On her favorite workouts:
"If it's with my kids or we're going on a hike with the dogs or jumping in the swimming pool, or we have a gigantic trampoline in the backyard. Every once in a while I go on the treadmill, but I don't love that so much. I like the outdoors a lot."
On her motivators:
"In New York City I run on the West Side Highway because I get really inspired when I see other people running. It is packed with people running. If you go every day you recognize people and you're like, 'Oh my gosh, it's this person and this person. Everyone kind of comes early in the morning at the same time and they kind of keep me going because if they can do it, I can do it too."
On her body as she ages:
"The metabolism definitely changes when you turn 40. I always thought, that's not going to happen to me, but it is happening to me. If I indulge more, I have to exercise more. I figured out what works for me. I'll eat everything but the pasta and bread. Do I want the pasta? I do. But I choose not to eat it. [I was] out to dinner this weekend, and truffles are in season. I had to have the truffle pizza and the truffle pasta. It's not like I don't [indulge], but not all the time. My mom fries everything and drenches it in cream sauce. Anytime she comes to visit, it's like - boom! - two pounds [for me]."
On her body confidence:
"Me? I've always felt great about my body. I've always been very confident, and I still am. I wouldn't go to the gym in a sports bra and little shorts - I feel like everything's jiggling around. But I didn't do that before, either."
