In the caption, she wrote that her healthy lifestyle is for her and for her loved ones, which of course include the three children she has with husband and NBA star Stephen Curry.

I started my fitness journey because I wanted to be strong and healthy for myself and the people who depend on me, she wrote. But it was important that I did it my way, which meant I needed working out to fit in my life, not take me away from it.

While Curry has partnered up with Fitbit this summer for a new exclusive series, she also tells Yahoo Canada Lifestyle that the premium subscription has helped her stay on track with her exercise goals. It was great while I was traveling and out of my routineI was able to tap into the vast library workout content anytime, anywhere so I didnt fall off track, she says.

On top of that, shes managed her health by doing everything from quick 10-minute workouts to creating yummy and healthy recipes. Below, Curry explains the small changes that helped with her weight loss journey and helpful tips that kept her on track.

Despite having a hectic schedule, Curry began her fitness journey by carving out timeeven just a few minutesto exercise. While Curry mentioned that she "hates the term balance," she says the best approach is to make every workout session work for you.

I dont think theres any formula that works for everyone, but I do believe that creating time for yourself to exercise is never time wasted, she says.

A few quick exercises that she likes to tackle for a weight and cardio combo? Workouts that focus on core body strength, legs and glutes, arm circuits, and HIIT bodyweight workouts, to name a few. Some of her workouts will actually be available on the Fitbit app, she says, but theyre a constant in her personal workout routine.

In the past, Curry revealed that her workout routine involves HIIT, floor exercises, and cardio. And as you can tell, all of these can be done without workout machines (although, theres nothing wrong with hitting the gym)!

Get yourself some simple equipment, such as two and three-pound weights, resistance bands, a good, cushy mat, and a bench or chair. Im very into bodyweight, so I dont need much, equipment-wise, Curry says.

Although Curry revealed in an Instagram Story, that shes down 35 pounds, and very happy to be, she refuses to follow strict diets as part of her routine. Instead, she practices mindful eatingwith a heavy focus on nutritious foodsand eating in moderation.

Im really into portion control over any kind of diet, and try to stick to nourishing, delicious food in moderation, she explains.

What kind of delicious food? Well, the celebrity chef definitely knows how to turn veggies into a whole, exciting meal that her entire family will enjoy. If it isnt yummy, you know you wont want to eat it on rotation.

Curry fondly says were a green veggies family due to the amount of healthy greens she incorporates into their meal planfrom asparagus to broccoli to Brussels sprouts. But its how she cooks them that makes our mouths drool.

I like to roast them on high heat to give everything a nice char and enhance the flavor of the veg, she says. Theres nothing I love more than a one-pot/one sheet pan dinner, so most nights Ill season up a protein and roast it alongside the vegetables.

However, if shes just craving some good ol comfort food, she simply lightens up the ingredients to give it a healthier kick. Curry tells Yahoo Lifestyle Canada that chicken parm is a nostalgic meal for her since it was one of the first meals she made for her husband when they first began dating. I do a lighter breading using panko instead of regular bread crumbs, and whip up a super-fast and fresh tomato sauce for the topping, she explains.

Oh, and theres that glorious cheat meal. Curry said she changed her entire diet (except for Sundays). Same.
