She Circuit Trains
Parker revealed some of her wellness secrets in an interview with Us Weekly. She says that she likes to circuit train, because of her busy schedule. "My workout circuits are easy, you can do them in hotel rooms in your pajamas," she says. "Ten lunges, 10 pushups, jumping jacks four times."
She Uses A Waist Trainer
In her Us Weekly interview, Parker revealed some of her favorite wellness and workout products. She says that because of her busy schedule, she doesn't always have time to workout. She says that waist training has helped her stay in shape when she's not exercising. "I discovered the McDavid Waist Trainer Ab Belt through [trainer] Alicia Marie. She told me about this Velcro belt that you wear all the time and it helps you keep your stomach contracted while you're driving and running errands or working out. So my posture is always great, and I'm activating my abs even when I'm just driving my kids around."
She Uses A Face Roller
Parker has amazing skin, and revealed one of her favorite products to Us Weekly. "The jade face roller is an attempt to keep my skin tight and beautiful without going under the knife. I am trying to find every possible thing to do that. I found this roller on a beauty blog. I like to keep it in the fridge and use it when I watch my favorite show. I make it work all together I'm a mother of two so finding time for beauty can be tough! I also have the SK-II mask — it is great for after working out."
She Takes Collagen and Vitamin C
Parker revealed her favorite supplements to Us Weekly. She says that she has discovered that a combination of collagen and vitamin C helped her best. "Some people say the collagen doesn't work, some people say it does. I love that the Great Lakes Gelatin collagen powder I have is kosher, and I swear I can feel it in my bones and my hair. I think a lot of reasons people think their collagen powder isn't working, is you have to take collagen with pure vitamin C. I started taking vitamin C packets gel packets and I mix it in the water with the powder."
She Does Small Workouts Each Day
Parker revealed how she dropped 20 pounds to Parade. She says that she avoids doing cleanses and excessive workouts. Instead, Parker says that she does small workouts each day and just aims to eat a healthy diet. "Instead of cramming a 20-pound weight loss into a 30-day juice fast, I realized that if I eat right and dedicate 15 minutes of every day to my workout, the weeks go by and the weight falls off."
