Amy Lou Adams (born August 20, 1974) is an American actress.
I try to walk or run a mile a day, if I can.
In Vogue Magazine she talks about how her past training as a ballet dancer has shaped her training now:
You trained as a ballet dancer growing up. How has that shaped your approach to exercise, posture?
I wish I still had my dancer’s posture—I have to remind myself! I have actually been strength training, using light weights. I work out once a week just to maintain my muscle mass; that’s important as the years go by, as a woman. But I really like running. I try to walk or run a mile a day, if I can.
Shape Magazine tells us all about it and even shares some which I will utilize in the full program later.
“Some mom friends said it’s a good way to lose the baby weight,” Adams told Marie Claire. “And I’ll do anything to get off that treadmill!”
Amy said: “Technically I’m a petite person, but I’ve always been strong. And I’ve never been into deprivation.”
Amy also credits her mother to giving her her strong physique as her mom still goes skiing, rock climbing, and biking even in her 60s, which inspires the actress tremendously. Her diet mostly consists of one boiled egg with a wholegrain toast with margarine and marmalade for breakfast; bread roll, a tin of two fruits, and a bowl of vegetable soup for lunch; and vegetable tacos filled with cheese along with beef with fresh fruit salad for dinner. She usually has tea, biscuits and yogurt for snacks instead of eating processed and junk foods.
