“I feel as good now as I ever did in my 20s and 30s, maybe even better physically,” she admitted in a gorgeous one-piece bathing suit. “What I’ve learned is that if you train hard, you can offset some of what you’ve got going against you. People look at me and say ‘Wow, she doesn’t seem old, but she is old.’ Meanwhile, the reality is if you’re strong, you’re beautiful, no matter what age you are.”

And she works hard to keep up her incredibly toned physique, “Once I started doing Pilates, I lost my taste for things like cheeseburgers and french fries. The Pro Chair is great because it allows you to do a full-body workout in just 20 minutes. You can do cardio on it too…. I rarely eat dessert, never snack, and I don’t eat a lot of bread and pasta. [And] I’ll have one glass of champagne when we go out to dinner, but I don’t drink at home.”

But she’s enjoying sharing her progress on Instagram, “I’m a private person by nature, so at first I really didn’t think it was for me. [While vacationing in St. Barts] I put on a bikini, my husband took some pictures, and a friend of mine said, ‘You need to post this shot on Instagram!’ The reaction was very unexpected—and sooo flattering. After the pictures came out—and they went everywhere—it occurred to me that Instagram could be a great way to stay connected to my fans.”
