Slim Fast Challenge

Slim Fast Challenge: 3-2-1 Plan. Hello friends, so how are you today? I was really pleased when Slim Fast picked me as one of the bloggers to take part in to take their #SlimFastChallenge. Go me!

So earlier this week I was sent a box full of yummy Slim Fast products including- milkshakes, meal replacement bars and some tasty sweet and savoury snacks to try out. Enough treats for over 2 weeks.

I will follow their 3-2-1 plan trying to see how much weight I can lose. Only one thing I need: Will Power To Succeed!!

Slim Fast Challenge: 3-2-1 Plan:

Slim Fast Challenge. Out of all the diets I have tried over the years Slim Fast is probably my favourite. I love my treats and milkshakes too much to succeed on usual diets.

So I am hoping I can do well with this time! Also, I adore the taste of the Slim Fast milkshakes, the Vanilla, and Caramel are my favourites flavours, they are so yummy.

Since Christmas I have slowly put weight on! 

The scales are my enemy. Every month a few more pounds on. To my horror as I weighed myself the night before the challenge I realised I have gained nearly 14lb in weight in 5 months. Going from 133lb to 146.80lb. Arrrr… Something needs to be done!!

I know why I have been gaining the weight.

Also, I finished my membership at the gym. I had been trying to get more running in. Then almost immediately after doing more running took a fall in the woods!

I have also damaged my hip (indeed it is still sore). The fall may have knocked my hip out of line ?! I am back up to 2 miles again now, but may be limping.

The trouble is I love food and I eat the same amount of food without doing the exercise. This is how I am gaining the weight.

To succeed at any diet I need to make small changes and think of how I am going to achieve them to reach my goals. Cutting down on food, more exercise and drinking more water is a good start.

3-2-1 Diet:

The slim Fast 3-2-1 is such a simple and so easy diet to follow:

  • Firstly, 3 snacks a day ~ fruit or any of the slim fast treats.
  • Secondly, 2 meal bars or milkshakes a day
  • Thirdly, 1 healthy meal around 600 calories for women 800 for men.

I started my diet yesterday and day one complete. OK. I am looking forward to making new changes one day at a time. Rome was not built in a day! I found it hard to start with, feeling hungry and it is hard for me to to keep away from my habit of biting and bobbing.

Once I get my head around this and grab a glass of water or go for a walk instead I will be fine!?! One thing I already look forward to is a nice cold milkshake for breakfast. So what do you think?

2 Weeks Challenge Results:

2 Weeks Slim Fast Challenge Results. I got out of bed on Saturday, grabbed a cup of coffee and a slice of toast, and headed to Parkrun. This was my first 5-kilometer run in months. (I fell over while running and it took months for me to recover.)After that, I went home and quickly made my recovery breakfast. Slim-Fast Shake with caramel. I recalled and shouted: “eek this is weigh in day” while I was sipping it. So, a hasty rush to the truth scales!! I reached for the scales with trepidation. Have I shed several pounds? remained unaltered? or, much worse, gain some weight? First, I checked my book for my beginning weight of 146.80 lb, and then I got on the scales. 2 Weeks Slim Fast Challenge Results.
