She Circuit Trains

Ora tells Shape that her busy schedule can affect how much time she has to workout. She also says that her current workout routine mostly consists of circuit training. "I do circuit training. I usually work out for one or two hours, depending on how much time I have. I do three circuits and repeat that three times. I mostly focus on my thighs and my bum, so I do a lot of squats and weight lifting. And I do one circuit of cardio."

Working out can take a while for someone to get results. However, Ora tells Shape that she understands that fitness takes a while, and encourages others to be patient. "What I've learned is that you can take your time with training. You don't have to beat yourself up as long as you get in the workouts that you need." Ora also says that she used to do intense workouts with little results, which caused her to change her mindset. "I used to push myself until I felt sick. But I'm approaching it differently now. I enjoy working out. And I like the aftermath-that feeling of contentment."


She Looks To Others To Motivate Her

Ora admits to Shape that she doesn't always want to work out, "Sometimes it's hard. I don't just wake up and run to the gym." However, Ora revealed the method she has to motivate herself. "When I need to motivate myself to work out, I look at pictures of women like Jennifer Lopez and Kate Beckinsale. They look incredible! If they can look like that, I have no excuse."


She Embraces Her Body

Ora admits that she used to be insecure when it comes to her body, telling Shape, "I'm not going to lie and say I was completely happy with my body before. I knew I could change a few things to improve my stamina, especially onstage." Ora says that these feelings are what pushed her to start being healthier, not the desire to lose weight. "I didn't start working out to get skinnier-I started working out to feel better. And I think it's important for women to know that. Don't be obsessed with being thin. You just have to be fit, healthy, and strong." Ora says that she's now comfortable with herself no matter how she looks, "I love my shape because it's curvy. I have thighs. I'm a size 28 in jeans. And that's an average, normal size. I'm proud that I'm normal."


She Eats Healthy


Ora says that her workouts allow her to eat a lot more than a stereotypical diet. She says to Shape, "With the plan I'm on, you can eat quite a bit as long as you exercise." However, Ora also says that she makes sure that the food she eats is healthy and filling. "In the morning, I have two boiled eggs, asparagus, and half a cup of muesli with almond milk. For lunch, I have chicken or fish with vegetables, and for dinner, I have six to eight ounces of fish with vegetables and half a potato. Plus snacks. I don't eat bread or sugar. But I'm not starving myself. I used to be like, 'I'm not eating!' Eating isn't the problem, though. It's about what your body needs, and everyone's body is different."


She Indulges Once in A While

Despite her healthy diet, Ora admits that she hasn't given up all her favorite indulgences. "I'm such a sucker for cheese and wine" she says to Shape. "I was just shooting a movie in Italy, and the pastas, the cheeses, the wine-ooh! Obviously I had to have all that good stuff. Now I indulge once a week. But I don't go crazy."
