21DSD: Days 16 & 17

I've had a busy work week, and the longer hours have made it difficult to keep up with the blog.  More importantly though, I've stayed on track, and I also feel that, even with the heightened work stress, I've been coping with it pretty well - better than I would have in the past.  Could it be that this change in my diet is helping me to concentrate better, stay focused, and keep calm and even keel?  It could be indeed, given that a ride on the sugar roller coaster can make us feel irritable and anxious.  Not me, I'm chill, yo!  Well, maybe I'm feeling a little stressed, but for the most part, I'm feeling pretty good.

It's getting late, and I have to get into the office early again tomorrow for another jam packed day, so here's my recap for yesterday and today
