Brooke Burke makes taking care of herself a priority! The “Dancing with the Stars” co-host might juggle motherhood, a TV career, and her online business ventures, but she always manages to find time for fitness. She gets to a Pilates class at least three times a week, hits the treadmill a couple times a week and works out to the 45-minute DVD she created with her trainer. “I don’t think you need more than an hour to do cardio and full-body toning. I don’t have three hours a day to devote to my body, but I do have an hour five days a week,” Brooke shares in the January issue of Fitness magazine.
The Fitness magazine cover girl says the one thing she doesn’t find time for is sleep.
“I think sleep deprivation is a really bad thing for a woman, not only for her skin and eyes but also for her mood, memory, metabolism, energy, and sex drive,” reveals Brooke. She shares with Fitness magazine that she and her husband, actor David Charvet sometimes take “sleepcations,” where they will check into a hotel room to be alone and catch up on their rest.
As for what she’d like to change about her life situation in 2012 - Brooke admits there’s not much!
“I try not to have a lot of bad habits in my life that I need to break come January. Instead, what I like to do is set myself up for success. Every December, David and I go to the beach and sit there and put the past year into perspective. Then I write out a list of goals, and I jot down quick plans. For 2012, I’d like to do a cookbook of recipes that busy working moms like me can make in 15 minutes or less.”
