decaf is NOT a good thing
I thought I'd be a good little girl and switch to decaf while dieting. That lasted exactly 11 hours. My daily liquid intake is one pot of coffee throughout the morning (Those "10 cup" coffeemakers? Who the hell measured the cups? 1 mug = 2 cups. They should definitely measure in mugs.) and then water, water, water throughout the rest of the day. So, post-gym I went to SBUX (there's actually one right across the parking lot, and I did not drive
to it, as several other gym-goers did after their workouts. What the hell? You just worked out, now you're going to drive 100 yards?) and got my venti drip...decaf. Two hours later I was zonked out on the couch with a raging headache, and stayed that way all afternoon. I just made a pot of coffee, and headache is magically gone. Screw decaf.
