She Does Pilates

A few weeks ago, the mother of two shared her newest gym video. Wearing blue spandex and a black tank top, Biel lays on a mat holding a medicine ball straight up while bicycling with her legs.

In the same video, Biel switches things up and lowers the medicine ball while raising both legs. She then alternates each leg, touching the medicine ball, and does several reps.

After she's done with the medicine ball, Biel does sit-ups, but only does a few in the video, because her husband, Justin Timberlake, interrupts her workout, something he loves to do. He pretends to put his foot on her stomach and she laughs. She looks at the camera and says, "That was my man."


She Eats A Lot of Fruits and Veggies

Biel is very mindful of what she eats and consumes lean proteins, whole foods, and fruits and vegetables. She posted a delicious salad she made with apricots, cucumber, tomato, sunflower seeds. mozzarella balls, basil, and brown rice. 


She Has Cheat Days


Biel typically sticks to a well-balanced and clean diet, but she does allow herself to indulge. "A big cheat day in my world is very full on," she told InStyle. "When I'm going for it, I'm going for it. I'm going to have a million cups of coffee in the morning and then it's going to be wine for lunch, pasta for lunch. There's going to be another aperitif after lunch and a dessert and then probably more coffee." It doesn't end there. "And then a dinner that's going to last for a million hours that's just pasta, pasta, pasta, maybe an affogato, maybe another pasta. A lot of wine. More after-dinner drinks. Just really go for it," she said.
