Slightly better

Philosophical question of the week...  If you give up carbs, alcohol and coffee...  Is life actually worth living?  Is it genuinely prolonged or does it just feel like it is?
Am I feeling a little bit sorry for myself...?  Possibly...
It's mostly just being tired again - in actually getting more determined on the caffeine front the worse I feel simply because I don't like depending on something like that - and I don't think there's any doubt that I was depending on it with great enthusiasm. I don't think Decaf coffee tastes as good as the real thing - though it could just be a matter of adaptation, like switching from full sugar sodas to sugar free or cutting out the sugar in the coffee. Maybe soon I won't like the taste of full strength coffee...  Joy? Is that at all likely? Or do I just have to settle for believing in the benefits while accepting the flavour downgrade?
So it was a good day food and drink wise but there was no exercise except walking around the office. I plan to try to go out at lunchtime - I did intend to today, but had a meeting to attend.

Food today:
Breakfast: thin quick cook turkey breast steaks topped with microwaved poached eggs
Lunch: homemade soup
Dinner: chicken thighs with lemon cream sauce and grilled asparagus
Snacks: pate stuffed celery sticks


  1. On the decaf front I am a believer in a little of what you fancy does you good so I restrict the amount of coffee to 2 cups but it is the genuine article not something that has been chemically mucked about with. As for carb deprivation that I hate so I don't do it. I am fortunate that I don't have a sweet tooth so deserts are not a problem to me.

  2. I think decaf tastes different but I like it. Maybe I have become used to it. What it doesn't have is that 'kick'. I also have decaf 'proper' coffee (as opposed to instant') and I find that very palatable too. I'm glad I persisted with that one.
    We're all different!
