Patrick shared some of her workout tips with USA Today. She says that fitness is a big priority in her life, and she makes sure to designated both times and places for it. "I would say that having a little bit of a schedule for your workout tends to get you doing it," Patrick said. "So that's helpful. Having a designated space to do it is also helpful if you're doing it at home, so you have a purposeful place for it."

Patrick tells USA Today that she likes to push herself with fitness. "While things are difficult, the amount of confidence you gain from being able to do it or accomplishing it, that seeps into so many other facets of your life," she said. "You believe in yourself entirely — as opposed to just, 'I can do that move.' It's now, 'Oh, you need me to do that work? Sure, I got you.' 'Need me to do that? Sure, I got it.' You tend to get more confident in your life, period, because you realize you can do it if you believe in yourself."


She Adjusts Her Workouts Depending On Her Time

Patrick likes to adjust her workouts depending on how she feels, and how much time she has. "A couple years ago, I was at my parents house, and I did not feel like thinking of a workout that day," she recalled to USA Today. "I was like, 'I wanna workout, but what should I do? I'll just do burpees.' And I was going to do 1,000 burpees for time, and then I looked online and saw that takes over an hour, and I didn't have an hour. So I was like, 'I'll do 500.' And the only thing I stopped for was every 100, I jotted down the time it was on the clock, just to see what my intervals were. I'm pretty sure it took me 35 minutes."


She Walks

Patrick tells USA Today that she loves to walk to stay in shape. "If you are in one of those days and you're just tired, or it's cloudy out, or maybe you're exhausted from traveling or from work or family or kids, just go for a walk," Patrick said. "Honestly, I do that a lot. And I'll go for an hour or an hour and a half, and I'll take the dogs, and it's great exercise from a low-intensity perspective. But you're getting moving, and I think that's the thing I'll do if I'm bored or not energetic."


She Loves Veggies

Patrick makes sure to eat healthy. And she also makes sure to eat a lot of vegetables. Patrick shared this photo on Instagram of herself enjoying a salad. She captioned the post, "Now this is a mountain of veggies! Arugula, tomato, beets, avocado, zucchini, onion, mushroom, kabocha squash, micro greens, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, and a homemade lemon tahini turmeric vinaigrette."
