dropping-out-of-uni - pintsizedsoph

Christmas time last year, I decided to drop out of university and it was hands down the best decision I've made.

For those of you who've read my blog from the beginning, you'll know I was studying English at a university in London - and hated every second of it.

I knew pretty much within the first few weeks that the course was just not for me. Which, for me was strange. I'd always enjoyed Literature, and it was always the subject I excelled in. However, English at university was just not for me.

I dreaded my lectures, and slowly but surely my attendance dropped along with my mental health. I wrote a post about why I was dropping out for those of you interested - and to date, it's still my most read post. This is something I'm proud of.

For those of you who don’t follow me on Twitter, you probably won’t know I’ve been on a personal mission to shift some extra pounds.

I figured I would start documenting my progress, mainly for myself. But, it's also good to look at how far you've come sometimes, it's kinda feels like mini fist-bump to yourself and feeling really great about it.

But, I also think can shout about the fact I've lost nearly 2 stone, by making very small changes to my lifestyle.

YOUR SHOPPING BILL JUST BECAME HELLA EXPENSIVE

So this is an obvious one, but a biggie. Since switching my diet, and sifting through the free-from aisle I’ve noticed a steep increase in my weekly food bill. It's even more frustrating because it's the essentials that tend to be the most expensive. It was hard saying goodbye to Lidl own-brand 69p porridge pots, and hello to the £1.50 pots from Tesco... 

YOU DON'T JUST HAVE TO SHOP FROM THE FREE-FROM SECTION

Pasta sauces? Curry sauces? Soups? Don’t be tricked into thinking all you can buy is ‘gluten-free’ sauces, when in fact most supermarket products are naturally gluten free, bar the obvious. It just means you have to take a few extra minutes to read the labels. *yawn*
