“I just don’t give up” – This mum is the motivation you need!

Need a hit of motivation? We’ve got you covered.

This mum is the motivation you need

Meet Jessica Hay. This mum and runner is sharing her top tips on how to keep going when it gets tough and how progress isn’t always measured by the number on the scales.

This mum is the motivation you need!

Jessica has dreams of running marathons and measures her success by her increased fitness and focuses on this rather than saying she’s on a weight loss journey. So instead of weighing herself and looking at the scales, Jessica’s successes are things like being able to run further, beating a personal best and setting goals to work towards.

“I’m about to complete my second 6 mile run in two weeks time and I’m so proud. There’s no way I could have managed that at the start of the year,” she says.“A combination of using the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge meal plans and sticking to a training plan has done me wonders.”

What about when it gets tough?

We all have good and bad days, and Jessica certainly knows how tough it can get. She says she was in pain every day and was just idling through life, but it was the end game that kept her motivated.“I want to be able to create fun and energetic memories with my children. On the days it gets tough I focus on how far I’ve come,” she says. “I know I have so far to go but little by little it gets easier. I’ll always gain one more day if I just don’t give up.”

7. Take photos all the time so you can see your progress and lean on social media and support groups. They are valuable tools.

“Remember you don’t have to keep up with anyone else’s journey, you just have to keep pushing yourself to your own limitations to make progress.”
