Slimming World Update.

Hola friends, I'm going to try and keep this short and sweet seeing as this post was supposed to come out yesterday but instead Friday's post came out in place of this one. I'm bad with schedules. Anywho, here's a quick Slimming World update for you all.

Firstly, my weigh-in on Friday was quite an eye opener. I didn't think I'd done anything to lose weight over the week and expected another gain, or at best, to maintain but to my very pleasant surprise, I'd dropped 0.5kg! I didn't think the result was right at all so weighed myself multiple times. I even took a photo of the result and sent it to Jordan at work because I couldn't believe it. The only conclusion I could draw was that the weather was responsible for my weight loss. With it being so much warmer, I've been guzzling down more water and sweating more. I can only assume what I lost was a bunch of water weight. I'm still counting it as a win though, water weight or not.

Also, I achieved my silver Body Magic award which is 90 minutes of exercise a week, spread out over at least 3 day, for 4 consecutive weeks. Getting my silver award was a teeny motivation booster and I've started working towards getting the gold award (150 mins a week, spread over at least 5 days for 8 consecutive weeks). This means that I've decided to renew my Slimming World membership at the end of the first 12 weeks. I like having this little goal to work towards. I know its just a logo on a screen but as anyone who's ever played World of Warcraft with me will tell you, I'm an achievement whore. I have to get the achievement no matter how pointless it might seem. They make me feel good and accomplished for a brief period of time. Working towards completing an achievement is usually the most focused and motivated I get. So the Slimming World membership is staying in my life for a couple months more. Here's hoping for another good result this week as well.

Until next time,
Alli xo
