What is the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge all about?

The 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge has helped 100’s of thousands of mums just like you lose weight and get on top of their health goals. It’s amazing what can be achieved in just 28 days with many mums losing between 4 – 6 kilos and finding their whole lives changed in that time.

With the Healthy Mummy App in your hand, the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge provides 28 days of customisable meal plans, at-home exercise videos, well-being and mindset videos, along with tools for you to track your progress.

You’ll also have access to an extraordinary support network with other mums sharing their journey and supporting yours. We’ve also got a few other things, like a 28 Day Tool Kit, competitions and prizes to motivate you and keep you accountable.

How do I prepare for the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge?

1 – Read through your FREE 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge Tool Kit (RRP $25)

This will have been sent to you with your order email confirmation and is jammed packed with all you need to set your goals for the month and stay 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 a step-by-step guide on 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 in your account.

2 – Take body measurements and photos to track progress

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 28 days.

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.

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

3- Set realistic goals

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

  • I want to start walking 10,000 steps a day;
  • I want to fit better in my clothing;
  • I want to feel more confident in a swimsuit;
  • I want to have the energy to play with my kids;
  • I want to commit to drinking 2 litres of water a day.

4 – Check out the meal planning and get 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.

6 – Have an exercise plan

If you’re new to exercise or working out, the 28 Day Weight Loss 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 they also help us lose those extra kilos, get fitter, stronger and have more energy to chase those kids.

The Healthy Mummy App includes hundreds of exercises from full-length guided video workouts that can be completed at home or short mini-workouts that can be completed on the move. You can also track all your workouts in the App, whether you’ve completed them in the app or at a gym.

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 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, 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. Save some workouts you think you’ll love and meals you want to cook for the family. That way you’ll be ready with a workout or meal even on days you have no time.

8 – Join the community and get support from mums just like you

The  28 Day Weight Loss Challenge has an incredible community of mums just like you in a Private Support Group. In this group, you can talk to other mums just like you, going through the same journey or who have been there before. They’ll offer advice, support or just an empathetic ear. There’s guaranteed support and motivation in this group, as well as accountability. This is a space where you’ll be able to ask questions, get practical advice, and see other mums successes and struggles and it will be an integral part of your journey.  Amazing things happen when women support each other!
