What makes you feel your best? When the kids are happy, and I feel in control at work.

How do you find balance in the chaos? Thinking about solutions rather than problems and managing my stress levels.

What’s your favourite way to move your body? Walking but I do exercise each morning between 20 – 24 minutes.

What motivates you to stay on track?  Staying fit and healthy for my kids and valuing my body more as I age.

What healthy habits are you taking up in 2024? Continue to exercise at least 5 days a week and keeping alcohol to weekends. Freshly pressed juice & ginger + turmeric.

What’s one non-negotiable you do for your health each day? Exercise, eat healthy and sneak in chocolate.

What is the last thing you did that made you proud? Saying no to something that I didn’t have capacity to do.

What’s the one thing about Fresh Start that helps you the most?  Making it easy to eat healthy.
