I should have waited until Wednesday, and this post would have had the much snappier title – 100 Days Without Caffeine – but I couldn’t wait!
I have been without caffeine for 97 days – and counting!
I stopped drinking soda on September 29 – see The 929 Project and my Health Optimization Plan for more information about what I am and what I am not eating- and I haven’t had one since. The only thing I’ve had, besides water, was a thimble full of grape juice for communion. Other that that, it’s been H2O all the way. And I feel great!
I don’t like talking about the past, especially now that I’m focusing so much on my future, but I will say that there was a time, not long ago, when I could drink a liter or two of Diet Mountain Dew – a day. Ugh. Now, I’m soda-free and caffeine free.
It took, maybe three or four days, to get rid of the craving for soda. Caffeine withdrawal headaches are painful! But now that I’ve gotten rid of the soda, I’m saving money at the grocery store, I feel much better, and I’m drinking lots of beneficial water.
Oh, and when I wake up, my brain doesn’t feel “cloudy” either. In the past, I didn’t “wake up” until after a couple of cans of the Dew. Now, I wash my face, brush my teeth, and drink a big, cold glass of water – and I’m wide awake. Amazing.
Weigh in in the morning!!!
