She may look amazing, but even Lauren Conrad admits to slacking in the exercise department sometimes. At the beginning of her relationship with boyfriend Kyle Howard, the California girl admits to getting a little "soft around the middle."

“I call it the ‘boyfriend layer’,” The former star of The Hills tells Shape magazine. “We were having more romantic dinners out, and I was exercising less.”

So what’s a girl to do? Take her date to the gym, of course! “I just ask Kyle, ‘You feel like working out?’ It’s more fun than hitting the gym alone,” says LC.

The couple spends most of their time outdoors anyway. “We like doing outdoor stuff: tennis, bike riding, kayaking, surfing, hiking,” Lauren Conrad says.
