I've tried many times before to quit drinking coffee and I can't do it.
Yesterday was HELL! I had a headache, I was cranky, I ate two pop tarts and I burned dinner. I woke up this morning feeling like I had the flu and I waited until the last possible moment to get out of bed because I had nothing to
I just brewed a pot of coffee.
Several people (thanks Barb) have expressed concern that I was going cold Turkey and stopping everything at once. That's probably not the best idea...especially during the holidays.
What i AM going to do....is:
COFFEE ~ Cut back on the amount of coffee I drink. I normally drink 6 cups. I'm going to cut back to 3 cups over the next month.
DIET COKE ~ Cut back on the amount of Diet Coke I drink. I normally drink one-two a day. I'm going to pour half a can in my glass and throw the rest away. NO MORE $1 GIANT CUPS from Mc Donalds.
WINE~ Cut back on the amount of WINE I drink. Ideally, I'd like to drink wine one day a week. Perhaps on Friday or Saturday. Right now, I have a couple glasses of red wine a couple times a week and sometimes a martini too. This has increased significantly since moving back to Denver....and seeing my in laws frequently. They are moving at the end of next month.
