July 8: Stop/Start Something

Good morning awesome friends! 🌞

It’s a brand new week and I’m excited to continue with my mini-assignments [of the ordinary kind]. I’ve been feeling more purposeful since I started this challenge and I love how blogging about it turns it into a lesson of sorts. The real goal here is to be blogging again, and this self-designed challenge is definitely helping me with that 📌

Today’s assignment is to start & stop something. Ideally it should be something permanent, perhaps a habit change, if not at least something I can do for a certain period of time.

I have chosen to:

Stop drinking coffee ☕️

This is a huge one for me as my morning cuppa is so ingrained into what makes my mornings magical. I look forward to it, I love the warm sensation, and without it my mornings just aren’t the same 💔 (Because yes, I tried this challenge a few times in the past already).

The reason why I’m “picking on” this wonderful elixir (again) is twofold. One is that I suspect it upsets my stomach, and therefor could be undermining my weight management efforts. And two is because it really does tinker with my energy levels throughout the day & even into the night.

This week I will observe what the absence of coffee does and we’ll see what happens next. (I don’t want to promise anything because my love for it is overwhelming 😆😆).

Start weighing myself daily

Just something small that I can use as a reminder to focus on my weight management efforts.

So! Although I already did these two for today, I realize that the best time to report on this assignment will be on Saturday yet. So I’ll see you guys then.

Tomorrow’s assignment is to (finally) finish my emerald green crochet crop top. I’ll have pictures for you so I’d love it if you checked back in 🙂

  1. I weigh myself daily too, but know to look at the trend, not the number as I can go up and down a couple of pounds daily. Good for you for trying new things!

  2. Oh, getting rid of coffee!? I know the struggle there. I need to give up the coffee–Tim Horton’s French Vanilla Cappuccino, to be exact. But it is hard. Hubby and I have been talking about dieting, and I know that will include giving up the coffee. I wish you much luck with your kicking the habit. I am cheering you on 🙂

    1. Thank you, Ginny ❤ It is proving to be VERY difficult especially since I hadn't put in a replacement – either another drink or something to do, so I'm just there blinking my eyes white-knuckling it, trying to find a distraction! LOL! 😀

      I guess this would be my suggestion for you & your husband too if you should try it. Find a replacement drink or something to do instead, maybe a morning walk if that's possible.
