This morning I woke up with a brutal headache (and my upstairs neighbor sauntering around his/her apartment at 8am in heels, which totally makes sense for 8am on a Saturday, right? I clean my place at 8am on Saturdays in heels too…. don’t you?). Of course, I jumped to the most rational thought possible: “Is my brain bleeding?” As you can see, I like to keep things rational, and not jump to the worst possible conclusions 😉
Turns out I managed to forget to drink any coffee for 2 days! What is wrong with me? How could I forget to drink that sweet nectar of life for two whole days? I have no idea. But after I ate a bagel to calm the barfy feeling I felt from waking up starving due to not having an ADR lunch* yesterday, I was off to Starbucks. It only took about two sips for my headache to begin to subside. Addiction much?
I think I am never going to give up coffee, and I am just going to give up trying. Technically, coffee isn’t all that bad for you anyway. It’s the sugar and cream that are bad (and particularly the white mocha syrup that I like in my iced coffee.. which is getting cut from my daily intake here real soon). At a women’s event at work last week we had a session with this meditation/relaxation/nutritionist lady and she said two things which made her my favorite nutritionist ever:
1) coffee in the morning is ok (and coffee is actually good for you, hellooo antioxidants!), just drink a full glass of water first; AND
2) a glass of red wine in the evenings is totally good for you.
Ooooo, actually it was three things:
3) chocolate, in moderation, is good for you.
Three things that I love, love, love have some positive health benefits! Woohoo! I usually am not a fan of nutritionist people, because I hate when they tell me things I don’t want to hear (ie stop eating so much sugar and carbs blah blah blah).
I don’t really have a point to this post besides…. I heart coffee ❤
*ADR LUNCH- when I eat lunch at work, I tend to eat a HUGE lunch (sandwich, salad, fruit, chips, and a big cookie at a minimum). Yesterday I didn’t work, and I only had a PB&J for lunch. Confused my ADR expanded belly big time.
