6 tips to stay on track when it’s halfway through the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge

Alicia Sims, Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, is sharing 6 AMAZING tips to help you stay on weight loss track when it’s halfway through the Challenge.

These tips, in hand with your metabolism boosting recipes and exercises – you’re bound to have an awesome week.

1.Measure your progress

Weigh in, pull out the measuring tape and do The Healthy Mummy Fitness Test again. Compare your results with your initial measurements so you can see how you’ve fared in the first two weeks of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.

2.Identify any weaknesses

What didn’t go well in the first two weeks? Did you struggle to commit to a certain habit? What went alright but could be improved?

3.Make a plan

Now that you know where you stand and what you need to improve, it’s time to figure out how you can implement changes to rock the second half of the Challenge.

Didn’t drink enough water? Make a plan to drink more, whether it’s by carrying a water bottle with you throughout your day, adding fruit to make it easier to drink or keeping yourself accountable with the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge App water intake tracker.

4.Be prepared

If you identified poor food choices as a problem area due to time constraints or being caught out unprepared, now is your chance to change it.

Meal plan, meal prep and make ahead wherever possible to eliminate the temptation of unhealthy convenience foods.

If you didn’t exercise as much as you had hoped, try getting your exercise gear ready the night before so you are ready to hit the ground running.

5.Be accountable

Be accountable. Find someone you trust to help you stay on track during the second half of the Challenge.

Whether it’s someone to exercise with, a helping hand in the kitchen or just someone to check your progress, knowing you aren’t alone is a huge motivator.

The Healthy Mummy Private Support Group is perfect for this if you don’t have a real-life support team.

6.Be realistic

A healthy, sustainable weight loss is around 500g-1kg a week.

With only two weeks left of the current 28 Day Challenge, you should be aiming for a 1-2kg loss at most between now and the end of the month. Don’t worry if you haven’t met your goals so far, just focus on making the next 2 weeks your best yet.
