Instead, she relies on outdoor activities to keep her enviable figure in perfect shape. She lives about three blocks away from the beach, so every day, she heads down to the beach for her running or swimming sessions. In her free time, she also likes to head out for hiking. She complements her active lifestyle by eating as healthy as possible. Also, she makes sure that she remains hydrated throughout the day.
