National Coffee Day!!


Something you should know about me, I LOVE my coffee.


It gets me going every morning and gives me a pick-me-up when I really need a push to get through the day and I seriously don't function well without it. 

So much so, it's kind of become a running joke with my family and friends.
In fact, my best friend, Miss Courtney, would greet me at the door in silence with a cup of coffee if I'd been up late the night before.
She gets me.

I'm drinking some now as I type this.

When I started Intermittent Fasting, I was relieved to find that I didn't have to give up my coffee. I just had to switch to unsweetened and black, which wasn't too big of a deal, because I had completed a sugar detox a couple years before discovering IF.

Through the detox, I became somewhat taste-sensitive to sugar where, depending on the food item, a little was almost too much for me anymore. As a result, my coffee was mainly just a little bit of cream anyway.

It makes me appreciate them all that much more.


Or if I'm needing a little extra something or fighting tummy issues and whatnot, I consult my resident Essential Oil encyclopedia, (thanks Courtney), and add a drop or two of orange, peppermint, ginger, or cinnamon bark, to name a few, to my cup o' joe and help aid my body in getting back to good again...


Coffee is definitely one of my favorite things and today just so happens to be National Coffee Day!!


So, if you're a coffee-holic like myself, or just enjoy the occasional cup... 
And sip your way through the weekend with me!
Cheers,
Carly

Carly Everywhere I look I see people struggling with weight loss and unsure of what program to follow to lose weight. I see a lot of people convinced that they must count calories/macros/points to lose weight. When I tell them they can let that go and simply count time, they don’t trust me.
