Dust off the Daisy Dukes!
Four months after Jessica Simpson welcomed daughter, Maxwell (with fiance Eric Johnson, 33), the star says: "I'm 10 pounds away from my prebaby size!" She shares the secrets of her success on Weight Watchers with Us Weekly.
7 a.m. Simpson, 32, wakes to feed Maxwell, then eats breakfast: half a Flatout flatbread sandwich with egg whites, peppers and fat-free cheddar (6 PointsPlus).
8 a.m. Simpson straps on her pedometer and hits the streets with Johnson and Maxwell. "I'm trying to do at least 14,000 steps a day," she says. Afterward: a snack of berries, bananas, melon or grapefruit (0 PointsPlus).
11 a.m. Four days a week, Simpson reports to trainer Harley Pasternak for a 45-minute session. After a cardio warm-up, it's circuit time: seven sets (up to 30 reps each) of dumbbell triceps extensions, hamstring curls and crunches with a medicine ball throw. "Her waist is going in, and her thighs are growing smaller," says Pasternak.
6:30 p.m. Bathtime and bed for Maxwell, then dinner for Mom! It's often fish (4 ounces of halibut or tilapia) with roasted eggplant, broccoli or asparagus (6 PointsPlus). And for dessert? Skinny Cow chocolate truffle bars (3 PointsPlus).
