Don't get me wrong. I love coffee. I love coffee too much. I love it so much that I recently bought a little Latte charm for my Pandora bracelet. and I don't like it black (blech). I like my lattes and my coffeemate and my sticky-sweet flavoured syrups. I like my coffee fatty and creamy and full of calories. And, since returning to work, I've been loving it 1-3 times a day...and that adds up. It could even add up to the 15lbs gained last year.
So I decided that 2012 was a clean slate. I've kicked coffee before and I have now done it again.
This isn't to say that I will never have a coffee again. I just want to get back to the place where I can have a latte after my Saturday run as a TREAT instead of every day as a necessity.
|I wasn't kidding...|
In the past when I have kicked coffee (and I've done it probably 8 times in the last 15 years), I am always amazed at how little coffee had anything to do with keeping me awake or energizing my mornings. I usually awake clearer-headed and with energy to spare (probably from sleeping better).
I know that right now it is a good move for me. but don't kid yourself - I'm really looking forward to my latte this Saturday :P
