I took up a fit and healthy lifestyle after I was involved in a car accident, fracturing my spine (whoops) and as a result I spent the following months sat on my sofa, off work and skipping meals when my medication made me feel ill and then binging on biscuits when I felt up to eating...(double whoops).
By the end of the year I'd put on one and half stone and I'd lost confidence in myself. I was also in pain, all the time, even after my return to work, and was growing tired of having to swallow pills all day so I sought the opinion of a physio who told me not to fear exercise and whilst it would hurt at first, it would eventually help me recover. SO when the new year rolled round I started walking, I changed my diet and looked forward. With my wedding in August I wanted to make sure I was in great shape, full of confidence and if I'm totally honest - looking hot.
