If you've been keeping up with Shannon Beador on social media, you know that she's been on a bit of a health and fitness kick lately. The Real Housewives of Orange County mom started working out with Dr. Tim Ramirez of Pacifica Wellness last month, and she already looks amazing.
Shannon had some pretty straightforward motivation to hit the gym. "I gained weight, so I don't like that," she told The Daily Dish of what pushed her to get more active earlier this summer (clip above). "But I call it my happy fat because I was having a good time, and my husband and I were going out and eating, so I gained the weight."
We know from watching RHOC that the gym isn't exactly Shannon's natural habitat, so she needed to find inspiration elsewhere. "I'm not very motivated on the exercise planes, so I thought if I documented it on social media, it would motivate me more to actually follow through," she said. "And it's working. I've exercised every day that I'm [visiting New York]."
But don't expect her to be winning fitness competitions like her castmate Tamra Judge anytime soon. "I'm not looking for the Tamra Judge body," Shannon clarified. "I'm just looking to be toned and to lose a little bit of weight. I just want to be healthy. So it's just moving around, 30 minutes, that's it, we're done."
However, it must be convenient for Shannon to have such a health-conscious friend from whom she can seek advice. "She's trying to help me eat cleaner, which, you know, I do eat clean. We're a pretty healthy house. But I just kind of veered off-course for a little bit, but that's OK," Shannon said of the advice Tamra has given her during her own quest to transform her body.
So does that mean Shannon will give another one of Tamra's CUT Fitness classes a try? "Maybe so. Maybe so," Shannon said. "She'll knock me on my ass, but maybe so."
Remind yourself how well that went the first time, below.
