Make Fitness a Priority
Jordana prioritizes fitness, getting up early to make sure she gets a workout in. "I get up at, like, 5:15 a.m. every morning to run. I like treadmills—it hurts my knees too much to run outside. [My mom] is still a member at [a gym]. She's in her mid-60s, and she works out. So I really got that from her, and I still defer to her," she told Health.
Use an Activity Tracker
Jordana is a longtime client of Harley Pasternak, who is a big proponent of activity tracking. He even sets step goals for her. "I also go on hikes, which is really nice. I need to get steps in," she said. "I need to be outside and breathing fresh air. I'm so lucky that I live in L.A., where I can do that, because otherwise I would go absolutely stir-crazy."
Work Out Hard
Jordana takes her workouts seriously, often posting about them on Instagram. They involve a lot of weights, squats, and ab exercises. "I work out six days a week. I like to change up my workout so I never get bored," she told Hollywood Life. "Once a week, I take a class at Body by Simone. I love dance classes and body sculpting classes. It's just fun to get in a room and dance and listen to good music."
Don't Focus on the Numbers
Jordana isn't a fan of counting calories or obsessing over the number on the scale. "I am a control freak, so I went through phases where I was obsessed with the number on the scale and I didn't want to deviate. I was never anorexic, but I was definitely too controlled to be healthy," she revealed to Health. "Now, I just try to think about modeling good behavior for my kids, who love treats. And, paying attention to if I am full or just eating mindlessly."
Wellness Is All About Balance
Wellness "is all about balance and feeling comfortable in your skin," Jordana explained to Health. "I think that sometimes you have to be shaken out of complacency to get back to wellness. Like, for example, I love sugar so much—I am a sugar junkie. Recently, Harley said to me, 'You need to figure this out.' I appreciated his bluntness because he was right. I would have Swedish Fish with my kids—and M&M's and Tootsie Rolls are my weakness. And I was often replacing lunch with frozen yogurt instead of actual food. Not great."
Don't Drink Your Calories
"I hate smoothies, and I hate juices," she told Health. "I like chewing. So I steam tons of vegetables and add avocado. And then I have soup with chicken or salmon for at least one of my meals. And then I'm getting all my vegetables in one meal, and I don't really have to worry about it after that. So it's about checking in and making sure you're living as balanced a life as possible."
Clean eating is very important to Jordana. "I try to eat as natural as possible, and I try to eat organic," Jordana dished to Hollywood Life. "I also try to avoid processed food."
