Don't Put Off Exercise
Khloé doesn't put off her first workout of the day. She tries to get her sweat on first thing in the morning, before everyone else is up. "Usual sister workout with @kimkardashian and @coachjoe.paris," Khloé captioned a recent image from a climbing machine. "Got to get it in before the kids wake up."
Do Workout Prep
Just like some people meal prep, Khloé workout preps. "I have my waters that I always [line up] the night before," she told Byrdie. "I make sure that everything is lined up, ready to go, and simplified because I want to make happy, healthy habits. It's so simple, but I notice that when I don't do these things how crummy or sluggish I'll feel." She also lays out her workout outfit. "Do everything you can to make it a little easier for your future self."
Don't Set Huge Goals
Khloé recommends goal-setting but starting small. "What I say to everyone is baby steps," she told Byrdie. "When I first started, I was like 'Okay, Monday is day one. I'm not going to eat any carbs or sugar or anything.' [I realized] that's too intense. Start small, and any step is at least a step forward."
Do Change Your Lifestyle
Health transformations like Khloé's don't happen overnight. "For me it was a lifestyle change—it wasn't like, 'I'm going to lose 30 pounds in 30 days,'" she said. "That's unrealistic, unsafe, and you're setting yourself up for failure. I would say instead, 'I'm going to start incorporating collagen protein into my coffee in the morning.' It's just one thing. I would do that for two weeks, and then say 'Okay, I'm going to do the collagen in my coffee and drink three liters of water per day.' Whatever they may be, set small goals. Try one new healthy habit every two weeks and then keep adding to them until you're in a really good place. I think we all at first get so excited and take on more than is realistic. And then we fail and we're bummed about it. But if you set these small goals, you get really proud of yourself. You're like 'Okay, I did that and I feel really good.' Then you're inspired and you add one more."
Don't Forget About the Mental Health Benefits of Exercise
"I've realized that I have to work out at least five days a week for my mental health," Khloé told Byrdie. "Of course a byproduct is losing weight or seeing this great muscle here or there. But I've realized it's more about the stress relief that I get. It's more about the accomplished feeling that I get—I set my mind to do something, I woke up, I did it, and now I feel great."
Don't Eat Big Portionsl
"I kind of eat what I want, but in portion control, which I never knew before. It's really hard," she told PEOPLE. "You have to train your body to eat less. Your eyes are bigger than your stomach."
Do Drink Lots of Water
Khloé makes sure to drink enough water. "I had to train myself to drink more water. I drink like 5 liters of water a day," she revealed to PEOPLE. "I yell at [Kylie] and Kendall [Jenner] to drink more water."
Don't Focus on the Numbers
Khloé doesn't obsess over the numbers on the scale. "I don't believe that a weight defines you. I don't weigh myself, because I don't care what number I am," she told Entertainment Tonight. "I think to be happy comes from within … There's so many miserable people that are thin and they're hungry!
Do Jump Rope
"I love jumping rope. I love to hate it. [Trainer] Don will say, 'In five minutes, you need to do 800 jumps.' I was like, 'That's easy,' but no, it's the hardest," she told Health. "I'm drenched, and I can't breathe, and my arms hurt, but for me it's a full-body workout. Running is my least favorite thing."
You won't find Khloé on crash diets. "I want to say about food, it's this: Don't diet. When you diet, you are basically setting yourself up for failure. I mean, the word die is in there!" she wrote in her book, Strong Looks Better Naked. "You're not allowing yourself to enjoy the food you love, and it will only make you want it that much more. Make smart lifestyle changes, one baby step at a time."
