She Loves Fruit

In her most recent Instagram photo, Daly is seen enjoying a plate of different fruits for a snack. The plate included watermelon, purple grapes, mango, and raspberries. "A watermelon is between 90% and 95% water so it's a sweet way to stay hydrated in summer's heat. They're such a great source of essential hydration that early explorers carried them instead of canteens. It's no wonder it's one of the best water-rich, hydrating foods," says our sister site Eat This, Not That!


She Pushes Herself and Cuts Herself Some Slack

Daly tells Women's Health that she is a very confident person, and that she developed said confidence from both pushing herself, and going easy on herself. "Confidence comes from cutting yourself some slack. I'm in my fifties now. That's still a shock when I say it out loud, because I don't feel any different to when I was in my thirties. But I don't fixate on age as a limitation, because it's never held me back…confidence, to me, is just pushing yourself a little bit further than you think you can go, and you'll always surprise yourself."


She Works With A Personal Trainer

Daly tells Women's Health that she works with personal trainer, Sam Shaw, to keep herself in shape. Even when the pandemic hit, Daly says her and Shaw would still meet up virtually to workout. Daly says that Shaw is great at targeting the areas on her body that need work, saying, "He's brilliant because he focuses on what you need individually. I've got a long spine, so I've got to work on my core."


She Runs On The Treadmill

Daly tells Women's Health that she has a treadmill at home, and that she likes to use it while she watches her favorite shows. "I've realized I can watch Netflix and run 5k at the same time," she says. "I would never sit down and watch TV in the day but, on the treadmill, I can justify it."


She Uses Weights

Daly is a fan of strength training, and using weights to workout. She posted this video of herself on Instagram doing chest flys with weights. She captioned it, "Trying to fly without (bingo) wings!"


She Practices Meditation

Daly tells Women's Health that she makes sure to prioritize her mental health, and practicing meditation has really helped her out."I met Deepak Chopra and went to one of his retreats, which was great fun because he's all about mindfulness, being in the moment and self-care," she said. "In these busy hectic lives that we all lead, I think it's great, if you can, to take out 20 minutes at the start of the day just for yourself to meditate and sit quietly, because the day definitely flows better afterwards."
