This is Her Workout Schedule
"Typically, if we have a good filming schedule where she has availability, we'll work out between 5-7 days, which is a lot. But she takes a lot of time off when she's busy," said Jennifer Yates, her trainer, to Marie Claire. "It's fine to give yourself a break—your body comes back stronger. You have to let your body rest, even if you're working out a few days during the week. That's why we rotate with Sofia. We have days in between when she rests. If you exhaust the muscles, you're more prone to getting injured."
She Was Diagnosed With Thyroid Cancer
"At 28 years old during a routine doctor's visit, the doctor felt a lump in my neck. They did a lot of tests and finally told me tat I had thyroid cancer," Vergara said. "When you're young and you hear that word 'cancer,' your mind goes to so many places. But I tried not to panic, and I decided to get educated. I read every book and found out everything I could about it." She added: "I was fortunate to have caught it early and to have the support of my doctors and, most importantly, my family. I learned a lot during that time. Not just about thyroid cancer, but I also learned that in times of crisis, we're better together"
She Does Pilates
"I do Pilates. I'm in a bad mood two hours before and while I'm doing it and then I'm done, because I know I have to come back and do it again," she told Redbook. "I'm always asking Joe, 'Why do people always say they feel great working out?' I just want to go home and lie down."
She Enjoys Sushi
"All types of fish contain protein, but only some have omega-3 fats. These healthy fats benefit your heart by reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease or blood clots. Additionally, they provide brain boosts and have anti-inflammatory properties. Mackerel is a good source of omega-3 fats, as is salmon, tuna and eel," says the Cleveland Clinic. "Sushi rolls with avocado are also good sources of monounsaturated fat, another heart-healthy fat that can reduce bad cholesterol."
She Promotes Mammograms
"And just to make today more stressful I went and got my mammogram 😖😖 #allgood 👍 #dontforgetyours❤️," she once captioned a post. "A mammogram is an X-ray image of your breasts. It can be used either for breast cancer screening or for diagnostic purposes, such as to investigate symptoms or unusual findings on another imaging test," says the Mayo Clinic. "A traditional mammogram creates two-dimensional images of the breast. A newer type of mammogram called a 3D mammogram (breast tomosynthesis) creates three-dimensional images of the breast. Many medical facilities offer the 3D mammogram in addition to the traditional 2D mammogram for breast cancer screening."
