about you

GOODBYE PLASTIC! I loved the two-part article ‘Be a zero waste beauty’ (WF issues 1 and 2). I’d been feeling bad for a long time about the packaging in my skincare and make-up routines. It’s a no-brainer to ditch the one-use wipes, and I’m going to look for brands that offer refillable packaging, such as Zao (zaoessenceofnature.co.uk). It’s hard to ditch your favourite products in favour of unknowns, and it can be really costly and time-consuming, so this article was invaluable in telling me about the best products to go for. I’ll be overhauling my gym-bag wash kit too. Thank you, WF! Amelie Balfour, Stoke-on-Trent MUM TUM BLITZ I found the ‘Be a fit mum: Core matters’ article really useful (WF issue 2). Having had a baby recently, I’ve struggled to get much advice…

NEW ATTITUDE I liked the refreshing angle of the article ‘Lose weight for good’ (WF issue 2). I’ve struggled in the past to lose weight, but am going to take Jessie Pavelka’s advice onboard as it makes so much sense. No more crash diets that don’t work longterm – it’s about taking responsibility for how I live my life and the decisions I make. I need to be more aware of how I feel as well as how I look – that way, I’ll understand why I reach for the chocolate and try to sort out the root of the problem. I’d also like to have children one day, and don’t want to pass bad habits on to my kids: obese parents equal obese children, as Jessie says – we need…

‘how i build my body’

CARDIO ‘I train five days a week, including playing matches on a Sunday. I have Mondays and Thursdays off to recover. My training sessions start at 8.30am with breakfast, followed by pre-activation exercises to warm up my muscles, a 30- to 40-minute gym session, then 90 minutes on the pitch before recovering with stretching, ice baths, massage and lunch. It’s an intense regime. ‘Most of my cardio exercise is done on the pitch, where I’ll run around 25-30k in a week. We all wear live GPS to help us hit performance targets. As a defender, I need to be able to accelerate quickly to keep up with the forwards, as well as have the endurance to last the full 90 minutes of a match, so my pitch sessions will often include passing…
