Ashley Roberts: I’ll never be stick-thin

Ashley Roberts will never be “crazy stick thin”.

The former Pussycat Doll is a petite UK size 8-10 and puts this down to staying active and eating healthy. Ashley’s mother was a personal trainer and the singer-and-dancer looks to her as a body inspiration.

“My mom, who was a personal trainer, was a great role model for me growing up,” Ashley told British magazine Closer. “I’ll never be crazy stick-thin because I’ve always been athletic and have muscle tone, which is much sexier. I want to feel confident, strong and healthy - not skinny.”

The trained dancer is now a judge on UK TV show Dancing on Ice.

Ashley stays slim by making sure that she is able to work out daily.

“I make sure that I do some exercise every day, even if it’s just getting out for a walk or going on a hike,” Ashley revealed. “I try to get to a class a couple of times a week - hot power yoga is great for toning and releasing toxins and stress. For cardio workout that burns calories, I love spin classes… You need to challenge yourself to keep getting the results you want.”

It's not all work for Ashley. The 31-year-old stands by her belief of not weighing herself often and also doesn’t count calories. Ashley maintains that it is important not to have too much restriction while dieting.

“It’s important to allow yourself a slice of pizza or a cupcake, as long as you’re eating well the rest of the time,” Ashley added. “My guilty pleasure is Mexican food. I love a fajita, followed by desert and a cocktail.”

    Beyonce’s #Flawless image is embroiled in controversy once again. On Wednesday, a web site called The Beyonce World leaked 224 allegedly raw photos of the musician. The images showed Bey in full makeup for the 2013 L’Oreal ad campaign — but with the kinds of “imperfections” we all have — beauty marks, bumps, creases. In the wake of Cindy Crawford’s unretouched photos, the images have been praised by critics of a beauty industry that sets impossibly high standards, standards that Queen Bey …
