When I say water you say LOGGED!

I have not made it a secret that I am trying to break a soda habit. I gave up straight soda at the beginning of the year and with the exception of one can of wild cherry Pepsi a month ago, I am clean of straight soda. The diet soda drinking on the other hand has gotten way out of hand. I drink too much diet soda and my kidneys and bladder are feeling the effects of it. I drink a lot of water too, but I really want to be soda free. I know this may sound crazy, but I feel its an addiction for me. So for the next 40 days I am only drinking water. I may have a little herbal tea while I am still sick, but that's all. I need to break these chains of soda!

So I currently drink about 10-12 cups of water a day, but with giving up soda, that number will rise. Hopefully not only will it help my kidneys and bladder and the rest of body but I am hoping it will also make my metabolism jump! Because of being sick, I haven't been able to get my workouts in like I would like, I know the scale is creeping up again.

So water, water, water and strength training until I can do cardio again!!
