Oh. My. Goodness!!!  Today is the first day of the very last 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge of 2016 and we are SUPER EXCITED! Let’s make December our healthiest month yet ladies and finish this year with a bang – 28 days really CAN make a difference.

The December Challenge is all about being organised and saving time

This month’s 28 day weight loss challenge theme is entirely based around ‘meal-preparation’ and time saving tips which are the holy grail of busy mums. Being organised in your meal prep has been identified by so many mums as a real key to successful weight loss, and this month we’re going to help you achieve that.

Of course we’ll also be adding lots of festive flair too.

Something New

We will be releasing a “Simplified Meal Plan” for each week of the Dec Challenge on the same day the usual Meal Plan is released. It will be in a PDF format which you can download.  If you use our challenge app you will need to go to your desktop to download the simplified meal plan.

The simplified plan shows that by repeating recipes, making some meals in bulk and using recipes with similar ingredients, makes it REALLY EASY to do meal prep and get organised for a healthy week of eating. Just copy our “Simplified Meal Plan” into your customiser (making any serve and recipe changes to suit you) and follow the meal prep tips on the recipes to become a Meal-Prep-Machine!
