Coffee

I know – you get it – I am back in school! My schedule is crazy and sometimes I feel like I am barely holding on in re anything beyond school, class prep, home life and work. Needless to say, my energy level has been crappy!!! So last weekend I went on a hunt … to find some energy ;-). I bought a series of products and tracked my body’s response. Here is my caffeine review:

  • Runa Clear Energy – Orange Passion (http://runa.org/clean-energy-drinks/): Bitter taste so I also added sweeterner. It boosts 120 mg of caffeine and only 10 calories. I had NO response.
  • Steaz Organic Energy – Berry Flavor (http://steaz.com/products/organic-energy/berry/): This was my favorite in reference to taste! There are only 100mg of caffeine BUT 23mg of sugar (probably why it tastes so good :-(). The product’s label claims to be packed with other goodies, including green tea, yerba mate, guarana and acai. However, no energy boost :-(.
  • Vuka Intelligent Energy – Renew Mango (http://www.vuka.com/store/): HATED IT!!!! 160 mg of caffeine and label claims tons of vitamins and nutrients.

Today I had my annual appointment with my primary care provider. Would you like to know what she told me??? I NEED TO EXERCISE!!!!!!!!!!! So there you go … 😉
