I'm down .2 pound on my weigh-in today.

I'm trying something else to free me:-) Here's the deal--the no caffeine thing has really been fairly easy. Take yesterday--I had no interest in having regular coffee after having my token decaf + SoDelicious Coconut Creamer first thing. But . . . as the day wore on I was craving chocolate like crazy. I don't keep ANY in the house. No chocolate chips for baking. Nothing.

I wish that Dove would make the individual "Promises" in a mint dark chocolate version, but they don't. My fave of that combo is Green & Black's Mint Chocolate bar--I end up eating the whole thing in a day. They don't make individual drops of chocolate. I don't like Hershey's. It's just as well--I made it without going to drastic means to have SOME chocolate. The craving is gone.

So back to my new thing. I'm going to try being a recreational caffeine user. I've never been a "recreational" user of anything. When I was drinking--I drank regularly. Day in, day out. It "helped" (haha) that practically everyone around me was drinking in massive and frequent amounts like I was. Eventually that all came to a screeching halt and I successfully relegated it to weekends. Now I'd have to be forced at gunpoint to drink anywhere near that much on a daily basis.

I'm not an alcoholic--I've never had a compulsion to drink. Social pressure yes--back in the day. But at some point it becomes a choice and not pressure. I feel lucky because I have friends for whom alcohol is a total scourge on the entire family. One kid has multiple failed marriages and DWIs. However they're all pretty high-functioning alcoholics. Out of four kids only one can take it or leave it. And now one kid is dead--not necessarily from alcohol.

It's inconclusive whether it had any bearing on her death because her husband refused to have her body autopsied. One kid drinks from very near wake-up to bedtime (I know this because she's an ex-friend) and is extremely high-functioning and very driven and "successful." She's my age and she simply has no personality anymore--alcohol is her personality. I have to think she lives life on extreme autopilot.

So back to my plan, recreational caffeine use. The plan is to have one cup of outside-the-house coffee on Saturdays--already did it. (You can't talk me down from the ledge--I already jumped--haha!) If I get up tomorrow and am back on the NEED to have that coffee. I'll rethink this.

On another maybe more scintillating subject. I had a series of dreams last night that were interesting. In one there were people on really long bungee cords suspended from planes or helicopters. The aircraft were above the clouds so the bungee people were going up and down from way up there all the way to their toes touching the ground. There were about four or five of them.

Then another one about an old HS friend who normally has all gray hair, but he looked like he'd dipped only the top of his head in a pool of crude oil or something. Half nice gray color and half all black on top--I pretended like it was great--haha! The interesting thing was the venue--it was like the house where my paternal grandparents lived had grown to about ten times its size and that's where we unexpectedly met up. It was a really cool place--I loved that house and I don't even know if it's still standing.

In the next one I went to some restaurant with my mother. It was a regular lunch in a sort of fancy place--very crowded. She recognized a man who was sitting down with his family, but he sort of acted like she wasn't there. She moved on and didn't think anything of it. They happened to be sitting at a table behind us. There was an empty chair next to me. (We were all seated next to a wall.) Before our food arrived, this man all of a sudden got up and sat down next to me and started chatting with my mom. That was it.

So that's my dream life OFF of caffeine--I have a tendency to have sort vivid but vague dreams that usually don't amount to anything but a couple of remembered images. For instance I had a dream awhile ago where I was taking care of someone's adult bear. I was walking it around the street like a dog. It was even acting like a dog--very obedient.

I think what the interpretation of all this is, "Girl you better get your wt trng done or there's going to be lots and lots of hell to pay!"

So that's it for my Saturday saga--have a lovely one!

I could drink tea & cola all day long, but if I have more than one cup of coffee I'm bouncing off the walls. Weird because tea and cola have caffeine.

If beer and wine were very low cal I'd drink a lot more of it. It's totally a calorie issue for me. I did consume a LOT of beer when we lived in Uganda though.

Have a great weekend!

LOL..Love the dream analysis ;) I think that I have shared my most craziest dreams with you girls her but my recurring ones of falling off a cliff,rollerblading in the hub of Interstates/ Freeways without being able to exit are super freaky.. As far as the caffeine goes, just take it one day at a time..Had it not been for my incident, I would have NEVER given up on it.. Congrats on your loss Biscotti :)

Hello again! The tomato spreads I buy...I don't do much cooking anymore bc i'd rather be outside and I feel my time is always split, not shared between activities. anyways, I forget the brand, but it's HEALTHY, low calorie, and they actually taste good. I will get back to you on the name...


greengirl on 08/19/2012:
Hi Biscotti, good for you on cutting back on the caffeine. I've been drinking de-caf tea and coffee for a while now and it has helped me get off to sleep at night. I still wake after a few hours but I think that as I get older I just need less sleep. Sometimes though I can't keep my eyes open until I get into bed when I'm suddenly wide awake!! Your dreams sound interesting! Someone told me once tat every face you see in a dream is one you have seen in real life, even if you dont remember it consciously ! Weird! Have a great week :-)


Maria7 on 08/19/2012:
Wow....I ENJOYED reading about your dream-cations. How entertaining! :-D Congrats on how well you are doing, too, btw. :-)

I had the world's smallest cup of regular coffee this morning. That's that--I hope. I did get in an allotment of caffeine/theobromine with a slice of chocolate cake. I had it rather late and so it completely screwed with my sleep. One of those things--just have to move forward. I did enjoy the cake.

I did buy one more container of SoDelicious Coconut Creamer--so I'm in for one cup of decaf first thing for a week or so.

Did you savor every sip of that coffee? Does the coconut creamer taste like coconut? If so, that would be good in hot chocolate too.

I loved the forumula you have for me. Ah...peace of mind is right!

hi! I've been drinking decaf coffee often too. it's great bc it's low calorie, fills you, and tastes the same (in my opinion!). also, you don't get the caffeine high or jitters...and regular coffee does it to me. those creamers are addictive, but if you only use one, i don't see a problem.

I'm almost to the end of the coffee. Today my allotment of reg was a little less than a third of a cup--estimating--with about a half-teaspoon of sugar. Tomorrow's will be a little less than a quarter-cup (no sugar) and then that's it. All gone.

No headache so far. I feel very confident about it this time around. I've got enough of the coconut creamer for another cup of decaf. I don't know if I'll get one more container and just have decaf for another few days or not--we'll see about that.

Didn't get my wt trng done yesterday.

So glad you're not having headaches. Mine were brutal this time around. You're probably getting in more water than me, which helps too. I think I was pretty dehydrated and didn't address it soon enough. I'm still lacking in the water dept., but trying to step it up. Have a good one.

I figure it'll take 'til next week sometime to get the caffeine out of my system. Yesterday went as planned. No headaches so far--probably a function of two things--post-menopause I rarely if ever get a headache, and I don't drink all that much caffeine to begin with.

We've been having an unusual dry heat (100sF for highs) for the last several days. I think I'd rather have the humid heat. It's much too oven-like for me.

liza36 on 08/14/2012:
I have the humid heat and sometimes wish for the dry.

Thank you SO much for reminding myself that I should devote kindness and generosity to me, and of course ditch the guy who is draining me. I really needed to hear that, so that you!


liza36 on 08/14/2012:
By the way, good for you for kicking the caffeine thing again. You and me both seem to go in these cycles of kicking it every now and then. I'm 3 weeks into eliminating my caffeine, and the first week I had terrible headaches. Glad you aren't experiencing any of that. I do crave a diet coke probably every day, and I'm hoping the craving at least will subside soon. Good luck this time around!


hollybelle on 08/14/2012:
On giving up caffine - I cut it out gradually (and then put it back in gradually!!!LOL) but I found that drinkinig LOTS of water helped. You may already do this and that's why no headache. I love my (limited amounts) caffine, though! Only one big mug of coffee these days - no sodas and no caffinated tea.


supercheese on 08/14/2012:
Does eating dark chocolate help? I heard that it can.....but...maybe that was just me overhearing and hoping that eating chocolate is another way to stay healthy!


V on 08/14/2012:
Hello there! I hope it cools down for all of us, this is a bit much for me as well :( I am sure you crushed your Circuit Training today :)


Umpqua on 08/15/2012:
My parents always maintain that the dry heat is so much better than humidity (they're in Oregon). When it gets above 100 I don't think that holds true - I'll take the humidity! Good job slowly eliminating the caffeine!

I'm giving the no-caffeine/no coffee thing a go. Again. Ho-hum. I'd like for it to last more than a month or a week. I'd like to get it going and go to the very end of October--completely random date. The gradual cutting back and then out has begun today.

I had been pretty used to at-home decaf for quite awhile there, then bad habits took over. I eventually attached myself to some outside the house, great/but fairly cheap CoFfEeeeeeeee with quite a bit of H&H and a little milk :-) It's the smallest of three sizes, and I always wanted the medium, but held myself back--haha!

Byebye to that--hello to my old standby Keurig K-cups--I'm on my second machine and I wish I'd just never sprung for the second one--live and learn. First cup of the day is decaf with SoDelicious Coconut Creamer, then the second cup for these next few days will be reg (black) with a little sugar, pouring out a little each day before adding the sugar until I'm down to about a quarter-cup of coffee. I'm not one to waste coffee like that, but for this it must be done. I also don't add sugar to coffee, but I can't drink plain black coffee even after all these years. After that I'll drink the decaf 'til the creamer is gone--I use a lot so it probably won't last more than 5 or 6 days.

I'm not doing it for any specific reason--sleep hasn't been godawful of late. It seems like a good time to try it again. Should I follow through like I'd like to, I'm sure it will boost my sleep hours somewhat over the long run. Also, dependence on something I know I can do without is worth trying to do without. Coffee isn't evil. It just seems like a good time to give this a shot!

I hope to get my wt trng in tomorrow and get that back on track.

Toldja it was boring:-)

I'm still basking in my wt trng accomplishment. It's only two workouts, but when I realize how lucky I am to get back to it, I remain ecstatic--oooh!

Not much on the Olympics yesterday for me. For anyone reading this, there's Women's Boxing on the NBC Sports Network after noon (CST) today. Also if you go to the NBC Olympics page there are tons of videos of (possibly) everything that's already taken place. If you've never seen the Trampoline event and it intrigues you (like it does me) there are a number of videos for it there. It's over. Unless they have Synchronized Trampoline or something crazy. You don't have to sign up to watch them.

I got my wt trng done. I increased reps on a few moves. I'll keep the dumbbell weight at 8# for one more session. Feeling good--I take it in small bites, and I take my time. Did I say it feels good--to get it done, to have done it and know that I can (fairly) easily plan to do the next one:-)

The Women's Boxing Medal Round is tomorrow and there are two USA boxers in it--woo-hoo! If you get MSNBC or CNBC, it's on in the afternoon I believe. Or if you go to the website for NBC's Olympic coverage you may be able to (with a login from your TV provider) get to watch it online. I don't know if NBC's nighttiime (nearly all tape-delayed) coverage will include it. Jenn Suhr (USA) won the gold medal for Pole Vaulting yesterday. I got to watch the Gymnastic Trampoline over the weekend, and there simply isn't room for error with that. They bounce up so ridiculously high. One person fell off but wasn't injured and got back on.

For my activity:
Sat: Walk 115 min
Sun: Walk 45 min

I so enjoyed the pairs Synchronized Swimming (SS) yesterday. Same with Women's Olympic Boxing--this is the first Olympics for this. (Two things that you don't see on TV every day.) Such contrast, though discipline is of the essence in both. The only Polish boxer representing her country (woman or man) was required by her country's boxing organization to wear a skirt (like a field hockey skirt I guess). She lost to a much younger boxer from India. And it happened to be the Indian boxer's twin sons' 5th birthday. There are some men who would like to compete in SS--maybe one day. In fact ABC's Nightline did a piece on a men's team in England the other night.

If you get a chance to see SS during these Olympics, it's pretty neat because they have a system where the underwater and the above water images are digitally pieced together so you can see how the swimmers move underwater. You can't tell--it just looks like one image. One swimmer was apparently born with her umbilical cord around her neck and was suffocating. She credits this as the first time she ever held her breath:-)

Didja know badminton "birdies" (aka shuttlecocks) are made from ONLY the left wing feathers of a goose or duck? I did not know.

We've heard that the US is not getting good coverage of the Olympics. NBC is apparently doing a lousy job. Many of the medals that GB has won has been by Scots - with less than 10th the population.

I love SS. This used to be very popular in the '60s, I think. I also loved - I'm dating myself here - The June Taylor Dancers that performed on the Jackie Gleeson show back in the 60's. They would perform on the floor with the camera above and they moved so they looked like a kalidascope (spelling???). Very cool. sync

Good goals. Have a wonderful Sunday!


Umpqua on 08/05/2012:
I'm sure that's water retention from the weight training/muscle soreness. You'll be back down soon - congrats on getting back to the weights!


V on 08/05/2012:
What Umpqua said, I agree..Good job hitting the weights Biscotti :)

Hi Biscotti! So sorry I haven't had time to do anything else except sort through stuff before the move! Tomorrow (and tued and wed)the movers are coming to pack and ship our stuff. No fun. I'm probably heavier due to eating out, entertaining at home and a lot and stress, oh well. Will leave Washington dc area on sun, a week from today, spend 10 days in the pacific northwest and head to us emb tokyo on the 20th. Will post when we settle in tokyo. thank you for dropping me a line. hugs to you and keep up the good work!
