Christina Trevanion in Bathing Suit is "More Fulfilled"
Christina Trevanion is showing off her slimmed-down figure in a bathing suit and revealing all of her diet and fitness secrets. The Bargain Hunt star rocks a swimsuit in one of her latest social media posts, throwing her fans into a frenzy. "It may sound rather naive, but it has taken me 41 years to realise that physical well being is equally as important as your mental health. My 30's were spent running around making sure that everyone else was ok, being a parent and wife, with a fledgling business and a tv career meant that I had very little time to focus on anything other than every day survival. As a result for over a decade I completely forgot about 'me'. In my 40's I have finally realised that, rather than putting myself at the bottom of the pile, I really needed to start looking after myself too," she wrote in the Instagram caption. "I can safely say that I have never felt healthier, happier, stronger or more fulfilled… long may it continue! Stop running around pleasing everyone else and make time to look after YOU folks, self care is critical and it's revolutionary!" She then explained how she got into the best shape of her life. How does she stay so fit?

She Prioritizes Self-Care
Christina maintains that prioritizing self-care is key when it comes to taking control of your health. "Let me be clear, self care isn't about being selfish, it means taking care of yourself so that you can be healthy, you can be well, you can do your job, you can help and care for others, you can be the person you want to be, and you can do all the things you need to and want to accomplish in a day," she writes in the post.
She Exercises Daily
Christina revealed that she works out every day. "Personally, I have worked towards this by taking time every day to exercise," she says. In this post she added the hashtag "sunrise yoga" – as yoga is one of her go-to workouts. Physical activity is anything that gets your body moving. Each week adults need 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity and 2 days of muscle-strengthening activity, according to the current Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans
She Put Down the Bottle
Christina also reveals that she "ditched booze" to get in shape, "apart from the odd g&t, and a glass of wine with friends." Why is this a good idea? Not only does drinking leave you with a hangover, making it less likely that you will exercise the next day, but alcohol is filled with empty calories.
She Changed Her Diet
Christina also maintains that "eating healthily," helped her achieve all of her diet and fitness goals. Most nutritionists recommend cutting calories for weight loss.
She Just Says "No"
One thing Christina has learned on this journey? "Realising that saying 'no' to things, in order to preserve this hard fought equilibrium is completely acceptable," she writes. "Saying no to things that I would ordinarily have said yes to but without the associated guilt trip has taken me a long time to achieve, both in a professional and personal capacity. I have finally realised my own boundaries and have started to respect them, rather than ignore them for the sake of pleasing other people."
