Could it really be that?
Well, after today (I'm already on coffee #2 - what else is there to do during a fire drill?) I'm going to test that out. Starting tomorrow it's decaf only for at least one week. I'm going to see how differently I feel after that (and during whatever form of "detox" my body needs) and go from there.
I've also stopped using dailyburn.com again. While I find it very helpful and accurate with respect to foods/calories and tracking, quite frankly it's a pain in the ass to use. And none of the other calorie trackers I've looked at are any better. And I'm not about to spend $500 plus data plan to get an iPhone with a barcode scanner to make it any easier. So for now it's back to basics - hopefully with a smarter approach to eating overall.
I am certainly learning that it's easier to eat smart and prevent a few pounds than it is to work my ass off to remove them. I just need to remember that at the right times. :)
