#decaffeiNATed Day 4 – a day of hope and cravings

Yesterday evening, thanks to a very generous donor, I got the news that not only will I do be doing the initial 7 days of #decaffeiNATed but I will in fact being doing 9 days at the moment. This in itself has bolstered my resolve, even when staring down my favourite chocolate in the supermarketContinue reading “#decaffeiNATed Day 4 – a day of hope and cravings”

#decaffeiNATed day 3 – remind me again why I did this

Today I was busy at work and that kept me going, didn’t think about caffeine (or chocolate), but I got home and wanted the biggest cup of Earl Grey you can imagine. But I can’t have it. I’m being good. I’m not entirely sure that opening some cider counts as being really good, but IContinue reading “#decaffeiNATed day 3 – remind me again why I did this”

#decaffeiNATed headaches and cravings – day 2

The headache from yesterday still hasn’t dissipated completely. The cravings are possibly worse today. Especially for the chocolate and a cup of Earl Grey.

I’ve had one donation so far and that the first week is going ahead, but to be honest I’d like a┬álot more donations because a) I want to raise as much money as possible for Sanctuary for Kids and b) it wouldContinue reading “10 days until #decaffeiNATed”

75 days until decaffeiNATED – Today I looked at my caffeine intake

There were a few things I realised today. I can’t back out on this. It’s up on the Sanctuary for Kids community page. My caffeine intake is currently between 300mg and 450mg of caffeine a day. The upper moderate intake for adults is 300mg. Unsurprisingly I’m back to the stage I was before I gaveContinue reading “75 days until decaffeiNATED – Today I looked at my caffeine intake”
