At this year's Golden Globe Awards, Sandra Bullock was looking lovely in a purple evening gown and glowing from her win for Best Actress for The Blind Side. When I saw the red carpet pics of Sandra that night I was impressed by how toned her arms and upper body look — her fitness routine must be paying off!
To stay in shape, it's all about variety for Sandra, and though she also tries to work out every day, she doesn't beat herself up if she misses a few weeks. Besides running and biking, the star incorporates Pilates, plyometrics, weights, and kickboxing into her fitness routine — phew! Sandra must know that changing up your workout is a great way to stay motivated and not get bored with a fitness regimen. If you're not familiar with plyometrics, or jump training, I encourage you to give it a try. You can easily add it into a walking routine or when strength training. By including jumping exercises like jump roping or jumping squats into an existing workout, you use new muscle groups and burn more calories. It's also just a lot of fun!

Sandra keeps her diet healthy by making meal plans for the week and giving herself one cheat day to eat whatever she wants. A healthy meal for her might include brown rice, black beans, and steamed veggies. When cheat day rolls around, she doesn't hold back! Viennese pastries, cookie dough, and bacon-covered chocolate are on her list of indulgent snacks.
Congrats Sandra! We're all anxiously awaiting to find out if your name will be on the Oscars list.
