Day 65 - The Cappuccino

Hello blog.

It's getting difficult to remember what I've eaten recently, because my sleep has been so erratic lately. But I'm pretty sure I started with a cappuccino from Starbucks.

I don't really see what the big deal is with Starbucks. I think they do a lot to make the products seem like they're of a much higher quality than they actually are.

McDonald's of the coffee shop world I guess.

I had that with a spinach and feta wrap. Mid-morning I had a donut, then ate nothing until one roast beef sandwich for dinner.

Probably around 1400 - 1600 on the day.

My sleep has been really bad recently. I just finished what I needed to for work today and I'm about to go to sleep. It's 4:00pm and I just feel really sleepy for some reason.

I actually didn't mention that I've added Coca-Cola Zero to my diet. I bought a case of it and have been drinking like 6 of them a day the past couple days. I didn't think it was relevant since it's zero calorie, but that's probably the source of my sleep problems right there.

Until tomorrow,


  1. That's alot of caffeine...and aspartame. Aspartame does cause sleeplessness in some people.

  2. Yeah, all that caffeine will play havoc with sleep. The other problem is that, due to the high sweetness of the drink, the body expects a blood sugar spike and releases insulin to pre-empt it, causing fat cell proliferation.

    I used to drink Diet Cokes by the case, but I didn't start losing weight until I dropped the habit.

  3. Diet Cokes, not so good for you. Maybe cut back a little and replace some it with water, or even some iced green tea (decaf!).

  4. Aspartame also affects your nervous system, which affects sleep.
