I'm not a "chug-caffeine-all-day" kind of gal (after all, if I drink caffeine after noon, I'm up all night), but I generally drink a go cup of coffee every morning. It has become quite the routine, and it offers a nice little jump-start to my morning and, therefore, my entire day.
|This is all I want right now.|
Well, while I get this whole heart issue under control, I'm avoiding caffeine. I had a cup of coffee yesterday for the first time since Friday, but I decided that I'd better just go completely without until I glue on my Holter monitor on Friday and have my echocardiogram next Wednesday -- and then get the go-ahead from the cardiologist.
(I'm also avoiding alcohol, but that's not as big a deal since I was maybe drinking once a week anyway, and even then it was a glass of wine or two. I can live without that.)
So, I write this at 6:30 a.m. after a tough workout and before a long day of work, already tired and wanting to go back to bed.
I may just go to Caribou and grab a cup of decaf. The placebo effect is a real thing, right? :)
Wish. me. luck.
