Day 2: Back on Caffeine


Caffeination - and quitting a New Years ResolutionYes I gave in. Tuesday night I got 1.5 hours of sleep. I couldn’t function with out caffeine yesterday. Last night I was in the bed for 10 hours. I received about 8 hours (which is a huge improvement from the 4-5 I’ve been getting on average). Between late nights, early mornings for work and an early Spring in Michigan, I have permanent bags under my eyes. What’s that Bare Naked Ladies song? “Who needs sleep? You’re never gonna get it. Who needs Sleep? Tell me what that’s for.”

I woke up every hour on the 1/2 hour to blow my nose and cough last night. So this AM, I took the last cup in the pot. In my defense (other than the reasons listed above), it’s 1/2 caf. And at 8:30am in the morning – a very late start to the day for me. I needed something to clear the cobwebs and go. Do any of these resonate with you?

So much for that New Year’s Resolution. Anyone else kill there’s and how long did it take?

Day 3 Uncaffeinated.


Chai Latte – Homemade chai latte that is. That’s how I’m making it through this quitting caffeine kick I’m on. Monday was rough. Tuesday was¬†slightly¬†better. Today – not so bad. I slept great last night. Tomorrow, I’m going to ween off booze. “WHAT?!” you’re saying? Yes. It’s time. I need to lose a few lbs and this is all a good start. These are not New Years Resolutions. I’ve been weening off coffee/pop for a couple weeks now. Just thought a date would be a good start. I’m not saying that I’m quitting for good. Just for now.
