Day 5 Of My Cleanse

Well, as it turns out coffee is the hardest thing. I did anticipate it being hard, but it ends up to be really challenging when I am making coffee for my husband (yes, I am a sweet wife) and it smells so good. Instead I opt for green tea, which has some caffine in it so the coffee withdrawl headache has not really set in. What this is helping with is getting me to eat a real breakfast, before I would just have a cup of coffee which would fill me up, now I need to have something a little heartier, so I guess that is a good thing. Another aspect that has been challenging is the clutter clean out, I know it needs to be done but I just haven’t done it. I am not always thinking of it and over the last few days we have had a bunch of snow days and our schedules have been all turned around. In any event, as I mentioned in my last post, this is really about self control and taking out things that are not good for me. Which is why I am contemplating bringing coffee back. The last two days I have taken the bus into work and stopped at Starbucks. Yesterday was a decaf latte, today was a Vanilla Rooibos Tea Latte – both very good, both without sugar or sweetner. The question is, which is better for me, a cup of coffee at home or stopping and spending money for a warm treat?  In the long run, its probably better just to have the coffee at home. I am considering bringing the coffee back on Monday, after one whole week without it. The idea for the cleanse was mainly self control, but also I was hoping to feel better too, possibly lose some weight, etc. For the most part I feel the same, I have lost maybe 1 pound, but I am proud of myself for resisting the urge to drink or eat sweets. Even with my husband’s birthday and all the snow days, lots of time on our hands and not one treat or indulgence. That’s pretty good self control. For next week and moving forward I am going to try my best to incorporate the clean out of the clutter and if I decide to bring coffee back, I will limit it to one cup a day and possibly take something else out, maybe white flour or carbs after noon. We will see how it goes. Until Next Time – thanks for reading, kg
