She told Your Fitness magazine earlier this year: "I love the way working out makes me feel, so I try to keep my body hydrated and well rested after every workout so I'm ready to hit it hard again the next day.

"I drink plenty of water, fuel my body with healthy foods and make it a priority to get eight hours of sleep a night. I also love to relax with my kids after a workout and share a healthy snack with them."
