Live your Best Life - Week 1

>> Saturday, January 12, 2008

Yours truly has successfully just completed day #7 with NO CAFFEINE! You heard it right, I am finally kicking my caffeine habit! I was never a huge caffeine addict - I've never been a coffee drinker and although I love tea I've only ever drank herbal non-caffeinated tea. But I do have a bit of a thing for soda (in particular good 'ole Diet Pepsi), and it had gotten to the point where I was drinking about 4 a day. Now some people may say that four a day is nothing, but for someone who once suffered from pretty bad stomach problems, for me four is four too many and it was about time to give myself a kick in the pants and stop, so day number 7 is almost over and I haven't had a drop of anything with caffeine in it. For now I have switched over to caffeine-free Diet Pepsi and then once I get used to that I'll just stop drinking that as well. I found that after around day 4 or 5 I wasn't really craving it anymore and actually preferred water to anything else so that's kinda cool. I did have major headaches days 2-4 but I knew it would be worth it to stick with it!

All this is a part of a decision I made at the beginning of this year. I decided that this year I would live my best life and become the best possible version of myself. This is a bit of an ode to Oprah (I am a big fan of Oprah) - she's always saying on her show how it is every person's responsibility to live their best life and that no one is ever going to change you - only you can change yourself and make that decision for your life. She's right and I know there are changes I have wanted to make in my life for awhile now and it's about time I make them happen!

So first on the list was to become the healthiest I've ever been. I figured the new no caffeine rule would be a good place to start as that little addiction was bothering me quite a bit. As I continue that I'm also going to go ahead and move to the next thing on my "let's get healthy!" list - exercise. It starts tomorrow! I'm gonna' give yoga another try as it's easy to do during the winter in the house and it also has the meditative aspect of it which interests me. I'm going to promise myself that I will exercise at least four times a week for at least half an hour, then I'll move up from there.

I'll keep posting on my progress as getting the word out on what I'm doing will help keep my from slacking off. Here's to living your best life!
