Caffeine Free

Just under eighteen months ago, I stopped drinking sodas and switched to drinking just tea. I also tried to drink more water.

Over the last couple of months, I've been weaning myself slowly off the caffeine, hopefully for a healthier, cleaner lifestyle. For the last week, I've had no drinks with caffeine in them. During this last week, I've been over-tired, getting really bad headaches and suffering from lack of focus. I understand this is par for the course. I can now better empathize with all those mothers-to-be that give up the pleasures of coffee and tea while they are pregnant and breast feeding.

There's still a little bit of caffeine in the chocolate I eat (can't give that up), but I've cut that way down too.

To help compensate for all of this, I've been taking a multi-vitamin call Centrium (the silver edition). I particularly like that the vitamin B12 dosage is 417% of your daily requirement.

It's still earlier days, but after a week, with the headaches now eventually gone, I'm sleeping better and have a bigger appetite.

Now I just need to work on getting more exercise. Of course a 2-3K caloric intake and a lazy day yesterday didn't help at all with this goal. Still there is always tomorrow, um today.
