Now that your blood sugar is stabilizing you're probably just a lot more aware of its impact on you. I'm pretty caffeine-sensitive myself, and at long last I'm cutting out all but the first cup of coffee in the morning. I'm still having 2 small decafs at work, but I'll be phasing even those out in a few weeks.
"The stimulated nerve cells release the hormone epinephrine (adrenaline), which increases heart rate, blood pressure, and blood flow to muscles, decreases blood flow to the skin and organs, and causes the liver to release glucose. Caffeine also increases levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine."
Which explains a little about why it's somewhat addictive, and also why it gives people the jitters - a dumping of adrenaline plus glucose.
Challenge 1: Add activity at home to my must-do list.
Challenge 2: Bedtime is now going to be 11:30.
Challenge 3: Leave work on time. It'll all be there in the morning. Whatevs.
