Strictly Come Dancing's Dianne Buswell Shares Swimsuit Photo of Her With Joe Sugg
Dianne Buswell is channeling the Little Mermaid – in her swimsuit. In a recent social media post the Strictly Come Dancing star shows off her amazingly fit figure in a green bathing suit as she swims with Joe Sugg, with many of her followers likening her image to Ariel, the mermaid. "Ariel is real maybe I was right as a kid," commented one. "Gorgeous lady," added another. How does the Australian dancer maintain her fit physique? Celebwell rounded up her top health habits.
She Starts the Day with Coffee
"I love to wake up early as I love the mornings," Dianne tells Women's Health. "I'll have my morning coffee outside – there's something about fresh air in the morning that wakes me up makes me feel good."
She Fuels Up with Breakfast
After coffee, Dianne prepares her first meal of the day. "I just get so excited for breakfast! I love a nice, warming breakfast," she told Women's Health. Oatmeal is her favorite. "But when I say porridge I put, like, the works in it. I'll add chia seeds, blueberries, walnuts, cinnamon…I go to town!" She also loves "a nice [slice of] toast with avocado."
She Does Fasted Workouts
Dianne rises and exercises. "I like to wake up and do something straight away," she said at Women's Health Live Virtual. "I like to get myself moving, purely for the fact it motivates me to do more during the day," she added. "My frame of mind at the moment is, wake up, get something done, whether it's yoga or – I have a little treadmill here – a 15-minute walk whilst I'm watching the morning news. I just try to do something that gets me moving."
Obviously, one of Dianne's main forms of fitness is dance. "The physical, mental and emotional health benefits of dance are endless. But as a dancer I don't just dance, I do a lot of other things that help my body get dance-fit and dance-ready, " she told The Independent. "Dancing is definitely enough to keep you fit, but if I just keep on dancing and dancing and dancing, I'm using the same muscle groups and I have to do different things in order to engage different muscles, so I don't get injured and I can do this for a longer time."
She Eats "As Healthily" As She Can
Dianne avoids chicken and red meat, but does eat fish. One of her go-to meals is ratatouille. "I eat as healthily as I can – but I'm only human and I love my chocolate. I still have a drink every now and then, so it's not like I don't do any of that stuff, but I do realize the effect it has on my body. The more in tune you are with your body, the more you realize what you're putting into it does have an effect on what you get out of it," she told The Independent.
She Enjoys Exercise
Dianne tries "not to put so much pressure on myself and only do things I think I'll genuinely enjoy," she told Women's Fitness. "It's about knowing exactly what you want in life and being true to that person or that thing you're doing. If you're doing something you love, your stress levels are automatically much lower than if you're doing something you really don't want to do. In terms of working out, I used to think I had to go to the gym and run on the treadmill for an hour, which I hated, whereas now I'll do a form of exercise I actually enjoy."
