Day 4 Admitting my coffee addiction

Saturday, September 18, 2010

I've been on my journey for 4 months now and I really didn't know how much calories were actually in the coffee I drink. When I looked up the calories for my coffee I was surprised to find that there were little to no calories, which to me says hey maybe drinking coffee during this journey will be alright. Oh boy did I think wrong. See I like to have cream and sugar in my coffee. And it was hard to believe how many calories I was actuallytaking in just by adding cream and sugar. And bends I drink pretty much 2 1/2 pots of coffee a day then oh yes buddy it will add up and quick. So what should I do? Should I give it up completely? Do I leave the creamer out? Cause taste like crap without sugar, and I'm very picky when it comes to my sugar. Or do I just give it up completely. Well I thought about how hard it was for me to give up soda, which wasn't bad, I gave that up cold turkey. Then I thought about how hard it is for me to quit smoking, which I'm doing good so far I had 4 yesterday. and I thought well I don't really want to make too many changes at once cause that may cause me to crack in no time and be right back to old habits. So I have come to the conclusion that I'm gonna start by easing off of coffee. Start of by drinking less and less everyday. It is truely the only way. I'm gonna try to replace my coffee addiction with lots of water. I already get my recommend amount but I may add some green tea into it. Spice it up a little bit.

Today of course my 4 mile walk/jog then I'm thinkin pilates, and maybe strength training. We'll see

    Try Stevia to sweeten. Just no creamer. That is what I do. You are doing great, keep it up!
