My Sonic addiction

I. Love. Sonic. Love it. Two locations just opened up within 5 miles of my house: one conveniently on my way to work and one conveniently on my way home from the kids' daycare. Oh, the temptation! I have been slurping down cranberry lime-aids like there is no tomorrow. I love them, love them, love them. Since I have started losing again after the crazy birth of DS (a story for another time), I decided I should look up the caloric content of my beloved cranberry lime-aid. It really wasn't too bad -- nothing I couldn't justify if I cut it down to once a week or so. What really burst my bubble were the actual contents of this drink. Are you ready? Sprite, lime juice, and cranberry juice cocktail. Hmph! I know it's silly, but I had this drink all hyped up in my head being made with some mysterious concoction of awesomeness. Now I know I can make the damn thing at home -- and with Sprite Zero! The other thing that bothers me is the whole pop thing. I mean, I knew it had some carbonation in it, but it just never occurred to me that I was guzzling down cup after cup of POP. I have been religious about avoiding pop since I got banded (except when I was unfilled completely during pregnancy), so I am a little disappointed in myself for breaking that rule. I've been working on phasing them out of my life. Lime-aids, that is. Not rules. Well, maybe rules too!

Hi Maria, thanks for your comment on my blog. I love those lime-aids too, but I think the ice is what I love the best. Have a great day!
