We went to the local convenience store tonight to get a slurpee. We had just finished playing at the park, the kids were hot and a slurpee seemed to be the thing that would "hit the spot." As we stood in line I watched as several customers came in with their 95 ounce refill cups...every single one of them was overweight. Do they not realize that it is the soda that is making them fat? Do they realize they are teaching their kids bad habits? HELLO! I bet Philip Morris wishes he invented cola. I drink the occasional diet Coke... It tastes great, especially with fresh squeezed lemon, but it is not an every day thing. Please don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to be on a soap box, it was just an eye opener for me and it made me feel sad. I try to be a good example for my kids, there are many times that I fail, but they know that exercising and eating healthy is important to me. Hopefully it will resonate in them as they become adults and they will make healthy choices.
