Actress Jenna Elfman attended NBCUniversal’s Summer Press Day at The Langham Huntington Hotel and Spa on April 8, 2014 in Pasadena, California. Black pant suits are showing up on everyone!
Jenna Elfman looked cute at the “Make Your Move” Los Angeles Premiere. Last year, Jenna talked to Shape about her diet and exercise.
I actually just drink water all morning (with fresh lemon juice if it’s available) until about 9:30 a.m., which I have found works really well for me—it may not be the best for others. Then at 9:30 a.m., I’ll have a big scoop of peanut butter. About an hour later, I continue with eating a snack such as a small serving of oatmeal or some fresh vegetables, then lunch, snacks, and dinner as the day progresses.
For snacking, I’ll eat an apple or some berries; I eat millet or buckwheat rice cakes; I try not to eat dairy, so the yogurt thing isn’t really happening for me very often, but I do eat the occasional coconut yogurt. I like pumpkin seeds, peanuts and almonds, fresh cut vegetables, fresh vegetable juice, etc. I also enjoy turkey jerky! Sometimes a bowl of rice makes a great snack for me too.
Well, with my crazy, unpredictable schedule, “typically” doesn’t really apply! But I’ll often eat a variation on a salad or soup theme. I always try to stay away from heavily refined foods and stick to organic whole grains, fruit, vegetables, etc. Not always easy—at all. But I try.
Dinner is actually the trickiest for me because I’m with my kids. Unfortunately they can be finicky eaters, so their food selection isn’t the same as mine and most of my evening is spent tending to their nightly routine of play, dinner, play, bath, bed! By the time I realize I’m hungry, I usually just have time for some puffed rice or millet cereal with honey and almond milk right before bed! Unless I get lucky and my husband happened to have brought home some sushi!
As for diet, just don’t eat that table bread! Sit on your hands if you have to. Don’t do it! I drink plenty of water—vital. I actually carry a 32-ounce water bottle around with me at all times and try to drink two of those a day. Not easy. But if I have it with me, I can usually do it. And I sip at it, I don’t chug it.
For exercise, I walk, climb stairs, hike, dance, and do some strength training exercises and lift free weights. But really, all this only happens when I can make time for it in my day without falling over from already being tired from working and parenting my two young boys. But here’s a little trick for when I am limited on time: I keep two 10-pound weights in my bathroom, and every day I do a quick set of lifting in the morning or when getting ready for bed. Also, I do lunges while brushing my teeth and then I try to do 10 to 15 pushups before bed. If you’re consistent with this shortcut regimen, it’s amazing the results you can accomplish!
Just get out there and walk. Also, while I’m out and about during my day, if there is a choice between taking the elevator/escalator or the stairs, I always take the stairs!
In 2010, Jenna used Freshology home meal delivery service after giving birth to her son. She said:
“Since having my newborn seven weeks ago, I have been eating their ‘New Mommy’ program. The food is super delicious and the baby weight is steadily coming off!”
