Ready! Sweat! Go!: Day 9

Today is the first day of lent.  I have decided to give up two things and they will both help me with my new 31-day Challenge.  I am giving up all sugary drinks and candy.  I've done pop before and I don't drink it on a regular basis so it was always an easy one.  I'm going to expand it to include any kind of sugary drink.  This includes lemonade, cappuccino's from the gas station or mocha's from the coffee shop.  I'm going to help to do some research on Gatorade or Powerade...those have beneficial electrolytes that help replenish energy after burning calories. 

Candy's going to be the hard one.  I am a choc-oholic.  And with Easter candy coming out (Peeps, Jelly Beans), this will test my willpower.  But I know I can do it!
