She Experiments With Baking

Collins likes the challenge of baking something healthy. "When I splurge, it's usually on things that I've baked, because it's satisfying physically and emotionally," she said. "I'm not gluten-free or vegan, but I love baking things because of the sense of accomplishment I get from creating something that's yummy and healthy." She added: "I make everything from doughnuts to birthday cakes and banana walnut bread. There was a time when I wouldn't let myself taste those kinds of foods, let alone make them. I bake from the heart. I put love out there, and it goes right back in."


She Strives for Balance, Not Perfection

Collins is realistic about her health and wellness goals and aims for balance. "I also treat myself to the occasional dessert when I'm out with friends," she said. "But on the daily, I want to give my body what it needs to be the best version of myself."


She's Active Daily

Colllins works out or moves her body every day. "To be honest, I try to be active in some way every day. It's my time to disappear and be in my own world," she said. "I can also push myself past what I thought I was capable of. Of course, if I'm traveling or tired, I give my body a rest. I used to feel guilty if I skipped a workout in the past, but now it just means life is offering up things that I want to do instead. Those ellipticals will always be there, but experiences won't."


She Loves to Swim

Swimming is an excellent workout and easy on the joints. "I'm a Pisces, so I love swimming whenever I can," she said. "I was on the track team in high school and hated it, but now I like to run by myself and listen to my music. But what I love most is Body by Simone. It's a method that incorporates strengthening and toning. I've been training privately with a trainer there, and we do isometrics and ballet moves. It's not CrossFit, but it keeps me on my toes."


Eating Healthy Is a Lifestyle

Collins treats being healthy and strong as a lifestyle. "I'm a clean eater. I love chicken, fish and vegetables and grains like quinoa, but I don't eat red meat," she said. "I steer clear of processed foods. I'm very farm-to-table; growing up in the English countryside, it was a way of life, not a trend."
