Ayesha Curry is starting the new year focused on her health. 

During an interview, the mother of three revealed she’s not into “resolutions” but sets monthly goals to keep track of her small wins. Ayesha told People, 

“One of my big resolutions for January is going to be to build a little bit of lean muscle.” She continued, “I’ve lost 35 lbs. over the past year, which I’m really excited about, but now I want that definition and I want to feel strong in my skin.”

Ayesha also spoke on what it’s like being married to an athlete who “does it all” and developed an “inner competition.” She said, “I’m married to a high-performance athlete who does it all. And I think I had to be honest with myself and realize that I can’t do that, and I don’t have to do that to see the results that I want to see.” She went on to say, 

“I kind of had this inner competition that didn’t exist. And so I was almost always defeated in whatever it was that I was doing because I couldn’t do it to that level. I think I had to take a second, take a deep breath and just realize, do what you can and that’s enough.”

Steph and Ayesha got married on July 30, 2011. They have three amazing children, two daughters, Ryan, 7, and Riley, 10, and a son named Canon, 4.
