Jockey Leonna Mayor Shares Swimsuit Photo of "Wintery Mornings"
Leonna Mayor is heating up Dubai in her bathing suit. In a recent social media post the "world's sexiest jockey" shows off her amazing body in a bathing suit while soaking up the sun at a resort. "Love wintery mornings," she wrote on one of her Instagram Stories. How does the 32-year-old approach health and fitness? Celebwell rounded up some of her top lifestyle habits.
She Has to Fluctuate Her Diet for Her Hob
Leonna often needs to weigh just 112 pounds to be allowed to ride, so she has to alter her diet. "It is weird having to adjust your weight for different races but it becomes second nature," she told The Daily Star. "It makes dinners out difficult and, after a long day, the last thing I feel like doing is cooking a complicated meal."
She Eats Healthy Most of the Time
"I'm usually pretty healthy and just avoid heavy foods like pasta and rice," says Leonna. However, she sometimes skips breakfast and lunch and just has sugary tea and biscuits."I eat a lot of soup and treat myself to a takeaway if I get a win!"
Leonna is a reader. "Engrossed earlier in the most amazing book," she captioned an Instagram post. One Harvard study published in Social Science & Medicine found that people who read books regularly had a 20% lower risk of dying over the next 12 years compared with people who weren't readers or who read periodicals.
She Takes Nature Walks
Leonna takes nature walks. "Gorgeous few pony days with @vanessa_binnie_ryle walking and talking our way around the countryside," she captioned a post. "Nothing better then getting out in the fresh air with friends." Going for a daily walk can be a game changer in terms of exercise, especially at a brisk speed. One study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that walking at a brisk pace for about 30 minutes a day led to a reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, dementia and death, compared with walking a similar number of steps but at a slower pace.
Leonna claims that drinking wine helps her drop water weight. "One of the lads suggested a couple of glasses of wine the night before a race to dehydrate," she told The Daily Star. "Red wine, in moderation, has long been thought of as heart healthy," says the Mayo Clinic. "The alcohol and certain substances in red wine called antioxidants may help prevent coronary artery disease, the condition that leads to heart attacks."
She Takes Baths
"If I need to lose a pound or so, I sweat in a hot bath," Leonna added about one of her other habits. How can baths do your body and mind good? They have been linked to better sleep and even found helpful to minimize anxiety and depression. One recent study even found that they may even boast cardiovascular benefits.
