Since her 50-pound weight loss, Jordan Sparks achieved her dream of appearing on the cover of Shape magazine. She said she couldn’t help breaking into tears when she got in a bikini for the cover of Shape Magazine!
Well everyone including me wants to know how she did it. The 22 year told Us Weekly that, “There is no secret it’s just eating better and working out! It’s definitely a daily thing” she told the magazine.
For her workouts Sparks engages in high-energy dance classes like Zumba. “My mom’s best friend is a Zumba instructor and I loved it,” she gushed. “I started with walking then went to jogging and then Zumba. I started [working with a trainer] and we did 30 minutes of circuit training so I didn’t feel like I needed to be in the gym for two hours.”
In addition to intense cardio sculpting sessions, Sparks, had to makeover her diet as well. “I stop now when I’m full,” she admitted. “I love food and I love to eat. My thing was, do I really need seconds or do I want it just because it tastes good?”
But leftovers and second helpings have proven to pay off for the season 6 American Idol champ, who admits that she got extremely emotional when shooting her first bikini cover.
“I could only dream having a cover and looking like that,” she said. “I thought, ‘I did it!’ I had to walk back to my dressing room and I had to pull myself together because I was overwhelmed. I cried. I shed a little tear but I’m really happy with how it turned out.”
