Last week, our Bikinis in the Snow challenge was no caffeine. Morry has a Red Bull most days and I have coffee most afternoons. We thought we would try to cut out the caffeine and see how we felt.
How did I feel before trying this challenge?
I knew I was going to have a busy and was not looking forward to doing it without coffee.
How did I feel during the challenge?
I was pretty sluggish in the afternoons, but I was still able to function.
How do I feel after the challenge?
I know I can get by without coffee, but I feel more energetic and therefore, more productive when I have my caffeine.
What did I learn?
I learned that I do have the willpower to do or not do something. It was tough. There was one afternoon, I thought about quitting the challenge, but I stuck with it. Morry did the same. He stuck with it even though he was tempted to quit as well.
