Between being a mom, her acting and now a budding country music career Gwyneth Paltrow has a full life. And now thanks to the newsletter from her successful website GOOP, we have a glimpse into Gwyneth’s busy day.
The Country Strong actress starts off by getting Apple, 6, and Moses, 4 – her kids with husband Chris Martin – ready for school. “Got Apple all fed and dressed in her uniform and ready to go but no sign nor sight of Moses at 8 am and we have to be out of the house by 8:20,” she wrote. “I went up to arouse the little man from slumber and he quite happily got up and crawled into my arms. We got downstairs and I made him a quick breakfast of eggs and toast followed by a spoonful of lemon flavored flax oil that I try to remember to give them both every morning.”
After consoling little Moses – he “was a bit teary today,” she said, Gwyneth next tackled her morning workout: 45 minutes of dance aerobics and then strength training.
While she was in the car en route to rehearsals for her debut singing performance at the November 10 Country Music Awards, Gwyneth did vocal exercises. “Sooo not a good look,” she said. “Fellow drivers looked on a bit bewildered.”
The rest of the afternoon was spent doing phone interviews, checking email and a fitting with her stylist. “We tried on a myriad of dresses and outfits, and I had b.o. by the end of it from wrestling with all of those dresses,” she said.
After the kids came home they made cupcakes for a bake sale, ate dinner and took baths. “It’s hair washing night for the kids (every other night — never popular),” she explained. After dinner Gwyneth still had energy for a night out with friends.
“I rushed downstairs to grab a blazer and some blush and flung myself in the car for girls night,” she said. “Lovely dinner and great conversation. 11:29 pm now, exhausted and ready to do it all again tomorrow!”
