I CAN & I WILL.... week one

Week one Recap:

Since my appointment with the Dr. last week, I've decided to change my Lifestyle as soon as I walked out the door. When it comes to dieting  eating healthy it's not as hard for me as long as I can keep motivated. I don't mind eating the healthy food and can definately eat salads and vegetables everyday without getting bored, and once someone KICKS my butt into gear after the first week I can keep my routine to the gym. My weakness are SWEETS!!!! I'd give up my plate of food for a piece of cake anyday and it's probably why I'm hear today. Good thing my Honey is a health freak and gave me a game plan.
 As many people, I always skipped breakfast and tried to survive on a cup o' joe, and never thought of the importance of breakfast and snacking. So I tried it this week and I have to say, I'm no longer in starvation mode come lunch time which helps me not overeat. I feel full all day and my portions have become smaller. So in order to keep me accountable, I purchased snacks that I can leave at work and I've also set ongoing alerts on my phone to remind me that it's time for a snack or a meal.
This is what I've eaten this week.
