The Healthy Project: Starring Mindy Kaling

The actress and writer reports back after surviving Q's live-better challenges.

Motivation is at an all-time high in the New Year, and, turns out, TV stars feel it just as strongly as the rest of us. In the spirit of trying new things, and inspired by tonight's episode of The Mindy Project (9:30pm ET/PT on FOX), in which Mindy Kaling's title character enlists Danny (actor Chris Messina) to be her personal trainer, we presented the actress with three healthy ways to push herself. Kaling, who is also a writer, producer and director—clearly not one to shy away from a challenge—was more than happy to step up to the plate.
