I'm really really tired

Thursday, June 06, 2013

I did it.

So far today I haven't had a lick of caffeine. I was ok during the drive to work, probably because I overslept and got a full 8 hours. As soon as I got to my desk though I could feel my eyes drooping. I'm also having a sort of anxious feeling I get when I lay in bed all day. Like I don't feel comfortable in my own skin.

I've been continuing my research on Whole30, and read their "Coffee Manifesto"

While they tout coffee's benefits, they also warn that if you feel that you addicted you need to reevaluate consuming a substance that can make you feel icky and dependent. I really need to get this junk out of my system, because I feel like crap right now.

Though technically coffee & tea is ok on Whole30, caffeine is NOT allowed on my smoothie detox that I'm doing this weekend. I'm hoping that by day 3 I won't feel this poorly anymore.

I survived the work bbq too, but I did make not-so-good choices. A scoop of pulled pork, grilled chicken, half a corn cob, pasta salad (mayo based), coleslaw, and a good humor ice cream. Even though I'm about to fall asleep, I think I'll make a trip down to the gym in a bit. A nice slow treadmill run sounds like a great idea.

Tomorrow I'll be on a smoothie cleanse and bf will be leaving for duty, so we've got to get rid of all the food I cooked. Gonna turn the riced cauliflower into Paleo pizza crust, top it with fresh mozz, homemade sauce, and whatever is left over. I think I've got some pork loin, chicken thighs, eggplant, asparagus, and broccoli. Weird pizza, but oh well.

    Look into Teecino. It taste like coffee and satisfies without the addiction. I'm so happy I found it..

    You've got a plan and that helps!

Best of luck with the coffee. Not something I can survive without so I feel your pain.
