In the caption, she wrote: 'I tend to relax a lot more on the weekends which can sometimes enable my laziness and unlock my passion for large bars of chocolate, so I remind myself, life is about balance and enjoyment.

'I’m gonna get my lifters on, get my a** down to the gym and throw around some weights, then I’m going to have an afternoon of lounging and hitting the cake.'

Lucy added that she had plans to see friends on Sunday so that they could embark on a long walk with their dogs before enjoying a roast dinner.

Speaking candidly about her relationship with food, Lucy went on: 'Quite honestly I can (still) be prone to binge eating if I forget to include balance in my lifestyle. 

'I used to think "I’ll have this as a treat" and then I’d be really full of guilt and shame about what I’d eaten and I’d eat more to feel better. Then it’d go round in circles.

'I learnt that I am definitely worthy of cake and ice cream, fruit and sweets, salad and steak and what I eat doesn’t define who I am.

'I’ll be eating what is tasty this weekend whilst being conscious about how much energy my body needs and not over-fuelling it. Learning about that really changed everything for me.'

The singer-songwriter overhauled her lifestyle following the breakdown of her marriage.

Writing on social media earlier this year, Lucy explained how she previously spent 'so much of her life just incredibly sad' and 'hiding behind the false confidence that drinking gave'.

The former X Factor contestant, who is releasing a new album soon, also added that giving up alcohol for almost a year is her 'biggest achievement to date'.
