That last 5 kilos can be the hardest to eliminate. At this point, in your journey, you should be focusing on how you are feeling rather than what the scale says but we still like the mental 'win' of reaching the goal number that we set so here are some fun tips to get you to your target and how to celebrate the WIN!
Shake it up with a dance party - One of the best ways to burn calories and have fun at the same time is by dancing! Throw yourself a little dance party in the comfort of your own home or join a Zumba class to get your heart pumping and your body moving.
Spice things up with new healthy recipes - Eating healthy doesn't have to be boring! Try out new healthy recipes with lots of colourful veggies, lean proteins, and healthy fats. Make sure you are eating ENOUGH! Get creative and experiment with different spices and flavours to keep things interesting.
Join a fitness challenge with friends Challenge yourself and your friends to a fitness challenge. Set a goal together and motivate each other along the way. Whether it's hitting the gym together or going on a hike, having a support system will help keep you accountable and motivated.
Make it a game - Turn your weight loss journey into a game by setting challenges and tracking your progress. You could challenge yourself to drink 8 glasses of water a day or to try a new vegetable every day. You could even make a fun and colourful chart to track your progress and reward yourself with a prize when you reach your goal.
Back to basics- remember calories do count but want counts more is where the calories are coming from, move your body and include some weight resistance, get quality sleep and practice mindfulness techniques to reduce stress.
And last but NOT least reward yourself with a fun activity - Finally, once you've reached your goal, celebrate with a fun activity that you've wanted to do. Whether it's going on a short getaway, trying a new adventurous sport or simply going for some pampering, make sure to reward yourself for all your work and dedication to creating this new lifestyle.
