Day 17: Still muzzy-headed

That pretty much says it all. I go through periods of clarity each day, but mostly I'm foggy. I lose track of my thoughts in the afternoon; it might be time to re-think the afternoon snack. A little protein might help, even if I'm not especially hungry.

One odd thing since I started my whole coffee detox is that I seem to want to front-load my eating. I wake up hungry, which is odd, and I eat three or four times before noon. Eric thinks it's funny and calls me a hobbit (first breakfast, second breakfast, elevensies...). After noon I might nibble a little, and I eat less for dinner, which is probably why I'm waking up hungry.

OK, so I had something else I wanted to say, but I've deleted several rambling tangents. I think perhaps it's time to go get some tea and a snack. I still have a lot of work ahead. I keep thinking I picked the wrong time to give up coffee, but there isn't a right time. All I can do is deal with it and press on. And hope that someone, somewhere, will find my brain and send it home.

Try a handful of almonds or a peanut butter sandwich. (Or peanut butter and celery if you want to avoid the carbs)

I actually thought about the PB&J but opted for Fig Newtons. Not the best choice, but they were good! We had pasta for dinner, so I think I'll go with the PB&J tomorrow. The combination of protein and carbs helped a lot. Low carb diets don't work for me, which works well, because I love my carbs. Although we do have celery and a big jar of Nutella. Hmmm.....

I saw those big Nutella jars in the commissary yesterday. Never tried it with celery, but I'll bet it would be good.
