At just 24-years-old she has built a reputation for her professionalism with a style that makes her a modern Aussie icon and the new face of Australia’s Solar D Vitamin D friendly sunscreen. Renae first came to national attention when she reigned as Miss Universe Australia 2012 and has modelled extensively throughout Europe and the UK.. More recently, Renae has been on the front cover of Fitness First magazine and just made headlines breaking into the US market, with her stunning Sports Illustrated shoot! She loves to follow a fit and healthy lifestyle which resonates with lots of Fitties…she has an impressive Instagram following of over 65,000!
I catch up with Renae to get the insider info on her approach to health…
1. HOW DID YOUR PERSONAL HEALTH JOURNEY BEGIN?
To be perfectly honest, I haven’t always worried about what I eat. This has evolved as I get older, and my body has changed and I need to watch a little more what I put into it now. It certainly helped living with my trainer, who has taught me so much about healthy eating.
2. WHO OR WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
With social media so prolific these days, I am constantly inspired by people on Twitter and Instagram. Your day is bombarded with healthy, gorgeous women! How could it not inspire you. And, as I said earlier my trainer Alexa is a great motivation.
3. YOUR DAY ON A PLATE?
Breakfast: Oats made with coconut water and raspberries.
Morning Snack: – Protein bar + Green apple
Lunch: Tuna salad
Afternoon Snacks: Green juice + Handful of nuts
Dinner: Chicken stir fry with brown rice
After dinner treat: some dark chocolate
4: FAVOURITE WAY TO GET MOVING?
I remind myself how good I am going to feel after 🙂

Lollies and chocolate are my weaknesses! Who doesn’t have that weakness! I try not to have them in the house, as I know I cannot resist if they are there.

Be true to yourself and treat all people equally!
