Eva Longoria is back on the workout wagon!
Five-plus months after giving birth to her son, Santiago, on June 19, the actress is hitting the gym again. And she’s very pleased she decided to lose weight on her own time. “I really gave my body time to adjust to postpartum and post-pregnancy,” the star told Us Weekly exclusively ahead of her Teen Vogue Summit speech on Saturday, December 1. “You know, it had a baby! It created a human life, so I really wasn’t too hard about getting back into shape.”
But now that the new mom, 43, and her husband, José Bastón, have the baby thing down pat, the Desperate Housewives alum is getting back on a hard-core health kick. “Now I’m working out a lot more and watching what I eat. I’m barely starting to get back into it.”
And while Longoria finds yoga very therapeutic — “I still love yoga,” she says — she’s also going for something a little tougher to lose weight and tone up. “My workouts now are more weight training,” she tells Us. “Very serious weight training.”
