Health: Day 26

Day 26 made my heart race...literally.

I didn't sleep well last night.  So me, in my infinite wisdom, decided to consume caffeinated coffee this morning to head off a sleep-deprived slumber later.  After about the third cup (#dontjudgeme), I could literally feel my heart racing and a rush throughout my body.  It was the oddest sensation.  I wasn't in pain.  I also had some stomach revolt, which I suspect was from the coffee itself.  (But I was only one day out from a stomach bug/virus.).

I was completely aware of how my body was responding to the stimulant.  I was hyper conscious—if there is such a thing.

Here I am writing this post at a little after 7:00pm and I can still feel some of the effects.

Hard lesson was learned today.  Only consume caffeine when in desperate need, and even then, sparingly.

Looking forward to a decaffeinated, make that un-caffeinated day tomorrow.

Whew...

Be open to what comes.
