Happy Sunday friends, how are you doing?
I do hope your slimming efforts are going well. Well, better than mine anyway. You may have read last week that I was in a quandary as to what to do - do I still stay with Slimming World and attend class each week or would something else work better for me? I wasn't sure but I knew I definitely need to stay focused on being more healthy and losing some weight.
So I've spent the week in thought and prayer, coming to the conclusion that I am going to step away from attending my Slimming World class at the moment as the timings don't really work for me but what I'll do instead is attend a weekly exercise class where I can also weigh-in.
I used to go to this class and I know the instructor and many of the people who attend and also (wonderfully) it is run in the grounds of my home, so you can't get much more convenient than that. I only stopped going as it is on the same night as the course I've been doing at church but that is now coming to an end and I pray the content of it and the personal exploration and reflection that I have been doing as a result of it will result in me being able to really get my teeth into this healthy eating lark and make some changes for life.
So the plan right now is to stay mindful of what I am eating over the next couple of weeks and then to rejoin my exercise class (we tend to call it Fit Club) on Monday 10th April and I'll be accountable on here with how my weight is going and set some new goals.
My family is off on holiday today for the week. We are having a couple of days in Weston-Super-Mare and visiting Wookey Hole and then heading on to Minehead for Spring Harvest, which is a big Christian festival that I love. We are half-board with Butlins during this time and I'm aiming to make healthy choices and have good variety, not just chips every day!
This means I won't be around on Sunday 9th April so Emma (Mrs Shilts) will be hosting alone that week. So link up over on her blog next week please.
Wishing you an excellent week ahead and I look forward to hearing how you are doing. Mich x
