Along with a trio of chic outfit pictures, Martine, 45, wrote: "She’s off 'out out' for a walk folks! I know it doesn’t sound like anything brilliant - But I’ve had one of those days where it’s taken me FOREVER to get myself out of the door today! Jack's pacing about like a mad man as he did the school run this morning and he’s losing the will to live!

"Even the dogs are rolling their eyes at me… But sometimes I just have so much to do and think of things that no one else would in the family! Right - I’m off! Note for the day: Do things at your own pace, in your own time… The world can wait…"

Martine glammed up for her walk

In January she told her followers: "A morning walk really does clear the cobwebs in the mind and the muscles feel like they've been WD 40'D afterwards!"     

"I always have a stretch after too… it feels SO good! Breathing, walking, stretching, nature… It really can make your day a whole lot brighter," she continues.

Martine is often asked about her "secret" to her recent weight loss but the star told HELLO! it's not something she wants to talk about publicly.

She explained: "Because you know what? I think because it's the only thing that makes a headline," she told HELLO! "That makes me sad - I think that we are slowly getting better but women are so much more than that. Slowly women are being braver and not standing for being defined by it."
