Hudson is all about getting fit wherever, whenever—including on the slopes. She posted this Instagram with the caption "Skis on, shirts off!" Our thoughts: When you have abs like that, you should be able to show them off.

Dishing In Her "Pretty Happy" Book

Hudson shared some real-talk wisdom in her book, Pretty Happy, which is all about healthy ways to love your body. (And you know we're all about the body love. Just check out our #LoveMyShape campaign.) One of our favorite gems from the book: "When you understand yourself and connect to how you can become body smart, you realize pretty quickly that the perfect, the ideal, is not the goal. Instead, [it is] feeling good in your body. That's what leads to confidence, to feeling and looking fit, and being pretty happy." Preach, girl.
