Being a busy mum and running around after little kids can sometimes feel like you’re competing in a triathlon but for this Mum, she actually completed her own personal triathlon after the organised event was cancelled!
Having lost 25 kilos with the Healthy Mummy, Beth was determined that the cancelled event was not going to stop her!
Beth Jones is a 32 year old mum of two little ones age 3 and a half and 18 months from Bendigo in Victora. After putting on some excess pregnancy weight in both her pregnancies, she was determined to lose that weight again safely after her second baby was born.
“The first time round I lost about 25kg from the weight I was when I got home from the hospital. Since having my second I’ve lost about 25kgs again, but I’m now the lightest I’ve been since high school.
Since losing the weight and being fitter I’ve found my mental health to be so much better, my anxiety has gotten so much better and overall I feel happier.”
Beth has always loved her fitness and enjoys the butt and thigh workouts in the Healthy Mummy App. But last January, Beth challenged herself even further by taking part in her first triathlon!
“I was so excited that I could do it 5 months after the birth of my second. A year later I booked into the same triathlon but because of covid it got cancelled, so I decided to not make it being cancelled as an excuse not to do it, so I mapped out the ride and run and found a pool and did it by myself.
This time it was double the distance that I did the previous year.”
Beth has found using the Healthy Mummy Smoothies a big part of her weight loss success.
“I love the Healthy Mummy Smoothies, they are so quick and easy to grab and have, I have one every morning for breakfast. My favourite is the Choc Fudge one.”
Along with her smoothie every morning, Beth uses snacks from the Healthy Mummy App.
“Snacks throughout the day typically are the Mint Choc Bubble crunch, (pictured) White Chocolate and Apricot slice (available on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge), popcorn, apples, cruskits and cheese.”
“Lunch is typically either a Ham Cheese and Pineapple quesadilla, or a sandwich or a salad.
Dinner the majority of the time are meals from the Healthy Mummy App. Family favourites at the moment are the Mongolian Beef stir fry, Baked Chicken Spaghetti (pictured) and Bacon Spinach and Tomato Risotto.”
“Desserts lately have typically been luscious Lemon Pudding, and Best Brownie Mug Cake.”
Along with the butt and thigh workouts, Beth enjoys trying out different types of workouts in the Healthy Mummy App.
“I loved the fit postnatal workouts from the app post having my babies while I was gradually getting my strength and fitness back, I love workouts with Wendy.”
“My advice would be start off slow, pick one thing to change. Calculate your BMR and eat to your calories. I’ve found small changes and having the weight come off slowly is making it more maintainable for me.
Congratulations Beth on your incredible triathlon and weight loss results!
