The Last Day of the First Week

Monday morning.  One week down, two to go.

This weekend was hard, mostly because I couldn’t hold to the morning routine that I used during the workweek.  I tend to not eat breakfast on the weekends, habitually, and eat an early lunch instead.  This route does not work at all on a low-carb diet.  Coffee only and no breakfast made for an energy deficit that I just could not make up eating what I ended up eating.  My symptoms were lethargy, mild headache, aching muscles and joints, slight pain in the kidney area of my back.  Sunday I ate a breakfast of wheat and sugar free pancakes, or crepes with a fried egg.  This start was much better, dinner was kielbasa with fried cabbage, green peppers and onions.  Very good, filling and held me til morning.  This morning was another crepe with two eggs.  So far today I feel just about perfect.

Measurements are coming later on today, but I think I have both lost weight and girth.

I went to the store and got myself a bulk size package of foot long hot dogs to keep at work.  Quality hot dogs are really good to have on hand to battle cravings that arise when you have to get stuck at work until midnite.  That happens to me from time to time.
