Beverages at Work

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

I was allowing myself two large soy mistos and two 20oz diet sodas at work. However, in trying to save money, increase water consumption, and reduce unnecessary caffeine, I'm trying eliminating the sodas.

    A worthy goal. Stopping the soda will be hard at first, but it will get easier and easier as each day goes by! emoticon (I can do that cause I'm your wife!)

    Thanks, folks! :-)

Yeah, trying to fill up my water bottle whenever I leave my desk at work. That has replaced the diet sodas so far.

Regarding cafe mistos:

I'm afraid Starbucks has brainwashed me. :-) See here:


It's a cafe au lait, but with soy milk instead of dairy milk.

Good idea about the soda water. If it were more convenient to bring it to work, I'd do it today, but will see how it goes with the tap water.

    What's a soy misto? I'm intrigued! Living in the desert, I've found that 8 glasses of water a day is not enough for me to stay hydrated. :-/

As far as the diet soda, it's hard to quit, but so worth it. I like drinking charged water with an ounce of fruit juice, or just fruit. It's nice and still gives you that fizzy/burpy bite of Coke. :) Plus, two liters of generic soda water costs around 70 cents.

    I'm not a huge believer in the 8 glasses of water per day, a bunch of articles say it's not a good measure of hydration, but it has helped me avoid too much coffee. Do you do the 8 glasses? Would that help cut back on the two sodas?
