Some of Dani’s story

Dani says “three WEEKS between these photos. Before photos taken 30th December 2018, New photos were taken today.

While the scales have not been my friend this month, I currently have only lost just under 2kg, I am dropping cms!

It’s my first challenge that I have used The Healthy Mummy recipes so much, and I am loving the results I am already seeing.

I am actually looking forward to my final weigh in and measure next week for this challenge.

Bring on next month when the kids are back to school and there aren’t so many temptations and distractions!”

We can definitely see a difference Dani.  So keep up the good work!

Here are Dani’s 11 top tips to staying on track with your weight loss journey.

11 tips for staying on track with your weight loss journey

“1. If you are finding it difficult to find a whole hour to workout during the day then try to do a few quick workouts a day. You don’t have to do a full hours block, it all adds up.

2. Set your alarm for earlier than the kids wake up and do a quick morning workout in peace! It’s a great way to start the day.

3. Make a plan and stick to it! Set a time/day to exercise and just DO IT! Push yourself, NO EXCUSES!

4. Reward yourself on a regular basis for sticking to your plans/smashing your goals. Treat yourself to something you want to have or want to do.

5. Cheat meals occasionally are ok! You have to live! If you have a dinner out with friends/partner etc, just go and enjoy yourself! By not restricting yourself so heavily, then it’s sustainable. It’s a lifestyle change. You want to have fun!

6. If you have a dog… walk it! Your dog will love you, you will love it and walking is great exercise! We don’t do it enough, but if you have a Fitbit/health tracker use it. Try to do your steps. 10,000 steps a day is recommended. The average office worker does half that.

7. Make water your best friend. Our bodies need it, and it is essential for weight loss!

8. Every mistake or “fall of the wagon” is a learning curb. Don’t beat yourself up about it, it’s not a fail. Learn from it. Why did it happen? Was there a trigger? Try to work out how to not let it happen again.

9. Not a morning person? Lay out your workout clothes the night before or sleep in.

10. Try to get enough sleep, sleep is so important!

Tips for staying motivated

11. Never EVER give up! You can do this. Believe in yourself. Make yourself a priority. You deserve it.”

Such good advice Dani.  Thank you!
