5 Minutes With Lauren Brant.

5 Minutes With Lauren Brant.
Lauren is sporting the 'Smoothie Crop Bra' in confetti/black.

We think former 'High 5' star Lauren Brant is a bit of a wonder woman. The gorgeous Aussie T.V. personality only gave birth to cutie Miller five months ago, but she’s already competed in a triathlon! We sat down with this fab mummy to quiz her all about her fitness and motivation. Follow @LaurenBrant to see more of Lauren, Miller and partner - AFL star Barry Hall.

Since giving birth to your gorgeous little boy Miller five months ago, you’ve already competed in a triathlon! How do you stay motivated to keep fit with a little one to look after?

Health and well-being is a huge part of my lifestyle. The benefits you get from exercise and a healthy diet are priceless. Knowing this means that not looking after myself is not an option. I set goals, like competing in a triathlon, to keep me motivated on those days where I'm feeling lazy. You can always find time to do the important things.

How did you keep fit during your pregnancy?

I was quite fit heading into my pregnancy and as I got further in, I decreased the intensity, movements and weight. I found pilates very beneficial as well as walking and light stable gym work. Plus I made sure I ate a wide range of foods to get all the different nutrients.

Did you enjoy being pregnant?

While I was pregnant, I wasn't sure how I felt. I loved knowing that I was having a baby, but I did feel like my body had been hijacked and I had no control over it. As it was my first pregnancy, I think I was a bit scared of the unknown and questioned if everything was okay. If I am lucky enough to fall pregnant again, I think I will really enjoy the process a lot more as I'll know what to expect.

Tell us about your postpartum exercise routine.

For six weeks I did nothing. Then I did a six week course with a personal trainer who specialises in postnatal training - Sarah Male from 'The Mummy Trainer.' She taught me so much I didn't know about my body and made me really appreciate what my body had done in growing and delivering a baby. We concentrated on healing and strengthening for six weeks. Now, I am back into my full fitness regime. I highly recommend doing a postnatal course, Sarah has one online.

Are there any accounts you follow for fitness inspiration?

I follow Libby Babet (@libbybabet) and The Mummy Trainer (@the.mummy.trainer), plus a lot of my friends are fit and healthy.

What do you recommend expecting mums stock up on. Other than sleep?

I have wipes, sanitiser and bottled water in every room. Oh and in Miller’s case, lots and lots of bibs. He is a drooler!
