Health: Day 8

It's Day 8 of 30!

Two times over the past week, I consumed drinks that I had pretty much eliminated: coffee and Sprite.  Upon first drink, neither tasted like I remembered.  The coffee didn't hold the same comfort as it once did.  I realized this, but kept drinking.  After a while, that comforting feeling started to return.  My experience with the Sprite was similar.  Upon first swallow, I was not impressed.  Why did I miss it?!  But, again, it didn't stop me from drinking it.  After a while, my taste buds adapted and I started to enjoy it again.

I was conscious when I started to drink the beverages.  I realized the taste wasn't as awesome as my brain had led me to recall.  Yet, I continued to drink.  I can't even say that my consciousness subsided.  With each swallow, the taste became more and more appealing.  I knew with each drink that my taste buds were adapting.

Sodas are a rarity for me now.  I hope they will remain that way.  Coffee, on the other hand, has supposed health benefits.  But, I really enjoy it most with French Vanilla creamer.  The creamer itself — yeah, not so healthy.  I know wine has health benefits too.  Maybe I'll start consuming that instead. ;)

Be open to what comes.
