In the pages of the magazine, the beauty advices on how to begin your fitness journey, dealing with insecurities and how she balances being a mum, wife, and actress with her workout routines. Read excerpts from her interview below.On her health and fitness inspiration: I was a very active child growing up so I got used to the adrenaline and sore muscles. I was a soccer fan and player to my core, so were my father and brother so I had their support as a child. I went fully back on board when I went through a break-up and wanted to occupy my time with school and everything else I enjoyed so I wouldn’t have time to relapse.On her post-maternity fitness routine: I have an interval timer app with different settings depending on how much time I have to spare. My go-to routine is five intense exercises for 30 seconds each, with a 10-seconds rest, repeated five times. The first set of five would be cardio-inclined with the subsequent exercises being body weight core building and strengthening styles. I do yoga twice a week. On a weekday it is about 30-40 minutes long, while on Sunday it is an hour. This was my routine before birth and still is.Photo Credit: Somkele Iyamah-Idhalama
