In November, the mom of three revealed exclusively to PEOPLE that she was revamping her health routine in an effort to challenge herself after she noticed her usual habits weren't working following the birth of daughter Rani Rose in October 2018.

"I'm definitely challenging myself in new ways, which I need," Hudson told PEOPLE. "I like to be able to set new goals to see what I can accomplish, and I love how flexible and strong I feel after a good workout, especially doing Pilates, which never gets easier."

She said that she makes a point to get active every day, in any way she can.

"I need to be moving to feel good," she said. "Even just making time for a little movement every day — going for a walk, doing a few minutes on the treadmill, some Pilates, or if I have more time for it, I love hot yoga."

And Hudson said that she never deprives herself of the foods and drinks she wants, but she just makes sure to keep track of her choices with WW.

"I have never been an extremist. I love food. And I love a good cocktail," she admitted. "For me, it's really about everything in moderation; I stay mindful of what I put in my body and remember that it's OK to enjoy yourself; WW emphasizes that living a healthy life doesn't mean feeling deprived."
