She Works Out Daily
Blanca is devoted to fitness. "I aim to work out five times a week and usually early in the day," she told Women Fitness. "I find a combination of running for 20 minutes and light weight training for 45 minutes is the best workout for me. It's toning, energizing, and helps me to avoid burn out because I can focus on different areas of my body during each work out." Her favorite body part to train? "My favorite body part to train is legs because I always see fast results. I train on various machines at the gym, sometimes with a trainer when learning new techniques, but mostly I love taking my work out as an opportunity to be present and have me-time."
She Eats Healthy
Blanca does diet. Healthy eating is a "lifestyle" for her. "I usually eat every three hours or so and I include protein with every meal to keep my energy levels consistent," she told Women Fitness. What does a day in her eating life look like? "For breakfast, I often have an egg white omelette with lots of veggies – tomatoes, onions, and green bell peppers – and a cup of tea. I haven't had coffee in over 14 years. For lunch, I love rice, grilled salmon or another protein, and more veggies. For dinner, I usually have grilled chicken and grilled veggies, and I always eat it before 6pm. I snack regularly throughout the day on high energy food like fruit or cheese. I eat much the same on weekends, but I love to add in Mexican food for some extra spice and variety."
She Tried the "South Italian Diet"
Per the Daily Mail, the actress once tried the South Italian Diet, consisting mostly of seafood. "Have you tried the South Italian Diet? Omg love it… It includes eating clean seafood and red meat only 1x week. It's similar to 80/20 diet. It's super healthy and I even ate my first octopus," she reportedly said on social media.
She Has Learned to Shut Out Body Shamers
Blanca experienced body shaming during middle and high school. "I was told I was too skinny, too bony, not curvy enough, my legs were too long, my eyebrows were too bushy, my waist was too small, and the list went on," she told Women Fitness. "Body shaming is linked to depression and anxiety and I remember how hurtful it was. I even asked my doctor if he could prescribe me medication to gain weight because it affected me so much. Luckily, I was able to recognize that when people criticize others, they are usually projecting their own insecurities on you to make themselves feel better about their own issues. I learned to ignore them and focused instead on loving myself. I decided that if I was going to change anything about my body, it would be for me. It wouldn't be for external validation. I still experience body shaming regularly in the entertainment industry but can ignore it and focus on my work, my health, and positivity."
She Prioritizes Self-Care
Blanca takes time out of her busy life for self-care. "I treat my day off as a recharge and a mental check. I reflect on how my week's schedule turned out then write down both the things that worked well and the things that have area for improvement. Self-care is a priority for me. I love to go for a hike or recharge at the spa to destress and decompress," she told Women Fitness.
