Day 1 - No Coffee
Saturday, October 10, 2009
I've been through this before, and wow, am I in for days and days of migraine-like headaches! Even though I don't drink much coffee, I've decided that I really don't like a lot of things about it and that the slight energy-boost is not worth it. It's the only source of caffeine in my life and time to expunge it. Day 1 reminds me how much of this process is so much mental, as well as physical. What do I miss initially? The warmth of holding the cup while I do SP, etc. Yes, I do have herbal tea handy to still be able to do that. Fortunately, I do not like the taste of coffee any longer. Knowing I was going to do this, I purposely eliminated any condiments that would make it taste yummy. Like vanilla or similar. I got to the point where I'd be drinking it and wondering why I do this to myself when I just do not like the taste anymore. I know I'll make it through the day and then the headache will begin. Yikes. That's the hardest part.
As far as a raw diet, I've decided it's not for me. I will, however, add more raw stuff to my days and learn from some of the tips of that regimen.
Have a fun day, sparkfriends.
