15 fitness tips FROM 5 MUMS to help you finish the month off with a BANG!

Cicily Goodwin

Cicily has lost an incredible 42 kilograms since following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge. To help you push through the final week on the August Challenge Cicily suggests:

1. Keep pushing: You will thank yourself if you push through.

2.Change it up: Try some new recipes on the Challenge or a different Smoothie concoction! Get some excitement into your food.

3.Get back on the wagon: Did you go off track? GET BACK UP! One meal or one day does not change the efforts of this month. I love to have a sneaky meal mid Challenge – that’s FINE! But now you need to re-find that focus the next day and smash it out of the park.

Jacoby Cash

Inspiring Jacoby Cash has lost 18.8kgs* on the 28 Day Weight Loss ChallengeWhen it comes to SMASHING the final week of the August Challenge Jacoby suggests:

1.Protein, protein, protein: Keep up a decent amount of protein at every meal. You’ll be fuller for longer and won’t grab for chocolate at the 3pm slump.

2. Water – drink it ladies: It’s liquid gold. It helps to flush toxins out of your system and BOOSTS your metabolism.

3. Move your body: Exercise! Move your body. Even if you don’t feel like it, once you get going you’ll be so glad you did.

Lauren Da Silva

Lauren has been following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge for two years now. She initially lost 15kgs in six months and has since been maintaining this weight loss. Her top three tips to help YOU finish the August 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge with a BANG are:

1.Keep it fun: Working out and keeping fit doesn’t have to be done in a gym or outside the house. You can do it in your lounge room and get the kids to join in too! If you still haven’t tried DanceFit or Tabata, then now is the time! You can find these exercises extensions on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge App, under the exercise tab.

2. Step outside your comfort zone: I’m sure you’ve found a few favourite meals by now and are probably repeating it a lot. Try something new! A new fruit, a new vegetable, something you would never normally eat.

3. Make mini goals: Make sure you have small, attainable goals along the way instead of only focusing on your end goal. You must be proud every every step you take on this journey.
