The last vice?
I used to drink a lot of coffee. Not quite to the point where I would make a cup as soon as the previous one was done but close. I rarely drank anything else.
It's my first drink of the day, yep on an empty stomach. And when I got a travel mug, well that was a game changer. I had hot coffee on hand the whole day even when I was out and about.
Gradually as I've been making healthier choices over the last year, I've cut it down to 1 in the morning before work and 2 at the weekend and on holidays.
I cut out Pepsi Max at Christmas (I was seriously addicted!!) as well as cutting down on sugar (hardly have any now) and salt (just a tiny pinch of sea salt when cooking pasta and rice). I've cut out alcohol (I last had some wine on my birthday) and I drink lots of water and herbal tea. So having made all these healthy choices, why am I still drinking coffee?
I was drinking my second cup this morning and thought 'I'm not actually enjoying this any more.' Maybe with all the changes I've been making my taste buds just don't like it. So I'm going to try giving up coffee too.
Eeeeek!! Wish me luck! 🍀
