SHAPE Magazine‘s October 2013 cover is everything we needed after a long summer of excuses as to why we couldn’t work out. A fabulously fit Kelly Rowland graces the latest issue and she dropped some gems in the interview!
“I work out five or six times a week. I feel better, look better, sleep better,” she says. “As I’m getting older, the Rowland family trait of having bigger bottoms is taking its toll on my hips and butt. The other day, [my trainer] had me doing squats that were so hard I wanted to kill her.”
“But my behind is getting higher and tighter,” she adds. “Exercise really does change your body.”
And what about those cravings? How does she handle THE CRAVINGS?
“When I want a steak, I grill some portobello mushrooms and put a little goat cheese on them,” she tells the mag. “And I’ve learned to satisfy my sweet tooth by replacing Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups with half a tablespoon of almond butter on half a banana.”
Hmm.. ok Kel. We’ll work on substituting all of our favorite, calorie-laden treats with fruit and veggie concoctions. Thanks for the inspiration!
The issue hits newsstands and iPads today!
