But one health and fitness coach says it's all about the simple things - and taking the time to prioritise your health, fitness and beauty regime.

This Week's Circulars

Justine Whitchurch, 45, from the Gold Coast, transformed her body and her life in order to shed a huge 17 kilograms at the age of 40, entering her first bikini modelling competition at 41. Since then, she has competed three times.

Justine shared her health and beauty secrets exclusively with FEMAIL, and revealed how she took charge of her health to feel better than ever.

For Justine, her health and fitness journey started at the age of 40, when she found herself in the emergency department of the hospital twice and knew she couldn't go on in such a destructive way:

'My weight gain came through under-eating, then over-eating, lack of exercise and excessive amounts of alcohol,' the 45-year-old recalled.

'I had lost all control, and when I visited the hospital I was told I wouldn't survive if I continued down this path.'

'That was the cataylst,' she explained. 'I didn't want to die.'

Losing a whopping 24 kilograms in just six months to take her from 71 kilograms to just 47, Justine explained that she quickly lost control of her weight loss.

However, when she realised she needed to look after her health as well as her weight loss, that was when things really changed - and she worked on getting her current body shape.

These days, Justine revealed she has a much healthier and more balanced approach to fitness and diet.

LUNCH: Chicken, vegetables and rice.

AFTERNOON SNACK: Nut bar and protein shake.

DINNER: Protein with vegetables or a meal made in her slow cooker.

While she has competed in several bikini modelling competitions, she also enjoys regularly training and eating healthy foods.

Justine started to compete - and came third in Miss Bikini Australia Musclemania - because she 'enjoys the discipline of preparation and I wanted to see what I could do to transform my body'.

A typical week of workouts for the 45-year-old will involve five steady state cardio sessions and five strength sessions.

Justine also shared her day on a plate:

'I start with either protein oats, almond milk and berries, a ham or chicken salad wrap for morning tea, chicken, veggies and rice at lunch, a nut bar and protein shake in the afternoon, and then more protein with vegetables for dinner,' she said.

'Sometimes a slow cooker meal that the whole family will enjoy is a good option,' she added.

Speaking about her health and beauty secrets - and how others can take charge of their health, the 45-year-old explained that the first thing she would advise others to remember is that you should 'never think you're too far gone to get better'.

Justine Whitchurch's health secrets

1. Eat plenty of greens.

2. Sleep at least seven or eight hours each night.

3. Drink several litres of water.

4. Moisturise your entire body twice a day.

5. Make an effort with your makeup - it's worth it.

6. Highlight your cheekbone.

7. Put effort into both your eyebrows and your eyelashes. Women can look a lot older when they don't maintain these two areas.

8. Eat and eat regularly, but fill your plate with healthy proteins and vegetables.

9. Create a support network and factor in daily exercise to your regime.

10. Use good anti-ageing products.

'Whether it's weight gain, age, mental health issues or addiction, there is always an opportunity to start again,' she said.

'The first thing you need to do is create a support network that will help you and is positive. Then, establish a routine that sees daily exercise and good nutrition as absolute non-negotiables.

'Every step you take to better your physical health you will gain even more strength mentally.'

Justine said she is religious but straightforward about her beauty regime.

'It's all about looking after yourself from the inside out,' she said. 'I make sure I get at least seven or eight hours sleep each night, drink several litres of water and eat lots of greens.'

Justine also without fail moisturises her entire body twice a day 'and I use anti-ageing skincare constantly'.

'In terms of makeup, I always wear it. I like to "make an effort" and personally see my mood change more positively when I make an effort.

'Eyebrows and eyelashes are a big thing for me. I think women can look a lot older when they don't maintain those two things. And highlight those cheekbones!'.

Today, Justine said she 'thrives on routine and being disciplined'.

'The intensity of my workout sessions will vary depending on how I feel and the level of commitment I have to my work and family at that time.

'However, my workouts will always get done. Exercise is a priority, it's my medication and is what will keep me functioning and on top of my game psychology.'

I Smoked Pot and Then Worked Out at the Gym - Here's How It WentWhen used properly, weed can reduce inflammation in the body before, during, or after a workout, and it can give you a boost of energy before a sweat session. The key to unlocking these benefits, though, is to be thoughtful about which cannabis products you choose to use. It's important to opt in for products that are higher in CBD and lower in THC so you don't run the risk of feeling too high to function at the gym (or high at all).
