The 31-year-old, who is known for sporting sexy dresses to the Oscars and next to nothing in her music videos, says staying in shape is no easy task, especially with her busy schedule.
"You know, I push myself and I push myself, and every once in a while, I hit a wall, I get burned out, I get tired, I need a few days off, but on the most part, for the most part, I love what I do. So I push myself, you know? I do. It is part of who I am. So I really think for me right now, it's about finding a balance and kind of taking care of myself and doing what I love and not going overboard."
She's also agreed to a deal with NBC for a series of music specials, the first of which is scheduled to air this fall. The network is also developing a sitcom loosely based on her family and the neighborhood in which she grew up.
Despite the spotlight and the demanding schedule, Lopez says she is enjoying her life and her career and she doesn't plan on slowing down.
"It's fun all the time. It's a wonderful thing, but just like anything, it's life. It's real. I'm human, and things, you know, there's ups and downs, but it makes the ups so much better."
