Mia Kang Shares Swimsuit Photo From Las Vegas
Mia Kang is heating up Sin City in her swimsuit. In a recent social media post the model shows off her amazing body in a bathing suit while poolside in Las Vegas. "It's cool I'll just stay home," she captioned the series of Instagram snaps. "Beautiful," commented one of her followers. "Absolutely gorgeous woman," added another. How does Mia approach health and wellness? Celebwell rounded up her top lifestyle habits.
Mia sets "small goals" for herself. "When I feel a lack of motivation I set myself a series of small goals — sometimes they are even as small as just putting on my workout clothes and getting to the gym. After I achieve that it's just warm up, just run the first mile, and so on. I always find myself not only achieving my goals by exceeding them. But it's important to always keep daily goals," she told Harper's Bazaar.
Mia is not only a model, but an athlete who practices Muay Thai. "I live in two worlds that do not collide together at all. My Muay Thai changed my body to become much bigger and more muscular, which the fashion world rejects. Muay Thai often leaves me with bumps and bruises that I can't have while I'm modeling. Even just simple things like as a model I really must be watching what I eat but while I'm training I have to fuel my body to train. It's difficult to balance my time between, essentially, two full time jobs. But honestly at this point I love it, and I need both of these worlds in my life," she told Harper's Bazaar.
Variety in Exercise
"I personally like to mix up my workouts so I never get bored," Mia said about one of her workout tactics. "I throw in some spinning, barre, Pilates, running, crossfit and yoga. I think having an active lifestyle is great because exercise then becomes effortless. You start to want to take the stairs instead of the lift, you want to spend your free time going for walks or hikes instead of sitting on the couch watching TV — you find yourself making healthier choices without even trying. It's important to not look at exercise as a chore."
Up to Six Hour Workouts
Mia devotes a lot of time every day to exercise. "I train about three hours a day when I'm in New York, and about six hours a day when I'm in Thailand. It includes everything from cardio, to technique and drills, to strength and conditioning," she revealed.
Fueling Workouts with Proper Nutrition
Mia adapts her diet to her activity level. "I do a lot of exercise so I have a very big appetite. Depending on how hard I train that day, my diet varies. If I'm having a day at home I don't need a lot of carbohydrates and fuel and can stick to lean protein and vegetables. If I'm training for five hours in a day I need protein for recovery and carbohydrates for fuel. I also try to eat as clean as possible, I avoid processed and packaged foods. I love food and think life is too short to restrict yourself too much so I enjoy treats in moderation," she explains.
"A healthy diet to me is definitely moderation," about how she approaches her overall diet. "We eat to live but it's also an enjoyable process. Correctly fuelling your body with the right nutrients it needs, but not restricting yourself too much on the things you love. I also believe in listening to your body — if you crave chicken your body probably needs iron, if you crave sweets your body probably needs sugar. But it's about making smart decisions and keeping moderation." Her guilty pleasure? Pizza! "I love it but my body doesn't digest bread very well, so unfortunately I can only have it sometimes," she said.
