When I 'took a break' from drinking in 2001 I allowed myself to drink whatever I wanted that didn't include alcohol. Besides drinking alcohol I tried to drink diet everything else. To get no calories from my beverages. Of course, getting a buzz was more important than cutting calories, so all bets were off when it came to alcoholic beverages.
But when I stopped drinking I let myself have real cokes, smoothies, fruit juice, things I normally 'sacrificed' in the name of watching my weight.
Another instance of brain damage.
While we were in Hawaii in June I drank fruit juice but I am basically back in the camp of few calories from beverages. I drink diet if I drink soda, but generally I drink unsweet iced tea and water with lime. My new favorite is a hard peppermint candy in my iced tea. Yum!
What is your favorite thing to drink right now?
