Thank you so much for stopping by! Time appears to be flying by way too fast and I'm looking to do something exciting with the rest of my life. I'll be starting an online fitness business called "GoBeDo" sometime this year. Be sure and check in. You'll learn about High Interval Training, Yoga, Body weight exercise, Spartan races, Functional training and whole lot more. Real $hit, for Old Timers like me. Why? We only have one shot at a grandiose and fulfilling life. Let's get busy creating one. Remember, it's the start that stops most people. The last thing I want to take to my grave is "regret!"
Peace/Love and Hugs!

The TRUTH About Caffeine: Friend or Foe?

I want to tell you one specific thing that caffeine is doing to you, that is actually robbing you of energy, as opposed to giving you energy.

When you drink coffee or even energy drinks, caffeine is the main component. The main drug in there  is a stimulant. What a stimulant does is jazz up your body. It jazzes up your adrenal glands, which are little walnut shaped glands that sit on top of your kidneys. They secrete a lot of your stress hormones, your fight or flight response hormones. One of them being adrenalin.

That is why you feel the initial euphoria. It is really an adrenalin surge. But as you’ve probably witnessed, that adrenaline surge, that feeling of go, go, go, doesn’t last forever. It’s followed by a crash. Therefore you seek out more caffeine afterwards. Therein there’s lies the problem.
