Being one of the top supermodels in the world with a yearly paycheck of about $8 million means some sacrifices have to be made in terms of diet and working out. Being all of the above while also pregnant clearly implies changes are about to be made, as Adriana Lima also got to find out. The first of the type was about her workout routine, as How Celebrities Lose Weight
Lima was always a fan of boxing and chocolate. The latter made her feel good, albeit somewhat guilty for being able to do what few other models could or were allowed to, while boxing was specifically meant to combat the nasty effects of chocolate. As per her own words, boxing also prevented her from becoming bored with her routine, as she learned something new every single day, while also keeping in top shape.
“Boxing! It’s my favorite thing to do because it’s always exciting. It’s the best type of cardio that you can do. And you build up muscles without being too big, just lean muscles.” Lima said in one of her older interviews. Now that she’s pregnant, she clearly can’t continue boxing, because it’s too risky a workout, as well as too challenging. In her search for the best routine, Adriana turned her attention to an exercise that she had often shunned and ridiculed in the past: yoga.
“I’m doing yoga now. I didn’t used [sic.] to take it seriously, but now I realize it’s [a] really good way to get some exercise – and it’s fun.” Lima added in a recent interview, as quoted by HCLW. What with finding yoga, the model has also learned a new thing about herself, namely that she no longer has a sweet tooth now, which probably helps her a lot in terms of keeping her weight under control. “It’s funny because I used to love chocolate – I was such a chocolate lover until I got pregnant!” the model revealed on the same occasion.
