In the May 2013 issue of WOMEN'S RUNNING, Sparkle actress and singer Jordin Sparks opens up about what she does to maintain her fabulous curves. And, she shares her weight loss journey and gives useful fitness, eating and confidence tips that helped her get ready for bathing suit season.
She also talked about her workout playlists, her dream of running with Fergie and her relationship with singer-songwriter boyfriend, Jason Derulo. Here are the highlights:
On Biggest Inspirations:
“Watching my dad was one of my biggest inspirations.” “There are days I don’t want to get up, let alone run, and Jason’s a great motivator.”
On her music of choice while running?
“Kanye West, Jay Z…and I listen to Jason a lot. I can’t help that—it’s just nice to hear his voice. I’ve also been listening to some new up-tempo stuff of my own that I’m excited for people to hear.”
On her dream Running Buddy?
On her snacks of choice?
“Baby Carrots, Instant Maple-Brown Sugar Oatmeal, Almonds, Apples, Bananas, Clementines, and La Croix Sparkling Water”
On her workout routine?
“I put my iPod on shuffle and let the song’s pace determine my interval. If it’s a slow song, I turn the incline way up and jog to the beat. If a faster song comes on, I turn the incline down and watch the miles fly by.”
Check out some behind the scenes photos from Jordin's shoot:
At the photo shoot, she sang along to “Thrift Shop”, Nelly’s “Must Be the Money” and her favorite song of the moment One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful”. A One Direction song would be her fave song...right?
Towards the end of the shoot, Jordin's sexy boyfriend Jason Derulo dropped in to surprise her. How cute are these two!
