It’s Time to Set Your “Mid-Years” Resolutions! – 5 Main Ingredients Challenge starts July 25th

Is it nearly August already? We’re more than halfway through 2022 and at this time of year, things seem to be whirling by. New Year’s resolutions are a distant memory, and it seems like every second advert on TV is for a meal delivery service.

As tempting as it is to order takeout or let yourself slip into old habits, your future self will thank you for being proactive and beating the cold-weather blues.

If you’re looking for inspiration, this is it! We’ve set you some ACHIEVABLE and INSPIRING Mid-Years resolutions to make the most of The 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge this month.

Mid-Years Resolution Number One

Put pen to paper, and draw a big red circle around July 25th on your calendar. This marks the start of the August 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge, and the theme is 5 Main Ingredients.”

What does this mean for you? Budget-friendly meal plans with lots of delicious fresh food and pantry basics. All recipes are made up of 5 Main Ingredients … or LESS!

Goal: Customise your meal plan at the beginning of the challenge, and get cooking with 5 ingredients or less! Get the whole family involved!
Learn how to customise your meal plan in the Healthy Mummy App.

Mid-Years Resolution Number Two

At the tail end of Winter, it’s easy to spend more time in our Ugg Boots than running shoes. But, with the cost of heating bills on our mind, a budget-friendly way to warm your body is… EXERCISE!

Did you know that there are SO MANY QUICK and effective guided workouts on The Healthy Mummy App that you can do from the comfort of your own home?

Goal: Make the most of The Healthy Mummy App by following a guided workout in the App.
