Golden actress Heather Locklear is on the cover of the new Shape magazine. It is the fourth time in her career she has had the honor. Heather is 45 and in the best shape of her life according to her.
“I look at these covers (1984, 1988, and 1990) now and think, Wow, nice body.â€? â€œI may be â€œof a certain ageâ€¦I feel more confident about myself now than I did 20 years ago.Â And I can honestly say I look better today.â€?
“There are times when I feel lazy and just want to staying bed all dayâ€¦but I know that working out is the best way to get those endorphins going, which will make me feel better, which will make me feel better emotionally and physically.â€?
â€œTo help me stay positive at 7 a.m. while Iâ€™m putting on my gym clothes, I say things like, â€˜Oh lunges! I love lunges! Letâ€™s do another set!â€™â€?
“Avaâ€™s a great eater. (Heatherâ€™s daughter) She only eat things like fruits and vegetable and sushi â€“ no junk foodâ€¦Itâ€™s ironic because I want to set a good example for her with my eating habits, and sheâ€™s the one whoâ€™s helping me!”
“Itâ€™s my girlfriends who lift me up when I need it the most.â€?
“Iâ€™ve learned itâ€™s really important to make time for me.â€?
“Neither of us remembers why she said it, but the message was to enjoy life and have fun.Â And boy, did I have fun!Â My priorities have changed as Iâ€™ve gotten older.Â I still want to have fun, but now that philosophy translates to good health, good friends, good food, and good roles.â€?
“This is my second chapter.Â Itâ€™s my chance to focus on Ava, on myself and on what I want to do.Â The thing Iâ€™ve learned in my 40s is that when you look out your window, you have to look past the windowsills.Â There is life beyond my little home.”
