Caffeine-free day: I guess miracles can happen

May 5th, 2013 at 01:15 pm

I had my first no-caffeine day in close to twenty years yesterday. I did not slap anyone. It is past 1 pm and I still have not had coffee, nor, weirdly, desired it. My spouse likes having his two cups a day.

I would be lying if I told you I had no withdrawal symptoms. The third day of tapering off coffee I had excess saliva and a runny nose. What was manageable was 1 cup of coffee, then 1/2 cup the next day, and 1/4 cup the day after with one half-cup green tea in the afternoon.
Day four was the caffeine-free day.

And I found the ring I thought I lost, in the bathroom cabinet, behind some supplement bottles

Haven't seen any waistline reduction yet, but I did fit into my Lilly Pulitzer (RIP) pants today.

My starting food plan weight is 170 lbs. My mother was only that heavy when she was on cancer drugs. Some US charts say the ideal weight for me should be at 136 lb, but 146-150 lbs would look good on me.

If I can lose ten pounds, I'll start to think I actually have some control over my life and create positive outcomes.

12-year no-fee mortgage rate dropped 9%, to 3.4%. Our credit union does not seem to offer 10-year mortgage products.

    I'm on Day 3 of Healthy Living: good-bye to carbs, hello to protein. I made it three consecutive days to the Y and logged 7 miles total on the treadmill. I've slept better and have only had one cup of coffee each morning. So, I am hopeful for a healthier version of myself. I will join you on your journey!

    YAY Laura!!

    I must visit my local community center or Y. I tried once but they cancelled my account and tried to fine me because some YMCA employee entered a wrong digit from my credit card.
