Good by espresso

I have not had my morning espresso for two weeks tomorrow.

I was not sure I would survive with out it but I am slowly getting used to not having it.

That said I do miss it and have not put the espresso machine completely away, keeping a small hope that someday I will be able to have it again.

Have a good day.

Are you giving it up for any particular reason?

Good luck with your efforts!

@veganostomy 

The nutritionist recommended quitting espresso at least for now.

I sort of wanted to stop drinking it any way so I figured I would.

BUT I gave in and went back to one a day and it does not appear to have any adverse effects.

I put a lot of effort to ensure I am getting my required hydration and nutrition daily so I think it will be ok.  

Maybe once I am working out regularly again and my energy level picks up a bit I will try to give it up once and for all.

I took a look at the Cronometer app you mentioned and downloaded it.

I really like it because I tend to forget how much water I have drank in a day so the app helps me keep on top of that and also the various nutrients.

Thank you for that app recommendation.

I have always been a coffee drinker.  Black, no sugar.  
I love a Cappuccino now and then.

I've never really been a water fan, though if i'm hot i can sip it.

I drink fizzy pop (zero sugar) and fruit juices sometimes.

 

I can't stand TEA, it revolts me.  Strangely when i was suffering with morning sickness during all of my pregnancies i could not stand Coffee it made me sick, yet i could drink Tea.  Thats the only time i could drink it though!
And i had sickness all the way through each of my pregnancies.  

Coffee is my vice, I can't function without it first thing in the morning ☕️

I was good with keeping my coffee consumption to a minimum and having the odd coffee once or twice a week. Lately however I’ve been averaging 2-4 a day mostly visiting my buddy or his mom. Despite this I do drink an exorbitant amount of water so at least I’m well hydrated lol

I love tea, but Earl Grey repulses me.

Have you tried herbal teas, in particular, the more fruity kind? They can taste more like juice than tea, and may be a good alternative to traditional tea👌
