She Doesn't Listen to Body Shamers

After an Instagram troll commented that she was too thin,  Paulina made it clear that she doesn't let body shamers get to her. "For those of you who are tempted to tell me to eat a burger, I'm tempted to tell you NOT to eat one. But won't. Body shaming is so last decade. Let's celebrate who we are, wrinkles and imperfections and all," she wrote in the caption. 


She Eats Clean

"I live reasonably clean- don't much enjoy processed foods, but love a variety and do love my cakes," she wrote in a recent Instagram post


She Starting Exercising at 40

"I started exercising when I was 40. I never did anything before that. Just cigarettes and poor nutrition. I could eat whatever I wanted because I smoked. Cindy [Crawford] would be there sweating and working out, and she had a fabulous body that she worked for and I was just like, 'Oh, that's stupid.' I had a good time being unhealthy for a while, but then you pay for it," she told Elle. Now she maintains a moderate approach to exercise. "I work out – try for at least three ones a week- sometimes less, sometimes more. I now mostly do Pilates, with some dancing or biking thrown in for cardio. That's it," she said in the above Instagram post.  


Exercise Boosts Her Mental Health

Paulina maintains that exercising keeps her off of antidepressants. "I found out if I worked out every day my anxiety was kept a lot at bay. And I felt better. So how great is that?" she told Elle. 


She Loves to Dance

Paulina's favorite form of cardio is dance. "I still dance. I've done boxing. I've done rowing. You name it, I've done it. Except for running. I don't like running. It doesn't feel good to me. It feels bad on my knees," she told Elle. "I'd rather do Zumba. And Bollywood dancing is a great way to get the aerobic part done. I do some really hard rowing classes. It's become something that's like brushing my teeth. It's something I have to do."


She Does Pilates

Pilates is another workout Paulina loves. She recently revealed in an Instagram post that she is a fan of the Nofar Method, a New York City based studio. 


She Drinks Alcohol Occasionally


"I drink wine and cocktails. I smoked until I was forty. ( Sorry to say. Of course I quit when pregnant and nursing- but my husband was an unapologetic smoker- and it was easier to do as he did instead of fighting about it)," she wrote on Instagram.
