Keeping your energy levels up while losing weight is one of the most IMPORTANT factors to achieve long term success!
At The Healthy Mummy, we are all about losing weight in a healthy and SUSTAINABLE way.
Jade Gardiner – who has lost 25kg in seven months after joining The Healthy Mummy’s 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge – reveals how she keeps her energy levels up while on her weight loss journey.
Jade says she felt tired and lethargic before she joined the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge in January 2017.
“I had no energy, and I often felt tired and lethargic, even thought I wasn’t doing anything,” she says.
“Now I’ve joined the Challenge and have taken control of what I eat and exercise every day, I feel more awake than ever!
“That’s why The Healthy Mummy works, because unlike other fad diets, you don’t have to cut out food groups.”
5 top tips for keeping your energy levels up
When it comes to keeping energy levels up while sticking to a weight loss journey – here are Jade’s incredible tips!
1. GO TO BED EARLY!
“Before I joined The Healthy Mummy, I used to stay up until 11/12pm every night.”
As a result, Jade says she felt tired and would lose energy throughout the day. This loss of energy would cause Jade to look for quick, sugary food-fixes.
“Plus, when I went to bed late, I would munch on unhealthy snacks like chips and chocolate while watching TV after the kids went to bed.”
Many of us have been there Jade!
However, since following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and her new lifestyle, Jade says has stuck to a bedtime routine.
“With my new healthy lifestyle, I now go to bed at 9 or 9.30pm. The extra sleep makes it easier for me to get up in the morning.”
2. Be active
“While it sounds like it would be knackering, being active actually gives you MORE energy! I put on my active wear every day.
“Research has revealed that you can decrease fatigue by as much as 65 per cent by getting moving, and I always feel so energised after a workout – whether it be a brisk walk or doing some simple exercises at home while my son has his nap.”
Wow what an awesome finding Jade.
3. Stay hydrated
Here at Healthy Mummy H.Q we can’t stress the importance of drinking water and successful weight loss enough (and for all sorts of reasons).
“I feel really tired when I don’t have enough water in my system. So now I make sure I have at least 2 litres a day.
“It helps me feel wide awake and I feel less lethargic when I know my body is hydrated.”
4. Make sure you’re eating the right amount
“If you eat too much, you run the risk of feeling sluggish. If you eat too little, you may feel like you’ve your energy levels take a dive.
“The best way to know you’re eating the right amount is to keep track of what you consume through The Healthy Mummy’s 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge App.
“Not only does this tell you what your BMR is, but how many calories you should eat each day.”
