addiction

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.
