Very tired this morning

Not sure why. Slept well, went to bed at a reasonable time, but have woken up feeling stiff and very tired. I won't believe the benefits of cutting out caffeine and sugar until I actually see some bloody benefits, ho ho.

Yes, I've cut out sugar, and cut WAY back on caffeine, in an attempt to try this two-week starter low-carb diet thing. Read all the information, figured it's worth a shot to kick-start me again, and I've heard there's benefits other than weight loss in the reduction of sugars/caffeine/etc. in one's diet. Only two cans of Diet Coke yesterday, that's a real drop for me. I went to the store on Tuesday night to get Caffeine-Free Diet Coke, but they were all out of Fresca, C-F Diet Coke, and Diet Sprite (Coke products were on sale). This tells me someone out there is doing the same thing I am... so I settled for low-cal lemonade, and it's okay, but it's not fizzy. I seem to need fizz.

Be that as it may, it was the main reason I didn't try the chutney. :) (See rahirah )

But I'm still tired. :)

I admit it, I'm the other person buying Caffeine-Free Diet Coke. It's not great, but you get tired of Diet 7-Up after a while.

I'm doing this mainly in a desperate attempt to get some sleep.

At our Bashas?! Wow, you shop far afield. :D

I'm not going all-out on this, doing "The Zone" or Atkins or anything, just cutting DOWN. I'm not going to give up everything completely (like candy, for which I am a mega-ho). :) But I'm going to be hard on myself for a couple weeks to get myself back into the "swing" of better eating.

No, but the unprecedented leap in the sales of caffeine-free sodas has caused the companies to stock up here, shorting the deliveries in your part of the Valley. "Better send that stuff to North Phoenix! They're drinking lakes of it up there!" ;-)

I'm not doing any particularly stringent dieting myself. I'm losing some weight, slowly, and with luck I won't have desperate cravings for FOOD RIGHT NOW.

Oh, I see. That makes sense. :)

Two weeks. It's gonna be tough, but two weeks, at least... :)
