‘Everything from the frowned facial expression, hair loss, exhaustion, and yes lastly my body shape that i wasn’t used to nor recognized. I looked at myself in the mirror & cried. Not because I was horrified,but because I didn’t know how I would find the strength or time to do anything to make a positive change. B U T I did!’

She continued: ‘I made a promise to my son Hudson that I would do anything possible to rebuild my physical strength to not only play chase, football, throw him up in the air as he laughs, but to also make sure he is protected always as it is just him and I. 

‘A year on, I can’t believe how my entire being has changed. Taking care of yourself from the inside out is so imperative!’

Going on to describe how she adopted a healthier lifestyle, she added: ‘From taking the right multivitamins (I take one with a higher iron content) to fueling your body with the right nutrition,creating the right mindset,allowing yourself to feel all the feels (you don’t have to be positive all of the time!) I was able to, and still continue to, rebuild the best version of myself for my little one! 

‘The first thing I tell my clients is ‘There is no expiration date on a lifestyle change’ & this is what I want to share with you. We are A L L a constant work in progress, & as long as our intentions are honest and pure,then the rest will follow… 

‘I know that summer time is here again, & we have the ‘summer body’ message thrown in our faces, but take from this that there are so many summers ahead, & winters & springs & falls!
