Access Hollywood‘s own Nancy O’Dell has been doing the SELF Magazine Challenge with close friend and actress Holly Robinson-Peete. The challenge can be used to achieve a variety of goals from weight loss and healthy eating to toning up and trying new activities. It has helped Nancy stay motivated since she injured her knee on “Dancing With the Stars,” and knew her biggest hurdle would be easing back into exercise.

With bikini season around the corner, Nancy’s healthy eating habits are on track thanks to keeping a food journal, but she is still slowly getting back into working out. There is still some time to get swimsuit ready and SELF Magazine has given Nancy and Holly as well as Access Hollywood viewers some tips to stay on track. One tip is that it is important to acknowledge all of your successes, not only those measured in pounds and inches.
