Women’s Health Cover Star for September 2014: 

Am I the only person in the world who has never seen one episode of The Big Bang Theory? I guess so because it is one of the most popular sitcoms on TV right and the stars of the show just got HUGE raises according to Entertainment Weekly so what am I missing out on, people? Should I check it out?

Anyhoo— Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting has been on the show for eight seasons and is now married to pro tennis player Ryan Sweeting. Inside the magazine she talks about boosting your self-confidence, making quick decisions, “instant attitude swaps” and her complete devotion to all things pertaining to Jennifer Anniston.

In spite of super-busy the comedienne tells Women’s Health she is ready to get into the mommy-making business as soon as possible while also starring on the hit show (tough life!)

Kaley also stars in the Fall Fashion Guide in the back of the magazine which you can see here.

Women’s Health Cover Star for June 2014: 

OMG—it’s Miranda Lambert on the cover and I could NOT be more excited. Not only is she a kickass artist (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is a favorite tune of mine) but she also is a domestic abuse victim’s advocate (growing up her parents would take in women & children who were from abusive environment to help them get their on their feet) AND a friend of the animals who loves to take in stray dogs.

In approach of her upcoming 30th birthday Miranda decided to trade unhealthy eating habits for a balanced diet and workout schedule and has lost somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 pounds (she is not a huge fan of scale-watching.) Though offered mega bucks by huge weight loss brands to lose 40 pounds she decided to forgo the skinny-chick hype and keep it real. (She is stunning by the way!)

She offers us a look at her workout created by Crutch Boot Camp in Nashville owner Bill Crutchfield:
