Kelly Osbourne may look svelte and happy after her stint on Dancing With the Stars and a new exercise and diet regime, but as she told us this week at the Glamour Women of the Year awards, she hates working out as much as you do. “I don’t care what anyone else says, working out fucking sucks!” she said. “It does! It sucks! Especially when you have to look at yourself in the mirror sweating, you’re like, ‘Oh, my God. I hate this!’ ” Her advice? “Start small and do it with a friend and keep going from there. That’s the only way to do it. When you go in there and go, ‘I’m going to do this and do this,’ it’s so overwhelming.” Osbourne limits her workouts to half an hour. “I know I can commit to that.”

Also, she makes a playlist of “the gayest pop music that you can imagine; if any of my father’s friends heard the music for my workout, they’d be like, ‘Shame on you!’ But you’ve got to turn the most miserable experiences of your life into something fun.”

And, she insists, dressing up is key. “What I find really helps me is when I put on little cute outfits to go to the gym,” she said. “Because when you’re looking at yourself in the mirror and you don’t like what you see, you’re not gonna want to go back.” Osbourne favors leggings and a ripped shirt with a multicolored bra underneath. She also always does her face: “I know people say, ‘Don’t wear makeup at the gym,’ but I am that girl that wears makeup at the gym. I don’t wear mascara, but I put foundation on and blush and a little lip gloss. It really does help. If you don’t like your reflection, you don’t want to go back. I don’t want to look at myself looking gross. You know what it’s like. You’re like, ‘No wonder I look fucking miserable right now.’ ”
