We made it a Full Week!
Wow - hard to believe I've had no glutten, sugar, dairy, caffiene, etc. for over a week. The finding what to eat part isn't that hard, Jay even says he's likes what I've been making for dinner too. It was the mental/emotional part that really got me. When I was tired, i would go for sugar or caffiene to get me through the hump. When I didn't plan my meals properly, I would pop a peice of cheese or have a sandwich. Habits of eating later at night or while watching TV was another habit I had to break through. The cravings have almost all past, but the urge to have a cookie drove me to a health food store in search of something that would satisy. I left with this date/nut round thing that tasted nothing like a cookie, rather disappointing. Luckly thanks to Tony Horton (P90X guy) I found a great recipe for dessert! It's sweet, crunchy, soft, and it' only made of good stuff. I'll share it with the gang tonight!! Good good news, now that I've faced my habits, I'm making changes to relax more, get more sleep, and drink more water. I know my skin is doing much better because I'm wearing less and less makeup each day and I didn't feel tired when I woke up this morning. I can't wait to see the changes that take place this coming week!! Thanks everyone for your support, keep it coming!!
