Two weeks ago, I asked for an intervention. I never did receive that intervention, although I thank you all for your helpful comments. I did, however, find an enabler.
As I was going through my huge pile of unread magazines, I came across an article shouting the benefits of your daily dose of coffee. Just what I need, another excuse (well 3 more actually).
Your daily cup (or three or four) of coffee or tea could actually be improving your health. Research shows that EMBRACING your habit just might reduce your risk of…
- Endometrial cancer: Women who drank more than four cups (!!!) of coffee or tea each day were 50% less likely to develop endometrial cancer than nondrinkers.
- Stroke: Those who had an average of two to three cups a day were 19% less likely to experience a stroke.
- Muscle pain: Having two or three cups of coffee frist made exercisers feel less sore afterward.
Article can be found in the September 15th edition of Woman’s Day.
So there you have it…my three new excuses for continuing my addiction. I think I just need to kick Starbucks to the curb and suck it up and either make my own (which I found a great iced coffee recipe last night) or just go to WaWa for el cheapo coffee (which isn’t too bad by the way).
