new pop alert

i am still crazy busy with work. tomorrow is july 1 canada day! happy birthday (in advance) country. i love being canadian. except for cold winters, canada is the bomb-diggety. anyhoo - tomorrow i have to work because my company decided to make friday our holiday instead. hello long weekend instead of weird mid-week day off! great success.

in other news, last saturday i was walking around with my bf in his hood. we wanted some diet pop to mix our drinks with and the store we usually frequent was already closed. there was a funny little fruit market type of place across the street so we went there. inside i found a diet raspberry ginger ale. i mixed it with white wine and it was DIVINITY. i thought it was a ridiculous brand from far away called "weight watchen" but in fact it is called waist watcher and is made by weight watchers AND is sugar free, aspartame free, caffeine free and sodium free. it does contain splenda which a lot of people badmouth. i like diet pop dammit. i like it and i'm going to continue to drink it. check out the flavors in the link. they only had a couple in store and nothing crazy like chocolate or vanilla cream, but still. i have a feeling these bottles being in canada was a giant fluke but only time will tell!

I love mixing pop with my white wine in the summer - slice a little fruit in it and make a simple sangria :) good stuff. yeah summertime.

Ooooh, sounds good! Hope you have a great C-Day!

OMG I quickly glanced at the pic before reading and I TOTALLY thought it said "Weight Watchen" too! lol

that does sound good! New products make me happy - i'll be on the lookout! Glad they moved your holiday to Friday - that would have been kinda lame if they hadn't!

I think I've seen that pop at the Longo's out near my parents in Mississauga, but I could be mistaken.

I'm so jealous that you get Friday off! Having yesterday off totally screwed with my head. It feels like Monday today!

I am SO glad you said that about diet soda! I love it, too, and see no problem with it fulfilling a sweet craving. Those soda bottles in your photo look refreshing.

Also: Bon Appetit has an article about Vancouver in the latest issue (Aug., I think). It looks so cool! (Isn't that where you live?)

One more thing: How do you stay so consistent?! I am totally off track and even WW online didn't get me going. I really like your attitude; so, what would you tell yourself if you had 45 pounds to lose? I'd love to hear some inspirational words. Thanks!

You ran past me again near the park last night! One of these days I'm going to have to stop you. I would just feel guilty about interrupting your workout!

I love me some slightly chilled soda, too. I usually toss mine in the freezer for 20-30 minutes so it's just on the slushy side. Yummy!
