RhianYou should be patting yourself on the back as it’s the final week of the Winter Weight Loss Challenge and you’ve all done so well to get this far – congratulations!
Are you feeling more energised from following the exercise routines and healthy eating plans? We hope you’re getting closer to your weight loss goals and more importantly feeling enthusiastic about making healthy eating and exercise part of your everyday lifestyle, something you can continue on with once the Challenge is over.
If you are finding it difficult to keep motivated or life, as it does, has made things tricky to stick to the plans on the Challenge then get in touch or post on the Lose Baby Weight Facebook Group and you’ll be inundated with support to get you back on track.
You’ve come so far, don’t give up now, read our  helpful tips to keep you going if you’re feeling things are getting hard or for further motivation have a read here.

Week 4 Includes:

  • Some fantastic Winter warming recipes – soups that you can prepare in bulk and freeze to make it easy to have healthy meals ready throughout the week. Plus delicious curries, wraps and Winter salads
  • As with previous weeks, get organised before Week 4 starts and read through the meal plan a few days early to decide what you’re going to prepare and what you can pre-prepare on the weekend so you’re not spending all week in the kitchen. We’ve identified the recipes that are good for freezing or increasing in quantities.
  • Shopping lists – when you’re going through the weekly meal plan, have a look at the shopping list and if there are recipes you know you won’t be cooking then adjust the shopping list to suit what’s already in your pantry or fridge. Or if you want to change some ingredients around to suit your taste, then that’s fine too.
  • Meal Plans and Recipes are now even easier to print out – just choose the print button and select what you want printed for the week.
  • More daily exercises that you can fit into your busy lives when it suits you. If you do miss a day or two, try to aim for at least 3-4 workouts a week plus if you can incorporate some exercise as part of your daily routines e.g. walking to the shops, taking the stairs, doing squats whilst hanging out the washing etc, you’ll be surprised at how all these activities add up to getting you energised and healthy.
  • Continued inspiration from other mums on our Challenge within our Private Support Group. There’s been some great stories shared since the Challenge started and if you want to share how you’re feeling as we’re getting closer to the end of the Challenge, ask questions or just need a pep up, then we’d love to hear from you.
