Spring break in Nashville was amazing. It was sunny the whole time we were there and it was about 20 degrees warmer than forecasts had predicted so we had to stop and buy me some shorts! We toured the Jack Daniels Distillery, did a wine tasting at Kix Brooks' winery, went to a dueling piano bar, ate some tasty bbg, did a walking tour of the city, and visited the Country Music Hall of Fame. It was a great trip and we're definitely planning on going back someday!
Unfortunately, I didn't really exercise like I should have and I drank mostly regular, full sugar soda pretty much the entire time. It was bad. And the worst part is, I'm having trouble getting back into my workout routine and dropping the soda! But that all ends starting yesterday. I'm giving up all soda, diet and regular. I'm going back to sticking $1.50 in my coffee can for every day that I don't have one. This worked for me last year when I gave it up, and I feel I have even more motivation now. I graduate in about 9 months, and I really want to fit into my dress before then. David and I are also talking about a celebratory trip to Vegas (if I have a full time job lined up) during his Christmas break next year, so not only do I want to look good for that, but I also could use my soda money for a cute new swimsuit!
So, I'm putting this in my blog as a little accountability for myself. No more soda. Period. I will also be attending core crunch 2x per week, zumba 1-2x per week, water aerobics 1x per week, strength train 3x per week, and run 3x per week.
