Christina Milian in Two-Piece Workout Gear Shares Selfie From the Gym

Here’s how she stays in shape.

Christina Milian is an actress, singer, and TV host. She is known for her appearances in Grandfathered and Bring It On: Fight To The Finish. She was also a host on The Voice. Milian shared a new gym selfie on her Instagram story. In it, she wore a black workout top. How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Christina Milian stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Sets Goals

Milian shared her secrets for getting a workout in to The Bump. "Set a goal. Just give yourself 30 minutes. It doesn't have to be an hour. I like to get away by going to a gym, but sometimes you don't have a choice. There have been times where I was like, 'Okay, I can't get to the gym, it's cold and also, the kids are on me,' so I've just flipped on YouTube and done old workout videos, like Tae Bo. I also love getting outside and walking with my daughter. We walked three miles the other day, just a mile and a half each way."


She Eats Healthy

Milian makes sure to eat healthy. She shared her typical diet with Essence. "Salmon and a big salad. I really love avocados too, with some olive oil and salt and lemon. Delicious! And asparagusβ€”even out of the can. And I try not to overeat. If I hear my body tell me I'm full, I follow my gut, literally, and say 'Hey I'm full' and 'There will be another meal.' I think sometimes we eat with our eyes and our minds, thinking this is the last meal I'm ever going to have."


She Looks Up Affirmations


Milian tells The Bump that she likes to look up affirmations to help her mental state. "After taking my time to do what I needed to do and destress, I looked up some affirmations on YouTube, and it was so nice just to hear the words. I feel like 'affirmations' just got a catchy new title, but basically, it's just like little bites of life coaching. To me, the word 'affirmations' is kind of funny. I've always kind of had my own positive life affirmations within me. I always find a positive out of a negative. Even when I feel down, I understand that there will be a better outcome. But some days, I need to hear it from someone else."


She Limits Red Meat

Milian tells The Cut that she limits the amount of red meat in her diet. "I'm a pescetarian right now, but I'm off and on. I just started in January and it's new for me. The only thing was that I found myself eating more carbs. I had to find a balance because I wasn't getting as full [as I was] from red meat. I love pork. My family, they get it. My sister has done it before, and she's done it for two years.Β  I've actually tried to challenge them to do it. Exposure to information helps create the change toward being well. I do my own research and get information from friends."


She Stays Hydrated

For Milian, staying hydrated is important. "I don't think there is a shortcut for anything," she told The Cut. "If there is anything, maybe drinking lots of water. Even for trimming down, I think the biggest shortcut is hydration. I have never counted but I always have bottles of water around. I always have bottles by my bed or in my car so it's never an issue. At least the option is there to drink water."
