Love Chocolate?

Me too – its just that chocolate is not so helpful when it comes to making progress toward fat loss goals.

Yes, I too have cravings – especially around the holidays. But there is a way to enjoy chocolate and still achieve fat loss!

Fit Yummy Mummy Celebrates!


As you may have heard, Fit Yummy Mummy is celebrating a 4 year anniversary!


In celebration, I have completely revised the original Fit Yummy Mummy Fat Loss handbook that was released 4 years ago – November 2007 – including a new downloadable handbook, videos and extra fat loss resources. ClubFYM has also undergone many improvements all to enhance the level of coaching and support that is offered. I count my blessings every day to be a part of such an amazing community of women.

I have outlined below a very brief look back over the past 4 years of FYM  – many more events and success stories are posted right here on the Fit Yummy Mummy Blog. From the “Fit Mommy Success Stories” to my own personal post baby transformation.

Take a look around and see the impact Fit Yummy Mummy has made for women around the world.

Before I announce the winner of the Facebook Testimonial Busy Mom Workout Contest which was held to kick off the 4 Year Anniversary Celebration (and she will receive 12 months of Fit Yummy Mummy Workout DVDs)…

I wanted to take a moment to highlight some of the entries that were submitted to help recognize the body shaping, life changing results these women are experiencing through FYM since it was launched just 4 short years ago.

“I’ve done nothing except follow the 15 minute a day workout plan that Holly created plus follow her nutrition guidelines. I love how much food I get to eat every day compared to other programs; and I feel so strong! I’ve gained a lot of muscle in addition to losing fat, so I think my pictures show a more dramatic change than the pounds lost suggests. My advice is to make whatever sacrifice it takes to buy Holly’s e-book, join the club if at all possible, and jump in with both feet.”

3 Halloween Candy Tricks


DSC 0093 1024x680 3 Halloween Candy Tricks

REMINDER….Get RID of the Candy if your want to Get Rid of the Holiday Pounds

and no….this does not mean EAT it – as demonstrated by Tyler’s Rancor!

Halloween is the start of the Holiday Season as well as the onset of the dreaded “holiday weight gain”. How could it NOT be with all the sugary treats that accompany the celebrations.

It is quite common to hang on to the treats collected on Halloween night to have on hand as treats for the kids or even for you – time to stop TRICKING yourself.

First – our children do NOT need to be rewarded with candy.

Second – yes the Halloween candies you eat even when no one sees you still count – so if you are tired of the “stubborn pounds’ then now is the time to STOP adding TO them.

It’s time to Clear away the Candy so you can stay on the path to  Fat Loss.


Here are 3 Halloween Candy TRICKS to help you get started.

DSC 0078 680x1024 3 Halloween Candy Tricks

#1 Donate

- To the Military. Children can send extra candy along with a card to personally say “Thank you” and show appreciation for the service of our troops.

Check your area for specific programs or go online to

- To a Nursing Home. Take your collection of candies to your local nursing home. Sharing these sweet treats with the elderly is a great way to put a smile on their face.


#2 Decorate

Sort candies into the ones that will make the best decorations for holiday crafts – such as the creation of a gingerbread house or a candy wreath – spray with shellac to prevent tasting while creating.

Or just bag it all up and save for the next birthday party. Piles of candy are just the perfect filler for a party pinata.


Our Favorite of the 3 Halloween Candy Tricks

#3 Halloween Fairy

When the trick or treating is all over, spread the candy out on the kitchen table and have your child choose a few goodies he/she would like to keep and eat. Leave the rest of the candy in the middle of the kitchen table for the Halloween Fairy to take away. When your child wakes in the morning, the candy is gone and a surprise is sitting in its place.

No matter what you choose – choose to LOSE! Get rid of these empty calorie, holiday pound packing treats and give yourself the chance to be successful in staying fit this holiday season.

Give these 3 Halloween Candy Tricks A try.
