Yesterday’s coffee-free day was relatively “easy” in the morning! I’ve been drinking as much water as I can upon waking (about one of my Nalgene bottles, i.e. 32 ounces) which seems to be waking me up alongside my cup of mint green tea. The caffeine count is definitely weaker than a cup of java, but I’ll take it for now.
I exercised yesterday, which helped give me energy for the rest of the day. Hooray!
However, after being in the heat in a very stressful afternoon at work, I came home, exhausted. It was one of those soul-sucking, come-home-and-lay-down-in-the-fetal-position days. Weekends altogether are that way for me.
However, I don’t believe this exhaustion was caused by my coffee withdrawal. It’s really how I feel every weekend.
I don’t necessarily look forward to day 3’s level of energy without coffee, but I can say with confidence that I think it’s the best decision for me. I’m not feeling “shaky” in the morning and I am getting by without it!
Here’s to day 3!
In peace & health,
