On her dentists' advice to avoid sugar:
"The results were amazing. I dropped a couple jeans sizes and stopped craving sweets."

On her intense exercising regime:
"When it comes to my workouts, I push myself really hard- that's part of the fun!"

On overcoming her fear of the ocean for her triathlon:
"Sure, I practiced in my pool for half an hour twice a week. But that didn't prepare me for when I first stepped in the ocean. I was convinced I'd get eaten by a shark!"

On publishing her own book "The Mommy Diet":
For 20 years, I've been part of some wonderful storylines on Days. I yearned to be part of that process of sharing my own stories with other people. But as an actor, I didn't have that outlet."
