Julie has lost an amazing 14kgs with The Healthy Mummy and becomes a Motivating Mum for November and has a new passion for running.

Hi, I am Julie and am excited to come on board as a Motivating Mum for November.
I have been using The Healthy Mummy recipes and Healthy Mummy Smoothies since late 2012 and have had amazing success! I have found a love for the wholesome and nutritious food and the delicious smoothies as well as becoming fitter and stronger than ever before.
I have always been a reasonably active person but never really worried too much about my diet but after giving birth to my daughter in July 2012 I decided that I needed to improve my overall health in order to be a good role model for my daughter. I stumbled across an advertisement for The Healthy Mummy in My Child magazine and decided to give it a go and I haven’t looked back since.
I had previously tried other diets in the past but I have NEVER achieved results anywhere near what I have by following The Healthy Mummy plans, I just love how all of the food doesn’t really feel like you are actually on a diet, it has taught me that preparing healthy meals is actually quite simple and possible being a busy mother – I no longer turn to the convenience of pre-packaged, processed foods because I now know I can just as easily make it myself and I know exactly what I am putting in my body.
I always start my day with a Healthy Mummy Smoothie as I just love the convenience of them! I was never much of a breakfast eater but I now look forward to my morning smoothie as I find it gives me the energy to kick-start my day and I regularly cook meals found in The 28 Day Diet & Exercise Plan cookbook as well as The Healthy Spring and Summer cookbook and my little family are absolutely loving the food we eat.
Since beginning my journey to lose my baby weight I have lost 14kg and gained so much confidence in myself and I have found a new found love for exercise, despite always being a reasonably active person I had previously only really participated in team sports but I can now honestly say I am the fittest I have ever been, I have a new found love for running and have pushed myself to lengths I never really thought possible! I have completed several 10km running events and now have my sights set on completing a Half Marathon!
I have achieved what I thought was the impossible by following The Healthy Mummy plans and I am looking forward to be a Motivating Mum this month and I hope to inspire those mums at the beginning of their journey because if I can do it – anyone can!
