Following a healthy eating plan is one thing… doing it while trying to reign in a caffeine habit is a whole other experience. Part of me would really like to scream at something right now. What would I scream? Well, I think it would go something like this…
I WANT COFFEE! RIGHT NOW!! COFFEE! COFFEE!! NOW! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? I SAID I WANT COFFEE!
So that’s what my brain is saying but I keep telling it “no”. I went to the coffee shop earlier, (yeah, kind of like a drug addict going to a crack house) but I was motivated to take down my first brick so I asked the Lord to help me order herbal tea instead.
This isn’t to say that there is anything wrong with having a cup of coffee, I had one this morning in fact. Where the problem lies is that I’m now addicted to the stuff and that isn’t good for me. I know that if I keep it to one cup in the morning I won’t have any issues. However, when I begin drinking sodas, caffeinated teas and coffee during the day, I have problems like moodiness and bad headaches. Lord knows a girl doesn’t need extra helpings of either.
On the herbal tea note: My favorite so far is Good Earth’s Sweet & Spicy.
