Carole Radziwill is entering 2022 with a continued focus on her health. "It's the time of year when people reassess," The Real Housewives of New York City alum captioned a January 7 Instagram post. "I don't make new year resolutions but I like hitting goals, short (sleep 7 hours) and long. Health is a long one."

Carole went on to explain that after spending her "entire adult life eating junky & avoiding the gym," she "decided to make health a priority" after running the New York City marathon in 2017. "Yes I was born with a strong metabolism and sporty genes," she wrote. "That helps but it doesn't guarantee health."

With that in mind, Carole made major changes to her routine including "eating clean (no dieting or calorie counting) and working out." 

For Carole, finding a go-to fitness method took some time. "You have to find the exercise that works for you," she shared, noting she was "bored" by yoga and "knew running was stressful on joints long term." Eventually, she started weight training. "I loved it," she declared. "Females don't necessarily associate lifting as exercise for women but it's the best kind as you get older."

"I'm not excessive about it but I am consistent," she continued. "As with the marathon, slow & steady wins the race. I train 3, sometimes 4, days a week for 50 mins. Never longer. But always at least 3 days. I focus on lifting weights and not cardio because that works for my body type. I've built muscle, gained pounds and lost inches. My body mass index is 'athletic' whatever that means. I'm no athlete but I feel strong when I used to feel scrawny."
