She Loves Outdoor Exercise

Skelton once opened up to The Sun about her experience taking weight loss pills, and revealed that she is done with those sort of weight loss methods. "We have to be very, very careful because in this day and age people want a quick fix."


She Mixes Up Her Workouts


Helen mixes up her workouts. "'I don't have any sort of set routine because my life is so unpredictable. I'm all about mixing it up. But I do go to the gym and run a lot. I've got big, strong legs," she told Women's Health.


She Exercises to Eat More

Helen doesn't work out to lose weight, but so she can eat more. "For me, exercise is an excuse to eat. Like most women I've had a bad relationship with food at some point in my life, but when I started doing these challenges, like kayaking down the Amazon and running marathons and things, my relationship with food completely changed. Now I can eat more, because I need it. It's like putting petrol in a car; if you don't put petrol in your car it's not going to go very far, is it? My favourite thing at the minute, is to go for a run and then have poached eggs and salmon. It's so good. When you exercise, food tastes so much better," she told Women's Health.


She Challenges Herself

Helen loves creating challenges for herself. "I always say to my friends that I can't wait until I'm not doing a challenge anymore and I can just do some pilates or some yoga, but as soon as I'm not doing something I find something else. I just had a few days off work so I've been in Cuba for 10 days on holiday and we did 800km on our bikes, just cycling me and my friend. She's a cyclist and I'm not really, but I just said I'll come along and it was good fun. Hard, but fun," she told the publication.
