Quick Tips to Getting Started

What you NEED to Know to go from
Frumpy to Fit and Fabulous

Your Fit Yummy Mummy "Quick Tips" beginner's guide

Each pound of fat on our body consists of 3500 calories, so for each pound of fat you want to lose you must burn 3500 calories. That is burning an extra 500 calories a day for a week just to lose one pound of fat.

Healthy fat loss is about 1-2 pounds of body fat each week.

Eating 500 less calories a day is much easier than burning off 500 calories a day.

Weight loss without exercise will only lead you to a dead end as you will have to starve yourself to lose 1 to 2 pounds each week...bringing your metabolism to a screeching halt and causing you a tremendous amount of undo stress, uncontrollable cravings and more mood swings than anyone can handle.

Exercise not only boosts your metabolism and burns fat, it energizes you and is the only way to ReShape your Mommy Body.

So - Yes you begin by MOVING!

And starting off at a pace that is doable for your busy schedule by implementing the Fit Yummy Mummy short burst workouts and intervals.

But you also need to be aware of how the food you put in your body will affect the exercise's ability to get you noticeable results.

SO - as far as EATING goes....The best place to start is with a food log.

Write down what you eat - you will become aware - and you will make changes on your own before I even begin!

Finally, know it's all a matter of replacing the "not-so-supportive" habits we have, with habits that will cause us to feel good, look good and do more for ourselves and with our families.

Life WILL become more blissful and rewarding!

Sure I've been accused of being overly optimistic....but what
harm can that do?

What harm can feeling "yuck" all day long do?

Weigh out the pros and cons (take the time to write it out to have more of a dramatic impact) and ...oh my - the choice is obvious.

I wish you the best as you begin I have no doubt you become a Fit Yummy Mummy success story!
