1 .Plan! Plan out your food and exercise so you know exactly what you’re eating and how you’re moving your body each day. It’s heaps easier to stick to that way! 2. Prep! Meal prep is what keeps me on track on those busy days. If I have dinner prepped I’m less likely to just go for something convenient because I’m tired or the kids are being tough! 3. Challenge yourself! Step outside your comfort zone and try something new…it’s where the magic happens!!
Sam is a mum of 5 kiddies. She has a 21 year old, an 18 year old, a 15 year old, a 4 year old and a 2 year old.
Sam is a HUGE fan of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges and Healthy Mummy Smoothies. She has been following all things Healthy Mummy for about 24 months now.
Sam started her weight loss journey at 191 pounds. She is now 163 pounds.
“I wanted to feel comfortable and confident no matter what I was wearing as well as wanting to be fittest and healthiest I have ever been,” Sam reveals.
Sam’s fitness goal is to continue to build muscle and tone up so that come summer she can wear shorts and singlets with confidence.
Sam’s tops weight loss tips include:
1. Prep and plan your day. Schedule in your exercise and prep when you can. Even if it’s an extra few serves of a meal that you chuck in the freezer, you will be grateful on those days / nights when things get a little crazy.
2. Ask for help or advice. If you feel you’re getting a little wobbly and need help to stay on track or to talk things through. Do it!!! The Facebook Support Group is a wealth of knowledge and great if you need a little encouragement or support.
3. Don’t look back and dwell on things. If you have made a few bad food choices, didn’t drink enough water or over indulged, just move on. You can’t change the past so make the rest of your week really count.
