First Lady Michelle Obama Talks Motherhood and Fitness With Rachael Ray

First Lady Michelle Obama stopped by Rachel Ray’s new studio set to chat about health, fitness and motherhood.  The episode will air on Monday, September 17th.  Here’s a sneak peek at the interview.

How the First Lady gets her daughters, Sasha and Malia, to eat their vegetables:  “They’ll let their opinions be known, but they have to eat what’s on their plates. If theyr’e not hungry I always say finish your vegetables, and then don’t come back for desert, and that usually gets them to finish everything.”

How she stays fit while traveling:  “It’s definitely not easy, because first of all food is comfort, and when your traveling for the campaign, you’re like ‘oh I just want a hamburger and French fries,’ so yeah this is the tough time, but I try to bring a jump rope. I’ll go to the gym, but sometimes being the first lady being in a gym in a hotel kind of messes up the gym experience for everybody else in the hotel so I try to stay in my room.”

The First Lady passes the girls’ math homework off to President Obama:  “Well there are subjects they excel in more than, and you know I just try to make them feel good about themselves. I think it starts with the day to day kind of stuff, I try to give them support so like math, and I’m not great at math. I try to pass the math on to Barack, but sometimes he’s busy.”

She gets up at 4 a.m. to squeeze in her workout time: “Early riser. I’m not a night owl, because I’m up at four o’clock, so I’m asleep at nine. To workout, got to get the workout in before you get on the plane.”
