The Right Way

During the recovery days, she does weights or Pilates as they help in toning her physique. Her preferred workout is boxing. She is up at 6 every morning to train. (Wow, that’s what we call dedication!!)
Preferred Workout Outfit
When working out, the diva likes to wear black long tights, a black cap, a black crop and a good singlet.
If she has a workout in early mornings, she doesn’t have anything as a pre-workout snack. But if she is having the workout in the afternoons, she has a smoothie or a banana as a snack.
On the rest days, she does nothing at all. Her time is usually spent in watching TV or spending time with friends and family. (Isn’t that what we all do?)
The general diet rule she follows is to have only wholesome organic food from every Monday to Friday. Her meals usually include chicken, fish, and fresh vegetables. She has only nuts for snacks.
