Knock, Knock! Who’s There?
Knock, Knock! Who’s There?
On the fact that her last batch of bikini photos was photoshopped to make her look worse:
I saw these awful photos of myself when I was on a trip in Mexico and people were Photoshopping them and sharpening them. I definitely was not in my best shape. I hadn’t worked out in about 12 weeks, I’d had two surgeries on my uterus. We documented that on the show. But I was already not feeling like myself and when people were like sharpening them and making them look way worse and then those were going around, I was like “Ok, I’m going to get it together” and I started working out with this bodybuilder girl.
On starting to get in better shape after the bikini photos:
I definitely think that you have to do the work. I get up every morning between 5:30 and 6; workout before my kids get up. I’ve been working out for an hour and a half. I was eating less thinking like, “Okay. I’m just not gonna eat this,” But I was eating absolutely no carbs or trying to and that’s really hard for me. With her new fitness guru, Kim says she’s learned to eat more of the right things, as she explained: ‘She’s really helped me with my meal plan to definitely add healthy carbs, vegetables. I was just not eating properly. I see already, in just a few weeks, my body tightening up. I’ve literally just shrunk and come into place and I’m excited. We’re doing these intense workouts and I love working out. That’s a big stress reliever.
On receiving criticism:
I have thick skin and this isn’t for everyone. I can see why people get hurt and are bothered by it. I do break down at times. I’m just like it’s not okay for people to say these awful things. For people to have all this keyboard courage to say the craziest things about you is okay and it’s not okay.

On why she works out:
To workout used to be [about] what I look like. Now I need it for my mental health. If I don’t work out, I don’t feel like I started my day correctly [or] am in a good place mentally. It’s all about taking time for myself. It’s so much more fun now.
On her favorite workouts:
Dance cardio stuff, Body by Simon or Tracy Anderson. I go to dance classes. I mix it up all the time, that shocks your body.
On her favorite body part:
I actually fluctuate quite regularly. I distribute my weight very evenly. It looks like I’ve only gained five pounds but in fact I’ve gained 15. My favorite body part is probably my stomach because it never really gets rolls. It’s a blessing and curse to have weight [distributed] evenly.
On her workout secret:
A lot of people focus on goals. More recently it’s become a lifestyle rather than a diet [or] a goal for something. I don’t want to fluctuate because that’s harder work. I don’t think I’ll do a pre-wedding workout diet fad thing. I want to look like me.
On eating carbs constantly:
[Carbs] at every single meal. I think when you deprive yourself, that’s when you crave pasta and pizza. Everybody is so afraid of carbs – they talk about them in a negative way, like, ‘Carbs make me fat or bloated’ – but just pick the right one and have a little bit.

On working out:
Between travel, meetings, and shoots, schedules are rough for me. I try to work out three times a week, but I don’t believe in getting on one machine for 30 minutes. If I do a lot of cardio, it usually just means I’ll be dragging my feet for the rest of the day. And when I’m shooting, I really don’t like to be strict with my workout, since I’m already putting in 16-hour days. So I do 20-minute intervals either at the gym or at home, where I run in place for 30 seconds, then do squats, then carry a heavy medicine ball a few times in a row until I get my heart rate up.
On her lifestyle:
I can’t work out regularly, so I compensate by eating a lot healthier than I might otherwise. Once you have relatively healthy eating habits, your workout can become playing with your kids, strolling around the neighborhood, playing airplane, or just changing diapers.
On not believing in diets:
I don’t believe in cheat days because I don’t believe in diets. I try not to deprive my body of anything, because the moment I have just salads and protein for a few days, I crave carbs. But when I eat everything in balance, I think less about food and more about everything else. It’s about eating to live, not living to eat.
On her food philosophy:
If my husband and I had different professions, where we didn’t need to shop in supermarkets and could live more naturally, we could eat more sustainably. I grew up partially in the Dominican Republic, and I remember what eating was like when my grandma would pick herbs from her garden and we’d get seafood that had been caught that morning. Life was very simple and much healthier. It’s not that I like to eat superlight, just superclean. I like food that is fresh. I don’t go for things that come in can—and I’m losing trust in things that come in plastic. And we’re starting to move in the direction of becoming a vegetarian family; society has a very violent, dysfunctional, and wrong relationship with how we cultivate and produce meat. So if I have to pay more to eat better, then I’ll just balance my checkbook better. For example, I’d rather get the dark chocolate with goji berries than the milk chocolate packed with saturated fat.
On her idea of beauty:
If we could design ourselves, we’d all be perfect. But we can’t, so why be unhappy about it? I’ve never wanted different hair or my body any other shape. And I’ve never thought of a person as ugly unless they opened their mouth and their heart was full of venom.
