Showing off her fabulous figure, Molly Sims adorns the cover of the January 2012 issue of Shape.
The 38-year-old swapped in and out of an array of skimpy outfits for the Nino Munoz shot spread while declaring of her toned physique, "This does not come naturally. I have to work out 60 to 90 minutes at least five days a week and stick to a high-fiber, low-calorie eating plan."
Inside the issue, Molly offers up her Top 10 Tips for Feeling Fit, Fabulous and Focused, which are listed below. For more, be sure to visit Shape!
1. Bribe Yourself
“I’m going to get up every morning at 6:30 to work out. Then, when I’ve kept with it all week, I give myself something I really want, like a new handbag or a piece of jewelry I’m coveting.”
2. Banish the Bread
“I don’t care if I’m being rude to the rest of the table,” she says of her routine of quickly ordering a salad. “I just do it. Then I’m not tempted to reach for that bread.”
3. Make Healthy Swaps
4. Drop 5 Fast— No Fad Diet Required
5. Brush Up
“Don’t hate me for suggesting this, because it can hurt a bit at first,” she says of dry skin brushing, adding, “but before I get in the shower, I use a loofah or brush to exfoliate. There’s nothing better for getting your circulation going and helping with cellulite.”
6. Pump Up with Your Partner
"My mom was on my daddy to exercise all the time. She was like, ‘Listen buddy, if I’m doing this, you’re doing it too.’ and I agree!”
7. Go Back to the Basics
8. Be Classically Chic
9. Stay in Tune
“Ask yourself, how do you feel after you eat that? If you’re going to the bathroom every time you have pasta, you might have an intolerance for wheat—which could explain, for instance, why you’re gaining weight.”
10. Sweat it Out
“Whether it’s time on the treadmill or an upper- body routine,” says Molly while advising at least a 15 minute workout. “You just have to get that heart rate up and keep it there.”
