Beauty & Wellness Routine with Lucy Thomson from Lifestyle Lucy, Personal Trainer, Pilates Instructor & Nutrition Advisor.

First up, briefly tell us a bit about yourself and what you do!

I was born in Spain and grew up in a combination of Spain, Bali and Australia. I am extremely passionate about all things health, fitness, food & nutrition. I recently lived in London for 5 years where I qualified as a Personal Trainer & Pilates instructor. I love to inspire others to become a stronger and better version of themselves both physically and mentally. I am a mobile personal trainer, so I bring the gym to you – in the privacy of your own home or local park! I also run outdoor Bootcamp classes at Allen Park in Swanbourne. My Bootcamp sessions are a full body, 45 minute workout that combines cardio, strength and endurance based exercises! They are a great way to start the day, outdoor in the fresh air – all fitness levels are welcome. In my down time I love to cook and dabble in a bit of blogging here and there. I love to share my recipe ideas with others over on my website – www.lifestylelucy.net!

Describe a typical day of eating for you (Drinks, breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, dessert – the whole lot!)

It very much depends on the seasons. However at the moment, I am really enjoying smoothies for breakfast. In winter it’s a hearty bowl of porridge! I think smoothies are an amazing way to get an abundance of vitamins and minerals into one meal. My favourite combo at the moments is –

♥ Frozen blueberries
♥ ½ a frozen banana
♥ Chia seeds
♥ A large scoop of Chocolate protein powder ( I like Tropeaka or Raw protein)
♥ Psyllium husk
♥ A fresh knob of ginger
♥ Raw zucchini
♥ A handful of spinach
♥ Water or coconut water if I have any

Lunch varies depending on If I am at home or out and about – I love making a couple of big fresh salads at the start of the week that I can add some chicken to for lunch. I also love having eggs for lunch too! Dinner tends to be very similar to lunch – lots of veggies and wholesome ingredients with some protein on the side. Although I am not vegan, I try my best to make some delicious plant based meals each week as well.

Do you take any supplements, vitamins or special wellness elixirs? If so, we’d love to know!

Every morning I take Vital Greens powder mixed in warm water with a collagen powder (Nutra Organics). I then take a probiotic and Omega 3 supplement. I believe it is super important to nourish your body from the inside out!

Do you have an evening wind-down ritual?

Once my baby, Sophia, is asleep around 6pm, I clean up all of her toys and mess after a day of playing, I take a shower to freshen up and eat a wholesome home-cooked meal. I then try and cut out screens at least half an hour before I go to bed. I take an evening magnesium supplement (BioCeuticals) and rub lavender oil on my chest before jumping into bed with a good book.

What are your top 3 wellness non-negotiables?

I start my day with a greens powder as mentioned above and a huge glass of water! I also love my daily coffee, it’s something I look forward to every morning. A good coffee = a happy Lucy! I also apply SPF every day. My favourite brands are Edible Beauty SPF and Ultra Violette SPF drops. It is so important to protect your skin especially when living in Australia!

If you could only wear one brand of activewear for the rest of your life it would be…

Well that is easy – I live in Lululemon, always have and always will! It’s honestly the best quality activewear that is not only flattering with some great designs, but it also lasts for years!

What’s the one beauty or wellness treatment you can’t live without? And your favourite place to have it done?

I try to treat myself to a facial every quarter to give my skin a little bit of TLC! Facials are so relaxing and they are a nice way to switch off from the outside world too! My favourite place in Perth is Rationale in Subiaco – I love all their products!

What beauty treatment/ wellbeing activity would you love to try but haven’t got around to yet?

Skin needling, I am a little bit skincare obsessed and have always wanted to try skin needling! I’ve heard so many good things – maybe I should book myself in!?!

You’ve got a big event in 7 days time that you need to look incredible for. What’s your plan of attack to look & feel your absolute best?

Hydrate, hydrate and hydrate! I would also try to manage my stress levels and get as much sleep as possible – not always that easy with a 5 month old though!

What’s your dream wellness vacay?

Bali! My mum has been living in Bali for the last 20 years, it really is such a magical place with beautiful people – a place I call home. I love visiting her and the beautiful island, practicing yoga each day, eating wholesome foods and getting pampered!
