    Fit Yummy Mummy, Healthy Habits

    I've been building up over the past week for the new Fit Yummy Mommy challenge that starts on Monday.

    Part of it has been to start working the habits that I will need back into my life after taking a break over the holidays.

    This is one of the things that I love about the challenges, it keeps us on track when we stray.

    There is nothing wrong with letting loose for a bit, the problem is that it always seems hard to those good habits back.

    So I've been starting slowly by adding one a day.

    Here are a few things that you can do to get your feet wet before the challenge officially starts.

    DAY 1. Get in the habit of filling your water bottle or glass before you sit down to the computer so that you are drinking at least one a day. Start today.

    DAY 2. Get moving. Put aside 5 minutes tomorrow to go for a brisk walk or to do some exercise of some kind. The day after, make it 10 minutes. Do another 10 the day after and the day after that? The Challenge begins. Don't worry, if you join the challenge at that point you will be doing Holly's workouts – they take 15 – 20 minutes or less. Watch for how you feel when you've finished moving your bod… 

    DAY 3. Eat some fruit. Instead of reaching for crackers, granola bars, cookies or what ever other quick snack you may have hiding in your cupboard – bypass that and head for the crisper section of your fridge or walk directly to your fruit bowl. Grab an apple, a clementine, a pear or a banana. Or grab a few of them and make a fruit salad or just eat them as they are (I LOVE to cut up my favourite fruits – 1 -2  of them – and stir them into some vanilla yogurt. I always include a banana if I can. It's decedant – just as good or better than any dried out packaged thing of any kind!

    DAY 4. Time to jump in and join the challenge! You can use the first week to orientate yourself – get to know the program – take it a step at a time. And get to know the other FYM Challengers. You won't find a more supportive group. Holly will be posting daily videos that are SOOOO helpful – as well as other tools that help.


    I created a daily tracking sheet for myself during the last challenge that helped me so much. Let me know if you join the challenge – you can add a comment below – and I will send you the download so that you can use it too. It's very simple, quick and easy to use.


    Holly is opening the challenge for registration today although it doesn't officially start until Monday.

    I am going to register today – can't wait!

    It is definitely the time of year to be getting back on board with a Fit Yummy Mummy 12 Week Challenge – I am counting down the days to being 10lbs lighter and 12 weeks stronger!

    Holly gives us assignments throughout the challenge, today it is to examine perfection and the effect that it has on our results – and how it can more likely than not cause more trouble than it saves. I am looking at that today.

    How about you. Has perfection ever brought you down in your efforts to lose weight or get healthier?
