Slimpod Week #3

Wednesday 15 May 2013

I have been SO busy the past week it is unbelievable. If you know me then you'll know I hate being rushed off of my feet, and not having time to sit down and just think about life and chill out. Anyway, I didn't write a week #2 post for Slimpod due to having to finish all of my University assignments, I am also aware that this one is late, but hey, better late than never!

Anyway, Sandra (the founder of Slimpod) actually reminded me that I didn't write my goals down on the blog. When you start Slimpod you are supposed to set three attainable goals, and although I did, I didn't realise that I hadn't actually shared them so here they are:

  1. Lose an inch off of all my measurements by my graduation (12th July 2013)
  2. Continue to listen to my Slimpod every day
  3. Begin to exercise 
So all these three goals may seem pretty easy to a lot of you reading this, but it is very hard for me to maintain a healthy lifestyle, I tend to give up easily, so I simply have to start small!

So I have gone beyond my 21 days of listening to Slimpod and I am actually pretty happy with how it is going. I'll admit last week I had a bit of an unhealthy week, I was eating out a lot, and drinking most nights, but it was my last week at university, so I wanted to have fun and not have to think about my weight. So what changes have I noticed since the last time I blogged?
  1. I'm still rarely properly hungry, although I still find myself eating at regular intervals, I never really feel hungry like I used to.
  2. I find it hard to finish a plate of food. This one was frustrating me last week! Particularly when I went out for my last meal with my University friends, I could barely eat my main course. I left most of it on the plate. In fact last week I found that if I tried to force myself to finish a plate I would feel horribly sick for a while after. So now instead of fighting it, I have only been eating what I feel I can fit in my stomach, if I leave something on the plate, I'm not so bothered about it anymore.
  3. I've been wanting to do exercise. Although the past week I have found no time to fit in some exercise, due to the constant packing, and assignments, and then interviews earlier this week. Today I finally went on a run with my sister, it was hard! I had to switch between running and walking, as I couldn't cope. However, as I'm sitting here writing this I feel happy that I went out and exercised! We are planning to do it every day, so I'm hoping by this time next month, I'll be able to run with a lot less walking breaks!
So there you have it! Those are the changes that I have noticed in week 2/3 of my Slimpod journey. I am still listening to my Slimpod every day, but I have switched to listening to it when I wake up in the morning, so that I don't wake my sister when I go to bed. Overall I'm pretty happy with how my journey is going, although I'm pretty sure I haven't lost any weight yet, I know my journey to a healthier lifestyle is just beginning and the weight-loss will come after these changes become more prominent in my life!

I'll make sure that I measure myself next week to see if there have been any changes, we'll have to wait and see if I make any progress.
