    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

    Week 2, day 2:

    Well just did a big grocery shop and stoked up on heaps of healthy goodies. Feeling great today. I weighed myself again this morning and I could actually be 2 kilo's down by the looks of things- although I don't trust my scale! I will weigh myself tomorrow morning and see what it says.

    Today:

    Breakfast- bowl Special K with full milk (ran out of light) and sliced banana

    Lunch- a wholemeal English muffin topped with cottage cheese and approx half tin baked beans.

    So far, so good

    update, Dinner:

    Salt n pepper crumbed Sole fish fillet with mash potato and salad. Yarm!

    Today started off great- a bowl of cereal for breakfast (uncle Toby's Plus) and a good session on the bike. But then I went out visiting family- first stop was dad's and as soon as I saw the spread he put out for nibbles I knew that I'd be making Sundays my "relax day". Not saying I planned to gorge, lol, but just allow myself to relax and have a bloody crisp if I wanted it! And I did. But not many at all, actually. Had a single piece of yummy babybel cheese (oh cheese, how I've missed you!) a handful of potato chips and a few water crackers. Not so bad. I only drank water.
    Next was mum's house- why does my mother have to be such a good cook and have such tasty snacks on offer? Had some dip and rice crackers. I love dip, I could probably eat a whole pack in one sitting if I wanted! But thankfully I didn't haha.
    Dinner she cooked for me was probably not ideal diet wise; chicken drummets, yummy delicious cheesy potato bake with bacon and onions , aaaand a salad!

    I look at it this way- I've eaten like a saint all week, pretty much totally eliminating all processed food/sugar/junk and bad carbs, controlled my portion size and lost 2 kilos. I'm not eating mum's dinners everyday and will continue with what I have been doing all week tomorrow. I allowed myself a worry free day, enjoyed good food and great company. I don't feel bad
