After I had my son, I continued running which kept me slim & fit, and it’s great for the head but last January I had braces put on which changed everything… I’ve always been a healthy enough eater but I was in such pain with braces, I could hardly eat at all and lost a stone!
I stopped running as I had no energy & didn’t want to get skinnier, I was scrawny! So I joined a gym & got personal trainer. He gave me diet plan, full of protein & I began doing more weights than cardio. I almost lived on smoothies full of kale , spinach etc & protein shakes made with almond milk. I have a female trainer now who is a bikini athlete and she has changed my body even more!
I never eat takeaways, would rather make a curry or pizza myself. My treats are chocolate or wine- definitely not giving them up! But I wouldn’t cancel out all the hard work in the gym by eating badly either, it’s just not worth it. I’m only half a stone lighter than I was but I’m now toned all over and feel really strong !
I’ll be 40 next year and intend on being in best shape pf my life for it!!
(Hands up who think she already looks AMAZING!!!! 🙂 )
