“My life is chaotic, dramatic and exhausting”

Zena says, “These tips can help you get on track to a better lifestyle. a busy working Mumma, my life is chaotic, dramatic and exhausting  which is why I love The Healthy Mummy!

I’m up at 4.30am, leave for gym at 5am with a toddler, 6.20am we drive to daycare drop off and 7am I’m at work, I get home around 3/3.30pm, play, dinner, baths, lunch ready, work on my small side business, bed.. to do it all again the next day!

My life needs to be organised, food planned to a tee, and it needs to be simple! This is why I love the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge so much, it’s easy, I can swap and change the meal plans to suit me, I can exercise at home, I can have a smoothie when I’m on the run.”

  2. Exercise

    Zoe says that she schedules in exercise when she can throughout the day.

    “I usually get up at 6am and have my exercises done by the time the kiddies wake up,” says Zoe. “Saturday mornings I usually have to myself, as the hubby looks after the kids, so I go to an exercise class.”

  3. Housework

    Zoe says she has learnt that the housework can wait. She says that “following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge has given her more energy.”
