I have to give up coffee…… I don’t want to give it up but I have to….
I gave up regular pop to help me lose weight. Then I gave up diet pop cause that helps pack on pounds versus actually getting it off and my hubby has given me so many reasons why aspartame is killing me. I did suffer from frequent headaches and body aches so I did take a little heed to his warning. Since giving up the pop, I have felt better. But a gradual better. Not an overwhelming better.
Well after yesterday, I decided I should give up the coffee as well. I had my regular cup of coffee and then the office ladies decided to get Caribou. I didn’t want to pass up the yummy iced mocha, so I got it. And shortly after drinking that one, I felt crazy hyper. Inside I wanted to scream and run around, not that that would help but that’s how it felt. On the outside I was trying to compose myself and be the professional that I am. Ha ha ha…. But then I had lunch and got sick. I felt terrible, like I was going to vomit. Which made my anxiety go high. So then I really was a crazy lady at work. I stuck it out until 3 pm and with one hour left, I asked if I could go home. I was crazy all the way home in the car but once home….. I laid down and felt so much better.
So I really feel lead to quit the caffeine altogether. I am nervous already by nature and the shaking feelings are not worth it. I may be getting sick separately from all of this cause today, I got really dizzy in the office. So trying not to freak out about that…… but aside from all of that, I don’t need one more thing that will make me feel crazy.
I’m not going cold turkey though. I’m going to have a quarter of a cup of coffee with milk in it, in the morning. That’s it. Then if I do go for Caribou, I’ll try the decaf iced mocha. See if that tastes good enough.
Hey if I can do it with pop, I can do it with coffee. Unfortunately it hasn’t helped shed those pounds!
