Kristin Cavallari in Workout Gear is "Not in the Mood" at the Gym

Here’s how she stays in shape.

Kristin Cavallari first started out her long career as a reality star. Her first show was Laguna Beach, she then appeared on The Hills. Years later, she starred in Very Cavallari. Cavallari also has her own clothing and beauty lines. She recently shared a photo of herself at the gym on her Instagram story. Cavallari wore a sweatshirt that said, "Not in the mood" on it. How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Kristin Cavallari stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She's Putting Herself First

Cavallari talked about her wellness journey to Shape. She says that she has learned to prioritize herself after her divorce. "I put myself last and I was really burned out," she says. "With my divorce, I didn't have my kids full-time anymore and so I had alone time for the first time in a long time. It was really weird at first because I didn't know what to do with it. What I chose to do was really work on myself – mentally, physically, emotionally, all of it."


She's Not Being Hard On Herself

Cavallari tells Shape that she's working on not being so hard on herself and forcing herself to a specific schedule. "I used to be very much about a routine and there was no wiggle room. I would get really down on myself if I missed a workout or missed whatever it was. That was all about trying to control everything in my life. I have learned to relax a little bit more and am in more of a state of flow. I try to choose a word for the year and this year I chose 'flow.' I do feel like I'm just more in a state of flow, just letting whatever's supposed to happen, happen."


She Eats A Lot Of Natural Food


Cavallari makes sure to eat healthy, and shared her approach to eating with Shape. "I try to eat food as close to its natural state as possible. Not a lot of processed food, but tons of fruits and vegetables, and meat. I try to eat organic as often as possible. I never look at calories or fat or anything. I only read ingredient labels on a package. I won't eat it if it's just full of a bunch of chemicals."


She Cooks

Cavallari loves to cook with her three children. "Cooking is definitely an area that all three kids enjoy, which makes me so happy," she says to Shape. "Even my oldest, I don't know how that happened but I feel very lucky and I think it's very cool that they want to be in the kitchen. It was Jaxon's idea to have each of them make dinner one night this week, which is really fun."


She Uses A Stairmaster

Cavallari shared some of her favorite workouts in this TikTok. One thing she likes to do is use a stairmaster. She is seen on the machine at the beginning of the video, and revealed that this is part of her warmup. AceFitness states that stair climbing has a lot of benefits. "Stair climbing also heavily recruits muscles of your posterior chain — the glutes and calves — as well as hip flexors and muscles in the ankle, which are required to raise your foot up onto each stair.  So the workout will help strengthen all those muscles."
