HIIT Workouts Are Her Go-To
Molly claims that amping up weight training helped her slim down. "I used to be that girl who wouldn't pick up the 2-lb weights at SoulCycle with the fear that I'd bulk. That mentality has shifted drastically," she revealed in one of her blog posts. In a video for Women's Health she outlined her morning routine: A few minutes of meditation with coffee followed by exercise at 6:30 am.
She Loves This 20-Minute Workout
"On good days, workout. On bad days, workout harder," she captioned an Instagram video, revealing her go-to short and intense workout. "Today's circuit is what I do when I just have 20 minutes with @lauralizkeller [Sims' personal trainer] to get it in and still break a sweat!" The short-but-intense workout involves 45 seconds intervals of the following, with the entire set repeated two to three times: jumping jacks, modified push ups, tricep dips, squat jumps, leg raises, burpees, abd lateral bend and hold – all while using ankle and wrist weights the entire time.
Molly Doesn't Diet
Molly opts for smart lifestyle choices over a strict diet. It's more about living healthy and how you're feeling," she explained to Women's Health. "I truly, truly don't like the word 'diet.' I don't even like the scale. I use a pair of jeans; the jeans don't lie I can tell you that."
She Fuels Up with Healthy Fats
"I would have never eaten an avocado 10 years ago if you paid me," she revealed to Health. "Like, are you joking? But now, instead of binging [and] not eating all day, eat it and then you won't binge."
She Does Intermittent Fasting
Molly is a fan of intermittent fasting, eating her first meal of the day, a smoothie with blueberries, almond milk, Vital Proteins protein, and greens, at noon. She tries to stop eating by 7 p.m.
She Avoids Sugar
Molly avoids sugar and opts to load up on veggies, lean proteins, and fruits. "I tend to stay away from anything super sugary, like orange juice grapefruit juice, because it really spikes me," she told Women's Health. "I try to stay away from dried fruits; it's ultimately full of sugar."
She Is Gluten-Minimum
While she doesn't maintain a gluten-free diet, she keeps her gluten intake to a minimum "I try to cut out as much gluten as I can," she explains. "It's not that I'm celiac; I just feel better when I have less of it,"she explained to Women's Health.
