Honesty day 13: UGGHHHHHH

Sunday, January 18, 2015

I feel like crap, I am having what you call caffeine withdrawals and so I am truly hating life right now. It is day four with no coffee on top of the fact that it is day 13 with no form of energy drink or soda. I know it is great that I am drinking so much more water but damn does this really have to suck this bad. I seriously have no energy and I have been very moody and cranky all day.

Honestly my sparkpeople friends is there an easier way? What can I possibly do to beat these energy lows and mood swings on this caffeine detox? The only reason I fear so much about these energy lows is because I had to force myself to run this morning and that was a first. I just do not want to get discouraged or unmotivated.

On a lighter note today was weigh ins and I lost 2 pounds this week so I am still happily moving in the right direction.

    I use apples for my energy. Hang in there. You'll get through this and feel so much better!

    With any withdrawal, it will get better. Focus on the goals and the success you've had. Maybe you can try an alternative drink, like coconut water, it has lots of potassium which can help.

    Just gotta suffer through it. If you're on day 4 you should be nearing the end. I always told myself caffeine is a drug. I am detoxing like any other addict does. If my body is this addicted to something then all the more reason to let it go.
