Most Frequently Asked Fitness Questions …

How Often Do You Workout? I train 5 times each week. (This is usually 3 runs and 2 workouts.) My rest days are usually Tuesday and Friday. If I’m training for a race then I will usually drop a workout to focus my energy on my run days, especially if the weekend run is long one. I always include a lot of mobility and stretching too. Life is often very busy, but I prioritise my running and my workouts because I realise how important my health is. I need to move for both my body and mind to feel good. What’s the best way to lose belly fat? Now this is a question that I get asked a lot! I’m sure that people would love for me to say that there is a flat tummy secret or quick and easy solution, but unfortunately that’s not true. When it comes to reducing body fat there are lots of things to consider. Exercise, diet, sleep, stress, genetics, all play a part. It’s important to focus on all …

Active For 2

Cosmo Influencer Awards 2018

Last night I arrived at Kensington Palace Gardens to attend the Cosmopolitan Influencer of the Year Awards. I was nominated for the ‘Best Health & Wellbeing’ award. The invitation said ‘dress to impress’ so I thought I’d better swap my running shoes for something a bit more glamorous. Suit & shoes from Topshop.  The room was filled with so many inspiring & creative people, I was so happy to be included and to be nominated. Some of my favourite internet change makers and girl bosses were there too, including Emma Gannon, who is literally adored by everyone that she meets. Chidera Eggerue, aka the Slumflower, a young woman that is making waves, everywhere she goes. Alice Liveing, she is small but mighty! and is just full of good energy.

There were eight ladies nominated for the Heath & Wellness award, so I was absolutely buzzing! (and mega shocked) when the Editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan, Farrah Storr, …
