On her current diet and how she avoids temptations:
Right now, I have to really know the difference between what I need and what I want.
I used to eat salads at lunch, and then I’d have chicken and pasta for dinner, but now it’s the opposite. I’ll have a salad with grilled chicken for lunch and then just a plain salad for dinner.
Last night I was putting little Hank to bed and I knew I had Oreos in my cabinet downstairs. I’m about to head downstairs but it was dark. We had turned off all the lights. I said to myself, ‘Do I really need this Oreo? Do I need it enough to go downstairs, turn on all the lights, reach into the cabinet? No, I don’t need it.’
Here’s an older Quote from Kendra on post-baby body image:
“I had to really look deep into myself and think more about myself,” she added. “I’m a deep thinker and there’s this thing I always think about: what if today, mirrors just went away. What if your reflection just went away? What if I had no pictures of myself? Would I feel great, would I feel pretty? And the answer is: yes I would. The mirror can play tricks on you.”
27 year-old Kendra Wilkinson shares a few thoughts on how to maintain your figure during the Holiday season:
Between Christmas cookies and cocktail parties, plus all the heavy holiday meals in between, it can be easy to put on a few pounds during the holiday season. Don’t let it happen! Here’s how to make it to 2013 with a flat belly … Start every day with breakfast and a short workout. Eating breakfast will rev up your metabolism for the day and a short run or a 20-minute yoga session in the morning boosts your energy and keeps your appetite in check for the rest of the day. Never go to a party hungry. Eat a small meal before attending cocktail parties, dinner parties, or any events where food will be served. Holiday appetizers are usually fried, stuffed with cheese, or full of sugar. Taste what you want but never make a meal of party appetizers. You need to drink lots of water! Particularly if you’re drinking cocktails, pace yourself and drink a glass of water between alcoholic beverages. If you’re drinking cocktails, have a few sips of your favorite seasonal drink, like eggnog, or apple cider, then switch to something lower calorie like vodka soda with a lime wedge.’
