Teigen has brought up the topic of her drinking a few times over the years. In September, Teigen revealed on Instagram that she was "50 days sober," after slipping up. "It should be nearly a year but I had a few (wine) hiccups in the road. this is my longest streak yet! I still dunno if I'll never drink again but I do know it no longer serves me in ANY way. I don't get more fun, I don't dance, I don't get relaxed. I get sick, fall asleep and wake up sick, having missed what was probably a fun night. I had my fun with it and appreciate anyone that can enjoy it responsibly!!!!" 


Don't Diet

Chrissy has given up dieting. "I've lived a whole life. I've spent way too many years counting calories, scheduling way too many workouts and trying to figure out what my term for wellness was for myself," she told People. "I've been trying to figure that out for so so long."


Stay Active


Teigen maintains an active lifestyle. "I do love yoga and pilates now but the balance in it is really nice because it's nice to be able to kill two birds by playing with my kids and getting that activity in honestly. To me that's more fun," she told People. 


Don't Pay Attention to Numbers

Teigan tries not to stress about the number on the scale. "Since I was 20 years old, I had this weight in my mind that I am, or that I'm supposed to be. I've been so used to that number for 10 years now. And then I started realizing it was a swimsuit-model weight. There's a very big difference between wanting to be that kind of fit and wanting to be happy-fit," she told Women's Health.


Work Out with a Trainer

Teigen trains with Simone De La Rue, who revealed her full-body workout to The workout includes static planks, shoulder presses, and jump squats, and is a mix of cardio, leg workouts, and butt workouts.  We wanna use correct technique and correct form because that's the way you see results," De La Rue explained. 


Drink Green Juice


Teigen drinks green. "I love green juices—the ones that include lots of actual greens and don't include too much apple," she told  Shape. "Because those are just meant to be yummy and we all know things that are too yummy aren't the best for us unfortunately."
