Caffeine

So, for the last few weeks, I’ve been having a can of Coca-cola each day as my caffeine source, much like people drink coffee each morning. The advantage of this is that it gives me a bit of pep, as I’m not a morning person, and I enjoy the taste of it. Unfortunately, it has more calories and sugar than coffee and is worse for my body.

Previously, when I went a bit crazy with pop, I decided to take a break, to reset. I am going to do that again.

Read the fun I had last time:
Week Without Caffeine
Week Two Without Caffeine

I don’t think I’ll cut myself off completely. I might have a Coke or Coke Zero here and there, or some other soda beverage, but I don’t want it to be a consistent thing. I want things like pop to become a treat, rather than a requirement for starting my day. It is with that in mind that I’m going to spend a week where I can only have one or two cans of coke, and hope for the best.

I know this will help in my long term weight loss, and when I was nearing my goal before, it was a helpful thing to do. Wish me luck…

    I’ve tried to start my day at the office lately by guzzling a 12oz bottle of water first thing. I’d read that it helps give your body a little bit of a pep start and helps your brain get focused too. More water in general is good for you too. I still drink loads of coffee, but you might try adding that to your routine. The additional influx of fluids first thing also makes you drink whatever else in less quantity.

      I’m drinking lots of water, but for me that’s like pulling teeth. I really don’t enjoy the taste of the water I have. It is Brita filtered tap water, and it just doesn’t taste very good. I might have to buy cases of Dasani, as I seem to prefer that.

      I am doing everything I can to try to get this weight off again… *sigh* but I also know that if I push myself too hard, I’ll burn out of this “diet” quickly versus being able to sustain it for multiple months.
