Ever wonder how Black Eyed Peas frontwoman, Fergie stays so energized and happy?
She tells all her must-know secrets to SELF magazine.
Fergie’s main focus in life is staying happy. How? She states:
I needed to take a break from performing, and from the Peas, to be happy. I craved female time, and time with my husband to feed my soul. My life now is about being balanced. I’m passionate about work and working out, seeing friends and family, and letting my hair down once in a while.
I’m very ambitious, but I also love myself,which means I try to take care of myself.
The other members of the Black Eyed Peas aren’t the only guys she is showing up. The fergalicious pop star says working out with her hubby Josh Duhamel keeps her going:
Working out with Josh inspires me, but he is competitive. And loud! So are the Peas. Men scream and go crazy in the gym. I’m a silent workout partner, but when my adrenaline gets up, I talk trash. I’ll wait, and when Josh does something embarrassing, I’ll throw a jab! I used to yell and curse in the gym, but now I’m looking for a more healthy, positive feeling.
Wise words from this down-to-earth diva:
I’ve learned to be more accepting of myself. I’m 37, not 18, and I’ve got the lines to prove it. I try to remind myself that a girl can have it all, just not all at once.
She may be state she is 37, not 18 but her body has other plans. This 37 year-old had a body better than some 18 year-olds I know. What is she consuming to maintain her figure?
She hits the juice, meaning she uses a juicer that is.
Josh turned me on to juicing, and now I do it when I wake up and between meals. The energy it gives me is amazing, I hardly need caffeine anymore. We blend kale, spinach, broccoli and celery with a banana, an apple and a pear. We have two Vitamixes going at once! But I’m only really strict about what I eat when I know I have to be in a bathing suit. I want to be able to run around without worrying about sucking in my stomach!
While Fergie and Josh are not getting any younger are there babies in the future for this happy couple? Fergie comments:
I’m excited to have a child with Josh. He’ll be an amazing dad.
YAY! I’m guessing it is just a matter of time before these two peas in a pod pop out a little one.
But until then Fergie is taking time to enjoy life with her hubby and taking it all in. She stays down to earth in a little paradise of her own called, Fergieland:
I call the fifth floor of my house Fergieland. It’s where I go to refresh myself and be inspired. It’s a total boudoir, decorated in black, white and red. The rest of our home is very earthy.
She never forgets how blessed her life is and never takes anything for granted either.
On Saturday nights, we like going to mass, then dinner. It feeds our spiritual side, and it’s great to hear Josh sing in church, he’s a great singer. Then we go out and have a really nice wine, like all good Catholics.
