A confession…

Twins are on the WayI have a confession to make. At this very moment I’m not the Fit Mommy, that I would like to be and that I know I can become. As I stated before somewhere and as you can probably see of my photos, I have some extra “baby” weight I really need and want to lose. I know it will help my overall health and my self-confidence a lot!

So the moment has come, when I’m saying WHAT’S ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

Starting tomorrow, I’m setting out on a quest…



How to Lose 20 Pounds in 30 Days

Starting point

I must say I’m not so familiar with measuring my body parts in order to follow the progress of losing weight and shaping up. In the past I only used my scale to monitor my weight, every other aspect I only monitored subjectively, by taking a look at me in the mirror and asking myself, how do I feel physically and mentally. But I’m willing to do it now just for illustration.Lose 20 lbs in 30 days

So here are my current DAY #0 MEASURES:

  • Weight: 66 kg (145,5 lbs)
  • Waist: 99 cm (39 inch)
  • Thighs: 58 cm (23 inch)
  • Hips: 104 cm (41 inch)

Should I feel embarrassed? πŸ™‚ I think not. The reality is that having three small children, among them twins, can be very challenging for some time. But now it’s time to take care of myself some more.


Weight Loss Plan for a Busy Mommy

Based on my previous experience with dieting and fitness I have made out a Weight Loss Plan for Busy Mommy for me (and it should work out for you too, as it is quite easy to follow πŸ™‚ ).

I’m quite curious how will it end up, although I’m almost certain I will be able to meet my Goals using this Plan!

You can imagine that I don’t have too much extra time to take long exercising lessons in nearby town, to drive there or to cook too much extra food for me only. So I developed some easy to follow and by my experience very efficient steps.

I will be explaining every single step more in upcoming post, so stay tuned. πŸ˜‰


EATING PLAN:Balanced Food Pyramide

1. drink juice of one lemon with warm water every morning to wake up your digestion

2. eliminate sugar, sweets and all kinds of unhealthy snacks

3. drink 2,5 liters of water a day

4. reduce size of your usual meals by half

5. eat 5 meals a day

6. do NOT eat your children’s leftovers

Working out and Bonding 2


1. do stretch, power and balance exercises for 20 minutes every day

2. run 5 km (3 miles) 3 days a week

3. go for an active walk 2 days a week

Measuring Success!

I’m not a fan of measuring, but if I want to do it right, I will have to have some focal points. I will do the measuring every 5 days just to keep track. Also I will be posting and sharing my progress with all of you.


Weight MeasuringWhat will I be measuring?

Weight and width of my waist, thighs and hips. I find these areas to be most compromised πŸ™‚ in my case. But I can imagine I’m not the only one with this problem… πŸ™‚


OK, maybe I’ll have to get myself a digital scale someday soon … πŸ˜‰




My Personal GOALS

Based on my previous experience with losing fat and building some muscles I defined my personal Goals of this project.



  • Weight: 57 kg (125,5 lbs)
  • Waist: 89 cm (35 inch)
  • Thighs: 54 cm (21,3 inch)
  • Hips: 98 cm (38,6 inch)


I’m more than sure that I’ll be able to shape up in 30 days following my plan, accompanied by my other everyday activities as a busy mommy. And I will become the FIT MOMMY I deserve to be!

Let's Do It!

    Reducing the size of your usual meals by half, doing exercises every day and running 5 km or 3 miles 3 days a week, certainly it will help you reach your goal.You’re very healthy if you will resist running 5km.Great!

      Hi, Dorina!
      I have done something similar before. And I know it is not so tough as it seems at first glance.
      Although I have very different circumstances now, with the family and small children and so, so this is surely a challenge for me. The major question is if I will be able to stick to the plan! πŸ™‚

      This plan is made for me, so I added activities that I know I am able to preform. But along the way I’ll be posting even more material, even total beginners can use and follow. Welcome at any time, Dorina! I hope you will find something interesting for you too!

      Thanks for taking your time and best to you!

    I had to laugh when I got to #6. do NOT eat your children’s leftovers. I am sure that is a quarter of the calories I consume in a day! My husband and I are trying to eat healthier this month, he was just diagnosed with Sleep Apnea. I like your plan, will you be posting recipes at all?

    1. Spela (Post author)

      Hi, Emma πŸ™‚

      It’s nice to hear, I managed to make you laugh πŸ™‚ Eating leftover has been my habit too, and after 4 years it is really enough of this nonsense!

      And even nicer to hear, that you and your husband are trying to eat healthier food. Yes, I do intend to post recipes in the food category, but I just don’t have enough time to do it right now. I have some issues at home, that have higher priority. However I did post some menus, you can read them here , here and here.
      I promise to post one recipe today! πŸ™‚

      Thanks, Emma, for dropping by and commenting. πŸ™‚
