I cannot stay inactive for more than a few days, so I always pack trainers, leggings and sports bras and I always exercise first thing in the morning. Working out is a core part of my life, it does not stop when I go on holiday, quite the opposite as I want to feel amazing and have fun so I want to move even more! When on holiday I love to explore and experiment with other sports that I don’t usually do at home. I love to ski, hike, swim & paddle but I also like running and doing a quick WOD, anything that can get the blood flowing, the heart beating & the sweat dripping. Next year I want to learn to surf!
I always wish there was more time in the day as there is something incredibly satisfying about feeling that you have achieved a lot. If you want to be successful in your job, and also on a personal level, you need to put the hours in. You can have both, but you need to wake up early! Appreciate the early-morning stillness, get out, do something you love, workout, refuel, do your emails. By 9am, you feel on top of the world.
Sleep (although to be honest, I have always felt that sleeping was a total waste of time - but it's not!)
When I'm on holiday, I eat the same way as when I am at home other than a bit more of eating out and drinking wine (I only drink Burgundy though, where I am from).
Always savoury over sweet snacks. I am obsessed with the green olives from Barley & Sage, almonds, peppers and hummus & again, oat milk latte!
Figure out a way to be better at anything you do.
I love food and I exercise a lot, so I tend to eat nutritious and whole foods but still eat what I love. I don’t eat much sugar at all and I stay away from all the “healthy raw, GF, DF deserts” trending on IG as they never taste like a crêpe with homemade apricot jam #yesplease!
I listen to my body and stop eating when I feel full. I also drink warm water throughout the day. I have never felt as good in my body as I feel now having had Inès 4 months ago, and I think it has a lot to do with how I eat as opposed to what I eat. Since I have been on maternity leave I find that I am taking the time to sit down and share meals with people I love more regularly, and being less stressed in general has made a world of difference to my digestion and energy.
Get involved and surround yourself with people who are driven. If you put passion & commitment into everything you do, if you have skin in the game, you will be buzzing!
