Cicily says she has now found her fit, happy self again. Given her incredible weight loss success, Cicily is here sharing her incredible tips to help other mums smash their weight loss goals.
Cicily’s top 10 tips to help you smash your weight loss goals
1. Set a reasonable goal
Don’t get caught in the mindset “I need to lose a certain amount each month. I like to aim for one to two pounds loss each week.” Now, that might not seem like much, BUT it all adds up! Sometimes we set ourselves up too much, which can really get us down and as a result drag us further away from our goals.
2. Get out and exercise outdoors
Get in the backyard and do some squats. Go for a walk somewhere beautiful with the kids. Being outside really keeps that energy and motivation up, far more than sitting on the lounge.
3. Squeeze more water into your day
Whether that be plain water, fruit infused water or herbal teas. Water is so important for our bodies, especially when it comes to weight loss.
Did you know you can track your water intake with the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge App?
4. Eat foods your are excited about
When you plan your weekly meals, don’t settle for something that doesn’t make you salivate. In the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge Hub there are soo many amazing recipes. Find the ones you REALLY WANT to eat, and get excited to stay on track.
5. Meal Prep
Use the recipes on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge meal plan and recipe hub for all other meals and snacks. If you don’t have time to cook all the time, try your hand at meal prepping. Meal prep doesn’t mean you have to stay in the kitchen for hours on end chopping, preparing and cooking meals for months at a time. Meal prep can be as simple as chopping a few extra vegetables when cooking tonight’s dinner to pop away and use for tomorrow’s lunch. Meal prep can be as simple as using the same ingredients to make a whole bunch of recipes and food.
6. Start walking
Walking is all I’ve done for most of my journey. I now follow the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge exercises and but it didn’t start that way. I understand that exercise is HARD when you’re overweight and unfit so don’t put too much pressure on yourself!
7. Create a vision board
I love vision boards.When I need extra motivation, I like to get my kids’ textas, crayons, pencils or whatever, and make a big poster of all the things I can’t wait to achieve. I often find myself doing this daily. Keep your motivation high by focusing on the good things that will come when you meet your goals.
8. Set realistic goals
With unrealistic goals comes failure and more of a chance to give up. By setting small and realistic goals for YOU – you are giving yourself the best chance at weight loss success.
9. 6 good days and 1 rest day
Moderation is key here. As this is your life you want to be able to enjoy it and be able to do this forever! “Don’t make it a chore, don’t be boring, don’t stop living! If you have a birthday, enjoy it! But make it count where you can,” Cicily said.
10. Had a cheat meal? Pick yourself up again!
Pick yourself back up! Had a cheat meal? You know what that mean? You’re one extra meal away from your goal. THAT’S NOT MUCH! Don’t be so hard on yourself. Life is full of ups and downs, we really can’t be perfect all the time. It’s just one meal. Keep your perspective reasonable, it’s not all over because of one meal.
