She Prioritizes Fitness

Lucy understands the importance of fitness. "I think the more things you try and the more active you become, the more confident and comfortable you become with yourself," she explained to People about how she motivates herself to exercise. "I'm much happier, my mood is better when I'm consistently working out. I'm just one of those weirdos who likes working out. I really enjoy it."

Lucy works out with a trainer and also does group fitness classes "[My trainer's] the one who's forcing me to try pull-ups, so every couple of days we'll try to do more," she told People. "But I also like group fitness. I think that's a way you can see your friends and break a sweat but still have a good time. I do things like Soul Cycle and Training Mate. I love to hike."

She Is Mostly a Pescatarian

Lucy shies away from most animal products. "I mainly follow a pescatarian diet," she explained to People. "I don't even like to say diet, just a pescatarian lifestyle. I don't do dairy and I try to cut back on processed stuff. I typically like to prepare all my food so I know what I'm getting."

It's All About Moderation

Lucy eats healthy…most of the time! "I love going out to eat. I'm not going to say no to French fries or pasta if it's there. I just try to eat in moderation," she dished to People.

"I think about breakfast all the time," Lucy confessed to Harper's Bazaar. "I like all the meals, but I think breakfast is definitely my favorite. But my breakfast can vary from a peanut butter, Perfect food bar to chocolate chip pancakes, with bacon and eggs. Just kind of depends on the day."

She Does a Lot of Strength Training

"I do a lot of strength training because I like to feel strong," she revealed to Shape. I'm 5-foot-2, but I like to feel like a badass and to know that I could kick someone's ass. So I do pull-ups and do squats with the big-boy weights. I even flipped one of those big tires once. And I just discovered Pilates. My butt has never been higher, and my abs have never been stronger. Our bodies are so amazing and resilient, and we don't give them enough credit. I spent much of my teen years and early 20s not loving my body and not being good to it. I'm trying to make up for that because we get only one body. We have to take care of our temple."

She Preactices "Intuitive Eating"

Lucy loves eating, but finds that sticking to a strict diet messes with her head and makes her obsess. "I call it intuitive eating," she explained to Shape about how she eats. "If I'm craving chicken, I'll have chicken. If my body is saying, 'Don't reach for the doughnut,' I don't reach for the doughnut. If my body is saying, 'You deserve a doughnut,' then I'll do it. But I'll never give up coffee. I'll never give up my lattes or bread. There was a phase in my life when I didn't eat bread. What the hell was I thinking?"
