I’m back from New York. I landed this morning and am feeling a little tired following the overnight flight, which is never quite long enough to sleep properly. What a trip – shows, events and catching up with everyone new and old that I love in the city.
Having completed almost the entire Net-A-Porter x Nike 7 Day Body Reboot (my flight got in the way of seeing the 7 days through to the end), I landed in New York feeling somewhat different. Ordinarily when reaching New York, a city I visit several times a year, I head straight for one of my favourite restaurants to meet friends and have a hearty all American meal. This time I felt I just couldn’t. Not in a way that was restricting, just that I felt so good about my energy levels and tighter body that I simply didn’t want to throw away my good work
I continued to follow Joslyn Thompson’s workout plan during my 6 days in NY; the workouts didn’t require an enormous amount of equipment, so I bought inexpensive weights, a mat and band to continue where I left off in London – as the workouts are under 20 minutes a day, it was easy to find time to complete any one of the routines each morning
Eating was a little trickier; restaurants and eating on the move between shows meant I couldn’t follow Rose Ferguson’s plan as I had been in London, but I did avoid cakes and all other sweet things that I would perhaps have reached for when I needed a little energy boost – I had almonds and an apple instead.
Now I am back I shall be ordering the same foods that I had bought at the beginning of my Net-A-Porter 7 Day Body Reboot and starting all over again, let’s hope with London Fashion Week fast approaching I can stick to the plan with more ease being in my own city and waking in my own bed each morning…

The one that took a while to master… The Scorpion Plank.
As part of the 7-day workout devised by Nike master trainer Joslyn Thompson, simple effective training combined with a nutrition plan by Rose Ferguson has taken me to a whole new level of everyday wellbeing.
I am, and have been for some time, considerate about what I put into my body and train regularly to ensure I’m at a healthy weight and am energised, but what I noticed about the 7 Day Body Reboot was that by following an eating plan down to the last chia seed (well, almost) I realised my sugar intake from my regular diet was in fact far too high. I feel more alive, less sluggish and actually enjoy working out more because of this new way of eating.
I am leaving for New York tomorrow, so this will be my last day of full training – I shall be doing all I can while away to stick to the eating plan though, I’m sure with the focus on fashion week I will be keeping a closer eye on my eating habits and doing everything I can to steer clear of the dreaded sugar
My Net-A-Porter and Nike 7-Day Reboot continues, I’m feeling stronger, lighter and with far more energy than usual. I’m fit, but this has changed so much for me in that I can see where I was going wrong in what I ate and am using muscles that I wouldn’t ordinarily use.

Two days to go…
Following the Net-A-Porter & Nike fitness and nutrition plan as part of their 7-Day Body Reboot. I worked at my computer passed midnight last night and can’t deny I’m missing my iced latte and granola, but I’m feeling lighter and less sluggish as each morning passes by cutting the caffeine and carbs out. This ‘papaya fruit salad and seeds’ (recipe on Net-A-Porter) has lots of pineapple, which has a real kick and serves to awaken the mind.
