Former 'EastEnders' actress Tamzin Outhwaite is planning to go without alcohol and "rubbish food" for eight weeks, and she has invested in a new sauna blanket
Tamzin Outhwaite is embarking on an eight-week challenge to go without alcohol and "rubbish food".
The former 'EastEnders' actress has invested in a sauna blanket – which is built with layers of infrared heating – and took part in an online workout with body transformation coach Richie Swan yesterday (04.01.20) as part of a new healthy-living drive.
She wrote on Instagram: "New day, new week, new year, new beginnings.... 1st workout with @richie.swan and a whole bunch of brilliant people on insta live .... 8 week challenge... no alcohol, or rubbish food, loads of water and a daily sauna in my @getmihigh sauna blanket. (sic)"
Following her exercise class, Tamzin – who played Mel Owen on the BBC One soap – managed six hours sleep, but was hoping for eight hours.
She tweeted: "Fell asleep at 11.30pm and woke at 5.30.... Insomnia is back. (sic)"
In response to a follower who questioned how her insomnia was back if she managed six hours of shut eye, she replied: "Just really wanted one night of 8 hrs. (sic)"
Another of Tamzin's followers insisted that is "not really insomnia", and she replied: "I know. It’s actually greed".
In September last year, Tamzin was attempting to go alcohol, dairy and meat-free after she managed to go without all three for the whole of August's 31 days.
She wrote on Twitter: "Back to no alcohol, no dairy , no meat. Last month I did 31 days... this time I want to beat it, then try not to drink, eat cheesecake and salt beef sandwiches all in one day ! (sic)"
Shortly beforehand, Tamzin admitted she was embarking on a plant-based diet as part of attempting to continue her "flow of positive energy, exercise and well-being".
She wrote: "Morning all.... I'm trying so hard to continue my flow of positive energy , exercise & well being. Eating a plant based diet & holding on to my Sense of calm is the challenge. Not beating myself up about the ice cream last night.
"Day 24 of no alcohol & that does feel good. Experiencing negativity and batting it away to come back to the calm,is a continual lesson. Mindful choices in everything. Sending you all a surge of Sunday love. (sic)"
