Soda Challenge 09 - Results

July 1st marked the end of my 30 day soda Challenge, and I absolutely freaking dominated it.
It was actually incredibly easy to do, but there are some items I wish to discuss. First of all, seeing as how Traci decided Red Bull counts as soda, I had to switch up my AM energy supplement routine (by AM supplement routine I mean drinking Monster's in the shower).
I tried this drink called Verve. This stuff sucks. It is the grittiest stuff I have ever drank, it felt like I was drinking a glass of beach sand. Second, guess what doesn't count as soda... milkshakes. Most of the meals I ate substituted a milkshake for soda... pretty sweet, right? That last bit probably helps explain why I weighed in at 215 when we started this thing and my ending weight was 214. Never the less, I am officially declaring that the Soda Challenge is an ineffective way to loose weight, but more importantly it is a very effective way to increase you milkshake consumption. So I had just beaten the Soda Challenge, what was I gonna do next? I went to the QT first thing in the AM and bought a 52oz Code Red of course (suck it Disneyland)!
So any suggestions on which video game I should pick as my prize?
(BAPs earned for Soda Challenge: Zero, too dang easy to earn any BAPs)

I agree with many that Project Fi is still in its early stages, in “Project” mode, and has not been around long enough to work out all the kinks. The things some people say it offers that other services don’t (cross device calls and texts) can be achieved for free with Google Voice and there is very little difference to the end users. The biggest things Project Fi has going for it are these two things:

1. WiFi Assistant

This could/should be huge… like really super duper huge. Free high speed WiFi all over the place. Stream and browse at will! That said I’ve been on Project Fi for 4 months and have only had 3 or 4 keys. This needs to improve drastically in order to mitigate the large price increase people coming from far more data friendly plans would…
