Healthy Lifestyle Challenge Week 3

Hello Blog World,

Week 2 was a lot easier than I thought, not to say there weren’t hard or tempting moments but I resisted and am feeling great and have even shed a few kilos to boot! Bring on week 3!!!!!!

I had a few entries this week for my link party and there are 2 fab recipes that I definitely want to try.

Check out
KB & Whitesnake’s Home – Salmon with Dill Buttery Sauce
and
Organised Living Solutions – Healthy Treats
and don’t forget
No Pain No Gain Tuesday from Natascha’s Blog – she has finished week 4 of her challenge and will post week 5 tomorrow, can’t wait to see what she’s accomplished.

Now to some motivational material before letting you in on my week!

So a few more lows than last week!!! I still haven’t measured myself (must do that this week).  I had my weigh in this morning and I haven’t lost any more weight, but all in all I have lost 5 kg’s since I started so I will not get discouraged by this!  This week will be good, I have a lot going on, advanced excel course today, midnight screening of twilight on Thursday night, Friday off work to help Kel with the markets and then the market's on Saturday.  Wont leave much time for crafting but there is always next week.

I have posted my link party again this week.  I had a total of 4 entries (one was mine so it doesn’t count really. So link up obviously I need the help!  Until then Happy Healthy Crafting.

Michelle, you had another awesome week! I'm glad you aren't discouraged by the fact that you didn't lose any weight this week (you lost a heck of a lot of weight during the first two weeks so it is inevitable that this would happen--plus you are probably gaining a lot of muscle from all that working out). That picture of you in your wedding dress is FANTASTIC. Not only do you look great but I just dig the style of it in general :-) Keep up the good work!

Thanks for linking up to Serenity Saturday.
Hope to see you there again tomorrow
