Rashida is gifted with an amazing figure that makes her look tempting wherever she goes. Want to know the secrets of her great body and stunning looks? Here they are:
Rashida is an Early Bird
The talented actress is an early riser. Whenever she is working, she gets up around at 5 in the morning and starts working by 7 am. It’s quite an impressive quality, as most of the Hollywood stars aren’t early risers and they certainly don’t start work so early. Hats off to her!
Rashida Jones Weight Issues
As the diva was born with a silver spoon, she wasn’t always too conscious about her weight. As a kid, she was a chubby and had weight issues. She had to deal with excess weight in her midsection and that’s a bad memory for her. She recalls those times and says that the time was uncomfortable, sad and filled with many food memories.
Rashida’s Preferred Exercises
The hot celebrity has a special fondness for pilates exercises. It helped strengthen her core and blessed her with the lean and toned look. She urges all her fans to try it out, especially the moves known as Series of Five, as they are very effective in toning and strengthening a person’s middle body. She does pilates exercise at least three times a week. Apart from pilates, her workout routine usually includes yoga, spinning and salsa (that helped her in preparing for her role in the funny 2014 flick Cuban Fury).
Rashida’s Best Attribute
When asked about the best feature of her body, she vouches for her legs. She is proud to add that her legs are just like her father’s (muscular). She thinks that she does not need to do any workouts for her legs as they look great even if she is not hitting the gym regularly.
By her own admission, Rashida is not a fitness freak. But she does have episodes when she gets addicted to an exercise and puts in a lot of time in it. She has admitted that she has had episodes like the one when she started running 6 times a week in order to stay healthy.
Consistency is the Key
Like most of us, the popular actress does not like to hit the gym. She often seeks excuses to avoid it but in the end she convinces herself to do it and uses the after exercise feeling as a motivation. She thinks that one should think of the feeling you get when you have done a good workout session and concentrate on that when thinking of excuses to avoid hitting the gym. It will motivate you and you will get a great body as a reward of the consistency.
A Unique Way to Get Motivated
The popular show So You Think You Can Dance is the motivational factor that inspires Rashida to work out and stay fit. In an interview given to Pop Sugar, she has confessed that watching the show puts her in the mood for exercising and she is inspired by the strength and power of the contestants.
Rashida’s Health Regret
The great looking actress has acknowledged that she has a health regret that can’t be corrected now. It’s her inability to aerobicize in the 80s. We think that it would have helped her to have a more elastic body.
Rashida’s Diet Secrets
You would be glad to know that the pretty lady has a fondness for cooking. Whenever she gets time, she likes to cook and prefers eating freshly prepared foods. We must say, it is a good habit that we all should follow. She usually starts her day with coffee as it helps her wake up and get started in the early mornings.
When the actress has some time to spare, she visits the nearest farmers market and prepares fresh vegetables stir fry that is both healthy and tasty. Her dinner usually consists of some self-cooked pasta, accompanied by fresh herbs.
Like all of us, Jones has a weakness too. She loves to indulge in a pizza every once in a while as it helps her to feel good and lifts her mood.
