Quitting Slimming World ASAP

So I thought I would join Slimming World. Maybe I was coerced into this. Or maybe perhaps it was the groups I have been added to one which has me as admin that got me so in awe of others’ success stories.

Anyway what could I lose. Oh yeah I could lose some pounds. Well I joined a group ten minutes walk away from home. My 1st group meeting becamey last. You see I had been at work all day not eaten and as the man who is indeed the husband was heading out the lids came too.

Most participants who had kids got weighed and left. I should have taken note. My kids were given stuff to play with books colours and I remember them asking for the meeting fruit display.

Anyway the group leader was very friendly. He explained all to us newbies. We sat down listened to the successes failures and inbetweens. I actually picked up a few tips here. Despite husband cooking often it was still do-able.

The scales don’t lie. I have work to do and this diet seems unrestrictive but with restrictions. A type of duality. The book is thorough enough to get you going. You can speed up your weightloss with Speed foods and Protein.

Anyway this 1st meeting took 2hours to complete. I was hungry feeling famished and my kids suddenly wanted to eat fruit. We have fruit at home all the time. So based on that it just was not going to be practical to attend meetings.

I called HQ and asked to be switched to the online plan. My wish was granted. I am taking this month which ends in 1 week to learn best practices and then continue on my own.

I am actually wanting to look more into clean  eating. My fitness trainer friend said all I need to do is excercise and eat healthily. But as you know I have been trying.

The goal to fitness and improved health continues.

The Struggle is Real

I am praying that one day I will wake up to miraculous weight loss. My friend wants me to join Slimming World. But as the husband does a lot of cooking and he uses oil a lot such a commitment would not work.

In so much I am going to plan some recipes for days when I cook but also get back to exercising. I bought a bike this summer and me and the boys spent the summer going on bike rides. It has been so much fun. I have been told of a indoor bike adaptor so I can use my bike in my home as a stationary bike. Sounds like a win to me.

I now have two smoothie makers. I took advantage of a groupon deal and bought one that allows me to only make one portion. It has also proven a success with the kids but has become a milkshake haven.

So going forward I will make use of MyFitness Pal app. I am “SoFitandLush” on there please follow me. I will get hold of some slimming world books and I will also utilise some elements of clean eating. Now just to believe in myself.

Below is my video of my smoothie maker.

So, I am moving forward with this healthier lifestyle. After being dismayed by my weight gain I have not given up. I decided to follow the smoothie trend. I bought myself the Ninja Master Prep for £24.99 from B&M. They had another model that was £10 more but I decided that as they both say they do the same thing why spend more. I am new to this after all.

I have asked friends and family for recipes and my cousin shared with me a website called http://simplegreensmoothies.com they have a selection of recipes and some are kid friendly too. I will be trying my own version of their beginners luck smoothie. I say my own version as I do not have all the ingredients but will make do with what I have.

So if you make smoothies or can suggest a smoothie or juicing recipe let me know. I am hoping this becomes the norm for me.
