On working out:
I’m passionate about working out. I love it. I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been in, and I have a healthy relationship with my body. I’m in a really good place right now.

On being single:
I have this time to grow and focus on me. The mind and body results after you do a workout you enjoy are incredible. 

On her self-worth:
As I get older, my body is always changing. Right now I have so much energy, my skin looks good, and my butt is higher than it’s ever been. I’ve been skinnier and I’ve been a little bit bigger, and I’m never hard on myself one way or the other. The fact that I’m active, eating well, and taking care of myself is all that matters—not a number.

On her body instinct:
If I have one of those days when I don’t want to work out, I ask myself why. I’ve learned how to listen to my body and know what I need in that moment. And I'm grateful for that. It took me a very long time to get to this place. Now I can tell when my body is saying to take a break from working out, or when it’s saying, No, you’re being a little lazy, so that I can push myself to get going.

On loving what she eats:
I was a vegan for a while, I was a vegetarian for 10 years, and now I’ve incorporated meat back into my diet. I eat as healthy as possible because I know food fuels me. I usually start my day with avocado toast or a green smoothie. I love a big salad for lunch; I’m always concocting recipes like kale Caesar or spinach artichoke salad. For dinner I’m flexible. If I’m going out and I want a bowl of pasta, I’ll eat it. I’m not hard on myself. I try to be smart about snacking. I’ll slice two oranges in the morning and leave them on a dish in my kitchen and eat them throughout the day. I always have blueberries and carrots and hummus on hand. And I like little bags of Popchips or Pirate’s Booty if I’m watching TV. I keep my snack options at home super healthy.

On her life right now:
I don’t take any day for granted. I realize how lucky I am. I have an amazing job, great  opportunities, and a fantastic family and group of friends. I genuinely wake up every day with a really big smile on my face because I love my life.
