Read on to see 6 ways Michelle Monaghan stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


Her Diet Is Healthy


Michelle eats a healthy and hearty breakfast. "Breakfast is my fuel for the day. It might be a bowl of goat's-milk yogurt with granola, berries, and raisins, and maybe shaved almonds and flaxseed thrown in, and a banana smoothie," she dished to Women's Health. For lunch she loves salads. "I never ate them before I got pregnant; now I eat them three or four times a week." She also likes turkey sandwiches with avocado and a slice of Swiss cheese, and homemade soup, "broccoli, cauliflower, butternut squash—make a big batch and you have it for days." For dinner, she will feast on fish, including trout and salmon, paired with steamed or roasted veggies or brown rice. "Good ol' Iowa ribeye" is something she will indulge in on occasion. "I've never been on a diet," she added. "I don't think they make sense. Ultimately, it's eating sensibly…but if I'm at a restaurant, all bets are off!" 


She Works Out with a Trainer


Michelle works out with a trainer three days a week. During her hour-long sessions she does cable work, squats, lunges, and step-ups. "It's a push to make myself go—it's hard!" she says. "But whenever I get off my lazy butt, I'm happy I did," she says. 


She Does Pilates

"Pilates is my everyday self-care," she revealed in a recent post. She told Shape that it is "really challenging," adding. "I find that it's a good balance for my running, which makes my muscles tight. Pilates loosens me up."


She Drinks Green Juice


Michelle drinks her nutrients. "I try to drink green juice three times a week— kale, celery, spinach. Sometimes that replaces my coffee," she told Women's Health. "I also bought a Vitamix blender. It purees everything."


She Hikes

"Going on a hike with a friend or my husband works for me because it doesn't feel like exercise," Michelle told Women's Health about one of her favorite outdoor workouts. "You're catching up or having a gossip session, and time goes by quickly. This weekend my husband and I played beach volleyball with friends and worked up the greatest sweat," she told Women's Health. "Years ago, when I started working out, it was about getting my body in shape. But now the mental benefits outweigh the physical ones. That's why I love going for a hike in the morning. There's something about climbing a mountain that's symbolic-you set your intention and what you want to focus on. I think about what I have to do today or what I have to accomplish this week. It allows me that space where there's no one else around," she added to Shape. 


She Spins

Michelle is a big fan of spin class. "I also love SoulCycle. I played a Spin instructor in a movie, and at the time I thought, There's no way I'm getting on a bike. But SoulCycle had just opened in L.A., so I went with friends. The lights were off, candles were burning, and we were hooked. It's like church!"
