I’m tired. This will be short and sweet.
Today was hard. I did not drink ANY coffee today, because I am sick of drinking bad coffee (I will visit you, Andy, for that amazing soy latte…) but for today I just wanted something that didn’t taste like poison – so I drank chai. my body was punishing me for the lower caffeine level ALL DAY. I might just stay coffee free too. I cannot believe I’m saying that. I am devoted to coffee. yikes.
Oh yeah – There’s another healthy eating challenge I’ve taken on. I’ve switched from sugar to stevia (plant derived, totally safe) … which must be an acquired taste, because I currently find it quite yucky – especially in my coffee. But it has zero effect on my blood sugar levels which I’ve been trying to keep in homeostasis. 😉 hmm.
So… no coffee. stayed up late (visiting with wonderful friends made it worth it), woke up early to go to a homeschooling book fair all day, and then went bowling with teenagers tonight. I munched on carrots and almonds all day while I watched others eating pizza. Pizza was everywhere I tell you. evil.
For the one hour I was home today I ate diner with my family. We had sloppy joe’s (mine without a bun – so yea, a pile of beef on a plate) sweet potato fries, and salads.
Today I did not feel amazing. I felt pooped.
What I learned today: Diet is not everything. Sleep is priceless.
