Mamavation Monday

It has been a couple of weeks since I have done a MM post (I know I am a bad...... mom)with school and other family things going on. Water is easy for me to write about since close to 7 years ago we gave up soda and tea (or I did hubs still does a soda or tea now and then). I drink decaffeinated coffee or water with an occasional ginger ale or Sprite thrown in for variety. I love how water taste I love to eat ice I love it in all ways so the Brita Challenge was a great thing for me. Everyone would be so surprised to find out that after a while you loose your taste for soda's and tea and other than the few and far between cup of hot tea at the local Asian restaurant I can' drink it. It is weird that I can drink hot unsweetened tea but cold sweet tea (the official drink of the south) makes me gag. So folks drink up and take the Brita Challenge!

This post is sponsored by Brita and I took the Brita Challenge to be entered into a giveaway hosted by Mamavation – a community dedicated to obesity prevention & weight loss for women .

It's true - you do lose the taste of soda after not drinking it for awhile. I drink a lot of water, some coffee or iced tea (love sweet tea though and I miss it now that I am no longer in the south) and soda rarely. Water is just so good for you!!

Good luck this week!!

Thank you for giving me hope that it won't always be this hard to abstain from pop! :)
Have a great week!

So glad to see you posting again! :)

I love water, too! That being said, in my busy day I often overlook grabbing a glass. I think the Brita Challenge was good timing for me. Don't be a stranger, come chat with us on twitter.

Have a great week.

I only gave up soda about 4 weeks ago and totally agree with you about losing the taste for it. Amazing.

I'll totally not be able to give up my green tea though (hot and unsweetened) -- it's my only caffeine source... and way to keep warm in the mornings in my very cold office!

Glad to see you back to posting with #mamavation!

Losing the taste is true - I've found that if I drink one after not having any for a while, it's not as good as I expected it to be.
I hope things calm down for you, and that you're able to stick around!

I totally understand losing the taste for soda... although I do like tea - mostly herbal and always unsweet. Glad to have you back posting again :)
