Reese Witherspoon in Workout Gear Says "Thank You for the Cuddles"

"Thank you for the cuddles, support & love: Minnie, Willy, Izzy, Benji, and Major!”

Reese Witherspoon is heating up social media in her sports bra! In a new social media post the actress hugs her pooch post-workout session in celebration of National Pet Day. "I've met many animals on this life journey, all have so much meaning to me. ❤️ Thank you for the cuddles, support & love: Minnie, Willy, Izzy, Benji, and Major!" she captioned the Instagram post. How does the actress, 48, approach diet and fitness? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 



Reese starts with a healthy approach to her body. "In my 30s, I learned to accept my body for what it is. This is what looks good on it. It will never look good in that thing over there with all the fabric and the bows and the ruffles. It just won't," she told InStyle.



"Start the day with a big glass of water," Reese exclaimed in an Instagram Reel detailing her health habits. Why should you prioritize hydration? The Mayo Clinic explains that it is important for a variety of reasons. Water helps get rid of waste through urination, perspiration, and bowel movements, keeps your temperature normal, lubricates and cushions joints, and helps protect sensitive tissues.


No Crash Diets


Reese tries to eat healthy but doesn't go to extreme measures. "I don't believe in crash dieting or anything like that," Reese told Us Weekly."I just have a green juice and a coffee in the morning," she added to Radio Times. She loves nutritionist Kim Snyder's Glowing Green Smoothie, which consists of spinach, romaine lettuce, celery, apple, pear, banana, and lemon juice. "I start every day with a Glowing Green Smoothie and so does my whole family!" she wrote in a testimonial on Snyder's website


Strength Training and Cardio

"I work out all the time anyway just to stay healthy," Reese told Us Weekly. She does strength training sessions with trainer Michael George, who told Shape that she does cardio for 30 minutes six times per week. Reese also revealed to Radio Times that she wakes up at 5:30 a.m. so she can work out by 7:30 a.m. "I probably do that six days a week," she said.


She Prioritizes Sleep

Reese is in bed by 10pm, with "no late night TV binges," she says in her Instagram Reel. "Try to get  8 hours of rest!" The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveal that a third of US adults report that they get less than the recommended amount of sleep—seven hours for adults per the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. "Not getting enough sleep is linked with many chronic diseases and conditions—such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and depression," the CDC explains.
