Then put it all back on again!
I've always been relatively active, health and weight conscious. But when I hurt my knee doing Shaun T's Insanity, its been a struggle jogging frequently so now I tend to walk as much as I can with the occasional jog. I went from walking around 60 minutes every morning, to increasing this to twice a day. Both morning and evening, it works plus I get to clear my head and often take a notebook with me if any ideas pop up.
I'm currently in Jamaica walking every day; there's a hill that is so steep, I don't need to do any squats. I have increased this to four uphill walks which up and down totals to eight!
Being a Private Cook and being around food, means that I have to reflect a healthy lifestyle. Given the food is so delicious here, I have to be careful. For me personally, I cannot eat and not exercise. If I say my focus is on Caribbean Cuisine with European and Plant based fusions, then I need to reflect a healthy lifestyle. How else would my clients book me for Private Dining? www.angellawilliams.co.uk
So, with the vegan lifestyle, I did this for 40 Days, lost 14lbs but then felt too skinny. It's a balance and if I feel that I have eaten too much or over indulged I will juice for a few days. My aim is really to get a two pac - six pack for me would be too excessive.
I do think being around food, is important to reflect good health - why then would anyone want to eat from you otherwise? If I say I love people and love cooking for people then I need to practice what I preach and not what I eat.
