March came in like a lion.

Today, the snow is mostly gone in the valley.

It's the beginning of a new month.  Hard to believe it is March already.  I have set myself a big challenge (for me) for this month.

Those who know me very well know that I am a fan of diet Coke. It is my "comfort food."  But knowing that it is not the best thing for me (with constant reminders from my teenage daughter),  I am attempting to give up drinking any kind of soda for the entire month.

That might not sound too hard for some people.  But I don't drink coffee or iced tea.  I like juice, but don't like to drink it too much because of the calories.  Of course, I try to drink lots of water, but I do want some variety.  (Yes, I do drink milk, too.) I suspect I will be experimenting with different drinking concoctions this month. If you have any great low-cal drinks you like, feel free to leave recipes or links in the comments.

One day down, thirty more to go.

Sounds like a real challenge. Good luck. You can do most any thing that you set your mind to. I know you can do this too but it is certain to be difficult as old habits are hard to break -- as is old ways of thinking. I'm rooting for you too.
