Very Tired

September 26, 2009

I had drawing projects that I wanted to complete recently, but this last week I have had no energy. It’s very hard for me to get out of bed or even go outside of my home. Today I figured out what the problem might be- I had recently stopped drinking Sweet Tea/Iced Tea. Not for good, but I wanted to take a break and see how long I could go without sweet tea. I really wanted to stop feeling the need to drink tea everyday and decrease my high sugar consumption.

The problem is that not only do I lose the energy from sugar but, more importantly, I lose the caffeine boost. You would not think black tea had enough caffeine to even matter. However, I brewed some tea today (unsweet) and after consuming most of it, I felt a lot better and instantly regained my energy. I’m still trying to cut back on sugar, so I will have to suffer through unsweet for awhile. It’s either drink unsweet tea or feel tired all the time and never get around to completing any of my artwork. And I’m pretty slow with my drawing even with the tea, so meh.

Good thing about drinking sweet tea all the time- I almost never desire cookies, cake, or other types of sweets.  They still taste good, but I don’t have a craving for them. When I don’t drink sweet tea for awhile, the cravings come back.  I don’t know if I should rely on pure willpower and consume very little of either one, or decide which is the lesser of two evils.
