Motivating Mum of two, Barbara Dixon, has lost an amazing 10kgs with Lose Baby Weight and shares her story on how her family is loving the healthy lifestyle change and is excited for the the 28 Day Winter Weight Loss Challenge!
It’s July! I am so excited to be starting the 28 Day Winter Weight Loss Challenge as another chapter in my lifestyle change.
Since starting the Lose Baby Weight Plans I have lost 10kg but more than that all the lives in this house have changed for the better! Now we sit, eat and chat rather than grabbing food on the run, my daughter is not even two and she knows the names, look and taste of such a range of foods because I am cooking new and interesting things.
I feel so much better, the scientist in me likes to experiment with different Healthy Mummy Smoothie recipes and every day I am excited about baking or cooking new things and feeling prepared.
Just the whole journey so far has been amazing and my body is stronger, slimmer and looking much better. I have no issues with breast milk supply and I put that down to a better digestion system from the natural Healthy Mummy Smoothie mix and eating close to nature with the foods the body can recognise and digest easily.
After having two babies within 15 months I need to be a little patient with my belly but I know if I continue it will get smaller, I gave birth 5 short months ago after all! I am hopeful that mixing it up in 28 Day Winter Weight Loss Challenge and targeting exercises that challenge my core will make a difference.
My favourite Healthy Mummy Smoothie this week has to be the Chai Smoothie, it feels really indulgent. I love it and had a tin of chai spices hanging around in my cupboard for ages. That’s the other thing, I am loving my pantry with clean wholefoods and once you start to change your thinking, your food philosophy and your shopping, you’ll find that you have most ingredients on the website or the books.
A big saviour for me has been the Nutty Choc Chip Quinoa Balls from the 28 Day Diet and Exercise Plan book. The protein balls are a joy to make and freeze really well and defrost quite quickly. When I leave the house I pop one or two in my baby bag and it means if I get hungry there is a guilt free snack at hand or if I am meeting people for coffee I can have something with my herbal tea and still feel like I am ‘out for coffee’.  I make these quinoa balls on the day I run out of them, it’s easy as quinoa, natural peanut butter, dates and dark chocolate chips – all are staples in my pantry these days.
The closed Facebook Healthy Mummy and Lose Baby Weight Private Support Group is a great place to go for ideas and motivation, I don’t know another company that you have access to lots of participants who can speak freely and can feedback to the CEO daily! If you thought you needed a personal trainer or health coach to be motivated and inspired well there are over 2000 coaches waiting online and the best thing about that is they are mums too, they have been where you have been and know what it’s like on days when you have had broken sleep and poonami nappies and a teething toddler that won’t let go of your leg. When life gives you lemons… use your toddler as a leg weight!
I am also really enjoying the Healthy Mummy Post Pregnancy Exercise DVD and was happy to do the 15 Minute Low Impact Cardio Workout and 15 Minute Toning Cardio Workout and the 10 Minute Lower Body Workout but for some reason was skipping the 10 Minute Abs, Back and Core Workout and you will see in my photo my legs are getting toned but my belly is still quiet tubby. So in July I am going to put my big-girl-pants on (pardon the pun!) and work on my core more.
Yesterday I had a 900g loss and am in the same kilo range as my husband. I really disliked weighing more than him. Around our engagement and wedding he could pick me up easily and I really want to get back to that for several reasons!
I feel on my way. With some of the “diets” I have tried I would be depressed if you told me I was still eating that way in 6 months time – but with the Healthy Mummy Plans I know this is not temporary for me.  I could not be more onboard. Watch this space!!!
