So I'm definitely addicted to caffeine again. I worked so hard to give it up last year but somehow it crept back in to my life. If only coffee and coffee-flavored specialty drinks weren't so delicious. Ugh. Anyway, for the month of July I kind of went hog wild over caffeine. Really threw all that "I don't need caffeine to function" business right out the window. I blame it on the new Intelligentsia right down the street from work, and on the newly discovered (by me) iced mocha. It's like mocha, but iced! So if you're hot and still want coffee, you just put it over ice, and it's so cold and deliciously refreshing.
Ahem, like I was saying, I'm addicted to caffeine and that's BAD. I have to keep reminding myself about that last part. But it is bad, at least for me, and I really hate the automatic headaches that come with caffeine withdrawal. You guys I have been drinking decaf all summer and am still clutching my head in agony by about 1pm if I've not had my caffeinated beverage yet. I know that decaf can still have plenty of caffeine in it but seriously! One decaf drink a day for a few days and I'm totally hooked again, wtf. So yeah, totally addicted. Sigh. The boy is super upset at me for just throwing that no caffeine thing out the window. He suggested I give it up again and then blog about it to keep myself accountable. So, because I have absolutely no willpower (seriously, none. I'm in shape because I'm determined, which is how I can drag myself out to run 4 mornings a week, but I have no willpower. I intend to work on that...eventually. Maybe when sugar stops being so delicious) I'm going to hope the guilt keeps me away from caffeine. It's either going to be that or the constant (requested by me) chastizing from D.
