Top Irish model Roz Purcell has disclosed that she found it hard to be totally honest with musician boyfriend Bressie when they first started going out.
In fact, for the first six months of their relationship, the beauty said she kept her intense fitness regime a secret from The Voice Of Ireland star because she was afraid he would think she was “weird”.
Instead of telling him how often she felt the need to work out, she would lie to her rocker beau by saying she was going to work early or staying late when she was actually going to the gym.
The 25-year-old revealed: “I thought he’d think, ‘This one’s a bit overboard’. I was 21 at the time and I thought he’d think I was weird.
“I mean, now everyone’s training four days a week and drinking green juices, but none of this was in back then.”
Speaking to the Sunday Life magazine, the newly-published cook book author admitted she became obsessed with working out, and one day she felt overwhelmed by her secret, forcing her to breakdown to Bressie. Unbeknownst to her, he was suffering his own axieties and totally understood.
“I got really upset about not being able to go to the gym and I was just so anxious and so upset. I couldn’t cope with being around anyone and got really down.”
“I remember just telling him that I wanted to cry, and why, and he was great. He said it was fine and it was totally normal and explained it was another form of anxiety.
“And I was like, ‘OK, you don’t think I’m crazy, this is good’.”
