The outfit revealed the reality star’s washboard abs and incredible gym-honed figure as she struck a pose in front of a full length mirror.  

Alexandra pulled her raven tresses pulled back in a tight pony tail, with just a hint of smokey make-up accentuating her good looks. 

In an accompanying caption the brunette was candid with her fans about her relationship with the gym and her own sense of self. 

Describing how bad things used to be, she wrote: ‘I experienced years of no purpose, attempting the gym numerous times with money wasted on memberships I never used because I was so scared & didn’t have a clue what I was doing.

‘Last year I hit rock bottom and knew that no one was going to save me but myself.

‘I had an unhealthy relationship with food & alcohol which I was using as coping mechanisms to mask what was really going on underneath.’

Alexandra decided things could not go on as they were, and she turned her life around by heading to the gym and losing two stone in just three. 

She said: ‘A solid year of self development has transformed me not only physically, but most importantly, mentally. I am a different woman.’

The reality star also emphasised that external appearance is not everything, and it is important to care for yourself on the inside as well as out.
