no caffeine in 2 days


Thursday, June 05, 2014

I'm so proud of myself. For the last 2 days, I haven't had any caffeine during the day or on my drive to work/home. This really big for me.

I started to feel sick from allergies, or a cold, hard to tell the difference sometimes, Monday afternoon. And since then, I've had no desire to want a Dr Pepper. Each time I had the chance for one, I realized it didn't sound good in least. And instead of giving into habit, I decided to go w/what my body said it didn't really want/need and what the heck, save 200+ calories!

Today has been harder. I think it's b/c I'm drinking water w/a bunch of ice... which doesn't help w/soothing my throat or stomach. I'm going to finish up this glass and then get some luke warm water next to see how that goes.

I keep thinking - how awesome would it for me to get through this illness/allergies and then be free from this habit too all the while not noticing the caffeine withdrawal b/c I already feel cruddy.

All in all, I'm actually glad to not feel well b/c I don't WANT a Dr Pepper.

    If you have to drink Dr. Pepper, I found that the diet with cherry is really good. It has no calories. I don't want you to go back to it, because water is better, but if you need the "fix" after the illness goes away. However, way to go.

    Yay girl! That is awesome (not that you're sick, but that your body is sick of the soda!). I hope you're able to stick with it.... your body will thank you in the long run :)
