A few months ago, I decided to give up caffeinated coffee for Lent. I feel like I was successful with this goal. However, I actually drank coffee two times. Both times, I was in drive-through at Starbucks and routine took over. I didn’t even realize what I had done until I took a few sips. A swear word or two came out once I remembered; then I thought
YOLO carpe diem, and finished my drink (I don’t like to waste money). If I remember correctly, I may have had a small pastry or a piece of dark chocolate that made taste it taste better.
(If it helps any, I usually get tall size.)
If I were in a tight situation, and needed some type of pick up, I turned to decaffeinated coffee (I used the Publix brand Kerig cups).This happened about once a week. Regularly, though, I choose to drink lemon water,or a variety of green and black teas. I do such a better job of drinking water, that I often feel fatigued if I go to long without it. The timing could not be better, with the warmer weather approaching, more running, and CrossFit.
