The television star maintains her slender figure by being healthy in general. Aside from being cautious of her eating habits, she also makes sure she has an active lifestyle. Staying active makes her have sufficient energy to go about her day efficiently. When asked about her workout routine despite her busy shooting hours, she said: “I try to slip exercise in to my daily routine as much as possible. When I am shooting long hours it can be difficult, especially when I have early call times. If I’m not able to attend a ballet or structured exercise class, I do my own exercise routine that consists of a Pilates mat class. I also bring an exercise band to set and do leg or arm work between scenes.”
She also revealed how her love of ballet hasn’t changed despite being a full-time actress. She admitted: “I still love ballet. I try to take classes when I can, it’s cathartic for me, and something my body continues to crave. I don’t run as much as I would like because of a back-injury. When I do run, I have to be very cautious about my posture. It’s quite frustrating that I can’t run more often because my husband is an avid runner, and even completed his first marathon last year at 2:51:31!”
