Feat

Soda Free

What's cold, fizzy, sweet and can remove rust spots from chrome bumpers, grease from clothes, dissolve a t-bone steak in two days and a nail in about four days, and tastes GREEEEEEEEEAT? It's cola, of course—loaded with chemicals, acids, sugars and dyes—and it's super hard on your sweet little body.  Try giving it up for thirty days.

Is that my Coke Zero?

No soda = no osteoporosis.

I'm in for the month of October!

I'm not counting this as one of my "10" because I don't drink any soda anyways. But, I wanted to go ahead and check one off for motivation and momentum!! :)
whoo hoo!!

MarisaVH's picture

Easy...kombucha has replaced my soda habit! Same bubbles - better taste!

michlny's picture

NEVER.

ellalopez's picture

Hi everyone, I'm a newbie here. And I'm in on this challenge for October!

renster's picture

These are called challenges...it's no longer a challenge for you if you have already accomplished it. I am in for this Feat!!

lacypt's picture

I'm confused how so many people have accomplished this when we still have 9 days left in October.

ADRIANA's picture

hey Adriana and all, it IS confusing. officially, nobody has achieved any of the monthlong feats. we don't yet have a way to "turn off" the Feat Accomplis button, so some people have clicked it in advance. But the final count will not be made until after 10/31, at which point anyone who hasn't ACTUALLY completed the feat, but who has clicked the button, should comment here and let us know. By then we might also implement an "UN ACCOMPLISH" button....

Oliver's picture

Hmmm, interesting.  Thanks for the clarification Oli.

Fess up peeps and be truthful at the end!

ADRIANA's picture

whats kombusha? what does it taste like?

priscyla's picture

I kicked diet soda a while ago secondary to the aspartame. Not down with formaldehyde. But I didn't drink Mexican Cokes... which I love for a whole month. Ole'. Might need one of those now and again. Despite the cane sugar... they rule. 

meanyc's picture

Completed.  I never drink soda.  I did however go to the best tasting of my life on Friday evening at Union Square Wines.

 

"Description of Tasting:

Join USQ for a spirited night of malted madness from all corners of the globe!  Brown spirits will be flowing in the Salon on Hallow's Eve while dram fans sample whiskies from several countries!  Austria's Reisetbauer 7yr Whiskey, Japan's Suntory 12yr and 18yr Single Malts, Scotland's Compass Box, Kentucky's Maker's Mark, Canada's Forty Creek, Wales' Penderyn Single Malt and more will be on hand for sampling!  Admission to this tasting is free, and no reservations are required!"
