One Week In

<= Before Starting                                                                                    Week Two Update=>

Its been a week since I started listing to slimpod every night and bucked down to my task of loosing 100lb. If you missed the first post, you can get to it by clicking here.

I always notice at the start of any change I'm really into it then a few weeks later I slip and have no more interest.
So for that its a little to early to say whether or not the slimpods working. So until then I'm on the fence to whether or not it truly works and you guys will be the first to know.

However I will tell you what I do know and what iv been up too.

I'm down 3lb and though we are not meant to measure ourselves I always find it motivating. Its something I love doing just like the monthly image. These habits are here to stay.
Iv taken the time to get out and about walking, taking full force of my fitbit and the challenges. I'm loving the competitive element as it really makes me want to get out there and move (or run about the house just so I hit 20k steps as was 1k away!). So far in the last 7 days iv covered 75,000+ steps so hitting above the national average which is fantastic. 
 

Iv also been doing some yoga and dusting off my wii fit. I'm now also the proud owner of a gym membership to one that's opening near me in the coming months. I'm determined to make this exercise habit stick and not slip back to how they were.  

I find myself reaching for fruit and making heather choices but with weight loss in mind this is happens every time I re-boot my eating habits. My tooth is also still niggling me a little so iv not been chomping food down like I used to anyway.


Since I'm writing Id like to clear something up which did slightly irritate me. 
I know 100% that weight loss is calories in vs calories out. I didn't by any chance thing I could actually loose weight by sitting on my arse watching TV. I don't believe in fad diets and don't even get me started on those juice plus 'miracles'. Hard work creates the body you want, but all abs are made in the kitchen. It doesn't mater how much you exercise if you eat 3 big macs a day. Slimpod focuses on changing your mental habits and improving your relationship with food which is what I struggle with.
I also know that I'm not on a diet. I can eat anything I want, I can do anything I want. I sometimes use diet too loosely when I mean lifestyle changes. No point in making quick fixes to spring back +8lb.

Now that's out the way I can breath again and go back to my Wii fit. Maybe Ill try some dance videos instead

How do you like to work out. Let me know down below.

    1. I do think that food re-trainning can only go so far. Putting the Weightloss so far down to exercise.

  7. Congratulations on the weight loss and the positive attitude! :) I love my Fitbit too and I aim for a 20,000 step count each day. I too love the challenges! :) My favourite exercises are the P90X3 ones - half hour intensive workouts I can do in the comfort of my own living room every day. I lost 2 stone with the original program this time last year.

  19. I try to go the gym for around 2 hours on most days but you're completely right about abs being made in the kitchen. I still struggle to eat balanced meals and am prone to bingeing every few days which ruins any progress that has been made. Best of luck with your challenge, you seem to be doing well so far :)
