Week One... I survived!

Yes, it's true... I'm still alive.  Even after going Yeast Free for a week!  :)
I'm happy to report that it's actually been a pretty great week overall!

Monday & Tuesday were hard because I had a constant head ache.  I guess that was just my body adjusting to not having any sugar.

Wednesday was good but, just sort of a blah day - don't think it was really diet related.  Just one of those days, ya know?

Thursday & Friday so far has been great!

Meal planning is DEFINITELY something that you have to do if you're going to do YF.  Really, I think it's important for anyone trying to keep up a healthy eating plan.  It's just too easy to "not have enough time" to cook, prepare, whatever & just grab something in the drive-thru at McDonald's.

This week turned out to be a little hectic & although I had a meal plan in place, I caught myself a little unprepared a couple of times.  Thankfully, I took Stephanie's advice and grabbed a couple extra cans of Amy's Black Bean Chili to have on hand for just in case.

This week's meals consisted of....

Scrambled Eggs for breakfast.

Pork Chops, Grilled chicken with veggies, Amy's Black Bean Chili... all things that were for dinner & left over for lunch.  We also went to Chipotle one night & I got the YF bowl... double black beans & steak - I added salsa once I got home.  Surprisingly, it was pretty good!

Last night Matt threw together this YF Chicken Tortilla Soup... Oh. Ma. Goodness!  To. Die. For!!!

It's so crazy because my cravings are virtually GONE!  I saw Kristen & Tess mention this when they first started YF a few weeks ago & I couldn't really imagine not craving fried chicken or sweets or anything of the sort.  BUT, I'm here to say that I seriously do not have any cravings.  I even tested it out... looking at billboards & hearing commercials on the radio... never craved a McD's burrito, Chik-Fil-A nuggets or anything!  NOTHING!  SO WEIRD!!!

Now for the goods!  Monday morning before I ate or drank anything I weighed myself...

A whopping 138.... pushing 139!!!

This morning I weighed myself before eating or drinking & I weighed in at...


I fully believe that this was because of the YF diet I've been practicing & the workouts that I've been putting in this week!  My goal for next Friday is to be in the 120's!!!  & This little gem is my inspiration!
Isn't it cute!?  Came in the mail this week & I LOVE it!!!  You can find it at Gipsy Bridge.
Oh & of course that one very special white dress I'll be wearing May 4th!  In 85 days but, who's really counting right!?

Have you had success with a new diet/lifestyle that you've recently started??

I hope y'all have a great weekend!!!
