I drank soda pop like water when I was young. Pepsi was my favorite. The 1992 Pepsi commercial with Cindy Crawford in the denim shorts and white tank top – that was so me back then.
Too bad nobody tells you what all that sugar and caffeine on a daily basis does to your body 20 years later. Still, a sign with the vintage Pepsi logo grabs my attention as I absolutely adore Pepsi Throwback made with real sugar.
Going caffeine and sugar free is not an easy road – headaches, body aches, moodiness, and oh – the fatigue! Thank God I am off from the day job this week. The aches and pains have been less and less each day. And, I can now say with confidence that I am 100% caffeine free.
Sugar cravings, particularly chocolate, seem to have disappeared with the caffeine. It’s not that I’ll never have another Chai Tea Latte from Starbucks or enjoy a chocolate dessert again, and I might even have a Pepsi someday. I just don’t intend to return to that being my daily diet regimen.
