Initially this thread was non-skate related because I’m not skating (who’d have guessed?) but I am a creature of habit and unfortunately I have a few bad ones.
Recently I started drinking Diet Coke again. It started with my wife buying me a Dr Pepper and it was a fast slippery slope back to the odd taste of artificial flavouring and colouring. Crazy thing is the first sip of Diet Coke after a long hiatus always tastes strange and not in a good way. It only takes one can though to get the urge again. Right now I’m on 2 cans a day. That’s below my old average which was 1.5l a day.
This time around I have definitely noticed that since I started drinking fizzy drinks again I have a lot more gas in me making me fart more and my digestion is a bit out of whack. I think this kind of proves the point that Diet Coke isn’t something to ingest.
It just sucks because in these testing times I feel like I need some sort of comfort thing. I’d rather have a few cokes than get back on the booze…
Skate related, I had a bad habit of shuffling my front foot which meant if the soles of my shoes weren’t solid I could wear through them in weeks. Kind of annoying.
