Here is One of Her Actual Workouts
"On good days, workout. On bad days, workout harder," she once posted on Instagram. "Today's circuit is what I do when I just have 20 minutes with @lauralizkeller to get it in and still break a sweat!
+ Jumping jacks 45 seconds
+ Modified pushups 45 seconds
+ Tricep dips 45 seconds
+ Squat jumps 45 seconds
+ Leg raises 45 seconds
+ Burpees 45 seconds
+ Lateral bend and hold (squeezing abs) 45 seconds
Used ankle & wrist weights the entire time. Repeat circuit 2-3 times"
She Makes Sure She Sweats
"I used to be that girl who wouldn't pick up the two-pound weights at SoulCycle with the fear that I'd bulk [up]," Sims has admitted. "That mentality has shifted drastically." "I always tell people you don't have to work out an hour every day," she noted, "but I do make sure I sweat."
She Starts Her Morning with Coffee
This is a good idea. Some studies have "found a possible association between coffee and decreased mortality. Coffee may offer some protection against:
- Parkinson's disease
- Type 2 diabetes
- Liver disease, including liver cancer
- Heart attack and stroke," says the Mayo Clinic.
Just try not to have caffeine in the afternoon, as it may disrupt sleep.
She Supplements With Reishi Mushrooms
"Although they've become trendy in the past few years, functional mushrooms—aka ones that support overall health and well-being—have been used for medicinal purposes for centuries. One of the most popular functional mushrooms is undoubtedly the reishi mushroom, an ancient adaptogen that plays a big role in Chinese healing traditions. Adaptogens are essentially plants and herbs that help our bodies 'adapt' to stress by regulating our biological response to stress," says our sister site Eat This, Not That!
She Takes a Magnesium Supplement
"I love anything with my magnesium," says Molly on Mollysims.com. "I recently started using the Moon Juice Magnesi-Om. It's great for sleep. It's restorative. It dissolves in water. You can take it cold or you can make it hot. I was having a little bit of anxiety so my general practitioner, who specializes in autoimmune, is the one who told me about it. It tastes like berries, and it's really good. When you have three kids under 9 years old, it's really important to try (even though difficult) to get a little bit of sleep."
She Gets in 2 or 3 HIIT Workouts, Early in the Morning
Sims starts at 6:30AM, for her workout. "It's not as complicated as you might think. Interval training is simply alternating short bursts (about 30 seconds) of intense activity with longer intervals (about 1 to 2 minutes) of less intense activity," says the Mayo Clinic. "For instance, if your exercise is walking and you're in good shape, you might add short bursts of jogging into your regular brisk walks. If you're less fit, you might alternate leisurely walking with periods of faster walking. For example, if you're walking outdoors, you could walk faster between certain mailboxes, trees or other landmarks."
She Drinks a Smoothie After a Workout
Sims drinks a smoothie made from almond milk, collagen protein, pea protein and blueberries, post-workout. "Collagen is obviously important, considering it's the most abundant protein in the body. And like most molecules, it has more than one responsibility: It makes up joint-supporting connective tissues, is responsible for skin elasticity, and helps maintain the lining of the digestive tract, to name a few," says our sister site Eat This, Not That!
