On her struggles with her weight:
Most women go through phases of looking in the mirror and not being happy with what they see. I was letting it affect my entire life. I felt disappointed when I went clothes shopping and guilty about everything I put in my mouth. My appearance permeated every thought and feeling I had about myself.
On using a calendar as her exercise body:
My number-one trick is treating my workout just like any other appointment I have during the day. I look at my schedule for the week and figure out when I have to be at all of my different jobs and when I have time to get a run in or do a yoga class. Then I write it down – I don't have to think about it, I just do it. Period.
On dancing to provide stress relief:
We love to barbecue on our patio and play loud music. Then in the middle of making dinner, someone will yell, 'Dance break!' and the four of us rock out like fools. Having fun is the best way to unwind.
