1 year without a drop of soda!
On December 15, 2011 Brady decided to give up soda for one year. It came out of the blue. We questioned him a couple of times as to why he wanted to do this but he never really had a clear answer. I think it was ultimately something he wanted to prove to himself that he could do. Maybe it had something to do with seeing me give up diet mountain dew for almost 2 years. I most certainly haven't been the best example to Brady this past year. After going so long without soda, I started that awful habit back up again in August. Eric and I are rarely without soda in our fridge and we make stops
daily often when we are out and about to get a fountain soda. Brady never wavered in his decision though despite us, not once. He never even seemed tempted. And, let me just make it clear, he loves soda as much as the next guy. He never talked about it. When we were out to eat, he would order water or lemonade without hesitation. If he was at a birthday party where only soft drinks were offered, he went without a drink. I'm just so proud of him. He's been a great example to Eric and I.
Last week when I went grocery shopping, Brady asked if I would pick up a small pack of Dr. Pepper. He wanted to have one to celebrate his one year mark.
When I blogged about this last January, I said in my last senctence, "I have no doubt he will make it a year without."
I love his determination.
Congratulations Brady! You did it!
*To my readers- sorry I have been non existent over here. I'm just trying to do the best I can with keeping up in all areas...however, my blog is one of the areas I have let go. I would like to try and catch up with November and December before the New Year gets here! Life is good. Working, school, tennis, the holidays and a puppy are keeping us busy. I love looking back over all the memories I have in this little blog of mine and want to continue with it. Thanks to all of you who take the time to check in over here. I'm looking forward to catching up with everyone's blog over Christmas vacation!
