how do you eat?
my eating habits are usually pretty good & i tend to be quite hard on myself. during the week i’m a model student but i indulge a little on weekends, particularly if i’ve had a few drinks the night before.
what do you eat?
i eat fairly sensibly – always plenty of fruit & veggies. i’ve never really loved heavy carbs so they don’t sneak into my diet too often. if i’m really craving something, i’ll let myself have it. i’m sweet over savoury always, so i try to be mindful of that.
mangoes, grapes, dried fruit & nuts, absolutely all seafood, cheese & dips definitely count as dinner, avocado & vegemite is a winning combination.
strong coffee (double shot skim latte, yes please!) red wine (& white!), vodka soda if i’m out & a peppermint tea after dinner.
dark chocolate, coconut ice cream, chai lattes, brie cheese & medjool dates.
my goal is always to try to be a slightly fitter, healthier version of myself. i work hard on my fitness but there is always room for improvement. my philosophy is do something active every day & try not to stress if an extra row of choccie finds its way into your belly (cocoa is good for you, right?).
