Mini Mr. Coffee

I can’t believe it’s Friday. The joy of Fridays is lost on me. Because of my constant studying and my lack of a job, I lose track of time. Once I realize it’s Friday, I get worried because another week has gone by and I feel like I haven’t learned anything. It’s already October 12th, and my exam is on December 1st. I hope I’m prepared by then, because I really don’t feel ready now. I do tend to overreact when I’m stressed though, so who knows.

I did my typical Starbucks/gym routine today. Nothing too exciting there. My parents and I went to Hometown Buffet for dinner. We had these great coupons for 50% off, but the Hometown Buffet near us doesn’t accept them anymore, even though there’s no expiration date! What a gyp! We ended up paying full price ($10.99 per person). I love going to Hometown Buffet, but we haven’t gone in a long time. It’s not the highest quality food, but the variety is great. Considering I’m trying to lose weight, I didn’t stuff myself the way I did when I was “fat.” I limited myself on the desserts. I only got one small square of Oreo cheesecake, and I didn’t even finish it. A few years ago, I would get four or five desserts and devour them without a second thought. Even still, I’m probably going to go to the gym this weekend or work out extra hard on Monday.

After dinner, we walked around Wal-Mart to work off some of the meal we just ate. I ended up buying the cute programmable 4-cup coffee maker from Mr. Coffee that I was researching a few days ago. It’s really cute! It’s a miniature version of the 12-cup coffee makers. If the 12-cup coffee makers were Dr. Evil, this one would be Mini Me. I’m going to make my first programmed cup of coffee tomorrow morning! It’s amazing how excited I can get from a coffee maker!

    Coffee puts the system under the strain of metabolizing a deadly acid-forming drug, depositing its insoluble cellulose, which cements the wall of the liver, causing this vital organ to swell to twice its proper size. In addition, coffee is heavily sprayed. (Ninety-two pesticides are applied to its leaves.) Diuretic properties of caffeine cause potassium and other minerals to be flushed from the body.

    All this fear went away when I quit, and it was a book that inspired me to do it called The Truth About Caffeine by Marina Kushner. There are five things I liked about this book:

    1) It details–thoroughly–the ways in which caffeine may damage your health.

    2) It reveals the damage that coffee does to the environment. Specifically, coffee was once grown in the shade, so that trees were left in place. Then sun coffee was introduced, allowing greater yields but contributing to the destruction of rain forests. I haven’t seen this mentioned anywhere else.

    3) It explains how best to go off coffee. This is important. If you try cold turkey, as most people probably do, the withdrawal symptoms will likely drive you right back to coffee.

    4) Helped me find a great resource for the latest studies at CaffeineAwareness.org

    5) Also, if you drink decaf you won’t want to miss this special free report on the dangers of decaf available at http://www.soyfee.com
