Two weeks have passed since I first declared “decreased coffee!”
I gave myself a 4-a-week limit to cups-o-joe. And I’ve been successful! The 1st week, I only had 3. And yesterday, if you count the decaf cup at night, I then technically had 4. Yet safe to say, 3 seems like good new goal. So my new limit has lessened by one, and 3 is the new magic number. I don’t think it’ll be too difficult.
On pondering this whole ‘tea > coffee’ for my caffeine intake, I realize that making a declaration that I will cut out coffee permanently from my system, is dubious. Because if I give myself that goal then I’ll be in for a let down if I ever end up having a family, because I don’t think I could get through the first few years of children and sleepless nights without a little help from my friends (or other relatives of the same wonderful bean family). So my goal is not to eradicate coffee forever. For my backing off from the often 2-a-day cup, was for my poor frazzled internal organs, who weren’t handling it well. Since a very young age, my stomach has shown that it’s a bit fragile and quirky – so I want to be more delicate because the pain isn’t worth it in the end. I can supplement tea, for that’s delightful in the same, and much lower quantities of that legalized drug.
These may seem like unorganized ramblings without much purpose. But then again, I only had one cup of Earl Grey this morning, and I’ve kept my mind busy. It might be in a system overload right about now. 🙂 Have a wonderful week. September is in full swing.
So I leave with a question, what is something you couldn’t possibly see giving up for life? It’s a broad question, so have fun with the answers.
