So today marks day 4 of no coffee, can you say withdrawals?? I decided on the 1st of May I was quitting because I was dependent on it WAY too much and it was making me fat. After seeing how many calories my little cup of happiness was bringing in and almost dieing of shock I knew what I had to do. Not to mention my little addiction got expensive. I tallied up how much I was spending, and going to Starbucks approx 4 days a week ran me over $100 a month! WOW! (and that's not including gas). That is a lot of money I could be saving or spending on other frivolous things. That's not including the coffee I make at home either. I knew it was getting crazy when I was making 45min round-trips just for Starbucks. Now, this being said.... I will miss my Venti Java Chip with extra chip and extra shots of coffee... oh and no whip (I'm healthy because I get no whip right?!)
Your probably asking yourself, "why is she quitting cold turkey? She could just make it at home and it would be less calories AND be cheaper".. Well, I have tried this before and it's just not the same. I always end up at Starbucks like a child sneaking a cookie. So it's all or nothing for this gal.
Also, I will always remember the trips my friends made for me just so I could get my "fix". I love you Val and Debbie. Your sacrifices never went unnoticed.
So I guess this is my goodbye blog to coffee for now... at least until I can get that extra ring of fat that appeared around my waist to go away thanks to the extra chip I insist on ordering every time... or I become rich...
Your forever in my heart Java Chip!
I can do this right?
