Cindy Crawford: Fit and Lovely at 42

Fashion icon Cindy Crawford was always known as the athletic model, during the glory days of the big six super models. She always looked toned and healthy. At 42, she's still got it. Fitness has always been part of Crawford's life, and now after two kids she's traded the treadmill for hiking. She explains switching from running on a machine to walking on a trail like this:

I found after I had my first kid I could not come home after my workouts and have a nap, so I had to adapt them to make them softer — so they would energize me, rather than wear me out.

She doesn't limit her workout to nature walks; Cindy is a big fan of the vibrating workout offered by the power plate, explaining that you have to mix it up to keep interested in your workout.

To see Cindy's food philosophy,


Having never been one to starve herself, Cindy believes in indulging with moderation. She follows the advice of another fit beauty, Gabby Reece, and Cindy focuses on being 80 percent good 80 percent of the time. I like those stats. But she really listens to her body and avoids eating lots of carbs because they make her feel queasy. Lately she has been opting for tofu over the meat that she serves her family, which sounds familiar to me, except I force tofu on my loved ones.

One very underrated element of aging is self-acceptance, and when questioned if she has spots on her body, Cindy replied:

Every woman does. If there is something you don’t like about yourself, work at it. If you are unable or unwilling to put in the work, accept it — otherwise you will be miserable.

Amen to that, sister. Amen to that.

She has always looked toned and healthy, but she's everything but a natural beauty. She attmited using Botox, vitamin and collagen injections since the age of 29, and you can definitively see it in her face. I don't know, she looks good now, but if she keeps with the injections I don't know if she will look good when she's 60. I'm not judging on women using these methods, but there are other 42 year old women who look more natural and are better role models.

I think she looks great too. Her face looks thinner than her power model days.

I'm with MangoTango82. I completely agree. I eat moderate servings of complex carbs, and it really contributes to my health and fitness. Like Cindy, I've aged very well, too. I get mistaken (by women) for a high school and college student. That's half my age! Complex carbs have not hurt me.

I am so sick of celebrities with their no carbs diets. Healthy complex carbs are what help you stay slim and promote a healthy heart and digestive tract. I don't know why people insist that ANY carbs will make them fat!

Now she's someone who doesn't look her age at all. In fact, I wish I looked at good as she does now and I'm 15 years younger.
