Yesterday I fasted in anticipation of the wellness fair held at work where I got my insurance-required biometric assessment done. That meant blood work, and although they didn’t require it, I held off eating or drinking anything more than water from midnight on.
This fast meant forgoing my morning coffee. I usually have one mug before work to get the day going and maybe one at the office. Once the tests were over I had a light lunch and a regular dinner, but zonked out before dark. When I got up this morning, I really needed the coffee to get going. No, I didn’t have the shakes and symptoms associated with caffeine withdrawal, but it sure made a difference once I had that first couple of sips of Folger’s Black Silk.
By the way, all systems are functioning within normal parameters, but I still plan on getting in more exercise and losing some weight.
