Withdrawal. Is. For. Real.
I gave up caffeine over the weekend, and this is seriously how I feel.
I had originally planned to give it up in Thailand, but I am SOOO glad I decided to do it now instead.
And here’s why:
- I will save at least $10/week by not buying Diet Mt. Dew. Ridic, I know.
- I will not feel like this my first week in Thailand. It’s currently 90 something degrees over there. Could you imagine? Going through this withdrawal in the middle of summer. Yuck.
- Numerous health concerns. Just Google it and hundreds of websites come up. I can’t possibly read all those, so I’m just going with “too much caffeine is bad.”
So even though I have a pounding headache, am ridiculously lethargic, and am craving the taste of a Diet Mt. Dew, I think it was the right decision.
But moving on…I went home this past weekend to good ole Byron and had a really good time! Even though I can’t sleep past 8:00 a.m., there is nothing that beats my bed at home. It is glorious.
My weekend was pretty tame though. I just hung out with the parents and my uber energetic niece while managing to eat my weight in Cinnamon Honey Bunches of Oats. No joke, I went through an entire box in 36 hours. Me + Cereal = Dangerous!!
When I got home last night, I decided to make another batch of cupcakes just because. These were sooo good!
FlufferNutter Cupcakes (from How Sweet It Is)
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup peanut butter morsels
2/3 cup marshmallow fluff
As always, I managed to finish off three of these bad boys before they even cooled. No time for that when there is peanut butter involved. 🙂
