Your Questions Answered...

I opened my Instagram stories up the other day to questions from some of my followers... so here they are, with the answers!

(Here's a heads up of the questions, just keep scrolling to see my thoughts).

  1. What type of workout is better for mental health – something such as yoga or more intense HIIT classes?

  2. Should I work-out under stress?

  3. Is it better to eat before I work out, or after? And what food is best for a workout?

  4. Is it true when I have a cheat day, I can eat whatever I want?

  5. Any healthy veggie recipes you can recommend?

  6. Periods… How do you plan exercise and food around your periods – if at all?

On a basic level, this is up to you… you know your body best, and what makes you feel most relaxed! I’ve gone through times recently when all I wanted and needed to do was box. Box for anger, box for stress relief and box for anxiety. Stuck my earphones in and just smashed the boxing bag for a while. I’ve also gone through times where I felt that just taking some time to stretch and focus on my breathing was an achievement in itself, and far better than any other training option for a while!
