Coffee Intake-First blog entry

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

Well this is my first blog entry and what I want to talk about is coffee or caffeine intake. I recently quit smoking and although some people think they have to give up coffee because it is a trigger for cravings, I made sure the first day of my quit I had a coffee. My way of thinking being that if I was giving up cigs then I had to have something. Well Its almost been one month since I quit and I have had several coffees a day almost to replace the nicotine but since starting the spark I still get up and have one in the morning but most of the time I don't even finish the coffee. Its like from eating better(not saying the best) and exercising regularly I have all the energy the coffee was giving me.I have to say I'm very impressed by spark people. Even doing weight Watchers I always had to have my coffee. Maybe it was all just psychological? I feel so free. Like I have thrown all my crutches away. Yeah a week in and already a new outlook on my new and healthy life emoticon

    Very good for you! I've read in places that for every ounce of caffiene you drink, you have to add that to your water intake to replace what it takes away. That cut my intake down dramatically.

    Exercise can fix almost anything. It's a wonderful thing!!!
