Drew Barrymore admits shes not a straight arrow when it comes to diet and fitness. I will never be all one thingeating the perfect food and working out every day. I just will never be that person, she said in a new interview with Health. Between my kids and work, I dont have the time in life.

That doesnt mean she never makes the time, though. The 45-year-old actress says that consistency with eating healthfully and squeezing in some exercise will always make her feel better. Before, it was all workout or none. And that really didnt suit me. I had to prioritize it, but I will tell you, it is, like, third on my list. It probably should be first, but its, like, kids and work are probably rivals.

While shes always struggled to find balance, shes feeling good after making small but doable changes. [The past year] has been, in a lot of ways, a really healthy year for me, ironically, considering everything going on, Barrymore said. I exercise, and I had already gained the weight everyone else talked about gainingI had been doing that every year prior.

In February 2020, Barrymore opened up about losing 20 pounds and her struggles with positive body image. In an Instagram post, the actress said that, like most women, her weight has fluctuated over the years. I go up and I go down. The rollercoaster of my body is a challenging, but beautiful ride, she wrote in the caption. That said, there have been times I have stood in my closet and just cried. Hated getting dressed. Didnt feel good! It takes so much for me to look decent. I have to eat just right and work my a off!

To reach her goals, Barrymore focused on yoga for its physical and mental benefits, full-body workouts to break a sweat, and stretching for better mobility. In another video, she said its all about finding what works for your body, highlighting the importance of making time for yourself throughout the day.

Everything is always changing, but there are also fundamentals. I think 2020 made us rethink our fundamental everything, she said. The only thing we have control over is ourselves, and thats not selfish and indulgent. You only have control over how you take care of people. And I do think thats the meaning of life.
