In the morning, she starts her day with either a smoothie or protein shake. In order to lose weight and get back to her slim figure, Kate took the help of Weight Watchers (WW). Talking about her food choice and diet plan, Kate said, “What works for me is understanding my food, my fitness activity, and how to balance.”
3. Try Something New Everyday
Kate knows how to keep things fresh and how not to make her workout routine boring. In order to stay interested in working out, she changes her workouts every day. “I change my routine,” Hudson said, “I mix it up to keep things fresh.”
She added, “I love how flexible I get and what this does to the shape of my body.” Some days, Hudson takes her bike and rides it around the neighborhood while on other days, she loves to stay at home and do workouts there.
4. Enjoy Your Success
Hudson knows perfectly how to enjoy your achievement. She gives herself treats on a weekly basis. She likes to enjoy her success with a pizza, tacos, or margaritas. Talking about which, Kate said, “I’ve done it (lost weight) without stressing on food or working out like crazy, although I have been disciplined,”
5. Achieve the Peace of Mind
Kate meditates on a daily basis to achieve peace of mind. It is very necessary for her if we take into account her busy schedule. It has a very positive impact on her health too. “Meditation has been the most helpful and life-changing thing for me. You can feel the difference when you meditate on a regular basis,” Kate said.
