-Week Four Timeline-
Sunday, January 17, 2016-Saturday, January 23, 2016

SUNDAY (1/17/16)
My Sunday started off sourly. My suspicions from the previous night that I would not lose any weight proved to be worse than I had imagined–I gained weight. My weight loss of 1.6 lbs from Week Two was completely ruined by Week Three’s weight gain of 1.5 lbs. I tried to stay upbeat, but I felt like a failure.

MONDAY (1/18/16)
Again I woke up feeling down. My plan to workout everyday of the week had not been put into action, and I wasn’t motivated. I barely made an effort to cook any meals, and was generally lazy. This parody I found of Adele’s “Hello” made me laugh, and perfectly described my feelings about dieting at the time.

“Krispy Kreme gives me liiiiifeee..”

TUESDAY (1/19/16)
I was starting to feel a little better this day, and I was feeling more encouraged to continue my diet. I endeavored to be more active and took the time to cook meals and clean my home. 

WEDNESDAY (1/20/16)
My heart was heavy on this day. A deep-seeded need to become pregnant again in the near future is one of the only things driving me to continue my low carb lifestyle. I am constantly thinking of babies, and the more time passes, the more anxious I become. I hope that my perseverance during these difficult weeks will help me continue to lose weight and realize my dreams of having more children someday soon.

THURSDAY (1/21/16)
I was unfortunately not feeling very well this day, and spent a lot of time resting. All of my attempts of cooking meals were fruitless, and I barely had an appetite. 

FRIDAY (1/22/16)
Today was a busy day. I had grocery shopping and errands to run, as well as bills to pay. I felt exhausted by days end, but I was at least feeling better. The only setback I had was dealing with body stiffness and a sore back.

SATURDAY (1/23/16)
I woke up early this morning in search of an outdoor moving sale I found out about online. The temperature has been staying around below freezing, but they had deals I just couldn’t pass up. I was able to score a set of almost new oak TV trays for only $4, along with about 50 chapter/story books for $7 for my daughter, whom loves reading. Upon returning home, my husband and I spontaneously decided to rearrange our living room. This took a majority of the day, and there is still plenty left over for me to finish later on.

CLOSING THOUGHTS:
This past week basically felt like a wash. Although I seemed to redeem myself halfway through, I was still feeling bloated and like I hadn’t made any progress. I have been trying to stay positive, and began drinking matcha tea again in hopes of accelerating my weight loss. I truly want to start an exercise regimen for the next week, and am hoping that I actually stick to that goal this time around.
