Lea Michele’s motivation for working out is she can "eat whatever" she wants afterwards.
The 30-year-old actress has a hectic schedule, but always manages to make time for a quick gym session and she stays motivated to keep fit by reminding herself she can splurge on the extra calories she’s burned off during her exercise.
Speaking to People magazine, she said: "Knowing that I can eat whatever I want afterward always makes me feel good!
"I need a goal at the end of anything that I do. At the end, there’s this great place that I’m going to get the most delicious salad or sushi!"
In addition to keeping her next meal within reaching distance, the ‘Scream Queens’ actress also uses her friends as motivation to stay healthy, as she hates "bailing" on them so will always join them in the gym.
She added: "I work out with friends often and I hate bailing on my friends. If I make a plan, I don’t like to cancel it, so I always work out with a buddy and it helps me to be accountable. You just feel so good after you work out."
And whilst the ‘Glee’ actress is keen to keep fit, she’s happy with the way she looks and doesn’t like seeing photographs of herself that have been digitally altered.
She said previously: "When people change my nose its very clear to me. I’m like, ‘That’s not my nose!’ But they don’t do it that often with me – I mean, I’ve seen situations with other celebrities where it’s aggressive how much things get retouched or photoshopped. What I think fans love to see about me is what I really look like and so magazines sometimes give people what they want with me. They’re like, ‘Ehh we’ll just leave her as she is.’"
