How'd I do?

Not too bad! As I stated previously, my biggest challenge will be not drinking coffee. I broke down and had a cup this morning. I did decrease the amount of sugar that I put in it, but I just couldn't pass it up. Anywho, I was good the remainder of the day.

I never let myself get hungry. I ate a little bit of something every few hours. Luckily I have the type of job that I can do that. I recognize that everyone doesn't have that luxury. I'm thankful that I can eat as needed at my desk.

So, back to my day, I balanced my eating out and I wasn't hungry or missed the idea of eating meat or items with refined sugar. For dinner tonight I did have meat, since I can after 6 pm and I didn't actually eat until after 7 pm. I had smother okra with shrimp served over rice.

I was quite consistent with drinking water. Oh gosh, almost too much! It seemed I was in the bathroom ever 45 minutes.

My food items are ready for Tuesday already. Generally, I prepare my food items for the next day as soon as I get home from work. If I don't, then I stay up too late. Getting it done immediately gives me more time to relax and do much of nothing later in the evening.

I fell off the "no coffee" wagon yesterday... Sunday and Monday when I abstained from coffee, I got near migraine headaches. I was miserable, so I had just one cup yesterday and was fine. Same today. Instead of quitting cold turkey, I'm going to do it gradually, by working some decaf in and then eventually no coffee.

Vegwife - I'm definitely going to have gradually go off the coffee. It is too much apart of my morning routine, and I *really* like the taste of coffee!
