This Is Us actress Mandy Moore, 33, shares how goal setting, a good workout buddy, and plenty of coffee help her live a healthy, balanced life.

To stay in shape…

I like to switch it up. I work with a trainer sometimes; I’ll go to SoulCycle. I’m a big morning person, so I like to get my workout over with at the beginning of the day.

My trick to making fitness fun is…

Doing it with friends. I love how it’s a fun social thing that you can complain about afterward, like, “Ugh! That was miserable—let’s go get juice.”

The food I can’t resist is…

French fries. I’m never going to pass up a fry, so I try not to order them. Other than that, I’m pretty good about moderation. I’m never going to deprive myself, though. It’s not worth it.

To stay motivated…

I set goals for myself. Talking about them with a friend and having a constant dialogue helps you achieve what you want out of life.

My current ambitions are…

Professionally, I miss music. A goal at the top of my list is figuring out how to incorporate music back into my life, make a record again, and tour. I’ve also wanted to climb Mount Kilimanjaro since I was 18. I figure I have to put it out there or it’s never going to happen.

I feel lucky because…

I have a job that lets me work for causes I’m really passionate about. Right now I’m involved in Merck's  about women’s health, specifically family planning and birth control options. [As women] we’re worthy of having goals for ourselves and having adventure and putting it out there in the ether—I think that’s how [goals] manifest themselves. It's humbling to use this campaign as a way to inspire women to plan ahead, think about their lives, their goals, the adventures they want to take.

I’m addicted to…

Coffee. I try to pace myself with it, but I need it in the morning. It’s not really an option for me. But I feel like out of all the addictions out there, it’s a pretty good one.
