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" whole9life.com/2011/01/t
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.
