When Rollins was asked about her approach to prenatal fitness, we loved her answer!
"I exercise four or five days a week, because my doctor told me to keep doing what I've always done until my body tells me I can't anymore. I often take spin classes. Also, when I'm back home in Atlanta, I like to go to Blast, a studio that combines using the treadmill with lifting weights. Other days, for a slower workout, I'll walk on the treadmill at a high incline for 3 miles. I've taken a few pregnancy Pilates classes too, but I want to save those for when I can't do anything else."
As you can see, the 36-year old actress is all about balance and proves to us once again that listening to your body is the most important component of prenatal fitness.

Her approach to nutrition? Glad you asked!
"I eat a lot of salmon because it's said to be so beneficial," says Rollins. "I like to make grilled cedar-plank salmon. Here's how: Soak your cedar plank for an hour, then place a large salmon filet on it. Mix one part olive oil to one part Dijon mustard, and spread it in a thin layer on the fish. Season with salt, freshly ground pepper, one finely chopped shallot, and parsley. Grill over medium-high heat for 20 minutes with the lid closed until it's crispy. Squeeze fresh lemon over it and enjoy."
That recipe sounds delicious, and we're definitely adding it to our list of dinner recipes to try this month.
Though she does a good job of eating healthy for her bump, the actress also admits she has had intense cravings for sugar, butter, and carbs throughout her pregnancy. Glad we're not the only ones!

And Rollins gets even more real with her candid comments on her pain threshold and how she feels about natural birthing.
"I have a really low threshold for pain, and I'm not too proud to say I'll probably take drugs for the birth. I know women can do it the natural way - and have been forever - but I also know me. Get me those drugs! I think labor is going to be awful, but also beautiful, and at the end it'll have the most amazing outcome."
