Get Fit Obsessed:
Jennifer Aniston just celebrated her 45th birthday. She’s living proof that a healthy life means you can look amazing regardless of your age! Jennifer was rocking a bikini in Cabo just last month. Women’s Health magazine compiled a list of Jennifer’s fitness and healthy living tips.
- Keep your workouts fresh: “Mixing it up is always fun because that way you know you’re excited, and it’s muscle confusion. It keeps your body awake.”
- Moderation is key, and indulgence is OK: “I eat really well and I work out, but I also indulge when I want to. … I don’t starve myself in an extremist way. My advice: just stop eating s**t every day.”
- Just say OM: “Yoga kind of helps you prepare for everything.”
- Exercise can be addicting—and that’s a great thing: “It’s easy to get addicted to the euphoric feeling of having a good sweat after a run. It wakes up your body.”
- It’s okay to say “forget this” if you don’t feel like working out…: “You know what, there are days I go ‘I can’t’ and ‘I don’t want to,’ and I think you just have to listen to your body. So sometimes you just don’t work out.”
- …but sometimes, just giving it 10 minutes is all it takes to getting past the “I don’t want to work out” stage: “And then there are times when you go, ‘Really? Do you really not want to [work out]?’ And then if you just say, ‘OK, I’m going to get on some machine for 10 minutes,’ you just start to get the endorphins going. Then you feel great, and you just keep going. So sometimes you can actually override the ‘I don’t want to work out.'”
- Find ways to fit in exercise during your regular routine: “I take eight-pound weights with me whenever I’m staying in a hotel … It’s always good to do arm exercises when you’re watching television or talking on the phone. I also love to stretch before I go to bed, and usually throw in a couple of sit-ups.”
- Don’t waste your time on workouts you hate: “I’m not into boot camp, I don’t need to do all of this—I just want to stay fit! (Laughs) I don’t want to get yelled at—at all. Please stop yelling at me.”
- Embrace aging, and revel in how great it can be: “They do say youth is wasted on the young, but I feel just as youthful now—if not more—than I did when I was 25. I’m more in my body; I’m more in my mind.”
- Get your act together: “Go to therapy. Clean up all of the s**t. Clean up all of the toxins and the noise. Understand who you are. Educate yourself on the self.”
This is some great advice! If anyone’s earned the right to give it at this point, it’s Jennifer!
