Nicole Sherzinger and her ex Formula One racer Lewis Hamilton met recently at a shopping mall parking lot in Los Angeles. Lewis stared at the ground and kept his hands in his pockets for much of the brief meeting while Nicole was pictured with a worrisome countenance, it’s safe to say this was not a reconciliation meeting.
But despite her rocky love life, Nicole has found happiness through her healthy and balanced lifestyle. She tells Shape magazine in their December issue,
“My new motto is: Stay active, eat everything in moderation, and stop being so tough on myself.”
“I eat — a lot!” she added. “Even with my crazy schedule, I never skip meals. I’ll often have soft-boiled eggs, smoked salmon, and whole-wheat toast for breakfast; cold cuts, veggies, and fruit for lunch; and usually chicken or fish with rice and more vegetables for dinner.”
Nicole also elaborated on how long her journey has been to finding balance, “It’s taken a long time to get here,” she tells Shape. “I started jogging and counting calories when I was just 14. I’ve been on every diet you can imagine.”
“By the time I was in the Pussycat Dolls, I was on the scale all the time,” she says. “It became my enemy because I noticed that when I exercised really hard, I’d gain weight. Now that I’m in my 30s, I’ve stepped off the scale — I just go by how my clothes fit.”
She adds, “I’m more accepting of my body and have learned to really embrace it. These days it’s all about finding balance.”
Kudos to you Nicole!
