Before I fell pregnant with Layla I loved my Coffee. My favourite was a Latte Coffee which come in sachets but whilst pregnant the morning sickness seemed to last all morning and night and I instantly went off coffee. That was probably a good thing, but unfortunately I was hugely addicted to the caffeine and I had quickly replaced my favourite mug of coffee for Energy drink.
Once Layla was born my energy drink consumption had sky rocketed along with cups of coffee which I now liked the taste of again. I knew this was bad for my health, but every time I tried to ditch those high energy drinks I would feel so dreadful and dead on my feet. Then my consumption would go up a notch to bring me back upto speed… ive literally just gone in circles!!! 🙁
Today things came ahead after I seen a very young girl on the This Morning show talking about how she suffered 3x heart attacks after drinking lots of Jager bombs which contains a high volume of energy drink in each Jager bomb. This really just hit hard at home with me. I nearly died from a subarachnoid Aneurysm haemorrhage when I just turned 23 years old. I got a very lucky second shot at this life business stuff and so I don’t want to screw up from my own stupidity.
So Heres What I Drink in a Day:
- My Morning Cup of Mocha Coffee
- Then another after I get back from the school run
- about 10-11am I have my 1st can of Energy drink
- Dinner is accompanied by another Energy Drink
- about 2pm ill enjoy another Mocha Coffee just before the kids come home from school
- for tea ill have another can of energy drink
- then from 7pm-midnight Ill have about 3 cans of energy drinks
So as you can see I consume quite my fair share of Caffeine throughout the day and I’ve shocked myself at how much I do have, now I’ve written it down. So there’s also no surprise at why I don’t really sleep all that too well at night.
So as of right now im going 100% cold Turkey.. I shall update on my progress…. wish me Luck 🙂 x
