97.9 The Beat Featured Video

While most of us are still acting on our New Year’s resolutions to hit the gym harder, Jennifer Lopez is trying to take a step back from her stringent workout routine. The American Idol judge is on the cover of Glamour U.K.‘s March issue, and talks about the difficulty of letting go of the “go hard or go home” mentality when it comes to fitness.

“I’ve got an athletic body, I’ve worked out my whole life and I’ve been incredibly disciplined when I needed to be,” she told the magazine. “Now I’m just a little bit more relaxed in that area. I feel like this is who I am. But it’s also hard to shed that old skin.”

She goes on to say that she often feels torn between wanting to be “in the best shape ever” and relaxing “on a beach chair”. Decisions, decisions.

The 44-year-old mother also discusses her relationship with former backup dancer, Casper Smart, and how she craves a little turbulence in her love life. To find out more, check out the full interview when the issue hits newsstands on Feb. 3.
