In Health Magazine’s October issue, Sarah Michell Gellar opens up about staying healthy while being a mom.
‘Before I got pregnant I was in really, really good shape,’ she recalls. ‘I think when I was doing Buffy I was a little bit thin, actually, because even though I was working out constantly, it was just the time and the age.
‘But I was happy being pregnant, too. I’m not as critical as I used to be about my body.’
Gellar says she keeps in shape through working out on the treadmill and Pilates, which she says helps with her scoliosis, a form of spine curvature.
She also recalls how she went into labour while in a Pilates gym.
‘It was funny, too, because I was getting cranky, and I said to my trainer, “I’m just cranky today.” She was like, “Maybe it’s because you’re going to give birth!” And I was like, “Nah, not yet.” It turned out I was in labour, I didn’t realise.’
Gellar is already introducing her two-year-old daughter Charlotte to a healthy diet.
‘Well, we’ve already taught her to love healthy food,’ Gellar reveals.
‘I think it’s important at a young age to enjoy different tastes. And we make this green juice for her. It’s basically everything but the kitchen sink.
‘We go to the farmers’ market and buy everything and just put it in the juicer: kale, Swiss chard, carrots, celery. You name it. And now we’ve all started drinking it, and we’ve all been healthier.
