She Doesn't Skip Breakfast


Sara doesn't skip her breakfast. Even pancakes are not off the menu. She tells The Cut, "My favorite breakfast is two sunny-side-up eggs with avocado toast. According to Cleveland Clinic, "Starting your day with a protein-rich meal may keep you full longer and help you avoid snacking — which could help keep away unwanted pounds." So, before you run out the door, ensure you get some protein in.

Sara shares with The Cut that she practices SLT (Strengthen, Lengthen, Tone). She describes it as, "a really intense Pilates with a machine." She goes on to say, "I've noticed with my body that small movements have done more for my body than the boot camps. My body moves better when it's very focused on small movements that elongate your body and your muscles."


Get Your 8 Hours of Sleep

With The Cut Sara confides that she is a big believer in getting her sleep. She says, "Your skin regenerates, your eyes are brighter and bigger, you know? Sleeping is a reset of your body." Per SCL Health, "When your body gets the sleep it needs, your immune cells and proteins get the rest they need to fight off whatever comes their way — like colds or the flu."


Treat Yourself

The model is a big believer in treating her skin with care. She tells The Cut "I really love using oils and serums on my face — adding vitamins and things I'm missing like that." It's now wonder her skin has that youthful glow


Cardio Exercises

Through Youtube Sara shows of her stealthy kickboxing skills. Being on the move is key here. She takes the viewers though some jump rope exercises as well. If that isn't motivation to get on your work-out gear, we don't know what is! "Jumping rope can increase the elasticity and resiliency of lower-leg muscles, leading to a reduced risk of lower-leg injuries. Calf raises can strengthen the lower leg, but if the muscle tissue becomes too tight it could increase the risk of a number of lower-leg injuries including achilles tendon strain or plantar fasciitis. Jumping rope regularly strengthens the calf muscles and improves the elasticity of the surrounding tendons and fascia. To increase elasticity, try to land on the ball of the foot first, but let your heels go all of the way down to the ground," says ACE Fitness.
