From her cameos on Glee, to the cover of Self this month and the author of a new cookbook- what an inspiring woman! I absolutely adore her and the fabulous path her career has taken.
Her blog Goop covers healthy cooking, staying active, arts & crafts and other fun things- definately worth checking out :).
From SELF magazine…
You keep growing, what inspires you?
“I go with my instincts. We’re capable of pushing ourselves and doing whatever we want to do. You live one time, so be your best self.”
What is your go-to snack?
“Raw almonds with raisins, or coconut water, or I’ll make a juice with kale, lemon juice, water, Vitamix and a little agave.
On eating right,
“I say I always eat right, but last night, I had fried clams, pasta with duck sausage and two glasses of red wine. When I want to lose, I eat less pasta, bread and potatoes. Before last year’s Iron Man 2 premiere, I did green juices and salads for three days.”
On being in the best shape of her life:
“Yes. I never thought that I’d be considered to have a good body. I was bony up top and kind of dumpy on the bottom. But my trainer, Tracy Anderson, completely changed my legs, butt, arms and stomach. I feel better than ever, too.”
So What’s Your Secret?
“I do 45 minutes of cardio five days a week, because I like to eat. I also try for 45 minutes of muscular structure work, which is toning, realigning and lengthening. If I’m prepping for something or I’ve been eating a lot of pie, I do two hours a day, six days a week for two weeks.”
“I’ve found what works for me. I know if I put in an hour and a half, five days a week, I’m good. If I’m on vacation and, like, “F— it, I’m not working out,” I know what to do when I get back. A lot of women think, “Oh, my God, I could never get there,” but I don’t think that’s true. It’s simply relative to how much you put into it.”
Get inspired for spring!
