A Difficult Decision

If you have ever worked out with me, you know that I sweat. Actually, if you have ever hung out with me you know that I sweat. It is something I've always done, but it seems that it is starting to get waaay too out of control right now. And I'm not talking like a little bit of sweat if it's hot, I mean I can be standing just out of the shower, in a cool room, and beads of sweat will be pouring out of my armpits. Literally. TMI???

I have dealt with it in varying degrees for the past 15 years. And yes, I have tried a lot of different options. Mike recently asked me if I was using anti-perspirant, or just deoderant? Really, honey?! I have tried men's full strength, Certain Dri that you put on at night, and even did some research on botox that is supposed to stop the sweat. But, let's be honest...if I am putting out money for botox I'm not wasting it on my armpits!

I've decided to face the one issue that I know is contributing...caffeine. It's a harsh reality that I have been avoiding for fear of what life would be like without my caffeine fix. Is it possible to fold laundry in the afternoon without an iced tea? Will I be as crazy hyper at my 5:30am Body Back class without my coffee??? The more I started to panic about not drinking caffeine, that more it started to make sense that I needed a break.

So here I sit, on a Monday morning, facing what could possibly my toughest challenge yet. Caffeine free for sweats sake. I just wish I would've started this on a day where I wasn't hung over...


  1. Good luck. That would be a tough one for me. I have a feeling that your inner energy will shine through even without your caffeine.

    I'll be interested to hear if it helps.

  2. You got this Ang!! You can do ANYTHING!!
