Why did you start your fitness journey and what is your motivation?
This is going to be a long answer!!! I was once 15 stone in weight!
But this weight was gained through trauma
I lost my first pregnancy at 5 months and I was already in maternity clothes. It was very traumatic and I had to deliver a baby naturally that had passed away.
Through upset I ate a lot of comfort food and then became pregnant with my first son. I ate huge amounts during this pregnancy because I thought that the food would keep the baby and pregnancy safe….
After I had Elijah I fell pregnant with my second child very quickly (they are only 20 months apart) I was huge, I was in size 18 clothes, so I went from a size 8 to a size 18 (If you would like to see photos let me know )
I remained very big for a few years and suddenly decided to do something about it….That’s what motivated me to get fit, I started running up and down my road, which turned into running round the block, which turned into 5k (I entered loads of races) Then half marathons. Then marathons. I still run and I love weight training, insanity, and HiTT.
If you could only do one work out for the rest of your life – what would it be?
Running because all you need is you and the road
What do you like most about the Pocket Sport items?
I absolutely love the shape of the bottoms as they are high waisted and stay put!
Who would play you in a film?
I would love to play alongside Tom cruises in “cocktail” in Elizabeth Shue’s role
Do you work out for mental or physical gain?
Both, I suffer from bad anxiety and OCD which I used to be medicated for. As soon as I started long-distance running I no longer needed the pills because if all the amazing endorphins exercise provides.
Physical gain too because I love to stay in shape and maintain. I also love my food so by exercising I can eat some naughty treats
If you could be stand in one place for a whole day, where would it be?
It would definitely be on Miami Beach, as long I had some shade and Pina Coladas on tap!
