Well, it’s been tougher this time around, but my body has been cleansed of caffeine. Much to my delight, I have been able to transition to drinking just water and milk remarkably well. I wish I could say that I am feeling great, but I can’t. I seem to have picked up a bug of some sorts and I haven’t been feeling well. Perhaps my body was so out of whack for a while so that left me susceptible to something.
My husband is also doing fine with no caffeine as well. He was fine after one day. When scientists talk about genes playing a factor in addiction, I think they have something there.
This whole thing will save us money, no doubt. I think one of the nicest things about it was having a talk with our son today. He’s observant and watches what we do. He brought up the fact that there is no longer any soft drinks in our house and I was able to explain how important water is. He was able to stump my knowledge of things quite a few times, but that’s quite alright. After our talk, he grabbed a water from the fridge and handed it to me. Then he grabbed one for himself. He said he wanted us to be healthy. I’ll drink water to that!
It’s great that all of us are on board with no caffeine. We’re also committed to living a healthier life overall. That’s another reason why our grocery price book is going to be such a great tool. It can easily be modified to include key nutritional information and become an aid to menu planning (which is in the works). Each of us has a need with our diets now and I think that spreadsheet will help us meet them.
