I had my first sip of coffee last October. I remember the intense need for energy one afternoon at work. I hated coffee though & swore I’d never drink it. Didn’t want to get addicted. But in that moment I decided one cup won’t hurt. I need this. Something magical happened that afternoon. I never felt more alive! 🤸🏻♀️⚡️ bam. 💥 POW. My brain worked in triple time. I typed like a freaking machine gun, and pumped out a major project faster than I ever had. Maybe did a few cartwheels down the hall. Life changing. Forrreallz.
The next day I had to have more, life just wasn’t as electric without it. Still swore I would NOT get addicted. There I was just sipping one more cup.
It’s been a year now. And guess what?! That one cup, turned into at least 365. It was life changing indeed.
Not only did I have a go-to for that extra oomph, but aww it just tastes sooo good!! Amiright?!! •
Here’s what happened though: my body started to expect it, then ended up actually needing it in order to function. 😵 so here I was a year later. The very thing I said I wouldn’t let happen, happened. I noticed some other things over the course of this year. ✔️I was easily agitated
✔️my muscles tensed up
✔️stress became more intense than ever — not just mentally, but physically too. You see, when we drink caffeine, our body is borrowing energy and has to work harder to function. It actually tries to produce energy to give back to what was borrowed and then what it produces naturally. Ouchhh 🤕
✔️I had restless sleep and even went nights not sleeping at all. Which was GREAT for trying to end my caffeine cycle. 😏I needed more the next day.
This October I decided I needed to change. I decided to give up coffee for a month. Just to see if that helped. RELAX. But how did you do it?! Well I certainly didn’t load my body up with sugar. We all know that ends well. 🙄
To help with my detox, I put some @arbonne
energy fizz in water twice a day. The ingredients are B vitamins & green tea extract. Both high in antioxidants. I was super skeptical this could possibly replace the effects of coffee but WOW it’s been incredible!! I’m energized, yet relaxed, & sleep like a little babe. 😇
