The Skinny on Jennifer Hudson: Her success secret!

FitnessBytes with Wes Ferguson

I’m not trying to scam Jennifer Hudson out of book sales or anything, but you don’t need to read I Got This: How I Changed My Ways and Lost What Weighed Me Down to discover the secret to her success. I’m sure it’s still a good book, or whatever. JHud herself revealed the moral of the story, saying: “Take your time. Pace yourself. Make up your mind to do what you want to do, and go for it. Don’t pressure yourself, and don’t go by other people’s standards.”

Done and done, girlfriend!

Another mental motto: “This is my body. I have the power to do whatever I want with it.”

One of her favorite ways to workout? A nice long run. If she doesn’t have the time/space, she says she just keeps herself moving — as much as possible. “Anything helps. Anything is better than nothing.”
