Giving up coffee?
Thursday, October 11, 2012
Anyone that knows me is well aware of my affinity for the warm nutty goodness that is called coffee. I am dependent it on it and fairly grumpy without it.
I went cold turkey once in college and felt wonderful. Had more energy my TOM was easier and my skin looked great then I'm pretty sure end of term exams came up and I went back to my old love..coffee.
My fiance and I are avid coffee drinkers, to the point that our wedding party favors are coffee related...I haven't made up my mind totally about giving up my "liquid life giver" but I am seriously contemplating it. I accounts for 120-400 calories of my day (depending on how many coffee's I drink in a day.) I know it causes water retention and I think health wise it would be my best bet.
I don't think I could do cold turkey again, I really love my fiance and would hate to call off the wedding in a lack of caffeine rage. lol
I think tomorrow I will order a half decaf and see how it goes. Wish me luck!
