How do I prepare for the 6 Months Challenge?

Here are some key things to know and to do to prepare for your health and weight loss journey that will set you up to succeed.

1) Read through your Free Challenge Tool Kit eBook.

This will have been sent to you with your order email confirmation.  It has EVERYTHING you need to keep you motivated and accountable on your journey. It has invaluable information that will set you up to succeed with tips, tricks and hacks to help.  It takes you through in a step-by-step guide how to approach this challenge and you can keep referring to it along the way.

You can also find the Tool Kit available for download on the My Offers Page on your account.

2) Measurements and Photo’s

It’s important when you begin that you know your starting weight, and have good photographs and measurements so you can accurately measure your progress during the 8 weeks.

Remember that sometimes if you are toning up and gaining lean muscle, the scales might not move but you are in fact losing centimetres! This is very motivating and an important step in keeping you on track. Remember to log your measurements in the Healthy Mummy App.

Watch Healthy  Mummy Lauren talk you through how best to take measurements

While the scales won’t always tell you the whole story, good before and after photo’s often will!

3) Set realistic Goals

Set yourself a couple of realistic goals within the time frame of the 8 week challenge, although you may wish to break it down further to week by week or month by month. Your goals may centre around ensuring you stick to your healthy eating plan, and regular exercise. Once you’ve worked out your goals, make sure you plan a reward for achieving them and choose little rewards that are going to keep you on track with your healthy lifestyle

4) Make your 6 month Pledge

If you haven’t already done so you can make your pledge here

Have a real think about what you will commit to during this 6 month time frame and PLEDGE IT! It doesn’t have to necessarily be a number on the scales, it could be how you want to feel, or how you’re going to achieve your goal. Write it down or take a screenshot, so you can refer to it throughout your journey.

5. Planning and Meal Prepping

One of the best things about the Healthy Mummy App is that it does all the healthy meal planning for you. Your weekly meal plan for the following week will be in the app every Wednesday.

You can set aside 15 minutes each week to customise the meal plans to suit you, then your shopping lists are prepared and you’re ready to go! All the meals in the Healthy Mummy App have been created with busy, time-poor mums in mind. They’re easy to prepare, healthy, and family- and budget-friendly. Set aside an hour or so at the beginning of the week and then maybe another time slot mid-week to do some meal prep and get you ahead.

If you’ve never meal prepped before you might feel a little overwhelmed by how it all works but it really doesn’t need to be complicated. Meal prepping has helped so many mums get ahead and really does save you time in the long run.

  • No more cooking in the kitchen every single day – Cooking in batches means you have meals ready to just grab and reheat
  • Money saving – Buying your ingredients in bulk is often much cheaper. Every little bit of money saved is money in your pocket.
  • Helps you avoid temptation – Having a collection of pre-prepared healthy meals means when you’re tired and hungry, you’re less likely to grab a quick and often unhealthy option.

See the ultimate meal prep guide for mums who don’t know where to start. 

6) Have an exercise plan

If you’re new to exercise or working out, the 6 Months Challenge is the perfect time to start a workout plan to ensure you get to your goals. Exercise and movement not only help us to burn calories, but it can also trigger weight loss and have so many positive effects too.

Losing as little as 5kg can slash your risk of developing diabetes by a significant amount!

The Healthy Mummy App includes more than 600 exercises plus full-length guided video workouts that can be completed at home or on the move and you can also track all your workouts in the App.

Whether you decide to get up first thing to get your workout done, or even when the kids are in bed, make sure you take some time in your day to get active.

7) Get to know your Healthy Mummy App

During the 6 months, your Healthy Mummy App will be your best friend. It literally is your meal planner, fitness trainer, motivator, calorie and fitness tracker in one awesome app in the palm of your hand.

Take some time before the challenge to get to know the app features like how to customise your meal plan and track your progress.

6 months is all it took mum-of-2 Alexandra Forrest to lose her baby weight and regain her self confidence.

She says “I still can’t believe how I could let myself go so badly. In January I was the heaviest I had ever been. Going into size 16… which I refused!

That’s when I became a Healthy Mummy”.

Alexandra was fed up with gaining weight AFTER having her 2nd child.

She says “I joined The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge because I wanted to lose weight. I piled on 19kg in my second pregnancy and during the first 5 months of breastfeeding”.

Since singing up to The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge in 6 months she has lost 18kg and says “I am still amazed by it all”.

“It’s really easy to stick too”

Alexandra says that joining The Healthy Mummy Challenges almost instantly changed her mindset towards food, her body and exercise.

She says “Once you get the hang of it all it’s really easy to stick too.

All I have done is follow the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge meal plans and exercises and had the Healthy Mummy smoothies (one a day for a snack rather than for a main meal). This way I am never hungry”.

Chloe Wills  lost 23 kilos in 6 months

In the last 6 months, this incredible mum has lost 23 kilos by following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and using the Healthy Mummy Tummy Smoothies.

Chloe found the Healthy Mummy four years ago after the birth of her first baby. Having put on 20 kilos and the heaviest she’d ever been she knew she needed to get healthy. While she has had her ups and downs with weight over the last four years, for the last 6 months she has focussed her efforts and it has more than paid off!

‘I feel energetic all the time to be able to run around and enjoy being there with my kids as they grow!

Good luck to everyone taking part! We can’t wait to see you SMASH YOUR GOALS!!!
