Unexpected Announcement

Hold onto your seats. I have a huge announcement. Andrew and I are proud to announce we are having........

Coca Cola withdrawals!

What? You thought I was going to say a baby? Get outta here. ;) We have decided that we would like to have our kidneys and pancreases intact and functioning on their own in 10 years, so we're cutting out Coca Cola. We are definitely not the "we'll cut back" type because in the past that has only lasted, at the most, a week. We are quitting them cold turkey. At first, I couldn't believe Andrew agreed to do it with me, but I'm so glad he did! I'm proud to say it has been 49 hours and 50 minutes since my last drink. If you know me well, you know this is a HUGE deal for me. I really want to to this for my health, Andrew's health, and my future children's health. I know that my habits will be passed on to them. Drinking tons of sugar and calcium depriving phosphoric acid a day is NOT something I want to pass down.

Wanna know what finally convinced me to switch? I drank about 3 cans a day 3 days of the week and a 20 oz plus a can approximately 4 days a week. This added up to...

11,280 calories per month.

Wow. A pound of fat=3500 calories. That's 3.22 lbs a month I could lose JUST by cutting out Coca Cola. That means in 2 months, I could be back in my old jeans!! That's a motivator in itself! Sadly, Andrew drank 4-5 a day. I didn't even calculate that.

I wanted to post my announcement online so I can be held accountable. I've already told everyone who would listen at work about my new endeavor. So...ask us about our coke consumption when you see us to hold us accountable! We're in it for the long haul!

Praying for God's self discipline!
Audra & Andrew

Wow! I knew it wasn't a baby. I thought maybe a dog, noo. My next thought was some type of electronics or car! HA! But I am so proud of y'all!
