I Quit Drinking Soda

Stop trashing your body and the planet.

I quit drinking soda and you can too!

Those tricky makers of these sugary drinks sure know how to hook us and keep us hooked. How else can they keep selling their products?

Did you know that one 12 ounce soda has over 9 teaspoons of sugar? Nine!! Just imagine putting nine teaspoons of sugar in a glass of tea. Yuck! Sure, it can help get you going in the morning, or help keep you going until your next break (and your next soda). But the consequences of ingesting that much sugar at one sitting is, well frankly, keeping you from living a spectacular life – the life of your dreams. If it hasn’t already made you sick, if you don’t already have to live with dis-ease, no worries. There’s a disease waiting for you in the next can/bottle/glass.

The good news is that you can quit!

The answer is here. I Quit Drinking Soda is a program designed to give you all of the information, support, and accountability you need to conquer that beast once and for all.

It is a self-paced online program inside of a private Facebook group. There are some worksheets (yes, you have to do some homework), helpful articles and videos, support from me as your wellness guide, support from other members who are walking in your same shoes, and accountability.

There are also a couple of bonuses. One is a daily diary template. Living mindfully is a gozillion times better than living reactively, unprepared, or unaware. A second bonus is inclusion in another Facebook group focused on the effects of sugar in your body. This group is founded by my teacher at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, Joshua Rosenthal.

In addition to all of the above, I will be “live” inside the group once a week to answer any questions, or address concerns. And to celebrate your wins!! I will also be hosting a weekly video conference to provide more support and education.

All of this is included in a one time membership fee of $97. You will have lifetime access to the group, with all of the worksheets, videos, etc.

To join, click on the menu at the top and go to “shop”. You will find the button to pay the fee. Upon notification from PayPal, I will add you to the group (look for the invitation in your notifications) and you will be on your way to living your best life! Woo hoo!!

If you have any questions, you can comment below, or go to the contact page and send me an email.

I can be found on Facebook at SH Wellness and on Instagram at Suzanne.horrocks. I look forward to serving you! Thanks.

**I have created a Facebook page specially for the program called I Quit Drinking Soda. Go over there and “like” it too. Thanks!

I’m comfortable, thanks.

Have you heard the saying “growth is outside of your comfort zone”?

Maybe you don’t even want to grow. Perhaps your life is the BEST, MOST FABULOUS life you could ever imagine. If so, congratulations! I would wager that the majority of us couldn’t/wouldn’t say that with complete honesty and sincerity.

Stepping outside of your comfort zone is growth. It is expansion. The box you are in gets bigger. The walls retreat a little. You get more space to move about the cabin. It feels good, yes?

What does stepping outside your comfort zone mean?

Picture this. It’s comfortable to sit there in you slippers, comfy pants that don’t bind, right by the heater, with your favorite beverage within reach. That is comfortable. That’s your comfort zone.

Outside of your comfort zone though, it’s hard walking down the basement steps. It hurts your knees and your hips. Your pants are too tight. And you don’t like to look at your reflection in the mirror. This is outside of your comfort zone. This is uncomfortable.

However, to get rid of the creaky knees and clackey hips, to be comfortable in your skin – and clothes, to love and honor your reflection, you will have to get uncomfortable on purpose.

You have to hmmm…… maybe exercise? That means sweating. That means feeling like you can’t breathe. That means your thighs are on fire. All of that is purposeful uncomfortableness. And all of that begins to lessen the pain of walking down the basement steps. The sweating, burning, gasping for air is – WAY – very very very uncomfortable. But it will end soon. Your endorphins will flood your brain. And you will feel great. Your comfort zone will reach a new high.

And your uncomfortable zone shrank.

For one, you learned that you are going to keep breathing. You learned that your thighs are still there. They didn’t burn up. The sweat will dry. Basically, you didn’t die.

For two, your clothes start fitting better. It will get easier to walk down the steps. And when you look in the mirror, you can congratulate the reflection for being so strong.

You, my friend, have just stretched your comfort zone because you stepped outside of comfort and got seriously uncomfortable. (Believe me, your next workout will be ever so slightly easier too.)

You just experienced growth and expansion. You just stepped closer to you BEST, MOST FABULOUS life. Keep going Sis!
