    ‘I was just not a priority in my own life and I was at the bottom of my own to do list,’ sy het gese.

    It wasn’t until May this year, when she noticed her wedding ring was getting quite tight, that she realised how much weight she had put on.

    When Rhian launched her business in 2010 it focused on getting mums to prioritise their own health so they could feel confident in their own skin.

    As her clothes got tighter and she no longer ‘felt fitshe realised she had stopped doing the very thing she preached.

    What are Rhian’s top ten ‘lifetime swapsto help stay healthy?

    1- Ditch sugar filled soda drinks and drink sparkling waters or use a soda stream

    2- Halve your meat intake and swap for veggies – this will reduce your calorie and fat intake plus up your nutrient and fibre intake

    3- Being in the right frame of mind is crucial. Your mental wellbeing underpins your physical wellbeing. Swap negative practices that don’t help your mental wellbeing and focus on positive mental strategies.

    4- If you love chocolate, swap milk chocolate for dark chocolate with flavours in, so it makes it more interesting – such as mint, seesout, orange and limit portion size.

    5- If you love a glass of wine – make them into a spritzer or load up with ice and limit to one glass.

    6- Incorporate hand weights into your life and swap 10 mins of your couch time in the night with doing some light hand weights and squats for 10 mins a night.

    7- Swap takeaway meals (loaded with oils, fats and sugars) with your own healthy meals

    8- Swap beef mince to turkey mince.

    9- Need a sugar hit? Swap store bought choc bars with home made snack bars and treats.

    10- Ditch frozen convenience food that is often not healthy and get into meal prep
