She wrote at length: ‘I used to workout for physical change… fell into the trap of comparing myself to others and wanted things like a thigh gap, skinnier arms, smaller waist. 

‘But no matter what kind of ‘results’ I got, I always wanted more. It wasn’t until I stopped training to look a certain way and stopped restricting what I ate and brought balance into my life that I actually started to appreciate my body. 

‘Sure, I gained weight making those changes, but I realized that’s not what mattered. NOW I train to clear my head, have some ‘me time’, give myself energy, feel stronger, challenge myself and I also just love it!

‘You have to find movements that you ENJOY… working out SHOULD NOT be a punishment – it should be a celebration.’ 

Steph continued: ‘Currently in my postpartum body, I’ll be honest, I’m not feeling 100% myself. 

‘But I think that’s because I’m not that same person I was 12 months ago, and when I really think about that, I’m okay with it, as I love being the new me, mother to Harvey. I’m excited to regain my strength.
