Cut back a bit on the carbs since you won't be lifting, just that should be fine it's only a week.

I like to have one eat whatever i want meal per week...during this time maybe two. During this time I also do not like to visit bodybuilding boards as I take break from all things bodybuilding if I can help it ..then when I come back I am fresh mentally, physically, emotionally.
when you are getting sick of going to the gym, numbers are going down,joints ache, feel run down it is time to take a break and I like to schedule them sooner than later anyways for mental recuperationFollow me on facebook, twitter and youtube, where I share information and videos to help you achieve your physique goals, John Smeton Ftness

High stress = no gains, usually. Depending on your anxiety level usually. Stress kills not only your drive, but your immunosupression system as well. When you are stressed out it's time to take a break. Taking a break is generally a great thing, even though it feels like you are failing at your goal (but hopefully passing in grades!). Your body will bounce back quite quick.
I would def decrease the carbs and even the protein shakes. You will get enough from a good natural diet.
