Bec says “I meant to post this pic last night for flashback Friday but was running late! Went to an awards social night with my gym. Such a great fun evening with a super fit bunch of fun people!

Lots of laughs maybe a few more drinks than I’d planned but that was yesterday!

I feel like hot chips today but have stayed on track with Aussie Toast for a savoury hit, a pizza jaffle from the Challenge recipe hub for lunch and plenty of water. I’ll prob have a smoothie for dinner”.

Bec’s 12 tips for staying on track with weight loss when you have an evening event to attend

  1. Do a good workout in the morning
  2. Make great food choices during the day
  3. Drink your water intake 2-3 litres before you go
  4. Drink a glass of water between other drinks
  5. Opt for low alcohol options or half shots with soda water with lime
  6. Have a Healthy Mummy smoothie or a light meal before you go so you don’t overindulge because you are starving
  7. Make healthy/mindful choices
  8. Plan your splurge
  9. Enjoy your splurge
  10. Have a decent sleep after
  11. Do some active recovery the next day
  12. Get back into meal plan the next day and use the Challenge recipe hub to search for meals that satisfy any cravings

And most importantly Bec reminds us to remember The Healthy Mummy program is about sustainable lifestyle choices and celebrations and events are important.

How Bec’s life has changed since losing weight

She says “There are so many LITTLE things which are different since my 14 months with Healthy Mummy but these have made a HUGE impact on my life.

  • I can touch my toes and open lids on jars
  • My kids ask me for shoulder rides and piggybacks and my back and knees no longer ache
  • I can jump, hop and skip without peeing myself (most of the time)
  • No longer need a “double bra” to exercise
  • I have one chin in photos and I now take selfies 
  • My thighs don’t rub together in shorts and don’t make that “smacking” sound when I run
  • My hair is healthier, my skin is clearer and I wear less makeup
  • I wake up before my alarm
  • I own more activewear than other clothes
  • I can find my size on the sale racks and I now wear skinny jeans, g-strings and bikinis
  • I talk more kindly to myself
  • I dance more often and have more sex
  • I get down on the floor and play with my kids
  • My social network has expanded and I have more friends
  • My wedding band spins

…and the list goes on

“I have 4 kids and turn 40 in just 6 weeks and I’m bouncing around the gym each morning at 5.30am with a bunch of single guys and girls in their 20s who told me on Friday night (when this pic was taken) they have nicknamed me ‘fit mum Bec’ or ‘hot mum Bec’ bless – I’m taking that NSV into my 40s with a cheer!

But it’s how I feel on the inside and role I’m setting for my kids which I’m most proud of!.

If you want RESULTS, if you want more than just weight loss, if you want a community of support, family-friendly meal plans and exercises you can do at home or on the go – join the challenges, try the smoothies and see what you can do! You will not regret it!”.
