I think we can all admit that Claudia has an amazing body. The only thing sharper than her physique is her witty, funny personality. It’s surprising that even Claudia feels insecure about her body and gives herself a hard time. In her Bravo Blog, Claudia dishes on her current feelings about her body and what she does to get into shape.
Bravotv.com: How do you stay in shape?
CJ: Well when I AM in shape (which I so am not right now), I like to go on three-mile jogs at least three times a week, as well as hit the track for a couple sprint workouts for the week. But honestly, I have not been putting in much work in the past year, and I am really not feeling my soft body right about now. I grew up running track and in college was an All-American sprinter, so I’ve always been somewhat active. But as life would have it, I have been noticing changes in my body the past few years, and I can’t just get away with eating all the carbs I take in and not being consistent in the gym. And also the older you get, the more important it becomes to do some resistance training as in weights, push-ups, squats, lunges, etc.
Every day I mean to go to the gym, but then my couch calls me. And that thing is so damn comfortable! But seriously, it’s the first two weeks back that are the most difficult. My old trainer Eric Nall used to tell us that it takes doing something for 21 days for it to become a habit. And it’s those first 2 weeks that are the most difficult mentally and physically. I think I slack off sometimes, too, because I know for a fact that my body responds really quickly to working out. So I KNOW if I really wanted to get back, all it would take would be a few weeks to a month and that sometimes is my excuse to put it off. I figure, “Hey I can start tomorrow, and I’ll be fine.” But then my 41-year-old body reminds me that it’s not 23 anymore, and it doesn’t cooperate.
The funny thing is not too long ago I was modeling and on covers of fitness magazines. I’m a long way from that, but sometimes I look at these photos to get myself motivated. I promise you guys, though, I will be snatched and in shape and hopefully my booty will be two inches higher by the reunion…if I can only get off this couch! I will say that gym scene with Kenya made me realize just how far I have fallen off! My booty done dropped two inches at least, my abs are on hiatus, and my arms look like Olive Oil’s! Plus, I just feel weak. Matter of fact, this is making me angry. Let me get off this blog and take my behind downstairs to the gym right now!
It’s nice to know that everyone has a hard time getting their butts off the couch. Do you have a hard time motivating yourself to work out? Thoughts on what Claudia had to say?
