I stopped drinking coffee quite a while ago. Oh I would have a cup on the road when I traveled, but I don't drink it around my house. I have replaced it with one freshly squeezed lemon, hot water, and a dash of sea salt.

I have one cup every morning, gets me going. I have recently discovered that it's a sleep aid, which is counter-intuitive to a morning drink.

For example, I woke up at 0230 this morning, couldn't get back to sleep, and said screw it and got up. Made myself a hot lemon, read my mail, watched a little TV, then went back to bed about 0415.

I fell asleep quickly and had an incredible deep rem sleep, with amazingly vivid dreams. Woke up at 0600 and felt totally refreshed!

Tonight I'm sitting here writing this post, drinking a hot lemon. It's 1915 and I'm ready to hit the sack, should be interesting. I should also note that I did three laps, worked out, and hit the gym hard today. Goodnight.
