The ‘Big Bang Theory’ star Kaley Cuoco says it took her a while to figure out exactly what works for her in terms of staying slim and fit. You would never know she struggled with it from looking at her!
She covers the October issue of Shape magazine.
Does she look incredible or what?!
Here’s what she told Shape about staying in shape:
It took years for me to figure out what my body needs and that what works for my friends doesn’t necessarily work for me. Doing yoga five times a week has transformed my body. I love being toned and having muscle; it’s so sexy and beautiful. And I owe it 100 percent to yoga.”
Clearly yoga works for her! She said she also learned that she can’t eat like her husband, Ryan Sweeting.
As I’ve gotten older [Cuoco turns 30 in November], I’ve had to change my food intake. My husband, Ryan [Sweeting, a professional tennis player], eats so much. When we first got married, it was so much fun to eat like him. We got into this habit we called the bedtime snack. The drawers next to the bed were filled with candy. Eventually, I realized it was mindless eating. I was just doing it because he was doing it, and it was adding hundreds of calories I didn’t even think about. So I cut that out. Our refrigerator and pantry have completely changed, because we don’t eat crap anymore. No more soda, chips, cereal; we had boxes of stuff that only a 4-year-old would eat.”
I think many of us can sympathize with that one ;). Yet Kaley confessed that she does have a cheat day.
I have to have a cheat day. I know when I’m being good all week long that come Sunday, I’m going to lie by the pool, have a drink, and eat some pizza. Then I wake up on Monday morning and I’m all ready to start the week again. I’m just going to be in a bad mood all the time if there’s no light at the end of the tunnel.”
She also shared the importance of appreciating the personal payoffs.
It doesn’t sound like a lot, but I lost six pounds in the last three months. That’s a whole jeans size, and we all know how good that feels! I’m the type of girl who’s always had to buy jeans in three sizes because I never know what my body is going to do from one day to the next. Everything, from the inside out, has completely changed for me. And now, when I look into the mirror and see the positive changes, I don’t want to go back to what I was doing. Especially when my husband is like, ‘You look amazing!’”
Yeah, that definitely helps you stay on track! You can read Kaley’s interview at Shape.com.
