In case you missed it, click here for the post that kicked it off.
As far as food is concerned, it was a rather simple and easy week. Chicken, eggs, lots of fruits and veggies. I didn’t have to dance around any meals that would be away from home or dinners out, it was nice. In the upcoming week I hope to expand my menus a bit more and try some new meals and recipes.
I’ve dealt with this change A LOT better than I anticipated. Monday and Tuesday were rough going. I could barely stay awake and the cravings were killing me. Wednesday came and I felt like a new woman! I had energy from the time I woke up (around 8am), until the time I crawled back into bed (about 11:30pm). I was so productive all day. Best of all, I ate until I was full and felt no cravings.
Thursday and Friday were much like Wednesday: high productivity/energy and no cravings.
Wednesday and Thursday nights also came with some of the best nights sleep. I haven’t felt that well rested in a LONG time!
Saturday the cravings came back with a vengeance. I had so much to do, so many errands to run, and I was a little stressed out about things. I wanted cookie dough. Really, I thought I NEEDED the cookie dough. So I bought a pack of Pillsbury Simply Cookies with the logics that it’s like I would make them at home – without the additives and other junk. Sadly, or not, the cookie dough was not what I expected. One cookie was all I needed to confirm that my body was already changing.
Truth? I am a little sad that I can’t enjoy all the sweets like I used to, but deep down I know it’s for the best. Duh!
Oh – I haven’t had an iced coffee since last Sunday, September 30th. I am inching in the worst way for an iced coffee with cream. And make it a Pumpkin iced coffee too, please. But I am not giving in and Alex won’t let me if I tried.
I suppose there is just one last piece of business. My weight.
