"Meditating really changed my life when I first really discovered its power," she writes in her post. "One of the first times I tried it I got into a deep meditation & had a full out of body experience completely disconnected from my physical being and there was really no looking back from there. I decided then I would dedicate my life to becoming the healthiest happiest version of myself. Meditating for even just 10 minutes a day can help relieve stress, calm your mind & clear it of negative thoughts, and help you really focus on the present 🍃 There's no doubt in my mind meditation has helped me not just in daily life but even in my businesses & creativity."
Exercise Makes Her Feel Better
One of the ways Tammy motivates herself to workout is by reminding herself how good it makes her feel. "I honestly feel better when I get my workout in, less sluggish and I find it easier to keep up with my kids," she told New Idea. "I honestly feel better when I get my workout in, less sluggish and I find it easier to keep up with my kids. Whether it's a gym workout or HIIT home workout I always try to fit it in when I can."
She Works Out 3 to 4 Times Per Week
Tammy works out three to five days a week. Her sessions include a little cardio and heavy weights. "I will often do some workouts from my at home booty program – you only need dumbbells, or I will do a HIIT workout in the lounge room," she told New Idea.
Her Diet Is Clean and "Boring"
Tammy revealed to New Idea that she maintains a very clean diet. "For me lean protein like chicken breast, turkey and fish, really helps, but I find that with trying to build my booty I wasn't consuming the amount of protein I needed so supplements like protein shakes helped too," she says. "But I didn't supplement my meals with these it was always a combination of both. I needed to eat lots to build that area so I also ate lots of complex carbohydrates like brown rice, oatmeal, potatoes and healthy fats." For breakfast she usually eats oatmeal, infused with protein powder. Then, post workout, a protein shake, "and love to eat fish, chicken, turkey, beans and vegetables," she adds. "I've been trying to cut back on meat lately which I have found difficult. I usually end my day with oats and protein again. Boring I know!"
She Eats Every Few Hours
Another one of Tammy's diet secrets? She consumes tiny, but regular meals. "I eat every two to three hours," she told New Idea. Make a smoothie part of your day; it's a great snack. Use a nut milk and plant-based protein for best results, plus some frozen fruit, spinach and half a frozen banana. Not only do frozen bananas provide a luxurious creaminess and natural sweetness to smoothies, but studies have shown bananas to positively impact gut health by increasing the good bacteria in our bellies and helping to reduce bloat. Better yet, they're a cinch to prepare. I recommend freezing 10–12 at the beginning of each week. Carefully peel the banana so that it stays intact. (Do not make the mistake of freezing the banana with the peel on, which just basically gives your fruit a bullet-proof vest that you won't be able to penetrate.) Discard the peel and cut each banana in half. Place up to 12 peeled banana halves into a resealable plastic freezer bag. Remove the air from the bag and seal tightly.
