The 28-year-old Dancing with the Stars judge shared her diet and exercise philosophy with PEOPLE, noting that it’s important to listen to your body.

“I try to cut myself some slack if I’m being consistent with my nutrition and activity,” Hough says. “If I am craving a piece of chocolate I go for something dark to satisfy the craving.”

When it comes to exercise, she says “just try to move your body every day” and don’t be too hard on yourself if you miss a workout.
