To start with, Samantha reveals she kept a food diary of everything she ate and drank for the first two weeks to see what her pattens were.
“I get up before everyone anyway usual an hour before everyone else in the house so I’ll go for a run and I can usually fit in a workout as well,” she says. “I meal prep for the whole family.”
What a typical day looks like for Samantha
Breakfast: Coffee and a Healthy Mummy Tummy smoothie
Lunch: A smoothie with Protein Powder
Snacks: Snacks can range from Weet-Bix slice, yogurt, crackers and ham and cheese, pretzels and dark chocolate.
Dinner: Chicken or roast beef with salad or steamed veg. One Pot Lasagne, Butter Chicken and Honey Soy Chicken.
Workouts: I’m really liking the pilates and boxing workouts. I do a different one each morning to mix it up because I get bored easily.
