Angie Harmon is trying to cherish getting older.
“I think the beauty of being in my fifties is that I definitely have those days where I don't feel like getting out of bed,” the 51-year-old told People in an interview. “I'm exhausted. I just want to lay there and read a magazine about fashion or decorating and that's it.”
“I'll get up and make my daughter’s lunch and get her to school and do the whole thing and blah, blah, blah,” she added. “But I feel like I'm coming back home and it's one or two things, either laying down or working out. Whichever way the scale tips that day, that's where I go and I don't feel bad about it.”
The actress is now embracing working out in a different way.
“I started hot yoga… and I mean you literally sweat out of your eyeballs and it is awesome,” the brunette beauty shared. “Hot yoga. I'm telling you, you get in there and you just sweat. I used to be a runner. I used to do all that stuff and I do still, but it just doesn't do what it used to do to my body.”
“It's just a StairMaster and hot yoga and three to five pound weights if I'm feeling really good that day,” Harmon continued.
Harmon noted how her routine is different than in previous years.
“I've just become this hot yoga sort of walking woman. I was like, what, how did I get here? But on the other hand, it works, so okay, I'll do it. At this point, it's like they told me to drink my own urine and I'm like, alright, well is it iced? Is it room temp? How are we doing this here? Let me know,” she quipped.
Additionally, she touched upon how her body has been changing.
“The thing that I hate the most is when you're going through menopause, your body just isn't yours anymore,” she explained.
“The workouts that you used to do, they don't work anymore. And I love salt so much, and I swear to God, if I even smell it, I wake up the next morning and my eyes are almost swollen, closed. My face is four times its size,” she shared. “I mean, I have to think about all of these things now that I didn't used to have to think about.”
