“This year, I want to incorporate more exercise [into my life],” she explained. “Fitness is sort of a fun goal for me this year — and finding new, different ways to work out. … I love to dance and I think if a coupe nights a week I went out to some salsa club and just danced for four hours, that would be fun.”
