Moderation Is Key
Nicole maintains a healthy diet, using food as fuel. "Don't deprive yourself of anything because eventually you'll crave it and then you might binge on it. Everything in moderation," Nicole told Women's Health UK. "For breakfast I love eggs and toast and smoked salmon or bacon, or porridge. For lunch I like maybe some soup or some sushi. For dinner, anything from pasta to rice, and meats and veggies, to sushi. When I'm going to indulge, I love pasta, pizza, I love Mexican with lots of cheese. I love French fries, or crisps – salt and vinegar crisps. In terms of snacks: almonds, coconut water, bits of coconut, baby carrots."
Maintain Variety in Your Workouts
Nicole mixes up her workouts. "In a typical workout I would run on the treadmill, maybe 20 mins, then try to do some squats, some sit-ups on the exercise ball, some yoga stretches. When I'm home I like to take a spinning class called Soul Cycle or I like to do hot yoga – a modified version of bikram yoga – or hiking, and core power yoga in LA," she told Women's Health UK. She also dances. "I mean, I heard that dancing and laughing gives you better abs than crunches anyway," she wrote in a recent post.
Utilize the Workout Buddy System
Nicole enlists the help of workout buddies. "Me and my girlfriends support each other for the gym. Because, you know, it's hard to be motivated sometimes, so when you go you push each other, – we try to do different things," she explained to Women's Health UK. "We'll go hiking one day and then we'll try a sculpting hot yoga class, then we'll do a cardio. We just motivate each other."
Stay Active Outdoors
Scherzinger is a fan of outdoor activities. Her Instagram feed is filled with photos of her active adventures, including walks, hiking, and surfing.
Focus on Mental Health Benefits of Exercise
Nicole points out that exercise is so much more than just physical. "I travel so much it's so important for me to sweat it out. It's not only for physical being, but mostly for my mental well-being. It keeps me centered, focused, strong and helps me get in the right frame of mind for my work ahead. Preparation is key. Prepare yourself so when the opportunity comes, you are ready!" she wrote on Instagram.
Nicole knows the importance of getting enough sleep. "Get lots of sleep – sleep really makes such a huge difference," she told Women's Health UK.
