She Works Out
"Exercise can help prevent excess weight gain or help maintain weight loss. When you engage in physical activity, you burn calories. The more intense the activity, the more calories you burn," says the Mayo Clinic. "Regular trips to the gym are great, but don't worry if you can't find a large chunk of time to exercise every day. Any amount of activity is better than none at all. To reap the benefits of exercise, just get more active throughout your day — take the stairs instead of the elevator or rev up your household chores. Consistency is key."
Her Partner is Supportive
Back when she was unhappy about her pregnancy weight, she said: "[Andy] doesn't take much notice, he just says to me when I moan: 'Ah, am I fat?' He's like: 'If you don't like something, do something about it.' He's good in that way because obviously he trains every day of his life, his body's amazing. So if I moan and complain he's just like: 'Get up the gym, do yoga, do something about it'. So he won't suffer moaning. He does all that making me [feel] nice but.. When you don't look nice but he says you do; [Then] I say: 'No but tell me the truth' and he says: 'Yeah but if I tell you the truth you have a go at me!'" she told the Daily Mail.
This is How She Lost Her Baby Weight a While Back
Billi wanted to go back to heri pre-pregnancy weight. "I've been doing it through a combination of eating healthily and exercising. I had to have a cesarean, so wasn't able to do anything for six weeks after giving birth while I healed. Once I was given the all clear, I started working with a personal trainer who specialises in post-partum training – I work out with her two to three times a week," she told the Daily Star. "I've always been a really fit and active person so I found it really frustrating going back to the gym and realising that I couldn't even do one sit up! My trainer explained that it would take time to get my muscles back and gradually over time I've been able to regain my fitness."
She Had a Cancer Scare
She once wrote: "I have had some major surgery removing a Tumour in my neck that I found some weeks ago due to a visible lump, constantly loosing my voice and breathing restrictions. After many tests and biopsy only option was to have the lump removed along with my Thyroid… I've been waiting two weeks to get the results hoping it's wasn't the 'C' word and today I got them results and got the all clear."
She Loves to Play With Her Kids
"With summer in full swing and seemingly unlimited opportunities for kids to play, it's a good time to remember that play isn't just fun — it's the foundation for healthy growth. Play strengthens bones, muscles, lungs and the heart, and can help reduce obesity, diabetes and high cholesterol," says the Mayo Clinic. "In addition to the positive physical benefits of play, play also is important for emotional and mental development. Play helps build confidence — think of the boost kids get when they go down the big slide or learn to pump on a swing — and can teach them how to problem solve."
