She has been the personification of the woman who wants it all. Jessica Alba balances the demands of being a wife, mother of three, actress and the co-founder of a now billion dollar company.
And on Monday, despite all of those demands, the 37-year old was spotted looking amazing following a rigorous workout in West Hollywood. Jessica showed off the results of her hard work in the gym in a pair of colorful leafy-patterned leggings and an abs-revealing sports bra.
She paired her multi-color ensemble with Gucci flip-flops, and she accessorized with some super-stylish sunglasses as she carried her essentials in a small bag. The Dark Angel star also pulled her long golden-brown tresses back into a ponytail, which helped to showcase her nearly makeup free facial features.
Turns out health living and exercise is what helps Jessica keep up with her hectic schedule. In an interview with People, Jessica revealed that the benefits of exercise are ‘more than just physical’, and that it takes away that little edge which in turn makes her feel more happier and productive.
When it comes to losing weight, she says it’s all about food intake. ‘With exercise, I get a little more toned and I definitely feel stronger, but my diet is much more important if I’m trying to slim down,’ she said. ‘In that case, I usually don’t eat gluten, dairy, fried foods or processed foods. I try to stick to a diet that’s low in sugar and carbs, and high in lean protein and vegetables.’
Much of Jessica’s time in recent years has been spent on helping grow her business– The Honest Company. The consumer goods company was founded in 2011 and sells a variety of personal, household and baby products.
Jessica hasn’t given up on her career in Hollywood. She is set to star in the upcoming television drama LA’s finest, which is based on the Bad Boys film series. It co-stars Gabrielle Union, Ernie Hudson Zach Gilford, Duane Martin, Ryan Mcpartin and Zach McGowan.
