Ashley, like so many new mothers, felt fairly negative (ok, very negative) about her body after the birth of her daughter. She felt that it was taking her far too long to bounce back to her pre-baby shape. And this was taking its toll on her mental health. But determined to find a way through, Ashley used her training as a former Broadway dancer, celebrity fitness trainer and founder of Define London fitness studio to create a series of simple steps to help her regain her body confidence (even if she didn’t 100% regain her old shape).
Ashley can offer her top five tips with practical actions for each, including: Practice loving yourself; hone-in on the times when you are overwhelmed with negative body thoughts; slow down the race to bounce-back; ditch the scales; fuel your body, and recognise you are a work in progress.
