if you’re anything like me, you find it difficult to even find time to have a wash, there’s always something more pressing. Here I’m hoping to encourage myself and you to put yourself first a bit more!


The key to reaching your goal?

On Wednesday, 1st August at 8pm it’ll be the 2nd Mums’ Days Fit Club Facebook Party! I’ll be hosting the party over on the Mums’ Days Facebook Page to see how you’ve been getting on with your goals for health and fitness. It’ll be about accountability, support and just a bit of a chin wag really!

Accountability? Are you reaching your goals? Find out how to and join the next Mums' Days Fit Club Facebook Party

I hope you can come! I will also be giving away another load of gorgeous Protest sets for all those who click “Going” on the facebook event page. If you’d like a refresher of what everyone’s goals were at the last party, click here to see the conversations.

This week’s Mums’ Days Fit Club is all about motivation. At the launch party and during my research for this series, many many of you said how you really struggle with Motivation. Fitness motivation, motivation to eat well, etc. etc. and you wanted to know how I motivated myself to get out of bed at 5:30am 3 times a week for 6 weeks!

So I’m going to tell you two quick (ish) ways to get motivated today.

Before we get on to that, I’d like to thank everyone who made last week’s launch week so special. I was blown away by the launch party over on the Mums’ Days Facebook Page. It was literally like a party! Loads of buzz and motivation flying all over, not to mention wonderful prizes from Protest! So, thank you!!

On to food

I really love food. Like really, really. This post is all about what to eat to feel great and start to lose weight but not your sanity.

It includes a sample meal plan and ways to jazz up your food, some guidelines for portion control, and a list of healthy snacks!
