Coffee vs. Orsi – To Create a better me. Vol. 2


Some people say coffee is good for you, others say it is terrible for you. I am definitely one who says coffee is great for me…for my soul at least. I am  addicted to the taste and definitely I am addicted to the process of making coffee.

I tried to be artsy with this picture, it did not work out.

I love the smell that spreads around the house when I make coffee at home. I love to grab my little mug, sit down on the couch and read, work on the blog or watch TV. Slowly sipping on a warm cup of coffee is the best.


My dad usually makes coffee for my mom, sister, and I in the morning and brings them upstairs. We just sit in bed and talk, sometimes for hours, sometimes for just couple minutes, but those times are always very valuable family times. I drink my coffee with honey and a little bit of milk.

When I used to buy drinks in coffee shops, I always got the sugary, sweet, delicious – delicious lattes. So much added sugar, very little actual coffee. I knew it was bad and I needed to stop doing that or at least minimize those times…and this is how I came up with the idea of the February challenge.

I tried to be artsy here too, this one worked out pretty well

Like I mentioned in my previous blog, How I fought back against my chocolate addiction, this year I am doing something new each month. Something that is good for my mind, for my body, and for my soul. In January, I did not eat chocolate at all, which helped me lose weight, and helped me decrease my chocolate cravings. I guess this means it was good for my body, but was it good for my soul? 😀 But back to the point:

In February, I did not drink coffee.

I started drinking a lot more green tea, instead of all the lattes and it not only helped my weight loss, but it was easy on my wallet too. But damn it was hard… I missed the process of making coffee, I missed the taste and I missed my little coffee mug! I can’t use that mug for tea…nono…that little mug is designated for only coffee drinking.

What changed?

  1. I lost weight! – 3 pounds which I believe is the result of drinking less sugary drinks. I also worked out, but not more than usually and did not change my eating habits either. So I would like to think that is the reason…
  2. Saved money!  – Every time I said…if it wasn’t for the challenge, now I would get a coffee, I wrote down $4 in my phone…turnes out in a month that saved me $56…eeek

What I learned…

  1. When ordering drinks at coffee shops, ask for sugar free options
  2. I go to coffee shops less. I set my monthly budget for $15…must stay under that price. No exceptions.
  3. I definitely love my morning ritual but now I drink coffee four times a week and green tea three times

So this is the conclusion I got out of my February challenge. These challenges are nice because they make me realize things I haven’t realized before and make me change towards a better and smarter ($56??? What the heck was I thinking) me.


Questions for you:

  1. What is your relationship with coffee?
  2. Do you prefer coffee or tea?
  3. How do you drink your coffee?



  1. Hát én bizony kávéfüggő vagyok. No nem cukorral, mézzel, forró, habos tejjel és a tetejére fahéj. Vagy Torani koncentrátum, mert tobzódni kell az ízeknek. Bár Torani elfogyott, így marad a fahéj. Reggel a nappaliban, vagy ha süt a nap, a teraszon elfogyasztott kávé és mellé egy remek könyv, isteni napindító foglalatosság. Bár mindenki megengedhetné magának ezt a reggeli töltekezést!
