I made it to day 19 of no pop! Bad news is, today I had a pop. Whoops!
In my defense, I am suffering from a gross cold and really wanted to feel those delicious bubbles on my sore throat. So I got a regular coke (in the hopes that HFCS is better than aspartame) and.....it was just okay. Not nearly the bubble rush I was hoping for--I wanted a nice burn on my throat to slough off the layers of mucus. No luck.
Afterwards, I felt like my teeth were very fuzzy and needed a good brushing. I also immediately had some "digestive issues", specifically the one that has plagued me for over six years now. So I think we know what the connection there is!
Bottom line--totally not worth it. At all.
In other news, I finally quit Lifetime Fitness. I feel like a huge weight is off my shoulders! I checked out Anytime Fitness here in Shakopee. I had met two of their employees at the Chamber of Commerce Luncheon I spoke at a few weeks ago. I can go there for $20 a month and I can bring my kids! My kids loathed the kids club at Lifetime--it is not set up for school age kids. But at Anytime, they can bring their ipads, watch tv, run around in the studio and do hula hoops...much better for them and me.
The main reason I was keeping Lifetime was for the pool in the summer (and Norman of course, but he will still be my favorite trainer) but then my pool buddy defected to the Y. But really, the pool is the only thing I will miss. Plus, as she reminded me, we have Valley Fair and her boat to look forward to this summer! :)
Anytime is small, which I like. When I went to Gold's (before it closed), I had great results. And back in college, I went to a little Lifetime that was for women only. I had great results there too. But in six years at a big Lifetime? No change at all. Maybe a small club is just what I need.
Going to try it out after I get back from vacation.
