Mix Up Your Workouts

Ashley maintains variety with exercises, doing a lot of different workouts. "I usually do Pilates three days a week for an hour, and I try to box or do SoulCycle two or three times a week," she told Health. "There are times I just want to do nothing! But then I don't feel good about myself."

Ashley's favorite move is "probably squats—and not for my butt but for my legs," she told Health. "We usually do circuit training, so I'll do 25 squats, then I'll run back and forth, and then I'll do lunges to the other side of the gym both ways, run, then squats. I can't move for days!"

Ashley prioritizes sleep. She even manages to sneak in some z's during the day.  "I try to take an hour nap. If I don't get sleep, I found that I get really bad anxiety. I started getting panic attacks for two years straight," she told Health.


Eat Healthy

Ashley eats very healthy starting the day with a hard-boiled egg with iced coffee and a splash of half and half for breakfast, followed by a salad (or cheeseburger!) for lunch and fish if she is "trying to be healthy" for dinner. "Otherwise, probably a cheeseburger," she confessed to Delish

"I've kind of taken a step back from social media," Ashley told Elle. "I don't want to spend my life on Instagram. I think it was necessary when I was on the show and now that I'm getting into new projects, but I feel like as I'm getting older I don't want people to see everything I'm doing all the time. I think it's very important to keep your private life private. Just let the fans see my work and then I can have my own personal life."
