Day two!

******Just found this.. I wrote in on 1-17-12 but it never posted... Leaving it the way I originally wrote it so you could get some info out of it! *******
Ok  Ladies!! We have officially made it to day two! YAAAAAAY!!! only 68 more days to go! I dont know about you all but I am feeling super motivated, energized, and just down right happy to be alive! ( Do I sound like an infomercial yet?)  Well I am hoping to, cuz what I am selling I want you to buy!!! I want you to buy into the fact that we are beautiful, intelligent, happy, independent women that can do whatever it is we put our minds to!  Todays topic for me, well I dont know if you can tell by the picture above, but its regarding diet soda!  Diet soda is a big NO NO!  I am going to reference a few lines from a book I am currently reading, "Skinny Bitch"-- A no-nonsense touch-love guide for savy girls who want to stop eating crap and start looking fabulous!  Let me tell you this book is straight forward and tells you just like it is! These ladies that wrote this book sure did not sugar coat this stuff!  Ok brace yourself, girls: Soda is liquid satan. It is the devil. It is garbage.  There is nothing in soda that should be put into your body. For starters, soda's high level of phosphorous can increase calcium loss from the body, as can its sodium and caffeine. This can lead to osteoporosis. Last time it was checked, sugar found in soda by the boatload, does not make you skinny! Now dont go patting yourself on the back if you drink diet soda. That stuff is even worse. Aspartame ( an ingredient commonly found in diet sodas and other sugar free foods) has been blamed for a slew of scary maladies, like arthritis, birth defects, fibromyalgia, Alzheimers, lupus, multiple sclerosis, and diabetes.   When methyl alcohol, a component of aspartame, enters your body, it turns into formaldehyde. Formaldehyde is toxic and carcinogenic (cancer causing). Laboratory scientists use formaldehyde as a disinfectant or perervative, they dont drink it! ( --Skinny Bitch by rory Freedman and kim Barnouin)
Does that make sense girls??? Diet soda, diet/sugar free foods and sweetners are harmful! FORMALDEHYDE--thats what dead bodies are embalmed with, and we drink this stuff.. one word GROSSSS!   As of today, it may be a day to start deinking something new. Ice tea, water, lemonade? Anything but soda!   The recommended daily does of H20 is 64oz a day, thats 8 glasses, or 4 average size water bottles.   The more you drink, the more you pee, which is also a great thing!   Well ladies, all this talk about soda, and water and liquids.. well its time for me to hit the lil gals room :)   Have a FANTASTIC day, feel free to comment and write thoughts and whatever makes you feel good! This is a happy place here ;)  Tinkerbell always said "Think happy thoughts" but my motto today is "Drink happy thoughts"  kisses Amy
