Caroline Flack ditches alcohol for yoga
Caroline Flack has given up alcohol in favour of yoga.
The former 'X Factor' presenter has realised the best way to clear her mind after a stressful day is by meditating rather than skipping off to the pub for a boozy session with pals.
She explained: "Before if I'd had a stressful day I'd go to meet my friends in the pub and have a moan. Now I go to yoga. It really suits my head - I'm someone who talks fast, thinks fast, makes decisions fast. Now I'm trying to go slower and give myself time before I say yes."
The 36-year-old beauty decided to pour her all into exercise after she was slammed with online abuse regarding her looks.
She said: "I ignored it [the comments] for a very long time, knowing it was there, which was a weird feeling, like ignoring a bank statement on your table. And one time I looked. I'll never forget what night it was because it felt really sh*t.
"I learned my lesson not to look. I really would hate to think that was the reason I decided to get my body in better shape. But, maybe inside somewhere, it might have been."
The brunette babe has managed to drop two dress sizes over the past five months but is adamant she doesn't train hard to lose weight but, instead, to get fit.
Speaking to Women's Health magazine, she said: "I didn't want to get skinny, just strong. I'm nearer the size 8-10 now as my body shape has changed, but it was never my intention to get down to a size 6 or anything."
