Slimming World so far

I am on week 8 or 9 now of Slimming World. This is the longest i have lasted on a ‘diet.’ So far i have lost 9lb and have another 1 stone 1 lb to target. It’s coming off slowly, but i can’t stop my ‘treats’ completely and i feel this is what is holding me back losing more quicker, but i am happy, i am eating cake, eating meals out (not as often) but at the same time i am eating healthier. Meals from scratch, much more fruit and vegetables in my meals. I find myself going to the fruit bowl without thinking. I never knew how much i liked plums and raspberries until i started this.

I have started running this week (well walking/jogging, looking like a beetroot!) My legs are painful and takes me time to walk if i have sat down for a while. Would hate to see how i am walking! With this i am also doing some planks, crunches and squats when i remember and have time.

I fit myself into some jeans this week that i haven’t been able to fasten for the past 1/2years yahooo!

I am hopefully going to get the time to update my blog with some Slimming World meals we all enjoy eating, there are a fair few so far, and still have many more recipes to try!

Hello 2015, hello healthier me!

Not been posted in a while, we have had a December move, so has been a bit hectic.

Firstly Happy New Year everyone! Hope 2015 is a great year for you all.

So new year means another New Years resolution. I think most of mine have failed over the years, but this year i am going to stick with it!

I joined Slimming World on Wednesday, and learnt the scales aren’t that nice on your first visit! It was scary getting on the scales, but first time out the way and i will never be seeing that weight again or more hopefully!

I’m not doing too bad so far, day 2 and i am getting it, i think, quite well. First day i forgot my heb a & b and i keep forgetting that i need atleast 5 syns a day, as i am getting under that for the first 2 days.

Todays meals were yummy and nothing like being on a healthy eating plan. I struggled to go in the fridge and pick fruit over chocolate. We have a huge pile of chocolate still from Xmas and i have been resisting the chocolate for fruit, although i had some chocolate for my afters after tea today it was only 1 syn and tasted, so good!

Through my journey to getting healthy and toned i will be writing a few blog posts and you may see alot of pictures of my food and some recipes if you would like them.

So today this is what i have had for my meals:
20150108_123106[1] 20150108_181749[1] 20150108_185324[1]

Breakfast i had some fruit no photos for that. Dinner i had a fry up syn free using bread as heb b, with raspberries and muller light yoghurt. For tea i had SW mac n cheese (really tasty!) on top of lettuce with cucumber and homemade potato cubes. Dessert was strawberries and blueberries with some squirty chocolate which was 1 syn.

You can eat so much on Slimming World! Fingers crossed next Wednesday i get a loss!

Am i size 10 now??

I have been on the health kick a week, surely i should be a size 10?? I am so impatient with weight loss and toning. I should have a flat stomach by now too! I don’t have that or the size 10 figure. Infact i haven’t changed at all. I like things now, not one to gladly wait for things. This is my ultimate healthy lifestyle downfall, i fall off the wagon because i see no progress a week on, a hard week at that! I have swam twice since Monday and done the gym twice. I seem to be losing my brain this week too, maybe chocolate gives my brain a boost?

Tuesday i went swimming in the morning, the day before i had swam in the morning and done gym after tea. It helped in loosening up my muscles as i never felt the burn as much as normal if i had done that amount of exercise the day before. The only problem was, my brain was left in its wrapper when i woke up that day! Get to changing rooms, get undressed and unlock door, luckily before fully opening this i realise i am in my birth suit and have yet to put on my swimwear! Can you imagine the embarrassment! I finally get into the pool and start swimming, much harder than the day before, 10 lengths in i seem to be struggling to do anything, switching, from all sorts of different strokes during the lengths just to get me to the end of the length. There was a point i was doing back stroke and yep, i done the embarrassing thing of going into the stairs with my head. I stand up look around to see the life guard covering her mouth from laughing. How dare she laugh at me! Ok, ok so i would laugh too if it was someone else.. I carry on swimming as if nothing had happened, 30 minutes in and 29 lengths done, i gave up! It just wasn’t my day for swimming.

Done the gym last night, too busy laughing with friend to be able to do many of the arm weight lifting stuff. I can feel it on my stomach muscles though, so tomorrow i may wake with my 6 pack right?

So this is my journey so far, i WILL get there, but for now will give swimming a rest until next week when hopefully i will dodge the stairs and walking out in birth suit! Will try to get to gym again today and do better than last night!

Joined the gym *gulp*

So after saying numerous amounts of times that ‘I will lose weight this time and be good’ and failing badly. I decided gym membership it was! I couldn’t do it at home, it was too easy to think not today, will do it tomorrow. So 30 day shred is currently in the dvds holder for when i have got into this exercise lark.

I am no fan of exercise, i drive ALOT. Living in the middle of nowhere you would think i would do all the countryside walks, but that just isn’t me. I am a town girl at heart. I do walk the dogs though, but not in all the fields that you would do if living in countryside. Sometimes i do let the dogs take me when i can’t be bothered moving my feet i let them drag me along. Oh gosh am i lazy! Should i have admitted that laziness??

Induction is tomorrow, plan is to do induction and then have a 30 min or so workout. Membership includes swimming pool, so will be off swimming during day when Jess is in nursery and gym/classes on the evening.
I started heathy eating 2 days ago, now on day 3 and i am doing ok, but do wish i could just eat all the crisps i want and not gain weight. Why couldn’t i have the fast metabolism gene?

I WILL get fit/toned and healthy!!
