Quitting Soda: Days 4 and 5

Yesterday I was super energetic, and we got a lot done. I felt like I was finally over that initial hump. No fatigue. No headaches. Things were going great. And then I woke up with a huge headache this morning. Well, dang.

That being said, the average seems to be improving bit by bit, which is exactly what I was hoping for. I weigh less according to the scale, but I'm going to wait to celebrate that as weight fluctuations are normal.

Yesterday while we were at the store, I bought a bottle of seltzer water just out of curiosity. What is it with this stuff? When I opened the bottle I even got the distinct scent of blueberries and lemon, appropriate since the flavor is literally blueberry lemonade. So why doesn't it taste like that in the slightest? It literally just has that weird, bitter seltzer water flavor that feels super dry when you drink it. I don't understand this stuff at all.

I guess that really goes to show how much sugar and flavoring is in sodas. When I have something that's supposedly all natural, it really doesn't taste like anything at all. Apparently it's better if you add lemon or something like that to it, but we'll see. I might just stick to plain water. Maybe adding some mint if I really need a change. We'll see.

To be honest, I don't have a problem with plain water at all. Well, depending on where it comes from. I'm not the hugest fan of the water that's in the Albany city limits, but since I live outside city limits that's a nonissue right now. I have a water bottle. I should just carry it more.

Man, writing these on a daily basis is hard. I've never been great at keeping a journal. I don't really feel like what happens to me is interesting enough to comment on. I realize that that's not the point for this exercise, which is a daily examination of how much things change as I quit soda. I dunno. I guess I wish I had more interesting observations to talk about.
