Chrissy Teigen in Two-Piece Workout Gear Will be "Kind to Myself"

Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits.

Chrissy Teigen is opening up about her fear and mental health struggles. In a new social media post, the model shows off her flat abs in exercise clothes while doing a log crossing. In the post she reveals that she did the same thing "a few years ago" when she was "struggling mentally" and it was "incredibly hard then." Now, even thought she is in a better place, she thought she "could make the pain go away by relaxing my body, breathing and just taking in and enjoying what I was doing. But plot twist!! It was just as hard," she writes. "I thought that since I have seen times that were so dark since the last time I did this, that I would be fearless on this god damn thing. But I'm still so scared. Then I realized I now live my whole life so scared. I don't enjoy much outside my family, my few friends, television and crafts. I feel like a very shrunken version of myself. And I know I am meant to be big. I'm really scared of letting you guys down and I find myself fighting with myself all day in my brain with things I want to say, things I want to explain, but I'm just so fearful. I miss so many parts of myself and I hope one day I can shed some fear and accept that I will never be perfect for you guys and that is okay!! But for now I will continue to work on it all and try to balance my brain with rational thoughts, and try to be kind to myself and my body and mind." How does she approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits.



Exercise Class


Chrissy recently returned to group fitness. "So proud of the us!!" she wrote on one of her Instagram Stories. "I haven't done a workout class in years because I am embarrassed 😬," she admitted. "And I really haven't worked out for 😬😬😬:" she added, using the "grimacing" emoji.


No Dieting

Chrissy tries not to diet. "I've lived a whole life. I've spent way too many years counting calories, scheduling way too many workouts and trying to figure out what my term for wellness was for myself. I've been trying to figure that out for so so long," she told People. In another interview she told the publication that she eats healthy most of the time, though doesn't always share photos of herself "at the gym or making green juice," she said. "So I think people think that I don't do that. But if I post me eating Taco Bell, I probably had a fantastic breakfast and lunch, or I've been good that entire week!"



Chrissy loves Speir Pilates. "There's no better motivation than sweating it out with your friends! 🔥," the studio captioned a photo of a group workout session with Chrissy. Why is pilates a good workout? According to the Mayo Clinic there are lots of benefits to the workout, as it "strengthens the body's inner core while increasing its flexibility resulting in improved overall health." It can also promote longer, leaner muscles, injury prevention, relief from stress and back pain, enhanced athletic performance, and heightened mind-body awareness.


No Scales

Chrissy isn't a fan of the scale. "Since I was 20 years old, I had this weight in my mind that I am, or that I'm supposed to be. I've been so used to that number for 10 years now. And then I started realizing it was a swimsuit-model weight. There's a very big difference between wanting to be that kind of fit and wanting to be happy-fit," she told Women's Health.


Green Juice

Chrissy gets a lot of nutrients from juice. "I love green juices—the ones that include lots of actual greens and don't include too much apple," she told  Shape. "Because those are just meant to be yummy and we all know things that are too yummy aren't the best for us unfortunately."
