Monday Motivation with Death Wish Coffee

Mornings can be rough y’all. Especially Mondays….

Here’s my goals for Monday mornings:

  • Wake up to my alarm the first time.
  • Write in my journal
  • Eat a healthy breakfast
  • Drink lots lots lots of coffee
  • Look put together with shower, fashion, make-up and not accidentally leave the house with no mascara or mis-matching socks
  • Get where I need to go on time and perky and not running late and cranky
  • Drink lots and lots of coffee
  • Oh and remember to bring a water bottle and some PROBAR snacks in my purse (I think that ties in with the “look put together”)

Oh…and make people think I really really really love mornings. That comes with the coffee.

I don’t dislike mornings.

I actually really love mornings.

Slow mornings.

Like this:


I love running in the morning, lazy breakfasts, reading  a good book and sipping coffee, morning yoga, and journaling while the sun come sup.

What I don’t love is having to be somewhere early in the morning.

It just takes me a while to get together. I love sleep. I never sleep enough. In my dream world, I would never have to be anywhere before 9 or 10 am. Preferably 10 or 11. (Because then I could do all the workouts, sleeping, eating, and other happy things AND have time to blow-dry my hair.)

Alas, that is not the way my life tends to go.

I have to get up early and be places early. Sometimes ridiculously early. (I have actually had to teach yoga classes before 6 am AND had meetings as early as 7 am. Not to mention all the races at the crack of dawn.) But I legitimately have to be places where I need to be awake, spunky, and look presentable.

That’s tricky business y’all.

Recently, I’ve found a new starter for my Monday mornings.

What is it, you may ask?

Death Wish Coffee.


Why do I love this so?

It’s Organic. It’s Fair Trade. It’s Dark Roasted (my favorite). It’s GOT EXTRA CAFFEINE folks.

Yes, that’s right. Typically the bolder the coffee, the less caffeine. So it means I need to drink a LOT of coffee to be chipper morning Lora. After careful work and taste research, Death Wish Coffee has brought the world a coffee that is highly caffeinated while still super strong and bold. GENIUS!!!

Not only does Death Wish Coffee taste absolutely amazing, (So rich! So smooth! So absolutely delicious!) but it gets me going longer and sooner with NO jitters. Just plain goodness.

It is seriously the best coffee I have ever had. And that’s saying a LOT.

Because, as you know, I love pretty am addicted to coffee. I love coffee. All coffee.

But this coffee?

But this is good stuff y’all.

Death Wish Coffee = miracle coffee.

Plus, they have this ridiculously awesome guarantee: “a 100% no bullshit 365 day guarantee that if this is not the strongest coffee you’ve ever had we’ll gladly give you a refund, just tell us what you thought was stronger,”

The bags come with this fantastic warning label:


This truly is REVOLUTIONARY coffee my friends.

I had it this morning. I got everything done and then some. I even wrote this blog post for y’all!

And lucky you! I asked my friends at Death Wish Coffee for a pound to give away to my lovely coffee-addicted followers and readers.

You are in for a treat!
I have a ONE POUND BAG of Death Wish Coffee for one lucky winner.

This will make every Monday so much better for you. Trust me friends, I had it myself this morning.

    I am so intrigued by this coffee! Also love the packaging. I take my morning coffee black! I always get strange looks when I order black coffee and people always feel the need to make sure I don’t want sugar lol! I guess my coffee choice seems too hardcore for a little lady 😉
