Gwyneth Paltrow: “I Drop The Kids At School, Work Out”

gwyneth-paltrow-womens-health

Academy Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow covers the April issue of Women’s Health and opens up about family life with her two kids – daughter Apple, 12, and son Moses, 10 – and her healthy lifestyle.

On working out: “I like feeling good, and I know I feel my best when I exercise. But it depends on the day—I definitely don’t always feel like doing it. I’ve made it a habit, just like brushing your teeth. That’s how you have to look at it. I’ve been a Tracy Anderson fanatic for over a decade, I’m an investor in her company, so yeah, I go every morning. I drop the kids at school, work out, go to work. I’ve been supplementing it a bit with lifting heavier weights lately, to deal with some lower-back-pain issues. You can’t bottle a great workout.”

On creating her own supplement packs: “There are so many options for vitamins out there. Which ones work? How much should you take? Are they going to interact with each other? It’s almost impossible to navigate. We wanted to take the work out of it for [women]. I think women in modern society don’t feel very well. The number one thing women say is “I’m exhausted and I don’t know why!” I want to get to the bottom of why that is. The supplements were born out of that impulse: I want to feel well, I want my friends to feel well, I want my readers to feel well. I’ve always experimented with supplements. And I believe the combination of toxic load, the modern environment, and nutritional deficiency makes our bodies more vulnerable to breaking down.”

On striking a balance between diet and supplements: “For me, it’s a combination of what I’m eating and what I’m taking. I have a pretty healthy diet, so when I’m eating processed foods and not watching my alcohol intake, I feel it. But at the same time, you want deliciousness, you want a fun life—pleasure! You’re going to have a baguette-and-cheese-and-red-wine frenzy sometimes—but you want it to be a choice you’re awake to: “I know this might not make me feel great, but today I’m choosing it anyway.”

On some of her questionable ideas, like vagina steaming: “When I find something I think works, I like to share it with people… When you’re at the forefront of something that’s new, people can get really reactive: “This is crazy! Why are you doing this?” Then, five years later, everyone’s fine with it. So I have a bit of pattern recognition in hand at this point—which is helpful. Also, when someone doesn’t like something you do, or doesn’t share your interest in something, that doesn’t have anything to do with you. One of the best things someone ever said to me was that the only time criticism hurts is if you have a judgment about yourself about that very thing. If someone’s like, “You dick, you have red hair!” and you’ve got brown hair, it doesn’t bother you. It’s a blessing to be liberated from the chains of other people’s perceptions of you. It’s part of wellness, working at that. I’ve gotten to a point where I like myself. I do my best as a person. I also have nothing to hide.”

Jillian Michaels: “Expectation Is The Root Of Misery”

jillian-michaels-health-cover

Celebrity trainer Jillian Michaels covers the November issue of Health and opens up about her newest book, Yeah Baby!: The Modern Mama’s Guide to Mastering Pregnancy, Having a Healthy Baby, and Bouncing Back Better Than Ever, and family life with fiancée Heidi Rhoades and their two children: daughter Lukensia, 6, and son Phoenix, 4.

On her best advice for bouncing back after pregnancy—or another hiatus, like an injury or the holidays: “The key is not to take a hiatus. But a hiatus also needs to be redefined. A lot of people look at it as letting it all go. No. It’s asking, “What is it that you can control?” We can always control what we consume, so that’s a massive piece of the pie. And the other key is to be proactive. My rotator cuff is blown out? OK, I’m gonna be doing step-ups and squats. It’s a mentality we have—especially in America—of all or nothing, black or white. We’re like, “If I can’t do something 100 percent, I’m out.”

On conquering self doubts: “Small steps. Any long-term goal breaks down monthly, then weekly, then daily, then immediately. So educate yourself about the first small step, take the step and then see where you’re at. Gradually, you’ll define yourself by how you’ve achieved it. Conversely, I’ve taken some of the worst hits, where I feel like I’m in the ring with Muhammad Ali. And I’ve taken a lot of punches, but I’m still standing. Even if you face a setback, you’ll see that if you can tolerate this, you can tolerate more of it. It’s like what I was talking to my daughter about when she was afraid of her first day of school.”

On her advice to her daughter: “I was like, “Let’s look back on your life.” She’s Haitian, so I said, “You lived through one of the most intense natural disasters on the planet. And on top of that, you had to wait two years for Mommy and I to find you. You are the strongest kid. You’ve been through all this, and you think you can’t handle your first day of school in Malibu?” I also told her, “I get it—you’re scared. It’s gonna be uncomfortable, honey, but I promise you: There will be good in with the bad, and that’s what you’re gonna focus on. There’s probably gonna be one kid you don’t like or who won’t like you, but a lot of people are awesome, and I bet you’ll make a bunch of friends.” She went to school and came home happy, happy, happy, and it was awesome.”

On managing her expectations: “Expectation is the root of misery! So I walk into everything expecting the worst and prepare to be surprised. Some people are like, “Can’t you be positive?” But I’ve learned to go in cautiously and carefully, and if it turns out great? Wonderful! The goal is to go in open with zero expectations. It is about trying to wipe the slate and be present.”
