    Day 4, week 1

    Breakfast- diet shake, banana

    Lunch-1 egg, mushrooms, tomato on wholemeal toast with avocado

    Snack- 4 Belvita oat biscuits- found these in the back of my cupboard from ages ago- they really sustained and filled me up, I was so surprised!

    Dinner- homemade vegetable soup with cabbage, spinach, capsicum, mushrooms, tomato, celery and onion.
    Also had four little pork meatballs that I made for the kids dinner. Had to try them, of course!

    Snack #2- apple.

    Exercise- well the fact that I stood in the kitchen over a hot stove making 3 separate meals whilst cleaning the kitchen (DH had his "fake" chicken tonight, bugger) in 35 degree heat for close on 6 hours, I may have lost a kilo in sweat alone hahaha...

    Tomorrow will be a mild 24, will definitely go for a long walk with DD in the pram.

    I have now made exercising a priority; before yesterday, it kept falling to the bottom of my list and by the end of the day I hadn't seemed to have fit it in. But it's the first thing I'm doing after breakfast now, regardless.

    Today so far:

    Breakfast- diet shake

    exercise- 40 minute fast paced walk (I plan on going again tonight if it cools down)

    snack- 4 Belvita oat biscuits, small serve yoghurt

    Lunch- small piece of grilled lamb steak, 1 slice wholemeal bread, a little grated cheese

    Will be back to update dinner, which i think will be the last of my vegie soup- it has taken over my fridge and freezer, made waaay too much!

    *not to self- make smaller batch of vegie soup next time, lol

    I'm thinking that this change in my diet is making me exhausted and really zapping my energy levels... I could barely keep my eyes open this afternoon and actually slept with DD for an hour and a half- which I never do, never nap during the day and if I didn't have to get up I could have easily slept the day away.

    Loving this change in the weather here in Melb, now just willing the rain to stay away until MKR starts lol.. that way I can hopefully fit in another walk before I settle in to watch it

    Didn't get around to my evening walk because of the weather! Not to worry, will make up for it tomorrow.
    Dinner- 1 piece wholemeal toast topped with baked beans and cottage cheese.

    Week 2 Day 1:

    Ok, time to get serious! Week one I had some ups and downs but I think I'll consider it my "practice" week and now that I have found my niche so to speak I'm alot more confident in succeeding.

    Today so far:

    Breakfast- diet shake, half a banana (shared with DD )

    Lunch- vegie soup

    snack- 2 cruskits topped with cottage cheese.

    Arvo tea- wholemeal sandwich with lettuce, tuna and a little grated cheese

    exercise, my usual speedy walk with DD in her pram. Will definitely start using my exercise bike this weekend as well.

    Looks like you are doing really well! It's great to make exercise a priority - I do, it comes before housework for me. It gets easier when it's a habit and part of your normal routine. I can really feel the difference now if I skip a few days, I get so cranky.

    That's exactly what I have discovered- if I don't do it straight after breakfast it gets pushed back and wont happen. It already feels like routine now

    I weighed myself today and I'm one kilo down
