J Lo was on Dr. Oz the other day.  Due to a busy life, I don’t watch the show regularly, but I do record it now and then if the topic(s) or celebrity guests intrigue me.  She had some great advice on HEALTH, LIFE & LOVE!

Dr. Oz gave her the whole ‘Q & A’ session first…

Q: You’re in your 40s now ~ how do you handle health issues [lack of energy, aches, pains, weight gain] that arise?

A: Tries to handle aging with grace & by staying healthy [mind, body, spirit]

Q:  You’re known for your ‘booty’… how did you get such a comfortable body image?  Have you ever had body image issues?

A:  She likes being curvy and not ‘skinny’ ~ its her idea of beautiful!  Her mom was curvy and her dad loved it!  “It was a beautiful thing to be curvy.”  She had some ‘moments’ after she had babies and decided to do a triathlon, which helped her get back into shape.

Q:  What advice do you have for women?

A:  Make your own happiness and wholeness a priority [exercising, eating right, positive affirmations], so you can then share that happiness with others in your life.


Jennifer’s tips on getting into shape, getting healthy & having a positive well-being

  • Drinks LOTS of water throughout the day [Dr Oz says to drink it until your urine is clear]
  • No smoking, no drinking, limited sun exposure
  • Sleep – usually gets between 6-8 hours, tries for 7-9 hours, loves 11 when she can get it
  • Does daily meditation and affirmations ~ thinks positive thoughts, loves herself
  • Starts the day out with a healthy breakfast ~ Berry Berry smoothie/shake made with Body Lab protein powder, greek yogurt, fruit & dallop of honey- low calorie, high protein

I enjoyed the show [clearly, I wrote a blog post!] and can’t wait to try her smoothie!

Off to bed to get my 7+ hours… shouldn’t you?!
