Searching to make mum's life easier
The great jeans challenge - week 1
Like most women, I have a favourite pair of jeans. They are well worn, well loved, and almost intrinsic to my personality.
It was a happy occasion when they were first folded away, I was pregnant and growing ridiculously quickly. But they have been staring at me from the wardrobe for months now, and I desperately want to be able to wear them again.
So that is the driving force behind my embarking on the Healthy Mummy weight loss and healthy eating plan - it's not about the kilos, its all about getting healthy and getting back to being me again.
I've really found as a new mum that I simply don't have the time or the capacity to look after myself properly. My energy is rock bottom, my self-esteem a close second.
So I'm hoping this plan will give me the tips and ability to get me back on track.
A bit about the range:
The Healthy Mummy range is a new product range designed to help mums get healthy post baby and also aid weight loss.
It is 100% created for mums and designed to help support the milk supply of breastfeeding mums.
Strawberry Smoothie and Vanilla Smoothie mix.
Portioned controlled dark chocolate snack packs.
Booklet crammed with nutritional advice, snack tips and smoothie recipes
The website full of exercises, recipes and tips.
A bit of the science:
Each smoothie contains Fenugreek, Flaxseeds, Pumpkin seeds and Apple Pectin to help support milk supply and weight management whilst still maintaining energy levels.
The entire range is dairy and gluten free.
So you can share the progress with me (yet avoiding putting photos my not-so photogenic self on the internet!), my 4 year old and I are going to illustrate the jeans every step of the way!
This is how they fit today... so you can see we have some work to do!
The verdict so far:
4 days in, and so far I'm very impressed. I am clueless when it comes to healthy eating and calorie content, so the e-book and website are a wealth of recipes and tips - with things that are easy to prepare and yummy!
The smoothies are fab, and I love the way you can add fruit to make it a proper smoothie (recipes also provided) rather than one of those watery weight loss shakes.
The exercises online are so easy to fit into my every day routine with the kids, and so far... really fun! Who doesn't love dancing?!
