Lucy is pushed to exercise for its mental health benefits. “I think the more things you try and the more active you become, the more confident and comfortable you become with yourself,” she explained to People on his motivation to sweat. “I’m a lot happier, my mood is better when I train regularly. I’m just one of those weirdos who likes to train. I really enjoy it.”
Lucy maintains variety with exercise, doing one-on-one sessions with a trainer, and also taking classes. “[My trainer’s] the one that forces me to try pull-ups, so every other day we’ll try to do more,” she told People. “But I also like group fitness. I think it’s a way to see your friends and sweat it out while having a good time. I do things like Soul Cycle and Training Mate. I love hiking.”
“I mostly follow a pescatarian diet,” Lucy explained to People about how she eats. “I don’t even like to say diet, just a pescatarian lifestyle. I don’t do dairy and try to cut down on processed foods. I generally like to prep all my foods so I know what I’m getting.”
Lucy eats healthy most of the time, but at the restaurant, she allows herself to cheat. “I love going out to eat. I’m not going to say no to fries or pasta if there’s any. I just try to eat in moderation,” she told People.
“I think about breakfast all the time,” Lucy revealed to Harper’s Bazaar. “I love all meals, but I think breakfast is definitely my favorite. But my breakfast can vary from a peanut butter, perfect food bar, to chocolate chip pancakes, with bacon and eggs. It all depends on the day.”
“I do a lot of strength training because I like to feel strong,” she revealed to Shape. I’m 5ft 2in, but I like feeling like a badass and knowing I could kick someone’s ass. So I do pull-ups and squats with the big boy weights. I even flipped one of those big tires once. And I just discovered Pilates. My butt has never been higher and my abs have never been stronger. Our bodies are so amazing and resilient, and we don’t give them enough credit. I spent much of my teens and early twenties disliking my body and not doing it any good. I’m trying to make up for it because we only have one body. We must take care of our temple.”
Lucy has an interesting approach to food. “I call it intuitive eating,” she told Shape about the way she eats. “If I want chicken, I’ll have chicken. If my body tells me, “Don’t grab the donut,” I don’t grab the donut. If my body tells me: “You deserve a donut”. “, then I will. But I will never give up coffee. I will never give up my lattes or my bread. There was a phase in my life when I didn’t eat bread. What the hell was I thinking ?”
