In a recent interview with ESPN, the actress revealed she gained 30 pounds because she was more worried about sweating out her perm while working out than hitting the gym and staying fit:
On Putting Her Hair Before Her Body
“I would have pancakes. I’d take my kids to school. I’d have lunch. I’d have pasta and mashed potatoes with butter for dinner and a glass of wine and I’m not doing anything. Maybe 20 minutes on the treadmill.
“But my hair was tight.”
On Working Out With the Gym wrap
“[With the head wrap] I went through 45 minutes of intense boot camp with multiple circuit training, indoors and outdoors,” said Parker, who went through 17 prototypes before settling on the final version. “I washed it. I dried it. I threw it on the floor. I really tried to find a way to make it perfect.”
After gaining thirty pounds by eating lots of highly processed carbohydrates and only performing twenty minutes a day of aerobic exercise, Parker began a fitness journey that led her all the way to the top of a fitness competition.
The wrap cost between $24.95 and $29.95.
