I've made the decision to give up my weekday morning coffee. Coffee is not a life-long habit with me, which is strange considering I was born and reared in Washington. I just never got into the habit until I started living with Bick. TheExBubba drank the requisite truckdriver's amount of coffee, but since he wasn't home daily, I never got into the routine of starting the day with a cuppa joe. I did, however, adopt Bick's couple of cups each and every morning habit.
Now drinking coffee itself isn't necessarily a bad habit. But I don't really drink coffee, I drink coffee punch - a concoction of real cream and splenda, which after drinking a couple of mugs full adds a couple of hundred calories to my daily total. And while I do not count calories per se, calories do count and if I can take-it-or-leave-it, it makes more sense to just leave it. I'd rather spend those calories in some other way. Or right now, I'd prefer to try to build up a small, but steady daily deficit. Weight loss is stalled, and while I am unwilling to do a restrictive "diet" along with heavy duty exercise, I am looking for a balance of daily pleasurable exercise and daily reasonable food intake. It just makes sense for me to make this adjustment.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Find your perfect balance.
