“Access Hollywood” and “NBC Nightly News” reporter Maria Menounos graces a second health and fitness magazine cover this month. First it was the May/June issue of Women’s Running magazine; now, it’s the June issue of Self.
Menounos, who has also acted for TV and film, is healthy and fit, and in Self she tells readers about a couple of healthy living rules that she lives by. First, she doesn’t eat unless she’s hungry. And second, she believes in the power of positive thinking, telling herself every morning, “Today is going to be a good day.”
Menounos travels a lot for her job as an “NBC Nightly News” reporter, and back on the campaign trail in 2008 she developed her own hotel room workout routine. Her trainer approves, and she shares her moves with us in this issue of Self.
Also in this issue:
- “12 Ways to Think Slim” is filled with a dozen new ways to look at your diet. Just because I ran 3 miles doesn’t mean I deserve a cupcake. Number 1 on the list–”Food is not a trophy”–is a great way to begin this lesson.
- It’s too hot to cook, so why not whip up one of the “No-Cook Summer Soups” in the Smart Eating department? Colorful photos make each one more appealing than the next.
- Are you a writer who has started five novels but still lack the final chapter on each? Do you buy new shelves to hang in the bathroom, but let them collect dust on the floor instead? “Consider It Done!” is a fun little quiz that will help you finish up all that unfinished business.
