My goal recently was to give up one thing until I kicked it completely and then move on to the next thing. I started small by getting rid of my sweet-n-low in my coffee. I did that for one week and it was no big deal AT ALL.
The following week I moved on to bigger pastures. I decided to quit coffee...
chirp. chirp. chirp.
Yes, you heard me correctly. I decided to try to quit coffee 3 weeks ago today. On the 11th day, which was a Friday, I had to be at work extra early and I had a long night before. I decided to treat myself to Starbucks on that Friday morning. I doubt I even had half of my Soy Mocha No whip before I chunked it. I haven't had any coffee since. More importantly, I haven't really wanted it either.
I have replaced my morning and afternoon coffee kick with a healthier green tea and I haven't looked back. In addition to my green tea, I have been enjoying either freshed squeezed fruit juice or a fresh fruit smoothie every single morning (all organic)...and I am so happy I made this switch from coffee.
People who know me know that I don't like juice. I have always been anti-juice if it's pre-packaged from the store. I'm not a fan of all the sugars, flavoring, and food dyes (to name a few reasons) in juice and just prefer fresh organic juice. My go-to fruit juices so far are straight organic orange juice -YUM to the max - or an organic apples and ginger juice. There are some other fresh juice recipes I am looking at to try but I'll let you know when that time comes.
|Isn't Sparky a great hand model?|
|I'm going to whiz the juice! - name that movie...|
|Wonderful tart granny smith juice with a kick of ginger.|
|Sometimes I'll add in some strawberries or mix the oranges and apples together. They are all super yummy. Also, you can see the appx size of ginger cut in this photo.|
I guess since I've kicked coffee I need to find the next thing to kick. I've actually already started kicking something else and I'll fill you in once I've done more research on it.
Keep on Keepin on.
