Eva Longoria: “I always wish my trainer doesn’t show up”

evalongoriahealth - Eva Longoria: "I always wish my trainer doesn’t show up"

On her workouts:

I’m a runner, first of all. I run a lot. But I also do SoulCycle, Pilates, yoga. I usually mix it up. Now I’m starting with weight training. I kind of laid off the weights for a while, but I went to my nutritionist the other day, and she was like, “Your muscle mass is low. You need to build muscle.” And I’m like “Oh man…”

On her favorite exercises:

I don’t like moves that incorporate a lot of stuff. Like, “Lunge while you’re pressing and balancing,” and I’m like, “Uuuugh. I just want to do a biceps curl.” I don’t enjoy working out. I like the way I feel after working out. I always wish my trainer doesn’t show up. I’m always like, “I hope he cancels, I hope he cancels…”

On body positivity:

We do have a lot of pressure when people are telling us what we should look like. And I think you have to find your own truth. I don’t feel like we should go by these rules and social constructs of society, where you have to be a certain size to be pretty. But I’ve had friends who don’t work out or take care of themselves, and all of a sudden, there’s a health issue.

I used to hate my pear-ish shape but seeing her torso makes me feel grateful for it – sorry if that sounds too mean. Totally agree about having a hard time to get motivated for a workout, showing up is always the hardest part for me.

Bashing her body type and comparing with other women motivates you, that’s great! I think that’s a great sign of a healthy body image and source of self-esteem!

you’re on a website that exists to judge other people’s bodies, don’t act all morally superior like you haven’t compared yourself to other women before

I’m not morally superior, that’s what YOU are taking of my comment, the fact that I’m pointing out the contradiction on her doesn’t mean I don’t have my own and I don’t have issues. I’ve said it before.

And it’s not just the “comparing with other women”, if I insult someone to praise myself, and someone calls me out for it, I would deserve it.

Huh? She never said bashing another woman’s body motivates her. I honestly prefer mine much more to eva’s as well, why does that make me a bad person?

She said she’s grateful for having her shape instead of eva’s…which may sound mean, I suppose, but she’s just being honest.

Oh, come on, now you’re playing naive. “I used to HATE my body but SEEING HERS makes me feel grateful for mine”. No, I didn’t say she was a bad person, I said it wasn’t healthy. Yes, it sounds mean and she’s being honest, but being honest doesn’t automatically makes it ok. It’s offensive to Eva and every woman that has her body shape, and unhealthy. I’m not saying you have to prefer Eva’s body over yours, just that you shouldn’t find your self esteem finding flaws on other women and writing it on the internet. We shouldn’t have to… Read more »

Well yeah, women shouldn’t derive high self-esteem from bashing another woman’s looks. Personally, pointing out that Eva’s body is square shaped doesn’t effect my self-esteem in one way or another. She shouldn’t have phrased it that way. Point taken. But I find physical flaws in many people (including myself) all the time, it’s just part of life. I mean, I feel grateful that I have all my hair when I see bald people, but it’s not a putdown of bald people. I don’t think I’m better than anyone based on any physical flaws. Nothing wrong with feeling a sense of… Read more »

Nothing wrong with a sense of gratitude, I’m not talking about that. I’m talking about putting other people down to feel better about yourself. And yes, she could’ve worded it better, I agree.

I’m sorry my comment upset you. I should have phrased it differently and in a more sensitive way. Mistakes like this can happen when you’re on the spectrum and not a native English speaker. I’m not saying that her shape is bad, just that it’s not my preference (nowadays) and that I am grateful to have a shape closer to what i *personally* consider ideal.

Thanks for answering Annie. I get it, English is also my second language.

MOst women aren’t an hourglass;
The majority of women are a rectangle shape (63%); only 13% of women are an hourglass shape, and 7% are pear shaped (the two shapes with a defined waist)

no photoshop on that cover at all, her nutritionist is right she needs some muscle that would balance her shape out some

I know we live in the era of editing and photoshop, but health and fitness magazines should really stay away from it. Why would I even bother to buy a magazine if I can tell all the pictures are fake?
