Carly Rowena in Two-Piece Workout Gear is "an Inspiration"

“You’re such an inspiration to me,” commented one of her followers.

Carly Rowena is motivating her followers to follow their dreams. In a new social media post the fitness influencer tries to demonstrate that all good things happened in her life when she actually did them with a "If I hadn't," post. "You're such an inspiration to me," commented one of her followers. How does she approach health and wellness? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


Meal Prep


Carly explains to The Sun how to "eat healthily" at work on a budget. "Food at work always feels the hardest. However, it doesn't have to be – it comes down to thought and preparation," she said. "My top tip is to pick one day in the week where you can take an hour out and meal prep. My go-to recipe is a one tray bake; pop your fish, meat or tofu into one corner and your veggies in the other, leave in the oven for 30 – 40 minutes and then serve into Tupperware boxes to keep you going through the week. If you hate the thought of having the same thing every day, over cook in the evenings to give yourself leftovers for lunch OR team up with a work colleague or friend and take it in turns to create lunch, meaning you can do it in bulk, change it up and share the cost."


And, Workout Prep

Carly also recommends workout prepping the night before. "No-one ever wants to leave the comfort of their bed in the morning. The best way to make sure it happens is to have your gym kit (including pants and socks!) set out ready, or even against the radiator to make it extra inviting to pop on during colder mornings," she recommends. "Also include a post-workout snack like a banana, smoothie or peanut butter sachet and have your proposed workout written down. If you know what you're going to do, you're less likely to talk yourself out of it and feel even more smug at the thought that you've worked out while everyone else is still asleep."


Cut Back on Sugar


Carly also has a plan for cutting back on sugar, which "will have huge health benefits," she says. However "cutting it out completely and aiming to go cold turkey will leave most of us craving and crashing," she says. "Top tip, instead of thinking about everything you have to cut out, start looking at what you can add in. I find the easiest way to make food changes is to focus on adding new ingredients and trying new recipes or snacks. That way over time the more processed or sugar based foods start to phase out and the good stuff stays in. For those of you who can't figure how to make a start, write a list of your three favorite foods or sugar based treats, then schedule in a weekly treat but also do research to find ways of making your own healthier alternative."



Carly enjoys surfing. "I booked myself a 6am surf while the family was sleeping & was so stoked to stand up & while i am so grateful for experiencing that, what actually made my heart sing was the mental freedom," she wrote in a social media post. "Having a conversation with a stranger, learning something new, letting of my mental load, not being interrupted or needed by anyone. It's been a long time since i've had nothing to worry about & truthfully, i've missed it. Thank you @jared.nica for your epic coffee-surf tips & @ranchosantana_nicaragua for hosting us."



Carly enjoys yoga and recently introduced classes on her app. There is a laundry list of reasons to do yoga, explains Harvard Health. "Researchers found that people who practiced yoga for at least 30 minutes once a week for at least four years, gained less weight during middle adulthood," they said. "People who were overweight actually lost weight. Overall, those who practiced yoga had lower body mass indexes (BMIs) compared with those who did not practice yoga. Researchers attributed this to mindfulness. Mindful eating can lead to a more positive relationship with food and eating."
