5 tips for staying on track and smashing through week 3

Getting fitter and stronger, staying active or keeping up your motivation can be a challenge but you’ve made it this far, so don’t give up now.

5 tips for staying on track and smashing through week 3

Research shows that weight loss plans can fall by the wayside within two weeks so sticking with it for the third and beyond means your chances of success skyrocket. Hooray! Alicia Whitbread, who has lost over 4st. on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challengeshas shared her top tips on how to stay on track during your weight loss journey for week 3.

5 ways to stay on track and smash week 3!

Alicia says, “Did you know that doing something for 28 – 30 days ingrains the brain’s neural pathways, which sounds like mumbo jumbo, but it means you are likely to keep up behaviour because you work more on autopilot.”

“So how do we stay on track and smash our fitness goals for week 3? Here’s how…” 

1. Be smart

Be SMART about your goals this week (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, time bound) decide what you want to achieve, look at your time frame, pick a path to get there and have an understanding of what it takes to achieve your goals. The key point for week 3 and 4 is to set realistic expectations for yourself.

2. Treat yourself

Treat yourself, you’ve been on track for the last 3 weeks and you are nearly at the end of the challenge, what goals have you achieved and how will you praise your amazing efforts?

3. Be accountable

Smashing your goals is preparation and a lot of hard work. The hardest part is always getting that active wear on and making a start.

4. Stay hydrated

Keep up your fluids, water maintains the health and integrity of every cell in the body and coming into summer and in periods of exercise our water loss increases…so DRINK UP!

5. Believe in yourself

Borrow a page from your kids books that says ‘I think I can’. When your will power runs low, it sounds cheesy, but you CAN do this you just need to believe in yourself.

Alicia’s 4st. weight loss story

Alicia is new to the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge but after signing up she says she was instantly ‘hooked’ and signed up for another six months.

“I was getting bored with my exercise and with food,”  Alicia says. “I had lost 4st. but had hit a plateau. The scales were not moving and my body was used to my current exercise plan.”

But then Alicia found the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge!

“I love the amazing exercises and in three weeks I lost an additional 2 inches just off my tummy,” she says.

“Not to mention having access to an incredible list of recipes to switch up my snacks and keep my diet not only tasty, but exciting.”

“It hasn’t just helped me, my 3 year old tells me she is exercising now and my hubby and 22 month old beg for Healthy Mummy snacks. How could I not sign up for more months with access to all this in the palm of my hand?”
