Healthy Lifestyle Change Week 4

Hello Blog World,

Week 3 was a bit of a disappointment, no weight lost and a few bad days. What will this week bring?

Only had one other entry in my linky party so the award for entering goes to Natascha from No Pain No Gain Tuesday, she lost 3.5 pounds last week, which is fantastic, I wonder how she goes this week.  Check it out tomorrow for her latest update!

I am putting the party up again so please, please, please people I need recipes, exercise tips, stories, motivation, basically anything goes!!

Firstly my motivation for this week!

It was a great day, Kel sold lots and I sold 4 cards! But unfortunately it didn’t leave time for anything else.

It was also very hot today over 35 degrees Celsius so I gave in and bought an ice cold can of normal lemonade
By the time I got home I was starving, so I had spread out over the afternoon 6 pieces of toast with butter and vegemite!! (this constituted my dinner)
I also dozed on and off all afternoon as I had a killer headache from the heat and lack of sleep, therefore no exercise

Ok so I am a little embarrassed by this week, after having 3 really good weeks, I have seemed to slackened off a little, it’s a bit disappointing, but I still got on the scales this morning and low and behold I had lost 1/2 kg (which is over 1 pound)!  So it’s better than nothing and does show even with a bad week I can still have some positives, so to anyone out there reading this (this includes you Natascha) don’t be discouraged by a bad week. Look at the positives!!!
Anyway Check out my link party below, it’s another scorcher here today and I have to prepare for my trip to Melbourne later in the week so until then Happy Healthy Crafting.

Eh, you have nothing to be embarrassed about. You are only human and bound to slip up every once in a while (didn't you tell me that last week?). And you STILL managed to lose weight! I'm glad you aren't discouraged...we can do this!!!
