A Day without coffee
What started this thinking about calories is my sister Biz (or Elizabeth if you want to know her real name, but I almost always call her Biz), who works for US Airways worked a flight into Milwaukee late Saturday night. When she got up on Sunday am, she rented a car and drove out to visit. She joined Weight Watchers in September last fall and has dropped 40 lbs! She looks great.
I, am not a dieter anymore. I was on so many diets throughout my adult life that never did anything except shift the weight around. Now, what I do is cut back whenever I feel like my clothes are too tight. As long as I fit into my duds, I am golden! But.....she dropped 40 lbs. Sigh.
So, when I got up this morning, I thought-Today, I will start the day without coffee.
It was a thought. Not really a good thought, but a thought. I forgot that without coffee, I don't feel like I am firing on all cylinders until my body gets used to the no coffee situation.
Well, I gave it a go, but here it is at 2:30 in the afternoon and I broke down and hit my emergency refrigerated coffee and made a large, icy glass full. Ahhhhhh. I really do L.O.V.E coffee. I love the aroma and the ambiance. I think that instead of quitting, I will slowly cut back. That sounds a little more reasonable to me.
Have a lovely afternoon, with or without coffee!
