Doing the Decaf thing!


I have come to the realization that I LOVE COFFEE..i mean i REALLY LOVE LOVE COFFEE! Each morning when I get to work I have 2, 3, maybe even 4 cups on those sleepy mornings.

This LOVING coffee thing is rather new and came about all the sudden. In November ('07), I made the decision to completely give up soft drinks, and I must say it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. BUT the mistake I have made is filling those times that I wanted a soft drink with...you guessed it..COFFEE! Now I also need to say that I drink my coffee black (no nothing is added) which is not bad for you (if you can drink it in moderation). The caffeine actually speeds up your metabolism...this is a good thing.

So in saying all of this, I am making another decision to change to decaf (for most of the cups I drink). It never occurred to me that I was "addicted" until we were at the beach this past week and the coffee machine at our place was not 'up to par'. In light of this, each morning after working out we would stop and get a cup of fresh brewed coffee (and of course I could not just get a small cup of coffee...a medium or large was much more satisfying!)

Anyways as I sit here and write this post, I am enjoying a warm cup of DECAF coffee...
I will have to keep you posted on how it is working out for me later =)
