Energy Boost.

9 Jan
I remember when I was working in Retail, a coworker of mine decided to give up caffeine. In fact, one of my other coworkers there (who was a Starbucks junkie herself) decided to join in. I thought “why not?”. Let’s just say that I lasted a week without caffeine, and it wasn’t easy.

I’m going to do this again, but succeed. The thing is, I can’t tolerate caffeine. I know I’ve been drinking it (I’m talking coffee) for so long that I almost don’t know what it’s like to be off it. Sometimes I’ll do the half-caf variety, but in the end I always find myself replacing caffeine instead of food. The coffee/soda caffeine mix blocks out my ability to sense when I’m hungry.

Secondly, it really bothers my GI tract. It’s one of those things that I sometimes can have but when it bothers me, it really causes trouble. It’s too risky, and why risk it? In the end, it’s not worth it.

The replacement? There isn’t one. It’s no coffee or caffeine. Not getting a coffee is going to be tough. Instead, I need to reprogram my brain that food is fuel, not coffee. Who wants to drink their calories anyhow?

I hope to survive this time.
