I've teamed up with Slim Fast to do the #SlimFastChallenge for the next 14 days. I've tried Slim Fast before and it worked, but I only had a few snacks and some different flavour shakes, never the whole shabang. Anyway I'm going to track my progress and on day 14 I'll be letting you know how I got on.

The Challenge

I have to complete the plan outlined by Slim Fast which consists of 3 snacks a day, 2 meal replacement products a day and 1 balanced meal a day. It seems daunting and the original image is totally to do with the shakes but there is more food than you think here! I decided to have my balanced meal in the evening. I cook for myself and my boyfriend most of the time, often spending a few hours making things from scratch so I didn't want to miss out on that.

The products

I received the following:
Simply Vanilla Shake Powder. Just add 250ml of skimmed milk and you're done!
Pre-mixed Shakes in Rich Chocolate, Simply Vanilla and Summer Strawberry.
Meal Replacement Bars in Chocolate Crunch, Summer Berry and Chocolate Peanut.
Snacks (Savoury) in Sour Cream & Chive Pretzels, Cheddar Flavour Bites and BBQ Tortillas.
Snacks (Sweet) in Chocolate Caramel Treat, Heavenly Chocolate Delight and Chocolate Nutty Nougat.

I envy those with the full sized Rich Chocolate Powder as from previous times using it, it tastes like chocolate cake mix! 

I am strong willed so although I will most likely crave snacks in the evening, I am determined to do this. I've taken note of my weight and measurements and I joined the gym today! My goal is to lose weight over the whole summer, but with most weight loss programmes a lot of your weight comes off in the first month or so. Fingers crossed that in two weeks we will see some results! I want to be fit and healthy for my future; my graduation, holidays etc so I hope this is the right way to start off.
