***another bad day.  I felt terrible, I was board with my food, I was tired, I took a nap and also went to bed early.  I'm trying to sleep it off!

Well that rounds up week two.  You can see this week was bit harder to come up with "new" foods.  I got a little less creative and because of that,  I started to get board with my meals.  I was also really tired this week.  I don't know if it was the food or just my life with three kiddos (still nursing one).  I definetely hit the "break it or make it" stage but so far I'm MAKING IT!!!  Woot Woot!  I don't feel as "thin" as a did last week.  Last week it felt like the weight was just melting off, this week, I feel like I gained.  I'm working my way through the book as I do this and that seems pretty common so no need to panic.  Since I usually weigh myself everyday, I've found the freedom from the scale has been a bit liberating (you weight on day 1 and not again till day 31).    

My sugar dragon is under control, I can't believe it!  I passed on donuts, cookies, and cake all of which were offered to be throughout the week.  I didn't even have an urge to eat those items.  Amazing!  I would have taken bets before this started that that NEVER would have been the case for me!

As you can see, I've falling a bit behind in posting my food.  LIFE just doesn't stop!  I got high hopes to get my next post up in a couple days!  If you want to see my week 1 meals with pictures and links to recipes go here:  Week 1.
