Brooke Shields on Working Out
I try to do an hour of something everyday. It’s almost impossible when I’m working, because I’m on the set for 14-16 hours; But last summer, for instance, I’d take a Spinning class or do a morning hike when Rowan (her daughter) was at camp and the baby was asleep; that way I didn’t feel guilty about not being with them. Or in the afternoon I’d put both of them in the stroller and walk the L.A. hills.
“But on days when the baby has woken up four times during the night, putting my sneakers on is the last thing I want to do. I’d rather have four cups of coffee, and, after the caffeine wears off, take a nap with her! I used to have a very type-A lifestyle, but being a mom changed all that.”
I don’t lift weights, she says. It’s easy for me to bulk up. I keep my muscles toned by doing yoga. One super-effective pose, says Ish Moran, her former instructor at Maha Yoga in Brentwood, California, is the chattaranga pose, which works the triceps.
Brooke Shields on Motivation
“It’s easier when I have an external motivation, like getting ready for Broadway. [She starred in Grease in 1995, Cabaret in 2001 and Chicago in 2005.] I had to go into those shows at the top of my game, physically, because the schedule was so rigorous. It’s like the Olympics” only it lasts six months!
Brooke Shields on Diet
“Carbs are the first thing to go if I want to lose weight. I never used to eat red meat, but now, if I crave it, which usually happens when I have my period I go for it. I also love ice cream. I try not to deny myself, because if I do, it turns into this major internal battle. So I pop a couple of Dove Miniatures. I can satisfy myself without going overboard. I also try to drink tons of water. I can actually see how much healthier my skin and hair look when I do.”
