Cat on Channel 9!

Cat, who is 30 weeks pregnant, chatted to Channel 9 was about how and why she started her Healthy Mummy journey back in 2010. She says that she was tipping into triple digits after her first child and is now incorporating The Healthy Mummy Pregnancy Smoothie into my third pregnancy.

She’s still an active 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge member, but rather than focusing on weight loss, Cat is using the family friendly recipes to feed my family and make sure that she’s nourishing her body while pregnant.

“I highly credit the Healthy Pregnancy Smoothie to me being able to get through the rough early weeks with morning sickness.”

“I love the conveinience of the Healthy Mummy Pregnancy Smoothie. Bump’s fave is the Sneaky Snickers Smoothie, using the Healthy Mummy Pregnancy Smoothie Mix and the Healthy Chocolate Doughnut Smoothie (pictured below). which I made using The Healthy Pregnancy mix.”

Cat’s Healthy Mummy journey

Cat started her journey in 2010 with recipes available on our blog, but back then she didn’t have the amazing access to the never-ending recipes and at home workouts of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges like she does now.

“I had managed to lose a total of 32kgs with The Healthy Mummy between 2010 – 2015 (and having my second child in the middle). I was able to maintain this weight loss and increase my fitness and health to be a Group Fitness Instructor since 2015 and during my third pregnancy,” says Cat.

“Keeping up with two school aged kids and working three jobs can be time consuming but they help me to make sure I am feeding myself and belly bub all of the nutrients we need.”

Cat’s a big fan of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge recipe hub!

“I love all of the recipes being at my finger tips. No more dragging heavy piles of recipe books out to write my meal plans- a quick search of ‘chicken’, ‘meatballs,’ ‘nachos,’ or ‘pie’ and we are set to go! Easy. Simple. Family friendly.”

The Healthy Mummy Smoothies save my bacon daily. If it wasn’t for delicious, easy ‘meals in minutes’ I would be going hours of the morning before having breakfast!”
