Jennifer Hudson does mini workouts in her kitchen.

The Weight Watchers spokesperson, who lost 80 pounds by following the diet programme a few years ago, doesn't always have time to work up a sweat in the gym and uses her oven to time her exercises at home.

The 32-year-old 'Spotlight' hitmaker told PEOPLE magazine: "Sometimes I set the timer on the stove and run up and down my steps until it goes off. You don't even need to go to the gym. Set the timer or microwave for 15 to 20 minutes and you'll work up a sweat."

Jennifer, who has a four-year-old son, David, with her fiancé David Otunga, is currently trying to get her fitness routine back on track after splurging on calorie-laden treats over the festive season.

She said: "I cheated my life away over the holidays. I fixed my son brownies and chocolate chip cookies every day of the holiday season, and Mommy had some too. Several times I went over my points, and it's good to allow yourself that. If you don't give that, that's when you rebel."

The Oscar-winning actress wants to be in good shape for her wedding but recently admitted she keeps pushing the date back.

She said late last year: 'Yes, there was a date set, and that date has come around again every year. In fact, the date may keep rolling around ... When I'm ready to be married, I will be married. It's that simple. Everyone should just chill. Our relationship is very strong. We're both huge family people, and I'm only going to get married once. So I'm not rushing into anything.''
