I have a treadmill, and I work out with my trainer, Julie Diamond, as often as possible. She’s so positive. She’s never like, “Move your fat butt!” It’s more like, “Think of how you’ll feel when you’re in great shape.” And she’s right. There are weeks when I don’t exercise at all, and I don’t feel good…For me, it always has to be about health. That’s why I’m a vegan. Well, I don’t even do that for my health entirely, I do it for animals. The point is, there always has to be a better reason than looking good, or I won’t stick with it.
