Week one – Done!!!
It wasn’t so bad at work. I didn’t crave anything like chocolate. I did crave cottage cheese and tomatoes one day. But the good news was that I could have them for lunch.
So most mornings – Don would make egg substitute with turkey bacon or real egg omelet with green onions and mushrooms. Lunch was usually tuna and hummus, but one day I had the cottage cheese and tomatoes with my tuna. Dinners were interesting because I was in charge of making sure we had everything to make the food. So one night I was prepared for turkey meat balls – but forgot to get some of the ingredients. The cook wasn’t happy. Then another night I was expecting stuffed peppers, but only had a few of those ingredients too. So the cook has fired me from making dinners. I can still get my lunch food – but no more coming up with evening menu. So last night we had roasted chicken with spinach and brussels sprouts.
So what have I accomplished in this week. Foremost I have accomplished a well being. I feel really great. I have so much energy and feel human again. I actually think my skin is looking better too.
So here on Saturday morning – one week into this program. 1) Feel Better 2) Blood sugars are average 113-134 in morning 3) No Bloating 4) Lost a few pounds. 5) More Energy.
So I believe this is a good path I am on. So today will be the test – because we are going to a Wine and Food Festival. Good news again – I can have a few glasses of wine. I will probably have more then I am allowed, but I will be walking around a great deal. So wish me luck on today… and I’ll post results tomorrow.
