Kate Gosselin is no stranger to hard work — and when the reality-show mom of eight wants something, she goes for it.
As OK! reported last week, Kate is ready to find love again and she's determined to look her best, should love knock on her door.
"She was really happy with how her body changed on DWTS. She loved that she could show her stomach and feel good about herself," a source tells OK!.
So when she noticed a few extra pounds coming on, she started running and working out on the elliptical every morning (at 5 or 6 a.m.!) for an hour. "It's her 'me time' to zone out before the kids are awake," adds the source.
