My recent shoot was for Men's Fitness magazine. I was really flattered to be asked to do this as on a personal level it shows how far I have come with my fitness journey. Back when I was glamour modelling I was never allowed to train like I wanted to as those types of magazines didn't want the strong, athletic female look. They wanted the curvy, soft glamour look (rightly so too!) I had a blast with those magazines but when I put that part of my career behind me 5 years ago I was free to change my body as I pleased and feeling strong & healthy has ALWAYS been something I've wanted to achieve. Now I do, and its the best feeling ever! As well as being the face of USA PRO, Having my photos and interviews coming out in one of the leading fitness magazines makes me so happy & so proud! My will power, determination & dedication combined with regular ass kicking from my trainer Olly Foster & supplements from Reflex Nutrition have all played a part in my fitness journey, and you know what the most exciting thing for me is?
This is merely the beginning.... ;)
I had to really, really force myself to train today. I did my INSANITY Pure cardio at home at 3pm. I'm usually in and out of the gym by 10am. That's how unmotivated I was. Plus I was still feeling rough as I was out on sat night. I hardly ever drink now so when I occasionally do, I have terrible hangovers 😷 it would have been easy for me to slob on the couch & not train but I was determined to NOT be that person. I wasn't going to start the week by missing my training session. Yes it was harder then usual, yes I didn't enjoy it as much as usual but I did it! I feel so much better for it too. As the saying goes "pull your shit together and go work out" it really does work wonders 💪
I loved those dungarees 😊
