She Had a Hip Replacement
"I love sports, I love being active, I love challenging myself," Spencer told ABC. "I was a jock growing up from the time I could walk." So she was shattered when told she needed a hip replacement. "It was so upsetting," Spencer said. "I waited for a long time before I did anything about it or told anyone because it sounds like it's an old person's problem and I just couldn't believe it." "It was embarrassing to share and then I realized there is nothing to be embarrassed about," she said. "I have a genetic predisposition for this but if you're athletic and you move, it's happening younger and younger." After the surgery, she said she's "feeling great."
She Gravitates Toward Fresh, Clean Foods
"I eat what I want, in moderation. I gravitate toward fresh veggies and clean foods, thankfully, but I am also a sucker for a cupcake every once in a while. I make sure to eat lots of kale, broccoli, blueberries, strawberries and spinach. We do enough stories on superfoods on GMA. I know what I should be eating, and I really try to stick with that," she told Parade once.
She Swims and Plays Tennis
"I enjoy swimming laps—it's a great workout and also allows me to get into a meditative state so it's very relaxing. I love the quiet and the rhythm of swimming. I do it quite a bit in the summer, but not very much in the winter," she told Parade.
She's a Fan of These Activities
"I turn to yoga, preferably in a warm room, during the cold months. I do yoga year round but find myself craving it more in the fall and winter. I am really into paddle boarding at the moment, too. It's an incredible workout for the arms and core, and a great way to get out on the water," she told Parade.
She Loves Tennis
"Last but certainly not least, I play tennis year round. I am on a USTA team and just got bumped up to a 4.0 rating so I am really excited. As a former athlete, I love the competition. I play both singles and doubles and would play every day if I could! I wish I had known about tennis as a kid. Unlike platform diving, it's a sport I can play for the rest of my life," she told Parade.
