Cheryl tells PEOPLE, after coming home from a Caribbean vacation with her boyfriend, model Maxwell Zagorski, that shedding the pounds and maintaining “the ideal weight for me” has been relatively simple. “I gained a few pounds and everybody was talking about it last year,” she said.”But taking it off was simply a matter of doing a bit more cardio to supplement my dancing. I’m also making sure I eat clean foods and healthy snacks.”
She attributes her healthier lifestyle to her boyfriend. “He’s a much better cook than I am and it helps when we eat meals together that are healthy as opposed to going out for dinner, which I did a lot when I was single,” Cheryl added. The vacation was a much needed break from her busy schedulesince the end of Dancing With The Stars.

Over the summer she’ll be working on designs for her line of fitness wear and wants to develop a line of casual workout shoes. “There’s this huge explosion of things that have happened in my life in the past three years and I’m so grateful,”Cherylsaid, noting that best of all, more people than ever before are taking up dancing.
“People are seeing that it’s a great alternative to going to the gym,”Cheryl said.”It’s a great way to do something really healthy for your body and you don’t even know it because you have so much fun doing it.”
