Leah’s Takes Multi-Tasking To A Whole New Level

Earlier this week, Leah uploaded an absolutely incredible video in our Healthy Mummy And Lose Baby Weight Facebook Support Group! As soon as we saw it, we just KNEW we had to share it!

Leah uploaded an awesome video making a delicious Healthy Mummy smoothie. Whilst waiting for her smoothie to ‘blend’, this incredible mum manages to find time for some squats (using almond milk as weights) and bench push-ups!

Leah absolutely makes healthy eating and exercise look super-duper easy!

We asked this mum if she would be willing to share a little bit about her journey with us. And this is what she said… 

Leah’s Incredible Story

“I am 35, married and a mum to two boys (four and a half and two years old). Before having children I weighed 65kg. During both pregnancies I gained 20kg.

A year after having my first baby, I realised I was suffering from severe anxiety and PND.

It was extremely hard for me to admit that I wasn’t on top of everything. After receiving amazing support from my doctor, family and friends I felt a lot stronger.

After having my second child I worried that I would go back to square one with my anxiety so I decided I needed to do something just for me to keep me on track.”

Discovering The Healthy Mummy

When a friend informed Leah about The Healthy Mummy, this mum new knew she was on to something good.

Leah says, “That’s when a good friend told me about The Healthy Mummy. I began my Healthy Mummy journey when my youngest was five months old. I was 75 kg and I felt tired, lacked energy and constantly felt bloated. The Health Mummy seemed like the perfect thing to help me become healthy and happy.

I started the Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges in February 2015.

I 100 per cent stuck to the meal plans and exercise plans for 6 months. I steadily lost 15kg, averaging a loss of 500g-1kg per week.”

Healthy Eating

Leah says, “I absolutely loved what The Healthy Mummy taught me about food.

I quickly learnt that I had been eating way too much and completely the wrong things. The biggest changes were making my portion sizes smaller and cutting out refined sugars. The meals are absolutely delicious, easy to make and the choice of meals is endless.

After losing the weight, I loved that my clothes no longer felt uncomfortable and I absolutely LOVED walking into any clothes store and being able to try things on knowing they’d fit and look good! I felt so happy, healthy and proud of myself.”

Incredible Family Support

“My husband is my number one supporter. He eats everything I eat and loves that by discovering The Healthy Mummy, our lives have become so healthy and positive. My boys are learning how to lead healthy lives and my four year old always tells me that he loves that I’m a Healthy Mummy.

I am now 59kg, and I have maintained my weight for 18 months. I have two Healthy Mummy smoothies per day and I absolutely love them.”

Leah continues; “Everyday I squat when my smoothie is blitzing! I love fitting in exercise whenever and wherever I am.

My boys regularly join me and I love that I am a role model for them. I am fit, healthy, happy and strong because of The Healthy Mummy.

I have recently started participating in parkrun and my next goal is to take part in a mini women’s only triathlon at The Regatta Centre, Penrith.”
