Try these tips to stay motivated in Week 2 of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge:

  • Remember planning is key – ensure you know what you are going to eat for the week ahead and have the ingredients ready to go.
  • Prepare as many meals ahead of time as you can – marinate meats, chop veggies and fruits and store in airtight containers in the fridge, or make whole meals in larger batches and store in individual portions to just reheat and eat.
  • Keep things simple – you don’t need to eat different things every day if you don’t want to. It’s perfectly ok to choose 2-3 breakfasts and repeat them over the week or make extra of the dinner recipes to have for lunch the next day.
  • Stick to your schedule – plan when you are going to include some exercise each day and stick to it. If you need to change it around that’s ok. If you’ve planned to go for a run but wake up feeling a little flat, go for a brisk walk instead – listen to your body.
  • Be kind to yourself – if you have a bad day, aren’t feeling 100%, need some time out, that’s all fine. Do what you need to do and don’t feel guilty if you don’t stick to your plans everyday – just get back on track as soon as you can.
