Kerri Anne Kennerley has been flaunting her new figure in the past few months. Despite being over 62 years of age, the TV personality manages to make women half her age jealous of her body. The reason behind her workout and diet change motivations was her being diagnosed with Breast Cancer and thankfully it has helped Kerri to look fabulous rather than harming her in any way. Let’s have a look at the interesting fitness journey she had taken and take some lessons from it.
News.com reported that the singer was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012 when she was trying on costumes for a reality show Dancing with the Stars (2004-Present) and found a lump. She admits that the moment saved her life as she may have missed the lump herself for months or even years.
She started off with the treatment of the disease as soon as possible but it took a toll on her body. The treatment indirectly contributed to her losing a lot of bone due to radiation and drugs related to breast cancer. As she didn’t want to treat it with more medications, she opted for changing her diet and adding weight training to her workout routine. Smart Choice Kerri!!
The former Mornings with Kerri-Anne (2002-2011) host has been doing weight training for over a year. She does it twice every week and thinks it really works for her body. She also wants other women to get started with strength training.
She thinks that weight training would suit women of all ages and would offer various benefits like boosting muscle strength, bone strength as well as acting as an anti-aging remedy. She insists that every woman should do weight training and benefit from it.
Take Up a Sport
Daily Mail also reported that the effervescent star wishes that everyone should take up any sport that will keep their body moving. You can opt for dancing or even start taking more walks. Both are good forms of cardio that will boost your heart rate and keep you more healthier in the long run. She herself likes to play golf and has been an avid golfer since years.
Transform Yourself for Better Health
Kennerley also advised people to change their bodies to be healthier rather than aiming for looking good or hiding their age. Her own transformation was all about health rather than age or cosmetics.
The diva also accepted that she is a vain person who would never be willing to go gray, be without make up, act her age or wear sensible shoes. But, she never thought she would be hiring someone to help her in the gym and she has been doing that lately for her health. It clearly shows that she is keeping her health above all which is an appreciable thing in our opinion.
Showing off the Results
The TV celebrity showed off the final results of her new health routine on the cover page of Woman’s Day Health Magazine in September 2015 in which she wore a two piece and restrained everyone from using Photoshop or filters on her pictures.
The photo shoot for the magazine was done by her because she gained new-found confidence from her incredible figure and her husband of 30 years, John Kennerley convinced her. He said that if you have worked hard to get that body, you should not hesitate to show off the results. Well, that’s some cool advice John.
The new diet plan of one of Australia’s most seasoned light entertainment hosts is high in proteins that helps her to feel full for long period of time and also assists her to improve her muscle tone.
Australia’s “Daytime TV Queen” also shared some commandments she follows with regard to her health that are certainly easy to follow and highly beneficial. Here they are:
- You should always dress with regard to your body type.
- You should distract your mind off food by focusing on other things like a sport you like or an activity you love such as dancing.
- You should always consume the exact amount of calories your body needs everyday because if you eat more calories than your body needs, you will have to shed them off by hitting the gym.
- You should always opt for healthy foods rather than the tasty ones. Make eating healthy a habit and you will be less tempted to eat unhealthy food as the time passes.
- You should always pick the healthiest food item if you have to eat outside.
