Experiment: What happens when Suz drinks just ONE CAN of her favorite soft drink?
Well, first you take this:
then add your favorite carbonated soda:
and WHALLAH! Within 30 minutes, you will end up with this:
Stomach bloating like you wouldn't believe (FUN-FUN)! Oh yes, the body does all sorts of neat little tricks after you become pregnant and deliver quadruplets. My new friend, GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) and I have not been getting along too well as of late. I know that I need to stop drinking carbonated beverages--that's why I was VERY excited to participate in Crystal Light's Water Way Challenge Click on the link to learn all about it. (I'm always up for a good challenge!)
Late one night after a dinner date with the hubby, I received my Crystal Light product review starter packet. Lots of goodies inside...now, I have NO excuse to choose Soda over fun-flavored water.
I am personally vowing to (1) drink 8 glasses of Crystal Light/water a day and (2) resist the urge to drink ANY sodas during the next TWO weeks! (EEEEK!) However, I'm not gonna lie---the hardest part of this challenge will be finding TIME to drink 8 glasses of water/day! (That, and running to the restroom constantly!) I mean seriously, do YOU regularly drink your recommended dietary consumption of water each day? If so, PLEEEASE leave a comment with suggestions! I will need all the help I can get! Maybe if there were something to help me keep track? Check out this nifty little widget:
