Confession...I failed.

Funny Apology Ecard: Dear Body, I'm sorry I failed you this week by drinking coffee. Better luck next week.

Just as the title and picture suggests...I failed. Three times this week. *sigh*

So many of you already know that I cut caffeine out of my diet back in June due to the issues it was causing my TMJD. I know that there are health benefits associated with drinking coffee in moderation, but the side affects it was having on my jaw outweighed the benefits so it was something that I was forced to give up. It was the coffee or continue to have facial pain and a tense jaw. The decision was pretty easy to make, but not so easy to keep as you can imagine.

I've been getting up an hour earlier to try to get into work at 7 (ask me how that's going) and failing miserably. So needless to say I've been even more tired since I've been getting 7 hours of sleep instead of 8. So coffee happened this week. TWICE. With no regrets. It was sooooo good and my jaw was OK. Not the best but not horrible. I will stop before it becomes a habit again and I'm kicking myself in the ass for being so stupid.

I also failed my September challenge. I weighed myself today. I do have a valid reason for cheating though. I finally ordered a body fat analyzer and you kind of need an accurate weight to get an accurate reading. Soooooo...I weighed myself and I lost 1.2 pounds. Sounds exciting huh? Until I realized that those 1.2 pounds were the ones that I gained last time I weighed myself. *face palm*

So there you have it. My confession. The confessional is now open. Anything you want to 'fess up about? Come on, you know you want to! ;)
