“Running has always been my go-to workout,” she told the online magazine. “Usually I only have 30 minutes for a workout, so I make sure to make the most out of it. A quick 3-mile run around my neighborhood is what I find maximizes my quick workouts and gives me energy to get through my day.”

And while running is one of her go-to workouts, she gets to spend a lot of time burning calories while chasing six-year-old daughter Taylor and one-year-old son Brayden. Just because you’re not at a gym, doesn’t mean you can’t get a nice cardiovascular workout by playing or running with your children. She said they “always keep me moving, so just keeping up with them is a workout in itself!”

Even when her kids aren’t ready to help mom stay healthy, she counts on their French bulldog Cash to pick up the slack!

No matter how many workouts you fit into your day, or don’t, try to eat healthy the majority of the time. El Moussa’s tips may seem logical, but you’d be surprised how many people opt for trendy diets that restrict you from many healthy foods. And of course, make sure you remember to stay hydrated all day with enough water.

“I stay away from fast food and fried foods and try and eat organic meals prepared at home,” she explained. “I don’t drink anything during the day besides coffee in the morning and then lots of water.”
