.. and then i start dating casey.. and wouldn't you know.. their fridge is stocked full of like 8 different sodas.. ALL THE TIME!! what's a girl to do?!?! i drink 'em sometimes.. thankfully i've built up a good resolve to just drink water or have juice..

What are the latest findings on this reflux thing? Are you on meds? A special diet? I guess I lost track of this somewhere.
