Coffee... It's My One True Love



Recommended Posts

(Besides my gf, of course)

But seriously, I am coffee snob. I have the molecular diagram of caffeine tattooed on my arm, I have a dozen different machines/gadgets to make the sweet bean juice, and I roast my own.

I take my coffee very seriously. Obviously I can't be slurping it down like a mad man during the first few weeks post-surgery because I need to stay hydrated (caffeine isn't exactly conducive to that), but how soon did you guys start swilling the go-go juice again?

These words make my soul sing with joy. ;)

Ok, I MIGHT be over-exaggerating, but that's excellent info! Thanks!

Wow, by the looks of your tatoo you are a committed coffee connoisseur!! I was allowed to drink regular coffee again after my two week check up.

I was "allowed" at 3 weeks. I "allowed myself" at 6 days. Black, hot and yummy.

Haven't looked back- and enjoy too many each and every day, along with iced unsweetened sun tea- with lemon, of course

I'm 2 weeks out and am allowed to have caffeine but for any amount of caffeine i consume, I have to have the same amount of non-caffeinated beverage to stay hydrated :)

No desire since surgery I tried drinking a cup it gets cold. So I don't drink it anymore.

I was able to have coffee after two days. Watch the milk though - it may make u feel a bit sick in the tummy if you have too much. I have always liked my coffee strong - but even more so now. As such I limit to one strong coffee each morning as my 'treat' - besides I'd get the sack if I skipped it.

This one shocked me! I don't know why, but it did! My son is headed today to the NCAA headquarters in Indiana with 19 other students from University of Iowa. ( Did I mention how proud and excited I am for him??? He had to submit an application, write out essays, etc to be chosen from a pool of 1000 who applied!!! And he is a freshman!!!) They are spending the next 4 days there studying, learning, meeting with NCAA management, etc.

I'm sending this to him so he can ask about it there. Interested to find out how they monitor the athletes with caffeine consumption.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
