Old Habits Die Hard

I’ve cut out most caffeine for the last two weeks, and have had I think two cups of coffee in that time. I was starting to feel pretty rough, so I started having one cup of tea in the mornings. I still end up feeling really rough around 3pm each day, but I’m sure that won’t last a whole lot longer. I’m really glad it’s Friday. I just wish I could be outside today seeing as it’s going to be sunny and 60 degrees.

A Library

I’m starting a spreadsheet to keep track of all of my books, records, and DVDs (as well as digital videos). I have a ton of books, and sometimes staring at the shelves can be overwhelming, so it will be nice to be able to refer back to a document with everything listed in whatever order I want.

On the caffeine front, I had half a cup of tea this morning. I’m doing fine, but a little disappointed I drank that. I didn’t really need it. Also, just so no one thinks I’ve turned into some crazy Mormon teetotaler, I’m just doing this for two weeks. Then I’ll probably go back to having a cup of coffee a day, but not the pot a day I was drinking.

More of the Same Again

The caffeine withdrawal symptoms have gone down a lot today. I haven’t felt as exhausted and haven’t had a headache either.

I’m excited for this long weekend coming up. I’m hoping to make a few copies of Plone Taps and to get a few small projects done around the apartment. I’ll probably eat at Handi or Chicora Alley for dinner this weekend.

Now With Less Caffeine!

Yesterday was my first day without caffeine in a while. I bought some decaf coffee over the weekend in anticipation of this two-week attempt at surviving without any caffeine. The decaf coffee helped a little because I was able to enjoy my routine.  Since about 9:00 yesterday morning I felt like I have the beginnings of a cold. I have a slight headache. Even though we went to sleep a little early, I feel like I got a terrible night of sleep. I’m tired and my mental focus is not very sharp. Lately I’ve been drinking way too much coffee a day, and I know my sleep is probably suffering because of it. Hopefully this two weeks will help.

If not, well then my first cup back will be glorious.

Caffeine Free Monday

Well it’s the first monday of 2010, and I haven’t had any caffeine. I am going caffeine free for the next two weeks. This should be interesting, as I’ve basically been drinking coffee since I was, what, 10?
