So, this week is a bit different for me. It's also a rough one in different ways, because I have a habit of doing stupid stuff to myself.
Here are some things I started this week, cold turkey:
- Fruitarian diet for 7 days (to keep my cravings for other things I'm cutting out at bay)
I have my reasonings for doing these. Lets be honest:
I did not want to quit vaping
I am doing so as I do not feel like it is a healthy habit for me/my body.
But I definitely can't stop thinking about it lol. More so at night, that is when I want it the most, when the kids go to bed.
As far as the caffeine? Well, last summer/fall, I was still in my work commute via bicycle (I do it when weather is nice). My cycling, depending on which route I want to take/how long I want to be out before and after work, is about 13-20 miles each way. Some routes are better than others, and safer too! So that hence why I would take the longer route!
Anywho I am rambling. The no caffeine part, I have horrible issues sleeping, and have for most of my life. I had cut out caffeine during bicycle commuting and it felt great. I still couldnt sleep lmao, but it felt great. Idk if it was having that pattern down, and the foods I was eating, but basically I felt zero want and dependency on the coffee/caffeine. I miss that hard natural energy I had from what I ate, and the habits I was doing. I feel like your body gets lax and just wants that caffeine to do the work lmao.
And it was hard the first time at first, as I really love coffee!
So there is all that, and to top it off lack of sleep always, this has been tough. My daughter woke up at 4:30AM and did not go back to sleep either, so that was just icing on the cake. lol.
One of those days, one of those weeks!
