I've officially said goodbye to coffee (for now). In all honesty, I stopped craving it. I used to love the taste, but the last couple times I got my cafe o'lait, it tasted like shit. In fact I couldn't even finish it. So it is back to chai for a little caffeine high. I am sure eventually, I'll crave it again, but so far I am enjoying the vacation. I've been sleeping more, 8-10 hours a night and even enjoying naps throughout the day. Sleep is the best. I love to sleep. It is dangerous when I lay down because usually within seconds, I am knocked out. And then dreaming seconds later. But, this is not a new trend. Caffeine or not, I am a sleeper and a dreamer.
Ok so I've got coffee off the intake list, but I have a new item hopping on (for today). I've been vegetarian for close to 7 years. I was vegan for about 2 and then I added yogurt and milk back in a few months ago. Not a lover of cheese, so that has not returned to my diet. But since Miwok I've been craving a turkey sandwich. Not fish. Not a burger. But a turkey sandwich. So today, I ate one. I decided I shouldn't be dogmatic in things that relate to my body. Ironically this is the first time in 7 years where I have craved meat. And I've been craving it on and off for the past month. In the past it was not even a thought. Not sure I will keep meat as part of my diet as it does interfere with beliefs I have. I am just taking one day at a time. If I crave coffee, I'll have it. If I crave turkey, I'll have it. Just going to keep listening to my body. It has never mislead me so far.
Ohlone is this weekend. I've been going back and forth about it as my climbing legs still seem to be in recovery since Miwok. But toe is good, knee is about healed, and I think I am over my cold. So fuck it (unless my body tells me differently come Sunday), time to throw on the running shoes and have some fun out on those hills!!!
