caffeine ban



Pardon my long blog absence. I've always reasoned in the past that am somewhere buried under piles of workloads that often kept me from the blogging scene. Well to say that now would be half-truth, i was actually privileged to have a couple of time off but to my detriment kept myself extremely unoccupied and uninterested in anything. It's kind'a one disadvantage of being an indiepreneur, I could lounge around without a care about time because there's no big boss to tell me what to do. Still, am too spontaneous for a regular 8 to 5 job, so ok i take it back. I love my life. 


The culprit could probably the new "caffeine ban" I imposed on myself. You see am a big coffee drinker and without it, it's like am on valium-overdose. I zone out and conk out in a wee bit of work. Not that there's something wrong with caffeine consumption except that for me I drink it more than i take water...which I find out just recently to be a big health no no (duh me!). Sadly I had to wait to get sick to get that into my head. So if you're a coffee lover like me, just don't forget to hydrate with water to compensate for the liquid loss!


I never thought life would be possible without my daily caffeine fix but to my own amazement I managed to live without it for over a week now. Funny thing though is that I've been eating much instead (as evidenced by the photos above....hahaha). H, sonshine and I had been busy going around new food havens here in Baguio and quite noticeably my food intake had considerably doubled. Anyhoo, am not ditching my lattes completely, I just need to get used to this hydration thing for one more week, lest I'd fall back to my old ways!


How about you guys, got any hard habits too difficult to break?

  2. So glad you're back, Aiz. My habit is the one you're giving up lol. Although it's only one cup now and decaf while I'm feeding. I think you are so brave giving it up :) Dark chocolate is my other hard drug of choice. Take care my friend. I love these photos by the way. And the notations - is this an Adobe product?

    1. Its really so hard to give up coffee completely...sigh. and who could blame us from loving it too much. It's too darn good. Lol! I used photoscape for the gallery and photoshop for the annotations. I used a psd brush chalk style...found it free through puglypixel.com

  3. I am so loving your blog! I was a heavy coffee drinker once too, but my hyperacidity went severe late 2010 so I had to avoid drinking it so it won't develop into ulcer. :)

  7. i was wondering where you went but aww your son is too cute! :D

    i have a nail-biting habit. 21 years and counting. i'm going through a calm phase now (meaning i haven't bitten for a few weeks and there's regrowth) but i'm afraid i might regress (lol i talk like i'm an addict).
