Okay, so it happened. Murphy’s law at its finest.
The other day, I ran into the Chevron station to purchase gas and I noticed Monster Energy Drinks on sale: 2 for $4.
Now, I don’t like admitting to everyone that I drink these crazy drinks, but I swear it’s only a once-a-month thing. Do they really give me energy? Maybe not, but I like to think they do. At 50 years old, the thought of a caffeine buzz is one of the more exciting things I look forward to.
Besides, it’s the sugar-free Monster (you know, my justification).
We all have our vices!
I paid for my gas and my two Monsters, headed out to my Sequoia, and began filling it up. As I waited, I popped open a Monster, took a long swig and then, as I tilted the can back down, a drop mysteriously plopped out of it, into my left eye.
How…I have no clue, but it happened.
The moment that one little drop hit, it felt like someone had poured acid onto my eyeball. Five minutes later, my eye was still burning and that’s when it hit me: ”If one drop of this burns my eye, what the heck is it doing to the inside of my body?”
I proceeded to throw both Monsters away (completely full, mind you) and swore I would never drink another energy drink again.
Just food for thought folks: if something harms the outside of your body, it’s likely harming the inside of your body.
That’s why the Personal Trainer Food program is based on natural food groups and not crazy shakes or powders or any other fads or trendy diet tricks.
Just nature’s food.
