"Here and there, if I've been naughty, I'll jump on the elliptical but I really don't go crazy," the TV personality revealed. "Life is too short. I make sure that I eat right and I love playing tennis as you can be with friends and be outside. Just do what makes you happy." 

Lara says she stays in shape by playing sports which she loves 

In addition, Lara walks her beloved dogs twice a day and she says that is great for clearing your mind and for squeezing in a little extra activity.

During her interview with HELLO! Lara also opened up about her daughter Katharine's college plans and shared her relief that she still has more time until she leaves home. "We have one more year," she said. "I'm so thankful."
