Hello all my gorgeous friends,
I really mean it. You guys are all gorgeous inside and out. Thanks for supporting my weight-loss journey so far. Three people told me that I have lost a lot of weight this week. Let's see, my son was the first one who told me on Wednesday. He is in first grade, but he is currently reading at a fifth grade level, #proudmama. He broke the news to me before I had a chance to read his AR (Accelerated Reader) scores. I asked him to give me a big hug. After he hugged me, he looked at me and said, "You lost weight, mommy." I guess it's because it was easier for his little arms to go around me this time. I am sorry; I am getting emotional here. Can I get some tissues, please? My sister told me when she woke me up from my sleep at 5:30 yesterday evening to return my laptop. And my co-worker told me when I got to work. So thank you guys for keeping me motivated. I appreciate that. This post is for you coffee drinkers. Skip this post and hop on if you don't drink coffee:-) Did I tell you guys that I got addicted to coffee once? Okay, you probably did not have to know that! But now you know, and what are you going to do with that information? I know, right? Nothing! Anyway, I got over my little addiction and coffee has been a major part of my journey now.
- Energy Booster: While coffee is not enough to produce a significant weight loss, it has been my best energy booster in the morning, especially when I drink it before my morning walks. Drinking a regular cup of coffee 45 minutes before I start working out keeps me alert and keeps me going longer than I would if I did not have one.
- Calorie Burner: Coffee helps me burn more calories while I work out. I am not sure why, but I tend to sweat more if I drink coffee before my workouts.
- Appetite Suppresser: Coffee suppresses my appetite. I take my coffee strong, black, with sugar. And one cup with two slices of bread is all I need until it's time for me to eat lunch. Yes, I get to skip snack when I have coffee for breakfast.
