Pink’s miracle diet
TOO! HOW SHE DROPPED 7KG – AND YOU CAN
Pink has unveiled her secret weapon as she works to lose 15kg for her hugely anticipated world tour – and it only costs $5!
The singer has revealed that she’s incorporated resistance bands into her regime, loving that the budget workout tool – which costs just a few dollars from Kmart – can be used anywhere, any time.
But while the mum-of-two has long been known for her muscly and toned physique, she’s been more relaxed about her workout and diet regime since welcoming son Jameson last December.
As a result, she’s worked with celebrity trainer Jeanette Jenkins to make resistance band exercises – which can be done while her baby is sleeping at home – a crucial addition to her routine.
‘Pink might be known for having a six-pack, but these days she’s a lot more chilled out about her body and diet,’ says a close friend. ‘Of course she wants to be fit and in shape, but she’s not beating herself up about it.
‘She’s a mama now, she has a new baby and daughter Willow – she doesn’t want any mum working themselves to the ground just to fit into their pre-baby jeans.
‘That’s why she loves resistance bands – she can do exercises while she’s watching TV or while Jameson is napping. She can use them in the gym or at home, they fit in her handbag – it’s just a really simple and easy workout trick.
‘Pink thinks it’s really revolutionised her whole approach to exercise.’
The 38-year-old has spoken openly about the importance of not pressuring new mums to lose weight too quickly. Taking to Instagram in recent months, Pink posted the hashtags ‘#slowandsteady winstherace’ alongside one photo of her working out, as well as ‘#feelingmyself ’ and ‘#strongismygoal’ on another.
On one gym photo, the star hit out at harsh body standards in another emotional post – calling on women to not be bullied about their bodies.
‘Would you believe I’m 160 pounds [72kg]and 5’3” [160cm]? By “regular standards” that makes me obese,’ she wrote. ‘I know I’m not at my goal or anywhere near it after Baby 2 but dammit I don’t feel obese. The only thing I’m feeling is myself. Stay off that scale ladies!’
While Pink is determined to lose weight at her own pace, revealing she’d love to lose 15kg, she’s already lost 7kg – and she credits her workout mindset.
‘Pink loves that there’s no pressure on her to lose weight,’ says the source. ‘She’s halfway through her goal and is really happy with the progress. She looks great, feels better – she’s never been happier.’ NI
Pink’s hoping these cheap resistance bands will be the secret to achieving her goal weight. BEFORE BACK IN SHAPE!
