Emily Simpson has been making major moves when it comes to her fitness in 2020. The Real Housewives of Orange County beauty has been committed to her health after a turbulent 2019 that included a painful hip replacement surgery. From grueling early morning workouts to Rocky-inspired fitness sessions, she has put in the work to regain her strength. But now, amid the COVID-19 outbreak, Emily (like literally all of us) is sharing her completely relatable struggles with self-motivation. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on Bravo Thursday, July 11 at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

"Although necessary," she began in the caption of her Instagram post on March 19, "this self-isolation, social-distancing and spending ALL day with my kids and husband has put a damper on my spirits, and on my motivation to work out."

Emily, we are right there with you. Bravolebs have been sharing how they are tackling these trying times on social media. And while some are doing their best to celebrate their birthdays, reunite with exes, and brush up on their TikTok skills, Emily is doing her best to keep up with her fitness goals via the internet.

Emily's hoping to snap out of her "quarantine funk" with an at-home workout with her trainer via Instagram Live and she's looking for fans to join in. Naturally, Emily turned to her beloved Legally Blonde for the perfect quote to get her motivation going.

“Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people don’t shoot their husbands. They just don’t,” she wrote. Well, we're sure Shane hope it works.
