Beverage Choice

Sunday, July 18, 2010

I gave up soda once before but today ain't that day. lol It so hot here in Chicago, you could fry an egg on the sidewalk. I used to drink 6 (12oz) ice filled glasses of soda Faygo Peach. Guess what? I don't too much care for it anymore. I do like grape, strawberry or orange crush soda. Now I drink my water but I also like a glass of soda especially when its hot So what's your beverage choice when it gets hot? Ice tea or sweet tea or lemonade? I like peach ice tea but crystal light brand.

Today, I got up and went to the 8am worship service & Pastor preached on Let us not be weary lest we faint. It was a wonderful & thought provoking sermon. I went to visit my daughter & grandson. I wish I had an ounce of the energy that my grandson had. I could workout for about 3hours everyday with his resilience. Went home made my baked chicken & meatloaf. In between time, I made grits, scrambled eggs, bacon & sausage. The men folk were hungry from worship service. They ate breakfast & then once they finished, they ate dinner too. I made corn & mashed potatoes to boot. I had a slice of toast, a spoonful of scrambled eggs & a slice of bacon. I ate half a piece of chicken & some corn but I couldn't do it back to back like them. Did I mention they are all slim muscular? Makes me sick! If I even look at the food they eat I gain a pound. lol

I pray you are all enjoying your Sunday!

God bless & chose your beverages wisely!

    You make me hungry every Sunday! LOL I cooked meatloaf, black eyed peas, cornbread, whole green beans and a side of brown. My son pretended he did not like black eyed peas. So I had them for each day this week. I finished them off today. It was one of those .88 bags from Kroger. I know how to make food stretch! LOL

    My drink for the heat hear in Texas is ice cold bottled water. I put my bottles in the freezer before an outside workout and like you said it's on like Donkey Kong. Wow I miss that game. LOL
    Many blessings for sharing your life with us.

    Have you tried Diet V8 Splash.... I am drinking the Tropical blend and mix it with either diet 7Up or Ginger Ale... you know about V8 tomato juice, well this is fruit based and has vitamins in it, so it a healthy alternative to drinking pop... there is also a regular V8 Splash, if you don't like the diet...

    Glad that you had a wonderful Sunday... ~ Dee ~

    decaf green tea, chia tea. I like different flavored teas. I try hard to stay away from sodas. I am not envious of slim people. God made me special. I love me cause God loves me.
