“We’re saving over $80 a week!”: 10 reasons WHY this family LOVE their more affordable lifestyle

This mum says before she made changes to her diet and exercise regime, it wasn’t always easy to find the energy to do things with her kids. But then, mum-of-two Robyn Jurd decided to shake things up and joined the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and started drinking Healthy Mummy’s Smoothies.

“Before I joined The Healthy Mummy, I was stuck in a rut,” she admits. “But I have since lost 25kg since I joined The Healthy Mummy.” 

“But it works for not just me, but my WHOLE family. They LOVE it as much as me.”

Here are 10 ways Robyn’s new healthy lifestyle regime has benefited her WHOLE family…

10 reasons Robyn says The Healthy Mummy works for her family:

1. The meals are easy to prepare

“I can have a healthy dinner ready for the family in 15 minutes if I need to. The Beef Burger Salad is a regular in our house because it’s ready in no time and delicious.”

The Beef Burger Salad is a delicious and easy way to serve burgers without the need for a bun. This recipe is available for Challenge members and can be found on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge hub.

2. The workouts can be done anywhere

“With two young children it can sometimes be difficult to get out and go to the gym or for a run. I love that the Challenge exercises can be done anywhere! I’ve even done them in the courtyard at my work! No more excuses for me not to work out.”

DanceFit is a family friendly workout with both beginner and advanced workouts. AND it’s fun and easy to follow. Kids love to boogie along with you.You can find DanceFit under 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge App exercise tab.

3. It’s convenient

“The new 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge App is amazing and makes the program so easy to follow. I have my recipes, my meal plan, exercises and shopping list all in one place on my phone!”

4. The meals are kid friendly

“I have two of the most fussiest eaters! They love the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge meals. The Porcupine Meatballs, One Pot Spaghetti Bolognese and Chicken and Corn Nuggets are favourites of Miss 3 and Mr 1.

“My daughter has become such a better eater since we started using Healthy Mummy recipes. “

5. The meals are husband friendly!

“The fact that I still make pizza, pasta and pies has my husband on board. In fact, he has lost 15kg on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, also!”

6. The meal plans are completely customisable

“The flexibility of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge makes it work for us. I often pick one or two snacks and make a big batch for the week for everyone.

“We have some relatives with food intolerances and even when they come over we can still use Challenge recipes, as there is a great filter on the app for dietary requirements!”

7. I’m saving money

“I customise my meal plan to suit my family, so I pick things that uses similar ingredients. I also use what I already have at home. By making all of our snacks it actually costs so much less than buying the same packaged snack!

“I reckon I’m saving at least $50-$80 a week, as we are not buying packaged foods or jar sauces anymore.”

8. We don’t have to cut out whole food groups

“I had tried a few different diets before finding The Healthy Mummy, and I never lasted on them (or had much success with them).

“The main reason The Healthy Mummy works for my family is that it is easy to stick to. There is so much variety and the food is delicious.”

9. My family is involved

“Unlike other diets I have tried, The Healthy Mummy is very family friendly and focused. My daughter loves helping me pick out our meals for the week and helps me make them.”

10. It’s not a diet, it’s a lifestyle change

“I don’t feel like I’m on a diet and have learnt so much about healthy eating, balance and exercise for joining. My lifestyle is so different to what it was before.”

That is amazing Robyn!

Robyn’s proof that the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge works for mums and their busy family life. Here she tells us why she’s not strict with herself, doesn’t cut out whole food groups and still lost an amazing amount of weight.

“I knew I needed to lose weight after having kids. I was active before having children. I played touch footy and netball but a back injury while I was pregnant with my daughter meant almost a year of physio. I never got back into exercise after that,” she says.

“I started using The Healthy Mummy Smoothies for breakfast and then joined the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge. Honestly I only intended trialling it for a month and over a year on and I’m still a member!

“Now healthy eating and exercise are just part of my routine. I want my children to grow up with a healthy and happy mum so in that way they are my motivation. I want them to grow up with a positive body image.”
