Day 4 - Unexpected Yumminess!

As my day is coming to a close, I am happy, grateful and content. I watched the original version of "True Grit" tonight with my man and earlier today, I discovered a new and exciting drink that won't take away from my goal of taking my body back!

While at one of my favorite stores today, ("WholeFoods") a lovely lady was giving out samples of a new diet soda drink. I basically gave up drinking sodas a long time ago, other than an occasional rootbeer with pizza. But, when I saw that this was a drink that was sweetened with the herb called "stevia" it caught my attention. Stevia is one of my sister's favorite non-sugar sweeteners and I knew it was healthy. So, I took a sip of a sample, just out of curiosity. They had several flavors. I tried ginger-ale first and then the orange soda. The orange drink was pure yumminess! It kind of reminded me of the old orange Shasta drinks.

The drink is called Zevia. You can check them out online. It is sold at WholeFoods and you can also order them on Amazon. I bought a six pack of the orange today and plan on treating myself when I have a sweet craving. It will not only be guilt free - but, it will not add a single pound to the bod! (zero calories!)

Speaking of drinks, I have had 3 bottles of water and need to drink my 4th to meet my quota for the day. Feels great to see those empty bottles on my counter, knowing that I am making daily steps towards my long term goal. =)

Well, I am going to sign off for now and go get some shut eye. Getting good SLEEP is another goal that I am trying to pay attention to in taking better care of my body. So, ta-ta for now.

Until tomorrow, sweet and slender dreams!


  1. Oh my goodness!!!!!!!!!! I am so looking for this stuff at my health food store. I don't have a Whole Foods but I have 3 health food stores I can call tomorrow! Great find!!! You are right, this would help curb your sweet tooth (or teeth)!

  2. I so thought of you when I saw them doing the samples! I love the orange and plan on trying other flavors, too. Counting on it satisfying my sweet tooth cravings!

    If your health food stores don't have it, give amazon a try.

  3. YES! I found it at my health food store in Midland! They have several flavors. I tried the orange (yummmm) and the cola (yummm). I can't wait to try the other flavors to find my favorite! Thanks for telling us about this!

  4. You are so welcome Jac! PLEASE do let us know about the other flavors. And if you learn of any other yummy treats, let us know about those too!

    Thanks so much for the comments!
