Do you consider yourself to have a healthy lifestyle?
Yes I do! I work out, I eat well and I know how to balance my own stress levels. In my opinion to have a healthy lifestyle you have to have a mind and body balance. I use Self Hypnosis on a regular basis for many different things; healthy eating, motivation to work out and also stress control...Its a fantastic tool.
Do you exercise regularly? If so, what do you do?
My personal trainer comes to my house twice a week since I got pregnant. I also do Pilates.
Do you do it willingly or begrudgingly?
Willingly actually - exercise creates endorphins, which in turn makes you feel good - so after my class I feel great and extra motivated for the day.
What time do you go to bed?
Usually around 11.30pm.
What time do you get up in the morning?
7am - but it could be earlier if we have business calls in other time zones.
What do you have for breakfast?
Porridge with blueberries or eggs any style… poached, scrambled, boiled…. I love them all!
We are on the go a lot with work - so I usually just grab a wrap when I'm out.
Barry my husband is very healthy and also a great cook, so he makes our dinner most nights. He will always make us something healthy but tasty.
I always bring food into work with me - usually cottage cheese and tomatoes for one snack and natural yogurt and blueberries for the other!
Do you take any supplements?
At the moment I am taking Pregnancy vitamins which include folic acid, Omega 3 & 6 and plenty of other vitamins!
How much water do you drink?
A litre a day - I carry a bottle around with me and we also have a water machine in the office.
Do you have a skincare routine?
Yes, I go to a dermatologist every 8 weeks and I also cleanse, tone, and moisturise every day.
I'm allergic to Shellfish. I have had a couple of nasty reactions where I have been hospitalised. So now I am very careful when I go out for dinner and always tell the waiter I'm allergic.
I adore Coffee! Cappuccinos, Nespresso, Americanos… anything goes. Although since I got pregnant I've moved onto decaf.
If I could change one thing about my lifestyle it would be …
If I could change anything it would be to have a little more free time! At the moment my husband and I are launching our new business so we do 12-14 hour days. The great thing about working with your family is that we are always together!
