Caffeine Withdrawal

Withdrawal. Is. For. Real.

I gave up caffeine over the weekend, and this is seriously how I feel.

Minus the rather large nose. And long blond hair.

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:

  1. I will save at least $10/week by not buying Diet Mt. Dew. Ridic, I know.
  2. 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.
  3. 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. 🙂
