“I like yoga” says Spice Girl Mel C
She’s known as Sporty Spice, so it seems appropriate that Spice Girl Melanie Chisholm - Mel C as she is often called - enjoys her exercise.
"I like yoga,” the powerful-voiced beauty recently told Hello Online, “I do Vinyasa flow and a bit of Bikram.”
She’s not alone in her enjoyment of the yoga, of course, with many people all over the world owning Yoga mats and getting a huge amount of benefit from the fulfilling and fun pastime.
So what other types of exercise does Sporty enjoy? She told Hello that she loves running in the great outdoors, and in fact has plans to take part in a triathlon later in 2012 - the second such event she’s undertaken, so it sounds like she’s truly living up to the nickname she was given back in the 1990s after she and her fellow Spice Girls burst onto the scene with hit Wannabe.
Mel told the website she’s been cycling, swimming and running as well as doing strength and circuit work in preparation for her forthcoming triathlon.
At present though, she’s taken a break from this exercise regime, saying: “I'm rehearsing every hour god sends."
The star is currently preparing to return to the role of Mary Magdalene in Jesus Christ Superstar, the Andrew Lloyd Webber show which she toured arenas with last year.
She said she doesn’t stick to a strict diet but rather feels that food ought to be “as natural and as fresh as possible, especially in a year like this year where I'm very busy with work and I'm doing the triathlon.”
She she eats lots of protein, complex carbohydrates, vegetables and fruit and drinks lots of water, she said.
"I love to have a drink and I love cake but it's just about everything being in moderation, isn't it,” the sensible singer explained.
Mel said that she tries to go by a system where she is “good” about what she eats for 80 per cent of her time. She warned against total denial of treats, saying that diet was “all about balance”.
- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi Kianouche, Thank you for your message. I would recommend to mix pomegranate oil with Marula oil for what you are looking to treat. A few drops of antioxidant-rich Marula oil mixed with Pomegranate oil can boost efficacy and help restore your skin’s functions in perfect equilibrium. Long term use may visibly minimise pores, brighten the skin, protect it from the oxidative damage caused by pollution, tones down pigmentation and assists with scar tissue healing. Hope this helps :)
- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi I’ve bought some of your pomegranate oil, together with rosehip and marula oils. Which of the other two oils would be better to mix with pomegranate oil for mature skin with hyperpigmentation due to sun damage and sometimes prone to spots and milia when using rich moisturisers. Also, can I use pomegranate oil by itself or combined with either of the other two oils around my eyes

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Dolores, thank you for your message!Ashwagandha is an adaptogen so will adapt to your own bodies rhythm. It is a powerful way to regulate energy levels through the day so in some people may boost circulation and cell activity, which is why you may find yourself with insomnia. Everyone is unique and different, so will react to herbs and remedies differently. As you are using bio-identical hormones, I would advise you check with your GP, as there are often interferences with herbs. Perhaps you should try taking your Ashwagandha in the morning to regulate your bodies rhythm through the day.
