Coffee Free

So I decided to give up coffee, we are having a challenge at the gym and part of that was developing a habit. I decided to develop the habit of not drinking coffee. If anyone knows me you know that is a huge commitment.
Elizabeth Anne asked if I had gotten a headache yet, I told her I was taking excedrin, she said that had more caffeine than coffee, I said no it doesn’t. And back and forth we went, no real winner declared. So I decided to do some research.
Excedrin for migraine has 65 mg, 8 ounces of coffee has 95, I was drinking 32 ounces every morning. Which equals 380 mg of caffeine a day.
I have cut back on caffeine intake from 380 to 65 milligrams a day. Not too shabby if you ask me.
I have replaced the coffee ritual with hot lemon and honey concoction. The hotness somewhat placates my senses.
This is for 6 weeks, I don’t know what will happen at the end of 6 weeks, I can’t promise I won’t go back to coffee. We are old friends after all, and it is not the caffeine I am giving up, it is coffee. The way I drink it is sinful. That is all I will say about that, no need to go into detail.
Next month is my birthday month, I have my birthday week off. I can’t wait! I am going to move my workouts to the morning so I can get them over with and not have to worry about it in the evenings.
Well, happy Thursday, remember it is a gateway day, this Thursday is the gateway to Elizabeth Anne’s birthday!
