Sweet Tea. The first step to reclaiming my life back

Sweet Tea. Oh How I have missed you.

For the last 19 months I have highly restricted caffeine due to pregnancy and nursing. For the first time in a year and a half I don't have a life literally depending on my body for food! And to celebrate freedom I have had three large sweet teas in one week.

Thanks to the vast search results of Google my search for a picture also yielded the fact that each glass of tea is 310 calories. Fantastic! I will think about that next week when I introduce running back into life.

In addition to the flexibility of a caffeinated beverage I have started to read for fun again. In fact, if I am being honest, that is partly why I wanted to stop nursing. I need those spare 20 minutes of time each day to read Francine Rivers' newest book. It was released in March. I love her novels! I have been impatiently waiting for her to finish this novel for three years. So the Medella pump is taking the shelf as the books come off it.


  1. Uh oh...I've pretty much been enjoying one caffeinated beverage a day for the past 3 months. I did avoid it completely at the beginning, but then life got the better of me. I don't think Wyatt minds, he seems to like sweet tea! In moderation, of course. I'm not like overloading my unborn child with excessive amounts of caffeine or anything. I swear. I feel like I'm confessing publicly...

  2. Looking at that picture makes me really thirsty and I dont even like sweet tea!
