Jackson Heights native turned Hollywood A-lister Lucy Liu looks incredible on the cover of Fitness Magazine‘s March 2013 issue! The 44 year old star of the TV series, Elementary and one-two punch knockout shares her tips for a hot healthy bod, her fitness routine, and maintaining a positive body image in Hollywood:
“Part of being an actress is that people are going to judge you whether you gain or lose weight — it’s just sort of a given. But I’ve never had issues with food. When I was growing up, my family didn’t have a lot. So if there was food, I was going to eat it!”
In addition to eating well and hitting the gym, Lucy also keeps her mind strong with meditation: “I’ve been meditating twice a day for about two years now. It’s helped me so much! It gives me a feeling of comfort and safety, and makes me feel as if I’m part of a bigger plan.”
But even the healthiest of girls needs a little help her friends! Lucy relies on her circle of friends are her best motivators: “A group of five of us – friends and friends of friends – got an e-mail chain going, and we all set goals: an ideal weight, inches we wanted to lose, eating habits we wanted to adopt. We would e-mail, saying ‘I ran today’ or ‘I ate this,’ and we’d share recipes.”
Go ahead girls, dust off those New Year’s Resolutions. Get up and out!
