Zoe Saldana Is Removing The Word “Diet” From Her Life + Reveals Workout Routine
Actress and new twin mommy Zoe Saldana has banished the word ‘diet’ and just wants to focus on being healthy. In a post to her Facebook page the 36-year-old talked about her struggles with weekend junk food eating and revealed one of her workout routines.
Her Facebook Post read:
“Ok, how do you guys deal with the weekends and eating out? By Friday I’m anxious about what I will have to do over the weekend to avoid breaking my diet. I find myself dreading the awesome family feast gatherings, friends inviting me over for a “wine and dine” on Saturdays, and then of course Sunday brunch. WTF!!!
So here is what I’m gonna start doing; I am going to remove the word “diet” from my life. I am going to remind myself that it is not about losing weight, it is about being healthy, feeling healthy, for the rest of my life.
What I am trying to do for myself and my family is create a healthy lifestyle that I can live by everyday. I want it to become second nature to us.
How am I going to deal with the anxiety of anticipating the weekends? I am gonna try to focus on what weekends are really for- resting and making time for your loved ones… And when chow time arrives? I will make amazing and healthy decisions.
I know ordering pizza while vegging out in front of your TV feels way easier to do, but trust me it isn’t. Healthy doesn’t have to be dull and sad, it can be an awesome experience.”
She also shared her workout routine and said:
“Moyer has been putting my cardio tolerance to the test today with interval training. After a 12 minute warmup on the elliptical, we changed it up on the treadmill. Started out walking, then increased to a run at a slight incline until my heart rate was around 160-170 range. After it hit this range, I walked in order to get my heart rate back down to about 120, only to turn around and start the whole process all over again.
We didn’t do this just once… but 10 times!
36 minutes of solid working out. The thing that I learned about interval training is that even 10-15 minutes is enough to see results, with the added bonus, you can do it just about anywhere. Even switching up your cardio with jumping jacks or burpees!
It’s also important to note that, every week I’m challenging myself 10-15% more than the week before. Faster pace, higher incline, more reps…that’s what training is all about: pushing yourself to do a little bit more for a period of 4 – 5 weeks.”
