She makes it sound so simple! "I don't go to the gym. I don’t have a desk job so I’m really active everyday. I have a young son and it’s so physical being with him. I’m on the move all the time. And when I’m working I’m constantly running around airports – stress also burns up calories but that’s not a good thing. I walk everywhere when I’m in New York – I don’t get taxis. Some days I walk for five miles. I carry my son to tone me up. My arms get really toned from lifting my son. He weighs 35 pounds and I carrying him all the time. I buy organic products. I go to this great place in New York regularly – it’s called Protima Spa. It’s amazing - all their products are completely organic, there are no chemicals in anything. I don’t always buy organic things but I do try because there are so many chemicals in products so I try to be as natural as possible. You just do what you can. I'm not into surgery stuff. I would never do that. I feel like dieting is something you think about when you are younger. I mean I guess older people do too but when you are younger you can get into an obsessive dieting pattern. Now that I am older I don’t think it’s healthy. When I go to the gym I gain weight. I believe in eating well and just keeping active. When I went to the gym I actually gained more weight. You have to know your body because I am more muscular I just got bigger. You can’t just go to the gym with no plan. You have to know what works for your body and not just follow fads. Don't obsess about a part of your body. I could easily look at my body and be like 'ugh this isn’t right or that isn’t right' but I really try not to go there because it’s really bad for you. I have to de-puff when I fly. I drink cups and cups of green tea – all the time."
She's lucky to not have a desk job!
I've actually experienced weight gain because of the gym too! It is better for me to focus on eating well than to go to the gym. I end up stressing about exercise and then eating more!
@flymetothemoon I think that is a huge part of why she looks the way she does. Her entire job is to maintain her body and look flawless. If I focused all of my energy into that I would probably look pretty nice too!
It's alright for some - although it really bothers me when supermodels say "Oh you know... I don't do anything, I just walk around and drink green tea". These aren't the secrets to a perfect body. They may help improve your health but walking around and drinking green tea will not make you wake up and look like that.
I'm trying to use my lunch breaks as a walking break now so I can have that 30 minutes of activity!
