Gettin' My Flava On

As many of you probably already know, I'm addicted to Diet Dr. Pepper.  I've blogged about this problem many times.  Here, here, here, and here.  I can't even count how many times I've "quit" ddp.  Way too many times.  They are like my cigarette, my drug of choice, my nemesis, my guilty pleasure.    I know how bad they are for me...I even had a patient tell me how bad they are and that I need to quit drinking them...but there are other "bad" things including the sun, too much television, plastic bottles, styrofoam, standing too close to the microwave, etc.  So, to quit ddp...I say bump that.  I will probably never give it up completely.  It just ain't gonna happen.  And to say that I will quit is being unrealistic and I'm setting myself up for failure.  Especially on Mondays like today when I just can't wake up and snap out of it.  I guess I could start drinking coffee.  

So instead of giving it up cold turkey and turning into a grumpy biotch, I'm just going to "cut back" and drink lots of water.  Problem with that is...I don't really like water.  Give me some FLAVOR!!  Enter water enhancers.  I've recently discovered these wonderful little miracles.  Thanks Ta'Selia for letting me try yours :)  I buy the ones without aspartame in them.  They are pretty damn tasty!!  

Here are a few of my favorites...

Great Value Simply Clear: Strawberry Watermelon
Crystal Light Liquid: Blueberry Raspberry
MioEnergy: Green Thunder

Now, I am clearly addicted to these.  Probably in 5 years, these will bad for some ridiculous reason.  Sigh.

Dr. Scholl's Active Series Review

Disclaimer: As part of the Influenster Program, I received one, complimentary pair of Dr. Scholl's Active Series insoles.  All words and opinions are my own. 

You can imagine my excitement when I received this fun little package in the mail!  I love getting my Influenster boxes...I can't wait to dig in and see what product I'm about to review.  Want to be part of Influenster?  Comment below with your email address and I'll randomly choose a few to send an invite to.  I would love to choose all of you but I only get 5 :)

Moving my Influenster box this month, I received a pair of Dr. Scholl's Active Series.  I have to say, I have never purchased insoles before.  I never knew what the point was.  I mean, insoles already come in my shoes!!!  Right??  Wrong!  Well, they do - BUT - they ain't got nothin' on these little beauties (if insoles can be beauties).

They are so comfortable.  Like, walking on cushions comfortable!  I am a pronator.  I roll towards the inside of my foot when I walk.  These insoles don't claim to help that, but I feel like they helped a little bit.  They also helped support my arch.

And they were super easy to use.  All you do is take out your old, and in my case - dirty, (don't judge - I don't wear socks when I wear these shoes because they are mesh and breathable.  And that's my story) insole and trace the size of it onto the new one.  Then cut along the traced line and there you have it - your new, bright, and shiny insole.  

Aren't they pretty?  I never realized how worn out insoles can get.  You know that cushion(y) feel of brand new shoes?  I have it again!  

What fun products have you tried lately?
