Week 1 Review and Week 2 Plan

How did I feel Week 1 -
1.) Major headache the first few days as I started to withdrawal from sugar.
2.) Few breakouts.
3.) Felt a bit lethargic first week, but not too bad.
4.) Felt hunger waning by the end of the week.  I need to be careful about this and make sure that I am eating on my regular schedule.
5.) Confidence went up a little as I started to gain control.

Things I need to research/try -
1.) I need to find a substitute for my morning coffee creamer.  It has to be creamy and sweet.  I love starting my day with coffee, the news and emails.  So I have to have my morning coffee, but want to get rid of the chemical craziness that is called CoffeeMate Creamer!!

Things I need to start/continue/stop -
1.) START - I need to make sure I don't over extend myself on the weekends.  I have a lot that needs to be done in 2 days.  I MUST make sure that cooking and prep time are included in my Sunday plan or I will not do them and I will be in trouble. (which I didn't do yesterday so I am in trouble!).

2.) CONTINUE - working on my eating schedule.  I cannot be a free range eater.  It doesn't work for me.  I am not advocating this for everyone, it is just what I need to do.  This week has been good with a 7am, 12pm, 4 pm and 7pm eating schedule.  This includes plenty of water to make me feel full.

Plan for Week 2 -
1.) Buffalo Chicken Egg Muffins

2.) Slow Cooker Taco Meat (I bought lettuce for "shells"

Want to Try -
1.) Broccoli Rice Casserole -

2.) Crab Cakes -

3.) Beef Rice Stuffed Zucchini -

First Week Results -
I lost 7 pounds!!  Woo Hoo!!  My body typically slows down losing weight over the next 2 weeks and then hits a steady stride.  So I am not going to weigh myself most of this week since I won't see big drops every day.  Wish each week would be like the first, but slow and steady wins the race.
