She Hikes

Carson shares some of her fitness secrets on her blog. In this post, she revealed that she hikes to stay in shape. "Hikes are a go to for me. Whether you are in the mood to walk or run, they are a great way to get some fresh air and get your body going. It's also a great way to hit those steps. The best part is you can even bring your furry friend for an added bonus. Hiking with Cars is probably one of my favorite dates – it's an easy, no-fuss activity that we both love!


She Does Push-Ups

Carson likes to do at-home workouts. She shared some of her favorites in this post on her blog. "Push-ups for days," she writes. "Regular old push-ups are STILL one of the most difficult exercises for me. I'm more motivated than ever to master them! If it's too much on your toes and shoulders at first, lower down to your knees for a modified version."


She Cooks

Carson likes to cook healthy meals for herself. She shared some of her favorites in this blog post. "Chicken tacos are a great meal to end the day. Packed with protein, these are super filling and keep you full for the rest of the night. Begin by combining chicken, lemon, olive oil in a large pan over a medium heat. You can then add seasoning with garlic powder, onion powder, and bay leaf. Cook until the chicken is no longer pink. Once the chicken is cooked, you can place the chicken in a soft or hard taco shell based on your preference. Then place lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, salsa, sour cream, and guacamole on top! Let me know your favorite meals to cook at home!"


She Loves Outdoor Yoga

In her workout blog post, Carson revealed that she loves to practice yoga. Specifically, she likes going outside to do it. "A sunrise or sunset yoga session is a must during the Summer. I love doing yoga at the beach or at a scenic outlook. It's a great way to unwind, take in nature, and tone your muscles. Recently I have been thinking about taking some yoga teacher training classes, like those offered by I am so intrigued by all the different techniques."


She Stays Hydrated

In order to stay in shape for Dancing With The Stars, Carson has to eat healthy. She shared her food diary with People. She says that staying hydrated is important to her. "The most important thing is to drink as much water as you can throughout the day – it will keep your skin healthy, your body healthy, and your mind. Nothing feels as good as being healthy does!"
