How To Get A Model Body: Part 7,987

Fashion Model

I have given this post a ridiculous title because I could literally write that many posts on things you can do to get a more svelte, toned figure. Recipes, little exercises, mental trickery, self-brainwashing, all kinds of things could make their way into a series of posts dedicated to ‘getting in shape’. I could (maybe I should?) write an entire book on it.  But I wanted to post this little picture (taken on my iPhone in Greece) because my body, at the precise moment this was taken, looked the best it has looked for about three or four years. This was taken at the very end of my 12 Day Educogym trial and I have never felt so healthy! By the last day, I was lifting over half my bodyweight and I could do ridiculously powerful squats. (I then went and ate my bodyweight in croissants for a week, but that is by-the-by. Holidays don’t count.)

Anyway, this is just a little interim post, because I’m actually going to go back to Educogym for another two weeks to get into a routine and set myself up for going out into the big bad world of free choice and ‘take it or leave it’ gym sessions. There will be a grand finale post for Educogym in which I’ll weight up the pros and cons (can’t actually think of that many cons whatsoever!) but there were people baying for blood, pictures-wise, so here it is. I’m still waiting on my ‘befores’ from various places, including a mysteriously missing hard-drive, but I can tell you right now that they don’t look like this!

(P.S. the camera angle makes my lower body look freakishly tiny – I’m not quite that small, but it’s a good lesson in ‘posing for a slimmer silhouette’!)

  1. Musing on Beauty

    Ha, you look fabulous!
    I bet you’d sell thousands of books if you wrote that one!

  2. Hi Ruth. I’ve already commented that I would struggle with the diet side of this due to not eating eggs or red meat but do you think you could tell us some more about the sort of exercises that you did? I’d really find that helpful.

  3. You look wonderful!
    PS: I would definitely buy your book if you d write it in the same funny and easy way you do all these posts :)

  4. Wow look at you! You should TOTALLY write a book, I honestly think that is an amazing idea, your such a good witty and intelligent writer in my humble opinion!!

  5. OMG, you look absolutely amazing! And the sexy dress looks perfect on you!

  6. Ruth You look absolutely stunning! Is that dress from Harve Leger i see? It’s beautiful anyway :) One more question : Is there video tutorial of that make up you wearing on the way? I really hope so as your eyes look amazing :) xo

  7. Oh btw what brand is your watch? x

  8. it probably won’t be until few years from now that i could afford to buy myself that watch ;) x

  9. You look BEYOND HOT, Ruth! Congrats on your success with Educogym! And thank you for all your recommendations and inspiration in all things beautiful — I love your site and your videos!

    I could use some advice today, actually… I just found out that I’m going to be interviewed on the national news tomorrow… Yikes! Any last minute beauty tips for the small screen? Thank you! ;)

    • @Sophie they usually have someone to powder you and so on before you appear on any TV, but I’d say just remember that you need a little more makeup than usual because it gets lost on screen – make sure your eyes are defined and don’t wear too pale a lipstick!! xxx

  10. My parents burdened me with terrible genes…

    And, so, even if I were to follow a Educogym regime (and your will-she-won’t-she-write-it? book!), I’d still have an arse to dwarf the London Orbital.

    Thanks Ma and Pa. :0)
