Well I did it! I got through the day with NO COFFEE. Did I tell you about the coffee I’ve been drinking lately? It is about as evil as you can get when it comes to coffee.
It is instant and caramel “flavoured”.. as in they sell the instant with that flavouring somehow coated on it. I hate to think of what chemicals go in there to create the flavour. Then because it is instant I can’t drink it without sugar (I have no sugar in my espresso) so I would add a heaped teaspoon of sweet delicious raw sugar to my caramel chemical delight. I was having 2 of those a day.
Freaking delicious but SO bad for me. Here are the things I added into my life by starting to drink this shit on my return from our holiday:
1. 2 heaped teaspoons of sugar + whatever sugar was part of the mysterious coffee flavour.
2. An unknown quantity of “flavour” chemicals.
3. Caffeine – before I went away I was predominantly drinking decaf.
That’s a trio of body changing shit, truth be told, all providing a temporary good feeling but slowly hampering the ability of my cells to do what they need to do.
I have yawned a lot today but I will get over it. Energy is better when it is natural. I know because I’ve experienced it before.
Here is today’s food diary that I logged into My Fitness Pal. I’m doing this on my phone so I hope it all works.
Let’s hope the next 20 days are so good.
