I'm off Coffee.That's right. I'm off. I have never had an attempt to go off caffeine be so paiinful before. What is prompting it? Well, I am giving it up for personal reasons, but I am definately realizing the grip it had on me. I had a headache for 4 daysof the last week. I have been yawning uncontrollably throughout my work day. Making Sentances Sucks. And then there are my runs. Even my runs are feeling it. My energy level is stabilizing, but I know my energy has been low for the last week.
I have been going a tad overboard on coffee for along while. two Venti sized strong coffees before even showing up for work, then a few more to get me through the day. I rely on it to get myself amped up for the presentations I do for classes. I teach drug and alcohol awareness. People get the caffinated me. Well the last week they have suffered through the Ferris Bueller teacher me "Bueller....Bueller."
I am resetting my body. I am hoping to make it through the next while without. My brain is not pounding anymore and I feel much much less anxious about things.
Runs, I am hoping will be improved with time off the caffeine. Morning runs will be more difficult, but I will make it work for now. Anyone else drink too much of a great thing?
