Just One Cup

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.

BBWW Coffee MugThis 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.

5 barks and woofs on “Just One Cup

  1. Congratulations, and keep up the good work. It can be very tough, I know. For instance, I have the body of a 25-year-old… but the forensics lab wants it back. (sorry)

  2. The only answer as you get older is to put really small portions on the plate and skip the after dinner cookie or Twix ice cream bar. Best you eat a good breakfast and skip lunch rather than the other way around. And good luck with the exercise promise to yourself. You can’t burn off the calories that way. It’s good for the heart and lungs, but the only way to cut out the over-eating habits is to stop taking them in in the first place. Trust me – I well know. I found I’d lost two pounds yesterday – 16 to go. Sigh.

  3. You guys are going to hate me, but I strive just to not drop under 100 lbs. I was once must chubbier. I understand how hard it can be to lose weight. How did I get skinny? I call it the “getting a divorce diet.” I don’t recommend it. However, I wish you all the best if you are trying to lose weight. Chances are you are okay just the way you are.
