I’ve actually met Joss before at a photoshoot, and she is incredibly beautiful – photos don’t do her justice! I’m always interested to know how models workout and what their diets are like (and I know you guys are too). So I thought I would find out what Joss does to stay fit and healthy, and get a bit of insight into a model’s workout and diet routine.
I’ve never been a huge fan of gyms or super intense/vigorous workouts. I’ve done pilates for years now which I love, and I also love walking as I can really see and feel the benefits from it. My boyfriend also runs an outdoor bootcamp which I go to about once a week to get my cardio and higher intensity workout in.
PS you guys know that I love walking too! Read this blog post to find out why walking is so great for slimming down your legs.
I aim to workout 3-4 times per week, but this changes depending on how free or busy I am!
I’ve never stuck to any strict diets and I am lucky enough to have a pretty fast metabolism. Basically, food is my life. I LOVE food. I try to avoid foods high in complex carbs as much as possible and I aim to eat real food most of the time. I don’t eat a lot of processed food or excessive amounts of sugar, but if I have a craving for something I will treat myself – everything in moderation 😉
I can’t get enough of turkey rissoles, I make them all the time. I’ve never been a huge salad person, so I prefer to eat my protein with roast or steamed veggies. If I have a sweet breakfast craving, I’ll make the 2 ingredient (banana and eggs) pancakes with some added cinnamon.
I loovee ice cream, that’s definitely one of my guilty pleasures. I also love a burger and fries and all Italian food!
I don’t change my diet massively before shoots, but I definitely cut back on carbs (this makes a big difference for me, fast), I eat as clean as possible the week before the shoot and try to drink lots of water! I also get bloated very easily, so a trick of mine is to drink apple cider vinegar in a glass of water the night before a shoot which gets rid of the bloating by morning!
My motivation comes from the feeling I get when I’m fit and healthy from the inside out, especially mentally. I love the ‘buzz’ after a good workout, and I love feeling light, energetic and clear minded when I’m being good to my body. I also need to be doing something I enjoy, otherwise its really difficult for me to find motivation.
I would say not to put too much pressure on themselves to spend hours in the gym or exhaust themselves to achieve a particular body shape. Find what works for you and your body, and most importantly something you enjoy, and stick to that. Don’t underestimate the benefits of simple exercise like walking, and don’t forget that diet is just as important when working towards a specific goal.
