View Exercise As Self-Care
Christina focuses on the mental health benefits of exercise just as much as the physical. "Exercise is my stress reliever," she told People. "There is nothing like a good three-mile run for me to really clear my head and get my endorphins going."
Christina revealed to Country Living that she loves running. "I usually take my French bulldog [Cash] for a three-mile jog in my neighborhood," she said. "It takes about 30 minutes — it's a great workout. It keeps me in shape and I feel like it helps clear my head for the day."
Christina maintains that one of the keys to fitness success is maintaining regularity. "I'm a creature of habit," she told Country Living.
Try an Orangetheory Class
Christina is a proponent of a particular workout with studios nationwide. "I discovered Orangetheory and I'm totally hooked!" she told People. "It combines running, which is my favorite workout, with weight training, which I never do on my own. It goes by super quickly and is always challenging. And it helped to get me in the best shape of my 30s!"
Eat Clean and Organic
Christina maintains a "very clean, organic diet," she revealed to People. She limits gluten and dairy. "I eat five small meals a day that usually consist of overnight oats for breakfast, a green juice for a snack, salad with a protein for lunch, granola bar as a snack and then a healthy dinner of chicken or salmon and veggies, tacos or vegan chili. For a little dessert, I love Justin's Organic Mini Peanut Butter Cups — delish!"
Focus On Daily, Light Exercise
"You don't need to work out for hours at a time every day to see great results; your body knows best when it comes to choosing what type of exercise to do; and exercise isn't just about physical transformation," Christina explains in her book, recommending walking or yoga and pilates classes. "Since I started scaling back, I have felt way better. I still get the benefits of exercise — mental and physical — and even though I'm working out way less often and with less intensity, I still wear the same size clothes."
Make Water Accessible
In order to drink the recommended 80 ounces of water per day suggested by Clark, Christina has a hack. "For me, the key is to make it easily accessible all day long," she explains. "I keep a giant bottle of water with me at all times so I can chug some before I leave for work, while I'm on set, and again on my way home. I also make sure it's the only thing I'm drinking during the day."
