She Starts Her Days With Eggs
"Eggs are very convenient and a great source of proteins," Julia Zumpano, RD, of Cleveland Clinic, tells the Cleveland Clinic. "We certainly recommend you can safely eat eggs regularly; but we max it out at about four to six egg yolks in a week – that's an average of less than an egg a day." She added: "We have to look at the whole picture," said Zumpano. "Even with this most recent study, the recommendation, from a cardiovascular standpoint, still has not changed; we still follow that same guideline of a range of two to six egg yolks a week."
She Seizes the Day Early
"I grocery-shop in the morning. I like to make decisions for my line then, too. My mind is fresh," she once told Self. "If you exercise in the morning, get up early enough to finish breakfast at least one hour before your workout. This will give you energy and raise your blood sugar. If you don't eat, you might feel sluggish or lightheaded when you exercise. Good breakfast options include whole-grain cereals or bread, bananas, and yogurt. A cup of coffee is OK, too. Emphasize carbohydrates for maximum energy," says the Mayo Clinic.
She Does Yoga
"I do yoga, Pilates [and] The Bar Method. I stay motivated by making workouts part of my routine—I just do it!" she told Self. "When considering the benefits of Pilates, the same principles apply for non-dancers," Leanne Wonesh, an athletic trainer at Houston Methodist, tells Houston Methodist. "We humans tend to live along a single plane of movement, working the same muscles every day. These repetitive movements are what make us so leg and chest dominant. The goal of Pilates is to balance your muscles by targeting and strengthening the ones you don't usually use in your day-to-day life but would benefit from them being stronger."
Pilates are Good for You
"Pilates sessions are individualized to the participant's strength, flexibility and conditioning level. So, whether you are a senior looking to gain awareness, strength, balance and stability, or whether you are an elite athlete looking to maximize functional training through core strength, stamina and flexibility, Pilates can help," says Ochsner Health.
She Loves Color
"I am a fan of color! My style leans toward Brazilian bohemian meets Malibu chic," she had said. "Colors indeed have an effect on whether people feel warm, cool, calm, invited, relaxed, or uninvited. The analysis of this result supports the findings of the pink prison experiment. According to the study, when inmates were placed in cells that were painted in bright pink color, they became less aggressive. Majority of respondents in the above questions agreed they felt either warm or restless in the spaces they found themselves. Concerning the rest of the questions, it is obvious that the students agreed that communication was strengthened in the Break Point or courtyard. And according to most respondents' opinions and reminiscence, events that took place within the complex remained vivid in their memory," said one study.
