Nearly 2 weeks in, and today is the first day i didn't want a coffee when I woke up - I wouldn't have even had one if I could, which really surprised me. I've found lots of great recipes and have taken time to try new things. Actually a little planning and a few trips to the health food section has satisfied many urges & cravings. At this point i don't miss most of what we can't have.
I'm finding it really interesting to notice my habits and cravings at certain times of the day often because I'm not getting enough down time or sleep. The only time I want carbs is around the 2:00 point in the day (usually when I haven't slept well or eatten enough), or around 9:00 at night, when I should be going to be early, but stay up a little longer reading or watching TV. I'm reading the sleep section in the Hormone Diet by Dr. Natasha Turner, and how sleep interacts with so many hormones. I never knew how sleep deprived most of us are and how our sleep habits directly relate to our nutrition and weight gain, although I think Kirsten has been trying to tell me this for awhile now...
I'd love to hear how you all are doing and how your feeling. Anybody get a surge of energy or feel really great??
Any Tips/Tricks to get through this weekend...Valentines Day?!
