The other day, I drank a full cup of caffeine coffee and I had the headache of my life afterwards. This migraine shook me to my core. It lasted for hours. It affected my vision. I was nauseous. I was once again reminded that caffeine and I do not get along so well. Not well at all.
Coffee. I have a love hate relationship with it. Some say it has some health benefits. Some say it should be completely avoided. Well, my advice is you have to see how it affects your body. For me, it doesn't do a body good. I think it is mainly because I have been away from it so long having my babies and nursing.
Why did I even drink that coffee? I think it is a little bit of self-sabotage. I know it doesn't do my body good yet the smell of it brewing and the feel of the warm mug against my cold hands draws me to it. Brian was making it. It was Sunday. It was snowing outside. I went for it. I have never been a huge coffee drinker. I drink a cup here and there. When I was pregnant with my girls I gave it up and continued to give it up (for the most part) while nursing. For some reason, I was drawn to it the other day and I payed for it. Whew.
Motherhood can lead to self-sabotage. It's so easy to get overwhelmed and run to the kitchen to feel better. Whether it be caffeine, sugar, corn chips, chocolate chips or wine. I am guilty of it myself. The girls will be playing in the playroom and I will sneak off and grab a few chocolate chips right out of the bag. It happens. Here and there it's not an issue. Overtime, it can become a dangerous habit. The important step is learning to love ourselves even during the motherhood craziness. Loving ourselves and learning to understand what our bodies are telling us. That migraine was telling me to stay away from caffeine for awhile.
