She Has No Time For Haters
McCann says that she does not let body shamers or social media haters get her down. In 2016, she posted a video to her Snapchat addressing some photos that were taken of her on vacation. "I understand it's not the best angle, I understand there probably is a bit of cellulite, but I can't help it. I'm standing strong, I'm defiant, I'm not going to let these people get me down. So I'm going to get my glad rags on and I'm going to get to the TV Choice Awards!"
She Does A Lot Of Different Sports
McCann does a lot of different activities to stay in shape. She told the Daily Star that she does a lot of different sports to stay active. "I'm part of a netball team and I never let them down, I also had a badminton match that night and I'm training for the half marathon." Ed Laskowski, M.D., co-director of the Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine Center, "offers the following tips for marathon runners just prior to the big race," says the Mayo Clinic:
- "The day before the marathon, consume extra calories, especially high-carbohydrate foods such as bread, cereal, rice, pasta, and/or potatoes.
- To enable fluid absorption, start drinking fluids at least four hours before exercise.
- Most marathoners find they perform better if they consume carbohydrates during the race. Sports drinks, bars and gels are good options."
She's All About Balance
McCann opened up about her diet to the Belfast Telegraph. She says that while she tries to eat healthy, she's also a big believer in balance, and doesn't like to deprive herself. "For me, it's all about making healthy choices, not starving yourself or denying yourself every day. I try to make healthy choices but it's not like I cut out carbs or alcohol or Chinese takeaways completely because they are things that I absolutely love."
She's Kind To Herself
After becoming a mom, McCann says that she didn't try to put pressure on herself to lose the baby weight, or look like other women. She told The Sun that she was kind to herself during her weight loss process. "You can feel stronger, more amazing and more confident when you are kinder to your body. Women need to stop comparing themselves to others — whether that's their weight, their figure, their wardrobe or even how they parent. I think mums are the worst for it. We are all so desperate to compare ourselves to other mums when really we are all doing an amazing job by ourselves and we should celebrate that."
She Works Out Regularly
McCann broke down her wellness secrets and routines to Women's Health. She says that she aims to work out at least four days a week, and rests three days a week. "I try to exercise four days a week within reason – if life, my daughter or work commitments get in the way it goes down to three. But that's a minimum."
