She Starts the Day with ACV

Ferne starts the day off with a healthy shot. "I wake up and have a shot of symprove mixed with a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar followed by my Herbalife thermo tea and morning breakfast," she told Express UK

Ferne emphasizes the importance of refueling your body after exercise with a major dose of protein. "I drop Sunday to nursery and exercise then have a protein shake within half an hour of exercising," she told Express about her after sweat session ritual. 


She Snacks


Ferne is all about regular snacks. "I have a mid morning snack – this could be anything from a boiled egg, handful of nuts or a banana – then I will have a healthy lunch, such as a salad, wholemeal wrap or a soup," she told Express. "I have a mid-afternoon protein snack then I will cook dinner which could be anything. I am a proper foodie and love experimenting in the kitchen."


She Hydrates

Ferne also understands the importance of hydration, especially when she is very active. "Everyday I try to drink 2.5 litres of water and I aim to do 10,000 steps which I track via my Fitbit," she told Express. 


Fitness Is Her Priority

"I make exercise and keeping fit a priority. If I didn't I wouldn't do it," Ferne admitted to Express. "Having something that is flexible around being a parent and work is key, which is why my online fitness and wellbeing platform Embodyment fits perfectly into my busy life. It slots in around your kids as you can do it anywhere, anytime."


She Mixes Up Her Wokrouts

Ferne maintains variety with exercise, which prevents her from getting bored. "For me, to keep engaged I have to mix things up, from yoga, going for a walk, a HITT workout or dance workout. Variety is key," she told Express. 


She Has Cheat Meals and Days

Since Ferne eats healthy most of the time, she explained to the Belfast Telegraph that she allows herself cheat meals. "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. You have to treat yourself or else I think you'd be miserable," she said. "As long as you're exercising and making good choices for the majority of the time then why not give yourself some cake if you want it?"


She Takes the Weekend Off

Ferne is much more relaxed during the weekends. However, she still makes sure to stay active. "Of course I have Netflix days, but my weekends are very active with walking, playing with Sunday and other tasks. On weekends I read, enjoy myself and don't go to the gym. I have my daughter to look after so there's no way I can exercise. I think if you stick to your rest days then you won't fall off the wagon in the week. I do the same with alcohol – I don't drink unless I've got an event in the week, then have a wine at the weekend," she told Women's Health.
