Cuoco says that her former distaste for exercise was overturned for the better when she met yoga. “I used to not enjoy working out and I found something that I love and it is yoga. I absolutely love it,” Cuoco tells Women’s Health. “Sometimes do I want to get up and do it in the morning – no. But when I get out, I feel like a million bucks.”
The actress says she’s tried every form of working out, but still can’t get into that one dreaded outlet of cardio. “I’ve tried spinning. I’ve tried running. I’ve tried yoga. I’ve tried pilates. I realized I don’t like running – I refuse to do it,” she says.
In addition to working out, Cuoco eats well in order to maintain her healthy body. She enjoys peanut butter toast in the morning, eats a sandwich halfway through the day, and closes out the evening with a pescetarian protein.
“I eat a little bit of fish, but no more meat I’m done. So a piece of salmon for dinner and vegetables,” says Cuoco of her dinner. “When I get very hungry at night – which is my biggest problem – I go for some fruit. So just like an apple, an apple and peanut butter or celery or something to curb my appetite.”
Inside the December issue, Cuoco opens up her plastic surgery. “Years ago, I had my nose done. And my boobs – best thing I ever did,” she says. “Recently I had a filler in a line in my neck I’ve had since I was 12. As much as you want to love your inner self…I’m sorry, you also want to look good. I don’t think you should do it for a man or anyone else, but if it makes you feel confident, that’s amazing.”
