“The major work of the world is not done by geniuses. It is done by ordinary people, with balance in their lives, who have learned to work in an extraordinary manner.” ― Gordon B. Hinckley

Feeling Awesome

I have officially been off of soda, more specifically Coke and Dr. Pepper for two weeks. Now that the headaches and un-rational thoughts about how I can get my hands on one at 2am have subsided, I can say that I feel AWESOME! I went for a run thing morning and I felt strong and actually enjoyed the myself. I can’t say that I am going to swear off Coke or Dr. Pepper forever. I don’t know if that is an achievable goal. But I am going to stick to it and see how long I can last. Now that I have done two weeks I am shooting for a month.

I am leaving for Moab tomorrow afternoon for my relay race. This week I feel much stronger and am more excited than for the race. I am still not in the shape I would like to be for it, but I feel like I can compete. I am going to try to twitter the crap out of the race. So follow my tweets http://twitter.com/beaushakespear. Have a great week.

“If you fail to prepare, prepare to fail.” (this seems appropriate for me for the last couple of weeks)

  1. That is awesome! I quit Mountain Dew a year ago. I was completely addicted to it and now I never have a thought about it. Honestly, I don’t care to drink pop anymore because when I was, I was feeling slow and miserable. I think a lot of people need to realize they feel stressed and miserable because of the food and drinks they consume.

    Great Post! and keep up the good work !

    • I have been without any soda of any type carbonated or non for three weeks now. I feel so much better both physically and mentally. Next step is to clean up my eating habits. =) Thanks for your comment.
