Try a Combination of Yoga and HIIT
Casey told Sustain Health that her go to workout is a combination of two popular workouts. "I would never say it was easy but it was fun because I did it doing something I love – Yoga! Actually a combination of yoga and high intensity exercises that I called Yoga Blitz," she explained. "The secret was that combination of simple yoga poses mixed with intense fat burning moves like jumping 'Goddess squats."
Casey also suggests counting calories. "I followed a calorie controlled diet because as we all know no exercise can work off a bad diet," she told Sustain Health about how she lost weight after having her second child.
Don't Give Up
When asked about her top tip for weight loss, Casey had a blunt response. "I would say 'don't quit' is my number one tip," she said. "I think most people can stick to a weight loss plan for a few days or even a couple of weeks, but for it to really work, you have to make it part of your life. So choose something you enjoy – like I did, have a plan and if you fall off the wagon – just make sure that you don't go 'oh well that's it I've blown it, I'll just give in. I've had one donut, so I may as well have 6!!' Just say 'tomorrow is a new day and I'm going to get back on it."
Make Healthy Eating Your Lifestyle
Casey stresses the importance of fitting healthy eating into your lifestyle. "So if you always go out at the weekend, have a few drinks and some junk food, then plan for that, so that you really cut back during the week and save the calories up for your days off," she told Sustain Health. "You have to make sure it's part of your lifestyle otherwise if you just go back to your old habits, the weight will slam back on super quick. So yes have a night out but the next day rein it in a bit to make up for the calories you've 'spent'. Or do an extra workout."
Do Short Bursts of Exercise
Casey is a big fan of shorter but intense workouts. "It doesn't make any difference in terms of your fitness (in fact HIIT – High Intensity Interval Training) is more effective than aerobic (slow and steady) exercise but I love working out in short bursts because it fits round my baby Florence's nap time!" she said.
Planning Is Key
Casey also stresses the importance of choosing a diet and fitness plan and getting organized. "I really believe if you fail to plan, you plan to fail!" she said. "So decide, then shop for your diet plan and schedule in your diary when you are going to workout – set alarms on your phone if that helps. And consistency is the key – it doesn't matter if you only lose a pound a week as long as you keep going you will get there in the end."
It's Okay to Cheat
Casey is all about the occasional cheat day. "I definitely go out and have cheat meals – I love a steak with chips and of course a gorgeous pudding – like a chocolate mousse!" she said.
