Tia Mowry graces the cover of Women's Running magazine this May, and the 35-year-old actress and mother is looking especially fit in a pink tank and black running shorts. 

You may remember Tia from her '90s hit show (Sister, Sister, anyone?) but now she stars on her own show, Instant Mom, on Nick at Nite.

The actress opened up about how her diet and exercise routine changed dramatically after being diagnosed with endometriosis. Four years ago she found out she had this condition that can potentially cause infertility, and so her doctor recommended working with a nutritionist to overhaul her diet. "Sugar was like a drug I was addicted to," Tia admits to Women's Running

And as a busy mom to her son, she reveals that running is her number one favorite way to exercise. "Running is my go to workout," she says. "If I'm traveling, I can just put on my shoes and go. It's the easiest workout you can do."

And as for her fitness advice for new moms, Tia has a pro-tip: "Start slow. Work out two to three times a week in the beginning. As you get stronger again, you can start working out four times a week, then maybe five," she explains. "Set small goals, and only set new goals once you accomplish the small ones."
