Apart from being conscious of the foods she eats, the television star also stays in shape by exercising. With her crazy schedule, it’s hard to practice consistency but she tries her best. She runs and performs other kinds of cardio, she does yoga, Pilates, and engages in other activities like hiking. Her on-the-go lifestyle also keeps her physically active. Every time she misses an opportunity to workout due to time constraints, she makes it up by doing the most basic of things, such as taking the stairs instead of using the elevator and walking a lot.
