Julianne Hough: “My favorite body part is probably my stomach because it never really gets rolls”

juliannehoughusmag - Julianne Hough: "My favorite body part is probably my stomach because it never really gets rolls"

On why she works out:

To workout used to be [about] what I look like. Now I need it for my mental health. If I don’t work out, I don’t feel like I started my day correctly [or] am in a good place mentally. It’s all about taking time for myself. It’s so much more fun now.

On her favorite workouts:

Dance cardio stuff, Body by Simon or Tracy Anderson. I go to dance classes. I mix it up all the time, that shocks your body.

On her favorite body part:

I actually fluctuate quite regularly. I distribute my weight very evenly. It looks like I’ve only gained five pounds but in fact I’ve gained 15. My favorite body part is probably my stomach because it never really gets rolls. It’s a blessing and curse to have weight [distributed] evenly.

On her workout secret:

A lot of people focus on goals. More recently it’s become a lifestyle rather than a diet [or] a goal for something. I don’t want to fluctuate because that’s harder work. I don’t think I’ll do a pre-wedding workout diet fad thing. I want to look like me.

On eating carbs constantly:

[Carbs] at every single meal. I think when you deprive yourself, that’s when you crave pasta and pizza. Everybody is so afraid of carbs – they talk about them in a negative way, like, ‘Carbs make me fat or bloated’ – but just pick the right one and have a little bit.

Zoe Saldana: “I’ve never thought of a person as ugly unless they opened their mouth and their heart was full of venom”

zoe-cover-1000-752x1024 - Zoe Saldana: "I’ve never thought of a person as ugly unless they opened their mouth and their heart was full of venom"

On working out:

Between travel, meetings, and shoots, schedules are rough for me. I try to work out three times a week, but I don’t believe in getting on one machine for 30 minutes. If I do a lot of cardio, it usually just means I’ll be dragging my feet for the rest of the day. And when I’m shooting, I really don’t like to be strict with my workout, since I’m already putting in 16-hour days. So I do 20-minute intervals either at the gym or at home, where I run in place for 30 seconds, then do squats, then carry a heavy medicine ball a few times in a row until I get my heart rate up.

On her lifestyle:

I can’t work out regularly, so I compensate by eating a lot healthier than I might otherwise. Once you have relatively healthy eating habits, your workout can become playing with your kids, strolling around the neighborhood, playing airplane, or just changing diapers.

On not believing in diets:

I don’t believe in cheat days because I don’t believe in diets. I try not to deprive my body of anything, because the moment I have just salads and protein for a few days, I crave carbs. But when I eat everything in balance, I think less about food and more about everything else. It’s about eating to live, not living to eat.

On her food philosophy:

If my husband and I had different professions, where we didn’t need to shop in supermarkets and could live more naturally, we could eat more sustainably. I grew up partially in the Dominican Republic, and I remember what eating was like when my grandma would pick herbs from her garden and we’d get seafood that had been caught that morning. Life was very simple and much healthier. It’s not that I like to eat superlight, just superclean. I like food that is fresh. I don’t go for things that come in can—and I’m losing trust in things that come in plastic. And we’re starting to move in the direction of becoming a vegetarian family; society has a very violent, dysfunctional, and wrong relationship with how we cultivate and produce meat. So if I have to pay more to eat better, then I’ll just balance my checkbook better. For example, I’d rather get the dark chocolate with goji berries than the milk chocolate packed with saturated fat.

On her idea of beauty:

If we could design ourselves, we’d all be perfect. But we can’t, so why be unhappy about it? I’ve never wanted different hair or my body any other shape. And I’ve never thought of a person as ugly unless they opened their mouth and their heart was full of venom.

Jessie J: “People say that you’re too skinny, or you’re too fat. You’re never enough”

FFN_vcv_52312308 - Jessie J: "People say that you’re too skinny, or you’re too fat. You’re never enough"

The full story from People:

For Jessie J, working out is a way to get fit and feel strong — something that’s particularly important to her as she manages a heart condition.

The singer, 29, inherited Wolff-Parkinson-White disease — a condition that means she has an extra electrical pathway in her heart that causes shortness of breath and dizziness — from her father, and his father before him.

“It doesn’t go away, sadly. It’s just something that I’ve had to deal with since I was a child, and it pushed me to get stronger. It’s just part of who I am,” Jessie J, a spokesperson for Propel Electrolyte Water, tells PEOPLE.

But after undergoing surgeries as a child, she doesn’t worry too much about burning out during concerts or her workouts — she’s learned how to monitor her body.

“I do have to make sure I stay healthy and look after myself,” Jessie J says. “I kind of love that I have something that pushes me to be healthier.”

“I just wanted to recreate the way people see the word ugly,” she says. “For me it’s like, don’t care, stop judging yourself, get on with it, get sweaty, get fit. Who cares what you look like? Don’t wear makeup; your hair’s going to be a mess. Just do it.”

“People say that you’re too skinny, or you’re too fat. You’re never enough,” she says. “I think it’s so fickle and silly. I’m comfortable in my own skin, so I try to inspire people who aren’t there yet to get there.”
