Redemption by Caffeine

I thought I might redeem myself after two personal vent blogs. Never a pretty sight, however you know I always keep my faithful readers in the loop.

With that being said - it is a caffeine filled sort of day.

I awoke at 5:45am. Yes, this is not normal for me. However it is a necessity. I have to take the egyptian to work this morning. (I have new followers - let me explain, my husband immigrated to America a little over a year ago. He is still learning how to drive.) He has a new job and has to work 7am to 3pm. (sometimes 3 - 11pm.) He works in the hotel industry. (Which I am actually pretty excited about!)

What is needed more than anything is -CAFFIENE. Of the strongest variety.

I cannot believe out of the hundreds of posts I have written, I have not bothered to truly dive into coffee or caffeine. Well, my friends, that ends now.

Today I will take a look at the pros and cons of CAFFEINE.

Let's start with the pros:

Improves your ability to think clearly and solve problems, and can actually raise your IQ

Increases your short-term memory, helps you concentrate, and relieves boredom

Is a powerful antioxidant, combating muscle damage and helping you to stay younger

Improves your mood and overcomes depression, creating an "attitude of success"

Helps you run, swim, and cycle longer and faster

Increases the painkilling power of common analgesics and is itself a strong pain reliever

Grows brain cells in the areas of the brain responsible for long-term memory

That all sounds excellent! Now let's look at the cons.. (boo)




Increase in breast tenderness


Mild insomnia

Increased heart rate

Increased blood sugar

Difficulty concentrating

Mild stomach upset

Severe negative effects of caffeine include:

Panic attacks

Irregular heartbeat

Sleep deprivation

Continuous stomach problems

Prolonged depression

Sleep disorders

Hmmm.. well.. ummm.. hmmm.
What is your favorite way to imbibe? Me? Coffee all the way
