mixed feelings about coffee

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

I am torn about whether or not I should be drinking even a little coffee. I suspect coffee is one of those silent triggers that keeps me under optimal functioning.

Today I made no coffee and I am a slinky-like in my energy level. Started the day with a bike ride and that did not energize me.
Ate a macrobiotic lunch and that didnt energize me. I really dislike needing coffee. I had decaf tea with a little chai. Nada.

Perhaps tomorrow will be better without coffee

PS listening to Game of Thrones on audio book while I work and loving it!

    We were just talking about coffee on rounds yesterday, trying to guess who drinks it based on the color of our teeth. One of my coworkers said that a study was just published with an open-ended uptrending curve representing the correlation between amount of coffee consumption and lifespan. I need to read it with my own eyes before I start adding a second cup in the morning.

    i usually have one cup of coffee in the morning, but I have also gone through times when I give it up completely. Once I get through the withdrawal headaches I'm usually good to go. My energy level is fine.

    I have 2 cups of coffee a day. Anything more and the jitters take over.

    I managed to go down to 2 cups a day ..... but me and my coffee enjoy the quiet in the morning .... makes my day go better ..... maybe you should quit slowly rather than cold turkey if that is your ultimate goal. Roc

    I cannot live without my coffee and I am totally 100% ok with that!

    There are so many different opinions of whether it's harmful or helpful, you never know who to believe. If you think you should go without- more power to you!
