Day 1-Atkins-July 1

Monday, July 01, 2013

I did it! I needed some eggs, so I went to the grocery store. Why do they put the eggs waaaay in the back past all the breads, cookies and (gulp) cereal! I stood in the cereal isle...(my carbenemy) must have been at least three or four minutes. Paced up and down the isle a few times...but I escaped with only my eggs. I was still thinking about the boxed goodies I left in that isle as I drove out of the parking lot. This was a big step and now I know I can keep it up!
Day 1, so far so good! A bit low on energy, but I had the day off work and was able to take a short afternoon nap. I am not hungry at all though.
I'm not sure if anyone tried the yellow squash frittata!? I made it with feta cheese and it was awesome! I can see this being a weekly menu item!
On my weekly goal: to eat consciously...I did well. I caught myself at lunch eating while standing...but made my way to the table and sat down to enjoy sauteed shrimp and avocado salad. Yum!

    Hang in there. If you feel headachey or really fatigued you might be low on salt. You can try a little bit of broth to get your electrolytes back in balance.

    Well done - I read somewhere that the better foods are kept around the edge of a supermarket, so try and go around - or if not, simply plan your route up the veggie aisle. I keep running out of eggs too, but luckily I live in the country and there are a lot of roadside places that sell home-laid eggs, saving me a trip to the tempting shops!

I'll friend you if I may and keep up the encouragement!
