9 days

without coffee. I went through the withdrawals, which thankfully did not last long, and I have been drinking hot cocoa in the mornings. Absolutely no coffee has crossed my lips. Until today. I was cleaning out my fridge and saw I still had this:

I decided to take a sip to see what would happen. My thoughts were that tea and hot chocolate have caffeine and they don't bother me, maybe I'm over it. I'm not. I just took one sip and I could feel that feeling starting to come on. That sucks. I think I was hoping that this would pass, but it looks like that is not going to happen. I'm not 100% positive it is caffeine, but coffee has 95 mg, green tea (which I drink fine) has 25 mg, and hot cocoa has 5 mg. So I think it is the amount. Also, I drink the tea towards the end of the day, not in the morning on an empty stomach. That may make a difference. Of course, I just drank the peppermint after breakfast and it happened. Ahhhh, screw it..... I just need to stay away from coffee. Fine. Okay. I accept it. I don't like it, but I accept it. Ugh...... I really, really hate the f*cking being an adult thing...... it freaking sucks so much......

In other news, my return to Crossfit has been successful and relatively pain free. I went on Saturday and did the WOD. Sunday I went to the mobility clinic. Monday I did nothing. Yesterday, Tuesday, I went to the 8 am and did the WOD. So proud of myself for not going crazy, taking it easy on the weights, and not pushing myself too hard. I'm sore today and feeling good.

I am going to start running. I know I've said that before and I haven't followed through, but this time I mean it. I'm going to start running tomorrow morning. I'm going to do couch to 5k. I want to start tomorrow so that my feel get used to the running before school starts. I'm also going to visit Sports Authority today and see what shoes I can buy just for running. Want to see what they have on last minute sale.

Okay, I'm done for now. I think I'm recovered from the coffee incident so I'm going to lay down for a few minutes and regroup. I need to do something today, I can't just sit on my butt all day.
