Teresa has been doing the rounds for promotion of her new memoir and making some interesting revelations along the way! Teresa recently spoke with People Magazine to discuss everything from how she lost weight in prison to the rumors of Joe out and about with other women:
If you thought Teresa looked great when she exited prison – there’s a reason! Teresa actually lost weight behind bars, where most people come out gaining weight thanks to the fatty foods and low nutritional value in prison food. Teresa had a game plan saying:
“In the beginning I tried everything, and then I started staying away from the meat.” Teresa disclosed that she ate a lot of oatmeal and salad, also working out as much as she could.
“In the wintertime, I would go to the gym. In the spring and summertime, I was constantly on the track, either walking or running.”
Also impressive? Teresa apparently won a plank contest (and from someone that hates planks – I found this super impressive!)
“I did the longest plank, and it was 9 minutes and 19 seconds. So I was proud of myself for that.”
Getting on to more serious subjects, Teresa discussed the rumors that Joe cheated (and handled the question quite nicely I may add):
“No woman has ever come up to me and said that my husband was having an affair. We’ve been married 16 years; listen we’re both devoted to each other, and I don’t have a collar around his neck. If we didn’t want to be around each other, we would both go our separate ways.”
On her goals now that she has done her time and is a free woman:
“I read a lot of inspirational books, like whatever you want, you can put it out there. I want to make $40 million this year. I hope that happens – for real. I made a vision board. I want to come out with my own yoga DVD tape, my own yoga line. If you put out what you want, sometimes you get it. Never say ‘I can’t do that’ because then you’re already bringing yourself down.”
It’s still early in 2016 – Teresa has plenty of time to make it her best year yet!
